Tonight on a brand new episode of The Biggest Loser on NBC, the contestants get financially fit as they are paid a visit by Suze Orman as well as an inspirational surprise guest! And speaking of surprises, Ali Sweeney has a few big ones for the losers this week. But wait until you see the surprise that the contestants have in store for Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper…you don’t want to miss this, so keep reading for all the fitness filled details!
This week’s The Biggest Loser on NBC starts off with a surprise pop challenge by Ali Sweeny. In the pop challenge, the contestants must balance quarters on a weight and hold it up with one hand for as long as possible. They may keep adding quarters, as Ali tells them that for every quarter the winner has left, they will get $10….that could add up to alot of money! However, if even a single quarter falls off the weight, that person is done for the challenge.
The challenge starts off with everyone neck in neck, but Daris, who has an issue with his hand being unsteady decides to bow out gracefully and lets his quarters hit the floor. One by one they start to drop, until it there are only 2 left: Sunshine and Michael. Sunshine drops a quarter as she is trying to push them to the center, leaving Michael as the last person standing and the winner of the challenge. But in yet another surprise, Ali Sweeney informs both of them that the amount of quarters on their weights will be double the $10 she originally promised, giving Sunshine a total of $600 and Michael a total of $2000.
Up next on the The Biggest Loser on NBC, the contestants get a visit from Suze Orman, financial expert. Suze makes her prediction for the season 9 winner to be Sunshine. Hey, she was correct with Danny Cahill, so we shall see if she is this time around. And speaking of Danny Cahill, he also pays the losers a surprise visit tonight, sharing his healthy eating tips such as the importance of calorie counting, and even spends time in the gym working out with them…..imagine Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper‘s surprise to see him!
Now it was time for their fitness challenge on The Biggest Loser on NBC and once again Ali Sweeney has not one, but two huge surprises in store. This week there is no prize of immunity, but the prizes are two brand new cars! The fitness challenge is that the contestants have to climb a hill, in the pouring rain and pick keys off of balloons one by one and try to use those keys to start the cars. It is a grueling fitness challenge for these guys, but Andrea managed to find the first key, so it was well worth it to her. With about 40 keys left, ONeal hits the jackpot with the second key, although he immediately screams to Sunshine to come get her new car, what a sweetheart he is!
Back to business on The Biggest Loser on NBC, or at least that is what Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper think until the contestants drag the two of them out into the mud, what a hilarious sight….Jillian Michaels was pissed and vowed to get revenge. After a brief heart to heart with Vicky over her weight loss struggle, Jillian Michaels proved that revenge is sweet in their last chance workout as she stepped on them and used her weight in any way possible!
Now let’s see how our contestants fared in this week filled with surprises:
ONeal from 283 to 278 (-5)
Michael from 372 to 363 (-9)
Daris from 233 to 226 (-7)
Koli from 276 to 270 (-6)
Sunshine from 195 to 192 (-3)
Vicky from 272 to 267 (-5)
Andrea from 225 to 222 (-3)
Sam from 252 to 252 (-0)
Ashley from 264 to 258 (-6)
It was an emotional ride for both ONeal and Sunshine as they were below the line for most of the weigh in, until Andrea and Sam bumped them above the line. Now the remaining house members had to choose which one of their beloved friends would be going home this week. I thought for sure it would be Sam despite the fact that I personally did not want to see him go, I believe he needed less help than Andrea at this point.
The house however, chose to keep Sam, even though he had no weight loss this week, Andrea lost the vote four to one. We will definitely miss Andrea, who has updated us that she is doing well at home, teaching spin classes and hoping to be a fitness instructor one day. We can’t wait to see you at the finale Andrea!
