On this upcoming Sunday, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner will play in Super Bowl XLIII. But first, he will be guest starring on a special Super Bowl-themed episode of The Biggest Loser.
Celebrity chef Curtis Stone will also be appearing on the episode. Stone will test the contestants to see how much they about the calories contained in popular Super Bowl snacks like chicken wings. For the winners of the contest, Stone will teach them how to make healthier versions of the snacks. One contestant will even win a chance to have Stone give a healthy meals lesson to their teammate at home.
For this week’s challenge, the contestants will take part in a football competition with NFL quarterback Kurt Warner. Warner will give the contestants a pep talk, before putting them through an NFL-style competition. The winner of the competition will receive immunity from elimination. In addition to playing in the NFL, Kurt Warner along with his wife, Brenda, established the First Things First Foundation, which helps those less fortunate.
Immunity carries special weight this week, as all the at home teammates are returning for the weigh-in. The contestant with immunity guarantees their partner a spot back in the game.
Also, one of the contestants leaves the ranch because of a very important arrival at home. At the weigh-in, two teams fall below the yellow line. The Biggest Loser: Couples airs on Tuesday, January 27 from 8 PM to 10 PM ET on NBC.
