Biggest Loser Couples Switch Trainers and Teams

February 25th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

This was an emotional part one of a two part series. Teams got changed up a bit, trainers were shocked and even crying, and the longest Biggest Loser challenge yet this season!

Pop Challenge Changes the Teams

The stakes are high for this challenge – potentially new trainers and teams! The contestants have to do 100 football up-downs, which means they have to lay on their bell (in the mud!) and then stand up and tap a medallion above their head, then back down. Only one person from every duo competed. The first player to get all 100 up-downs completed won and couple choose their trainer and they got to stay together. The last to finish would automatically be split up, or if a single would go to the other trainer and team.

Mud Challenge

Tara finished first, Sione second, Mandi third, Mike fourth, Kristin, and then Helen last.

They must hike up a mountain, where at the top is 130 keys, grab one and come back down to see if it fits in one of the locks. Once you get one that fits, then you and your teammate gets to use the gym and everyone else must use the great outdoors. Heavy stakes!

Shannon got the first lock open giving her and her mom of the pink team the ability to use the gym this week. Then Mike from the brown team opened the second lock, so both teams are able to use the gym.

Mud Wrestling

The teams were learning how to workout outside without the gym, and Bob introduced the TRX system – a piece of portable equipment that a Navy Seal developed to use anywhere. Bob hooked it up to a tree and they got a great workout outside. …Continue Reading Biggest Loser Week 7: Keys to the Gym

Hi Everyone! I’ve been sick the last few weeks so I’m glad to be back. I’m posting this a bit late, but better late than never. Week 6 was full of sacrifices by Blaine for other people. He really seems like a great guy!

Everyone had to stand on a block only wide enough to fit one foot. The last person standing on the block won 24 hours with a loved one at the Biggest Loser ranch. It got down to Blaine, and both yellow team members, Aubrey and Mandi. Mandi was desperate to see her husband, so Blaine agreed to step down.
