The Yellow Line Has Moved!

September 28th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

Last week we saw the 12 contestants who earned their way onto the Biggest Loser ranch. But at the beginning of this week we saw two new contestants that were chosen by Bob and Jillian, from the 7 people who didn’t make it in the challenges – Aaron and Elizabeth.

Everyone got their first workout. It was brutal, as usual. People were passing out, throwing up, and screaming.

The contestants all met with Dr. H to learn about their test results. Some learned they had diabetes, heart disease, their body fat percentages, and they inner age.

Weigh In

They met Bob and Jillian in the kitchen and learned about healthy eating, whole foods, and what calories are.
This weigh in is taking place 2 weeks after the last weigh in in their home towns. And the yellow line moved up so that half of them will be below the yellow line.

That means 8 players will be in danger of elimination.

Because Rick was the Biggest Loser, he gets to save one person that is below the Yellow line. And, the rest of the people below the yellow line get to compete to save themselves.

The Elimination Challenge

At the elimination challenge Rick revealed his choice to save Patrick, since he was the only man below the yellow line.

The challenge was a foot race. The first person to grab the flag is safe from elimination. Then they run again until they have only two people left. Tina and Allie were the only two who did not get the flag. They are up for elimination and their fate will be decided upon by the 8 people above the yellow line.Its the oldest contestant up against the youngest.

Allie was voted out and left the campus immediately. Before she got home she asked her mom to take all the chocolate out of the house, but when she arrived home it was on the counter. She got no support from her mom, so she reached out to her Biggest Loser family. Danny from season 8 helped her out and got her going in the right direction. In total, Allie has lost 60 lbs.

The Biggest Loser is Back in Season 10

September 22nd, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

Season 10 of The Biggest Loser was kicked off in 6 cities around the country to choose the 12 contestants. These are not the biggest or the sickest contestants, but rather, the contestants who want it the most.

Prior Biggest Loser contestants joined Jillian and Bob in these cities from Los Angeles to Boston. They had 3 people pre-selected from each city and had all three weigh in and compete to go to the ranch. The top 2 finishers would be guaranteed a spot on the ranch, while the third would have to face their weight loss struggle at home.

There were two types of challenges – 500 steps or 1 mile race. Here are the contestants in LA:

And, in Boston:

This season’s theme is “Pay it Forward”, so we’ll probably see more and more of the previous contestants helping the newcomers.

Here’s Bob in Portland:

Here are your new Biggest Loser Season 10 contestants:

The Biggest Loser Finale is finally here! They started off the show by bringing Koli and Daris out on stage to see who America voted for. They both looked amazing at their goal weight. Daris has a new girlfriend, Heather, and he looks very happy.

America Votes!

America voted for Daris! That was a huge surprise since Daris had gained weight in the last week and had trouble with stress eating.

Shay Weighs In

Shay will get $1,000 for every pound she loses from last season’s weigh in and tonight.

She started at 304 lbs. She now weighs 252 for a total loss of 52 lbs. Jared from Subway presented Shay with the check for $52,000. They gave her another challenge. If she completes a marathon with Jared, Subway will double the check.

30 Days at Home

May 19th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Biggest Loser Show

The 4 remaining Biggest Loser contestants return home for 30 days before they have to go back to the ranch to weigh in to determine the final 3.

Everyone weighed in when they got home and in 4 months…

Daris lost 151 lbs
Mike lost 204 lbs!
Ashley lost 143 lbs
Koli lost 172 lbs

Last Challenge – The Biggest Loser Marathon

The Biggest Loser contestants will compete in the Biggest Loser Marathon. Everyone who finished will get to give $10,000 to the charity of their choice. Ashley and Mike decided to team up and run the marathon together.

Facing Challenges at Home

Daris is struggling with stress eating, and fell off the wagon one night. Daris over trained for the marathon and hurt his knee.

Koli got distracted from all the family and friends at home, so he decided to go train in Las Vegas, NV with a kickboxer.

Ashley went out with friends and stayed out too late.

Running the Marathon

The record for the best time in the Biggest Loser Marathon is 4 hours 55 minutes set by Tara.

At mile 13 Daris was met by Matt Hoover, the winner from season 2. Koli was met by Sione (who looked bigger than before) at the halfway mark. At mile 11, Ali Vincent (still as trim as the day she won) met Ashley, and then Mike from last season (who looked like a million) met Michael.

Daris finished the marathon in 4 hours 2 minutes!!
Koli finished in 6 hours 8 minutes
Ashley and Mike finished together at 6 hours 26 minutes
