Nothing But Red!

January 27th, 2010 | 1 Comment | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

To start off the week, the teams had to participate in a Pop Challenge. They had to run to get cards that when put into a machine, would display a checkmark or xmark. The team that got 3 winning cards into the machine first won immunity and the ability to make 3 very important decisions.

Red team won again and could potentially make some serious enemies in the house with their decisions. Here they were:

1. No Access to the Gym – Red team gave this card to John because he works out in the pool already so it wouldn’t significantly affect his workouts.

2. No Elimination Vote – they gave this card to Michael because several people confronted him at the last weigh-in about his laziness, and they didn’t want him to seek revenge through his voting.

3. 2 lb Disadvantage – Red team gave it to the green team because they pulled lower numbers last week.

Bob and Jillian Talk to Red Team

Because in the last two weigh-ins, Melissa hasn’t lost any weight, and she just happened to be immune both weigh ins. Lance and Melissa were so mad that Jillian and Bob yelled at her and called her a liar on national television. Bob backed down, and Jillian held her ground. And, in the end Melissa asked Lance to let it go and move on to work with both trainers.

Pull Your Own Weight Challenge

The winner of this challenge will get a phone call home and the chance to assign three other phone calls to three other teams.

Grey team won with red team 1 second behind them. They chose to give the other calls to Red team, Green team, and John from Brown team. All great choices!

Student Teacher Week on the Biggest Loser

January 19th, 2010 | 8 Comments | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

The contestants were told that each duo was going to be split into the student and the teacher. The teacher has to train the student. The students would not be able to work out with the trainers this week.Only the student’s weight would count on the scale this week.

M&M Temptation

They have to eat more M & Ms than anyone else. The winner of the temptation gets to choose who will be the student and teacher for each team. Most of the teams didn’t want the responsibility of deciding. Pink team won by only eating two M & Ms.

Spool Challenge

The teachers have to twist and tie 1000 feet of ribbon through a child’s playground. The students will then draw to find out which color ribbon they will be untangling. The person with their ribbon wound back up first wins immunity and the chance to choose which team they want to switch student and teacher positions.

Once the teams twisted and turned their ribbon in as many confusing ways as possible, Alison told them that the students will have to unwrap their own color ribbon blindfolded! The teachers must communicate with the students to tell them how to go.

Grey team won! …Continue Reading Student Teacher Week on the Biggest Loser

Biggest Loser Week 2

Medical Tasks

Dr. H gave each team a medical task to impress upon them how much damage their obesity causes. The White team had to watch a normal sized man carry Michael’s weight. Bob had to take an extra 300+ lbs and needed help to stand, his hips were hurting, and he was in a lot of pain.

The red team had to see how much it costs them throughout their lifetime to be obese. As an armored truck pulled up, Dr. H explained to the couple that they are throwing away 3 million dollars in lost wages and extra expenses for their choice to be overweight. Seeing 3 million dollars in person in the back of a truck was impactful on them.

Balance Beam Challenge

Winners get immunity and the losing team gets a 2 lb penalty at the weigh in. Red team won immunity! And, Maria’s fear of the water sent her falling on her face. She got a bloody nose, and was taken to the hospital. She broke her finger too. But, because Michael went to the hospital with his Mom, he didn’t finish the challenge and took the 2 lb penalty.
