The Biggest Loser Couples Season 7, Episode 2 Recap
Posted Jan 14 2009 4:42pm
Decisions, Decisions This week on The Biggest Loser the whole group was challenged by some mind games. Last week you remember that the contestants were split up where one team member stayed and the other went home. The group that went home didn’t have the luxury of just kicking back while the teammate that stayed had to workout. No, each one had to work hard at home because there was a chance that they get back after 30 days. You could see right away that some took this as a very important part of the experience and decided to get busy right away. Others when home and fell into the same trap even while the cameras were still rolling.
The group that stayed ran into a temptation the very next day. They were offered $25,000.00 to quit right now and just go home. One of the players, Joelle was almost ready to take the cash and get out of there, but thought better about it and stayed. She’s a member of Bob’s team and this week’s cameras stayed on her to show that she wasn’t a very motivated player. There are times that this show picks one of the contestants and follows them around to show their faults. Sometimes they do this to also throw the audience off, but other times they show the real loser that week.
The challenge this week is to paddle a kayak a quarter mile and then climb a mountain to reach their flag. The one to the top first gets immunity for the nights weigh-in. The black team got this last week and both members were able to stay. The green team member Tara won this week and both members at the ranch and home are safe this week. There was a nice moment where they went back to help the young guy Dan who is over 400 lbs finish the climb.
Weigh-in You can see from the chart below that both Jerry and Dan fell below the yellow line and this was really difficult decision for the group since they both really need to be there. Each one was well-liked so they made a choice to send home the older guy since they felt that the young guy needed to stay. So Jerry was sent home this week. He lost 26 pounds when he was on the show and he looks much better and has lost 84 pounds so far.
Below the Yellow Line
From the actions of these past two weeks this looks to be a really different season this year. If you’ve seen the shows, who are you pulling for and why?
