This episode of The Biggest Loser is a cautionary tale. Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it.
Kaylee kicks it off by apologizing for her weak attempt at throwing the weigh in and sending Justin home by mistake. Oops! "I learned a really good lesson," she says. Moses than proceeds to scold the group for game playing.
Call Alanis Morisette. I found some irony.
The next day, the Losers meet up at the gym to see Ali with a scale. There was a top secret team number twelve, mother and son combo Leann and Vance. They ALMOST made it onto campus, had to do the weight loss journey on their own, and now they are on the ranch to try to win ANOTHER spot. This time will be different! They have to lose more than 25.35% of their body weight to make it: Vance must lose over 95 pounds and Leann has to lose over 79 pounds.
Vance: From 379 lbs to 349 lbs- 30 lbs lost
Leann: From 315 lbs to 270 lbs- 45 lbs lost
They traveled all that way just to weigh in on national television and not be offered a place on the ranch. WEE WOO! How sad! How about just weigh them in at home? Or at least give them a work out with the trainers on campus! Some sort of consolation prize other than a white sleeveless tank top.
After team 12 is carted away, Ali announces a pop challenge: Don't drop the ball. They must balance balls on a board and bounce them into baskets. Boss. The winner gets a one minute advantage at the challenge and the loser gets sent off campus for a week. Kaylee and Austin win for the green team and Courtney and Jen lose for the red team.
Jen takes charge of their team, pretty much making all the decisions for Courtney when Ali presents them with a menu for their week away from campus. The girls must make all decisions from food to training in 15 minutes. What did the girls choose to spend their $1,000 on? A basic gym membership, groceries, talking to their family and friends, massages and dinner on the town. Not included: Training with Brett. Jen is super confident that they will succeed on their own because they have been doing it for 13 whole weeks now. Even a caveman could be a weight loss champ by then.
Brett, of course, disagrees. "I think that's a bad decision," he says, and tries to give the girls all the pointers he can before they are shipped off. "We'll make you proud! Don't worry!" they say, and head off to the beautiful California bungalow where they will be getting pampered all week.
Cut to the other teams sweating, straining, huffing, and puffing, while Jen and Courtney enjoy pedicures and swordfish salads. Any idea how this is all going to end up?
The rest of the show is sponsored by Hop, the Easter Bunny movie. There is an Easter Egg hunt, they get to meet James Marsden (fellow Oklahoman!), and they get to watch a screening of Hop AND the green team won tickets to the red carpet of Hop. So they get to see the movie two times! What a prize.
