THE BIGGEST LOSER returns to NBC tonight with a new episode. On tonight’s show the competition goes from teams to singles. 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 the contestants took a pop quiz about obesity in the workplace after meeting host Alison Sweeney in a diner. The location proved significant since that’s where the losing team would be working all week while still trying to eat healthy and exercise with much busier schedules. While the losing team stayed 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 worked closely with his contestant to determine what has been holding him back from bigger weight loss numbers, and another tried 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.
On tonight’s show the 10 remaining contestants reach a milestone this week, as the competition goes from teams to singles. Wearing their new individual color shirts, the players meet host Alison Sweeney for a night-time “ring of fire” endurance challenge that involves holding a percentage of their individual weights. Alison also shares exciting news about an upcoming event that will be a “Biggest Loser” first for contestants, and sobering news that this week’s weigh-in will end with a double elimination. Now that the teams have been disbanded, trainers Bob, Jillian and Dolvett are eager to switch it up and work out with new contestants this week. One player struggles with self-sabotaging negative thoughts, and two contestants make it to the coveted “One-derland” at weigh-in and say goodbye to weighing over 200 pounds. Then it’s time for the dreaded red line, which will determine which two players will be going home.
