Biggest Loser Recap 1/7/13 ‘Get Moving’
The stakes are high, with another red line looming for whoever loses the least amount of weight, and the dreaded “week 2 curse” that has instilled fear in all the contestants. Dr. H visits the ranch, giving the adult players an eye-opening wake-up call about just how unhealthy they really are, and Jillian has a heart-to-heart talk with their team to try to get them on track, after losing two teammates during the last episode.
Later, NFL star and San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates cheers on the adult contestants and kids at a football-themed challenge testing the speed, agility and strength of the adults as they compete for a special prize ($5,000 for their school and a visit from an NFL player) for the child on their team. Sunny’s White Team Wins the competition!!
Plus, the trainers do a special fitness test with the kids and season 10 winner Patrick House makes a special appearance before the dreaded red line at an emotional weigh-in sends another player home.
Biingo arrived at the fitness test on crutches, he fractured his foot while playing basketball.
After a crueling last chance workout the contestants hit the scale.
Alison tells the contestants that once again, there will be no yellow line, only a red line. The person below the red line on the losing team will be going home.
Blue Team = 36 pounds 2.35%
David 287 to 278 -9
Gina 230 to 223 -7
Alex 231 to 225 -6
Michael 423 to 409 -14
Jeff 359 to 359 -0
Red Team = 32 pounds 2.38%
Cate 225 to 220 -5
Francelina 248 to 242 -6
Jackson 306 to 302 -4
Joe 338 to 326 -12
Lisa 230 to 225 -5
White Team = 18 pounds
Pam 227 to 219 -8
Danni 239 to 234 -5
Nathan 339 to 334 -5
Again, the White Team fell below the red line and had to send home a teammate.
Nathan has fallen below the red line and is eliminated from the competition.
When Nathan arrived at the ranch, he weighed 359 pounds, he now weighs 299 and looks so good. We see him and his girlfriend working out at the gym together. We also watch Nathan shop for the engagement ring and propose to Mattie!! She said Yes!! Nate has lost 60 pounds so far and hopes to be at 240 pounds at his wedding.
Jillian’s White Team is now down to 2 people.
Next week, “Cutting the junk” is this week’s theme, and the players begin with a trivia challenge testing their knowledge about childhood obesity. The losing team will have to spend 4 ½ hours each day – the amount of time the average kid spends watching TV – in a room surrounded by junk food, soda and video games. Meanwhile, Dr. Joanna Dolgoff, “The Biggest Loser” childhood obesity expert and pediatrician, travels to the homes of kid participants Sunny, Lindsay and Biingo, to help the kids and their families cut the junk food and get on track with healthy eating. Then it’s one of the show’s craziest challenges ever when contestants have to race through a gooey bubble gum pit carrying 10 pound balls to win an amazing prize that everyone wants. Later, after a tense weigh-in, the players enter the show’s new voting booth to decide which contestant will be going home.
See you then!!
