Pete Thomas’ Biggest Loser Video Recap of Week 3

Joelle Causing Drama
Tonight the drama got turned up from the previous two Biggest Loser shows. Joelle from the gray team is really getting on the other contestants last nerves. She has been at the bottom of the weigh-in each week and is demonstrating that she is a weak player.

The Temptation
The one thing that got most of the rest of the players was the temptation this week, where each person was offered pizza, fried chicken nuggets, tacos and cupcakes to consume. The players at home were given the same challenge and the team that devoured the most calories was offered a trip back home to workout with their partner trained by Bob Harper. Well, Mandi ate a piece of pizza to try to get home and see her kids. All the other teams at the ranch ate nothing. The game switches to the player at home and Sione of the blue team pounded down two pieces of pizza and a cupcake to take the lead. Now Joelle’s partner Carla ate over 2000 calories of junk food and they won the challenge. Bob went to Detroit and trained both of the gray team. While there Carla gave a ton of attitude and challenged Joelle that she just wasn’t doing her part. From my point, she doesn’t seem motivated enough for the show.

The Challenge
The challenge for this week was the ability to jump over a rotating movable bar without breaking it. The winner received immunity for the night’s weigh-in. Two girls Tara and Kristin went 2 hours and 19 minutes jumping the bar where Tara ended up winning. That was an incredible feat of strength and endurance.

The Vote-Off
The vote to send the player home was a bazaar one last night. Joelle is not a motivated player and based upon personality, you would think that they made an easy decision to send her home. However, that’s not what happened and those that train with Jillian voted to send Damian home which made it a tie and because he lost the least amount of weight by percentage last night, he went home. Now, I do think that the people forget that this is a game and by keeping the weaker player, the person who stays gets an easy road to the final prize of $250,000. Tonight they may have gotten it right, but who knows how this plays out next week. I won’t forget that they did this on fear and intimidation last season to keep Vicky hanging around until the final.
