Coleen’s Biggest Loser Episode 7-5 Recap

The day has finally come for the eliminated contestants to show what they’ve done after thirty days away from the ranch. The contestants learn that immunity is up for grabs to the team with the player that has the highest percentage of weight loss while they were away. Carla hit it big with a 20 pound weight loss at home but her parade was rained on when Sione lost a stellar 25 pounds!! Home run for the blue team as they take the immunity ticket into this week’s weigh-in.

Got rope? This weeks challenge showed the contestants that they were “tied to each other” in more ways than one. The players were tied to each other and a very long piece of rope, using patience, a plan and team work, the contestants had to unravel enough of their rope to cross the finish line at the other end. The winner has a choice between $5,000 cash or a 2 pound advantage at the next weigh-in. As everyone begins to unravel their rope, with a little extra stretch, Aubrey and Mandi win it for the Yellow Team

This is the first time everyone will weigh-in as a team since the first week on the ranch. The teams weigh-in with great numbers as a few of them returning to the house for the first time in thirty days. When the Silver Team gets on the scale, we see Carla lose eight pounds and Joelle with a zero. Was this zero a reflection of Joelle’s effort on the ranch this week? As it turns out the Brown Team falls below along with the Silver Team. The teams state their pleas to their housemates. After an emotional display from Carla, we don’t hear much from Joelle and whether she wants to be there another week or not. Mike states the obvious by letting the teams know that “words are cheap and actions speak” in that house. With four out of six votes, the Silver Team is sent back to Michigan.

The unstoppable silver bullets are looking truly stunning. I can’t wait to see Joelle reach her goals of being in a size 10 finale dress and best wishes to Carla as she goes for recording breaking weight loss from a female on the Biggest Loser. Carla and Joelle are keeping up on their fitness routine and are ready to blow everyone away at the finale. See how they look today and where their relationship stands in their “Where are They Now” video.

    I thought that Carla lost 9 pounds this week?

    I don’t know what happened to Joelle; last week she seemed motivated, this week she’s back to her old shenanigans.

    They both looked great in the after shots though. Joelle is losing weight at home, which is good because she seemed like something was wrong emotionally the whole time on the ranch so I was skeptical of if she’d continue her journey or not.

    Carla looked fantastic. I can understand how the two wouldn’t be talking to each other.

    Nicole got yelled at a bit by Bob and Jill, but she took it with stride and came back with a huge number this week.

    I think that in retrospect the yellow team could have pocketed the cash and still been above the yellow line, but I can understand why they took the risk with the 2 lb advantage.

    I really hope brown team can start losing the big numbers again. I see that they’re really putting it all in, but I don’t know why they’re consistently falling below the yellow line.

    It sucks for Carla to miss out on the opportunities The Ranch provides, but she’s already proven to everyone she can do it at home. I’d not be surprised if she walks away with the $100k prize this season.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that the Tongans kicked butt this week. I do think they probably drank some water before the weigh-in, but I can’t blame them much because honestly I’d drink a bit of water too if I knew I had immunity.

    I have struggled through every different kind of diet and weight loss gimmic under the sun. Finally I have found a product that works without causing ANY side effects and let’s me be who I am. I do not advertise for the company but if anyone is interested I would be more than happy to share my story and provide you with information on how to loose weight and keep it off for real. Just email me and I will respond as soon as I can.

    it sucks when a competer falls because of there weak partner but its now happened two weeks in a row
    first dan went because of davids fear of being “traped” like tara said “you just dont get it!!”
    and now carla because of joelle to me it looked like she was dragging her hopeing carla would carry her.
    its just sad they should have let david and joelle go and kept dan and carla as a new team (i know it bends the rules but in this case an acception should have bein made)

    just my two cents

    Thanks for the recap Colleen, you always do such an excellent job. I hope that the silver team can continue to lose at home. It’s like Bob has said time and time again, not to have bitterness and hate inside, it’s like a poison. Who knows they could lose so much more if they’d just work things out.
    I hope that the brown team can step it up and lose more although it seems they are already working hard. Maybe with Ron’s bad knees he just can’t work hard enough. But I love their attitudes. Ron seems to be a big encourager to everyone. I hope that they can stay.
    I think everyone is doing a great job and as always it’s going to be hard to see teams go home from here on out.

    Coleen, It’s great to see that your doing so well! I have sent my app. to the BL casting and I was wondering how long did it take you to find out that you were picked? Also how is your Dad doing. You guys were my favorite team. It’s wonderful to see you still going strong keep up the great work-BTSouth

  11. Robin says:
