The Biggest Loser in tonight’s show was the creator of the “Temptation Round.”
The “Temptation Round,” in which players are always made to eat junk food, was truly revolting this week. Each player had to “buy” something from a rigged vending machine. If junk food came out, they had to eat it. They could walk away or keep trying to obtain the sugar free gum which would give them cash and enable them to eat a piece of gum instead of whatever empty-calorie food dropped next. They could keep trying until they won a one-pound pass that would take one pound off their total weight loss for the week.
Roger pulled gum right away, then junk food, then the one pound pass. Dan ate 1,100 calories in junk food before winning $9,500. Jay won a one-pound pass right away. Kelly ate a Twinkie and three candy bars before giving up. Watching these people who have worked so diligently almost vomit from the rapid consumption of junk food was disgusting. I truly wish that bingeing was not incorporated into this show.
From having won the “biggest loser” title last week, Bernie was able to grant any player besides himself immunity. He gave immunity to Brittany.
The contestants also took a field trip to the hospital where they were given wonderful results from their physicals. In their first week at the ranch, they had initially been told that they were morbidly obese and the doctor had taken them to visit the morgue to scare them.
Kelly learned that after 3 miscarriages and 2 ectopic pregnancies, her chances of conception and full term pregnancy were now drastically increased. Roger learned that his sleep apnea was much improved. Roger was also given some pointers regarding healthy food options to bring to a tailgate party and said, “I might write a damn book about it.” I hope he does.
Before the weigh in, the contestants were told that the "teams" were now dissolved. The "yellow line" was brought back and the two people who lost the least amount would be up for elimination. Bernie and Kelly fell below the yellow line.
In the end, Bernie, as the bigger threat was voted off the show. This was a good competitive decision but it is upsetting since he was the most unique, happy, person in the competition. Everything he said made me laugh and he made the show worth watching.
The players that remain are Kelly, Maggie, Brittany, Dan, Jay and Roger and they are now competing as individuals for the $250,000 prize.Powered by Sidelines
