Tonight on NBC The Biggest Loser which features over weight contestants competing to lose weight to win money returns with an all new Thursday November 6, season 16 episode 9 called “Yes Coach.” On tonight’s episode NFL stars Michael Irvin, Donald Driver and Willie McGinest visit the ranch, where they participate in a football challenge and offer the contestants training advice. The contestants are of course thrilled to get to talk to the NFL stars.
On the last episode it’s eight weeks in to the competition, and the remaining contestants had already lost almost 700 lbs. But this week it proved harder to stay on course when a challenge involving giant treadmills over water gave the winning team the opportunity to assign penalties to the two losing teams. One team was tasked with cleaning duties that had to be finished before they could access their trainer and the gym, while the other team was sent without their trainer to a city full of temptations – Las Vegas. Meanwhile, at Comeback Canyon, trainer Bob Harper tried to convince his two contestants to make their health a priority rather than always taking care of others first. Then the player who fell below the red line at the ranch weigh-in and felt unprepared to return home was thrilled to get a second chance at Comeback Canyon, while the weigh-in there sends another contestant home for good. Did you watch the last episode? If you missed it, we have a full and detailed recap right here for you.
On tonight’s episode as per NBC’s synopsis, “it’s the halfway point in the competition and contestants get the exciting news that three NFL legends – Super Bowl champs Michael Irvin, Donald Driver and Willie McGinest – will be joining them this week. First, they’ll be part of a football challenge in which a trainer and contestant from each team must catch footballs from the NFL legends – while tied together. And the stakes are high, because the winning team gets the coveted prize of video chats with loved ones. Later, the NFL players join the trainers in the gym and have fun putting their own spin on coaching the contestants. Then a red line at the weigh-in puts all the players on edge, while the Comeback Canyon weigh-in sends another contestant home for good.”
