NBC THE BIGGEST LOSER returns tonight for an all new episode. On tonight’s episode entitled “Face Your Fears” the six remaining contestants are forced to face their fears. Did you watch last week’s show? We did and recapped it here for you?
Last week’s show players were informed that they would have the chance to win immunity for all week if they lost a collective 70 pounds. They had a chance to lose 10 pounds off their total with the help of returning kid participants Bingo, Lindsay and Sunny, whose brains and brawn were tested in a pop challenge. With emotions and tensions at an all-time peak, the week’s theme of “working together” was a tougher challenge than losing the amount of weight that would keep them all safe for another week. The contestants below the red line last week was Francelina. Francelina was not the biggest loser and she was sent going home.
On tonight’s show It’s “Face Your Fears” week, and the fear of leaving the ranch is the first one addressed when a “save your neighbor” challenge determines which contestant has to leave the ranch and go out on their own for the week – along with another player of their choice. One by one, with the help of trainers Bob, Jillian and Dolvett, each contestant is forced to face their fear – ranging from a fear of sharks to claustrophobia to a fear of singing in public. And they all face fear in a harrowing challenge off the top of a seven-story building that will reward the winner with the most coveted prize of all.
Back at home, the kid participants are also facing their fears head on. Sunny’s very real fear of losing her Mom due to her mother’s weight prompts her to have a very difficult and emotional conversation, while Dolvett arranges for pre-diabetic Lindsay to face her fear of developing the disease by meeting someone with diabetes and learning about their daily challenges. On the lighter side, Biingo faces his fear of eating vegetables! Later, the weigh-in will reveal how the two players out on their own did this week, and will also determine who is leaving the ranch for good, leaving the final five contestants of the season.
