The Biggest Loser Recap: Season 13 Episode 9 – 2/28/12

The Biggest Loser Recap: Season 13 Episode 9 – 2/28/12

The Biggest Loser is back tonight with its 9th episode of the 13th season and we will be covering the show live for you. On last week’s episode Daphne knew she was going to be sent home, she wanted to go home because she was not happy with the toxic atmosphere. Bob told her if she went home he would help her as much as he could. He feels she can succeed at home.

In the elimination room there was so much fighting that Alison had to tell the black team that it was enough.  Predictably Daphne was eliminated and Conda did not shut up.  I wanted to slap Conda through the television.  If you missed last week’s show you can read our official recap here!

On this week’s show the 11 remaining players put what they’ve learned to the test when they all go home for 18 days and are given the chance to gain immunity by losing 5% of their body weight. They’ll also compete individually in a home rowing challenge that will earn the winner $10,000 when they are revealed at the weigh-in. While some contestants struggle with being back in their home environments, others prove they can stay on track, especially with the support of family and friends. Later, the contestants return to the ranch for grueling last chance workouts with trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince before the weigh-in reveals who lost enough to gain immunity.   Then another player goes home in the most emotional elimination.

Meanwhile last week it was reported that contestants of the show were not happy after finding out about a ‘twist’ which could cost them the quarter of a million dollars in prize money that is up for grabs.  Those left standing reckon it’s not fair. Why should someone who left weeks ago be allowed to not only re-enter the competition but also be in the running for the $250,000? So they’ve banded together and given the Producers an almighty belly ache. They actually walked off the set while the cameras were rolling.   Story has it the show is back on track but 2 players were given the boot.  We have no idea who the 2 contestants were but if I was guessing I would say Conda and Kim!

The Biggest Loser airs at 8PM and we will be live blogging it with all the up-to-the-minute details, weigh-ins and elimination. So make sure to come back to this spot and spend the evening with us! While you wait for the recap, check out a sneak peek video of tonight’s show below!

TONIGHT’S RECAP: The contestants are excited they are told they are going home home tonight for 18 days.  They are all nervous.  They are also told that they will get immunity if they can lose 5% of their body weigt while they are home.

All the contestants tell their families how much weight they have lost.  They contestants get a CD and they are told they are off campus but the game is still on and they have to be ready at any moment.  There next challenge is about to begin.  At this very moment there are rowing machines set up for every contestant and they first contestant who rows 10,000 meters will win.  The prize they are giving away cold hard cash.  One dollar for every meter they row.  So the winner gets $10,000.

The contestants are pushing but only one will walk away with $10,000 – we know that the winner will only win by a mere 7 seconds.

Emily decides to go to her favorite bakery to see how she does.  She has a sweet tooth and she wants to see if she can resist.  She thinks it is ridiculous how many bad choices are in front of her.  Buddy is home says he lives in the fast food capital.  He wants goes to buy some chili dogs and cheese fries to see if he is tempted.  Buddy cannot say he has no desire for the chilli hotdog.  Buddy decides these are not the choices he can make again.  Meanwhile Emily decides at the bakery that she will skip the dessert and have tea.

Jeremy is back home where all his excuses started and come from.  He is playing pool with his friends and they all have a beer and he orders water.  His next test is order food with them.  Jeremy feels 18 days to be home is a long time and there is a lot of temptation.

Chism is happy to be back with his band.  He would love to spend lots of time with them but he realizes he has to work out to.  His Dad Mark is happy because they are moving ahead together.

Chris worries now that she is home because they are just making it – they struggle financially and she knows she needs to focus and not let herself get distracted and let it drag her down.

Emily and her father are going to do an Olympic weight lifting workout.  Her Dad realizes he was hard on her.  Emily is nervous – because since she has put on weight she cannot weight lift.  Emily is not using the weight she use to and she is getting mad at herself because she is performing mediocre.  She starts to cry because she is disappointed and embarrassed.  Emily knows power-lifting is not in her future – she has other goals.  She tells her Dad she has a dream to go into an Iron Man contestant.
