The Biggest Loser Week 3 Recap 9/29/09

Posted by | 0 Comments »


Tonight’s episode of The Biggest Loser was all about choices and temptation.  Host Alison Sweeney offered the contestants the chance to gain a 2 pound advantage at the weigh-in,  but in return they must give up their trainers, Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels for the week.  It seems like a no-brainer, giving up two personal trainers for a full week is crazy, but Tracey decided to jump at the advantage and gave up her trainers.  Unfortunately, her teammate Mo, who wasn’t consulted by Tracey about the choice, was also made to pay the price for the 2 pound advantage.

Later, the players were faced with their first temptation,  control your diet or control the game.  The winner of the temptation has control over the weigh-in.  At this week’s weigh-in, only one person from each teams weigh-in loss, would count towards falling above or below the yellow line.  Tracey was the winner of the temptation challenge by eating the most cupcakes (she ate 4), gaining control of the weigh-in and choosing whose weight loss counted.  In the process she alienated the other contestants, including her teammate Mo and  she completely pissed off Bob and Jillian.

The choices lead to a heartbreaking elimination.  The orange team and the red team fell below the yellow line.  Antione and Sean exhibited such great character by encouraging the contestants to vote them off, so Shay and Danny would have more time to stay at the ranch.

Antione and Sean were eliminated but have stayed with the program at home and both have lost a lot of weight.

The contestants are listed below with their starting weight and their weight loss for each week.
