A new episode of The Biggest Loser airs tonight on NBC. We are now at 11th episode of the 13th season and the contestants will no longer be competing in teams it will be an individual competition as of tonight. On last week’s episode they switched the trainers around and the contestants were really upset. Several of them spent most of the episode complaining. At the weight-in Cassandra only lost 3 lbs. and she was sent home. She was distraught at being home and told the other contestants she was afraid to continue her journey at home and was afraid to become that girl again and gain it all back. If you missed the last episode you can read our full recap here!
On tonight’s episode the game goes to singles for the nine remaining contestants, so everyone returns to their original team colors. Their first challenge as individuals is a tug-of-war competition on the ice with a Yankee Swap prize system that will give one lucky contestant a shopping spree with singer, actress and fashion designer Jessica Simpson!
One trainer helps a contestant tackle her fear of heights, and then the tables are turned when one contestant tries coaching their trainer. Later, a tough elimination sends another player packing. Alison Sweeney hosts the series, and trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince also star.
The Biggest Loser airs at 8PM on NBC and we will be live blogging it with all the up-to-the-minute details, weigh-ins and elimination. 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!
