The Biggest Loser 2012 Season 13 Episode 17 Recap 4/24/12

Tonight on an all new episode of The Biggest Loser will air on NBC.  On last week’s show a surprising turn of events shook up the competition when the remaining contestants got upset and threatened to leave the ranch.  At the end two house guests decided to walk out.

Mark and Buddy decided to leave.  Mark told everyone –  for anyone who though he left and was giving up he wasn’t.  He is only 11 pounds away from his goal weight. It is his decision, he had to leave. Buddy tells everyone he is following his heart and he was doing what he thought was right-he just didn’t like one of the game’s rules. Buddy did not feel like a quitter!

After the two contestants left the show last week The Biggest Loser decided to give to the contestant who had the most weight loss a car.  Nice prize!  At the end of last week’s show Jeremy was eliminated and Conda and Kim are the finalists.  If you missed the episode you can read our full and detailed recap here.

On this weeks episode, the stakes are higher than ever when all the eliminated contestants return to the ranch to compete in a fateful, four-part challenge. The challenge winner will secure a coveted spot as a finalist, and the chance to compete for the $250,000 grand prize, along with the other two finalists revealed in last week’s episode, Conda and Kim.  This competition and the opportunity is the reason the contestants went home last week.  They did not feel it was fair for the producers to let anyone come back.

It’s a fight to the finish with each player fiercely determined to get back in the game in a competition that will put their speed, knowledge and endurance to the ultimate test. In the end, the third finalist of season 13 will be revealed!
