Tonight on NBC THE BIGGEST LOSER returns for an all new episode. On tonight’s show called “Be Yourself” the players work together for a chance to win immunity for all. Did you watch last week’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you?
On last week’s show it was halfway through the competition, and the remaining eight players went to singles. The contestants faced their first temptation in honor of Valentine’s Day, featuring favorite Valentine’s Day treats and the promise of the winner getting a weigh-in-advantage for themselves and a friend. Meanwhile, the trainers continued to motivate the kid participants to stay active and work toward their goals at home. Jillian Michaels arranged for Sunny to take a Bollywood dance class, Dolvett motivates Lindsay to attend a cheerleading practice, and Bingo anxiously waited for news from the doctor about whether he’ll be able to start practicing for the youth baseball league tryouts that Bob set up for him.
On tonight’s show the players learn they’ll have the chance to win immunity for all this week if they lost a collective 70 pounds. They have a chance to shave 10 pounds off their total with the help of returning kid participants Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny, whose brains and brawn are tested in a pop challenge. With emotions and tensions at an all-time high, this week’s theme of “working together” might be a tougher challenge than losing the amount of weight that will keep them all safe for another week.
Two contestants clash, as do Jillian and one of the players that she feels is not performing at the level she should be. But all the contestants will have to work together in an exhaustive sand-digging challenge that could give them another weigh-in advantage. And the trainers and players participate together in an intense team-building challenge, forcing them all to rely on and trust one another. Also this week, Subway’s Jared stops by for lunch and a pep talk, and Jillian and the kids sign Seventeen’s “Body Peace Treaty,” encouraging self-esteem and body acceptance, before a tension-filled weigh-in reveals whether they’ll all be safe – or have to send another player home.
