The Biggest Loser contestants were coming off a high from last week, where they all worked together as a team to meet and exceed their goals of losing 150  lbs. Because they accomplished their goal – no one had to go home!

But this week is all about making choices…

Trading Your Trainers for 2 Lbs

The first choice put to the contestants was they could get a 2 lb advantage at the weigh in if they were willing to give up training with their trainers for the week. If a team didn’t take the 2 lbs, the stakes would go up until someone took it.

And, crazy Tracy took the deal for only 2 lbs without even talking to Coach Mo. She compromised his well being too. That was a selfish choice!

Food Temptation: Cupcakes for Power

The food temptation this week involved the contestants in a cubicle with 100 calorie cupcakes. The temptation was not the cupcakes, but rather the power to decide who of each team will weigh-in and represent the percentage for the team. The person who ate the most cupcakes won the power.

Only two contestants ate the cupcakes – Tracy and Antoine. Antoine ate 2 cupcakes and Tracy ate 4 cupcakes and won the power.

And, when Jillian heard about it later, she was MAD! …Continue Reading Amazing Self Sacrifice on the Biggest Loser

Biggest Loser Season 8 – It’s back, and better than ever! 16 brand new contestants including last season’s Dan, who showed up in a black limo on the beach as the contestants prepared to compete in their first challenge.

Before they met the trainers or even got to the ranch, the Biggest Loser contestants were dropped off on the Pacific Coast Highway where last season’s contestants ran a marathon.wk1-challenge

Immunity Challenge

The first immunity challenge was the last mile of last year’s marathon route. Dan finished first with a time of 14:17. Tracy collapsed about 100 yards from the finish line and had to be taken to the hospital along with Coach Mo who are being held a little longer for observation.

Besides winning immunity, Dan will be able to choose his partner first in the game, and him and his partner have immunity at the next weigh-in. While in previous seasons of the Biggest Loser, the contestants came with their partners, this year they are all strangers and they will choose their teammates.
