THE BIGGEST LOSER returns to NBC tonight with a new episode and it is the season 15 finale. On tonight’s show the “biggest loser” will be revealed in the exciting season finale. Did you watch the last week’s penultimate episode? We did and we have a full and detailed recap, right here for you.
On last episode the stakes were higher than ever when the five final players competed in a “Biggest Loser” first — a sprint triathlon, requiring them to swim ½ a mile, bike 12 miles and run three miles. The triathlon winner secured a coveted spot as a finalist, as well as a brand new Ford Fusion. Then it was an emotional trip down memory lane as the contestants watched footage of their journeys with their trainers, and saw firsthand how far they came since arriving on the ranch. Later, it was time for the last weigh-in before the finale, where two players fell below the red line and went home, and two more became finalists, joining the triathlon winner to compete for $250,000 and the title of “The Biggest Loser” at the season 15 finale.
On tonight’s episode in this must-see, exciting live finale, the 15 contestants from this season return for a special reunion and a chance to weigh in one last time – and show America how much weight they’ve all lost since beginning their weight-loss journeys. Those who have been eliminated will compete for the $100,000 “at home” prize. Then it’s the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season’s “Biggest Loser” and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000.
