THE BIGGEST LOSER returns to NBC tonight with a new episode. On tonight’s show one team goes back to work in a diner. Did you watch last week’s episode? We did and we have a full and detailed recap, right here for you.
On last week’s show host Alison Sweeney kicked off last week’s episode with a shocker – one of the contestants was going home and taking their trainer with them, and their weight would be the only weight that counts for their team when they returned in time for the weigh-in. A simple spin of the wheel determined who would be chosen among the players, who would love to reunite with loved ones but are understandably anxious about the intense pressure they’ll face trying to lose enough weight to keep their whole team safe another week. Meanwhile, one trainer brought their contestant back to a sport they once loved, and two players celebrate milestones at the weigh-in before another contestant was sent home.
On tonight’s show, the contestants take a pop quiz about obesity in the workplace after meeting host Alison Sweeney in a diner. The location proves significant since that’s where the losing team will be working all week while still trying to eat healthy and exercise with much busier schedules. While the losing team stays busy waitressing, cleaning up, doing dishes and squeezing in workouts, they still find time to bring “treats” from their day job back to the ranch to tempt other players. Meanwhile, one trainer works closely with his contestant to determine what has been holding him back from bigger weight loss numbers, and another tries to help one player’s family member get started on the path to a healthier lifestyle. Then it’s time for another contestant to head home after a weigh-in that yields surprising results.
The Biggest Loser season 15 episode 9 airs at 8PM on NBC and we will be live blogging it with all the up-to-the-minute details. So make sure to come back to this spot and spend the evening with us! Make sure to refresh often to get the most current details and updates!
