Tonight, it’s all about choices on The Biggest Loser on NBC as the contestants are put to their toughest temptation challenge to date. One contestant is struck with personal tragedy and another contestant makes a daring choice…but will it backfire in his face? Keep reading for all the healthy details!
Ali Sweeney greets the contestants tonight on The Biggest Loser on NBC with a very tough temptation challenge. For the entire day, the contestants will not be eating their meals in the kitchen, instead they will be be making choices from a room full of food, some healthy and some not so healthy. Of course, like any challenge you didn’t think this would take place without a catch, now did you? The catch is that the person who consumed the most calories for the day would have the only vote at elimination this week. However, if that person happened to fall below the yellow line, that would be null and void leaving elimination to carry on as normal.
So who would be eating until their heart’s content tonight on The Biggest Loser on NBC? Certainly not whom I expected to play the game! I have to say I was extremely proud of Michael for not falling for this temptation….although I think he may have tricked a few contestants into thinking he did. Koli however decided to play the game this week. He ate and ate and ate until he almost made himself sick and ending up with over 4,000 calories for the day. His motivation? If he had the only vote and Sam fell below the yellow line, he could save his cousin. He wound up winning the challenge and ended up with the only vote in elimination…that is if he did not fall below the yellow line himself.
Koli made sure he got extra workouts in to help him rid himself of all the calories he had consumed. Next it was time for their fitness challenge on The Biggest Loser on NBC, which consisted of stacking up blocks which would take the contestants to a ladder that they would need to climb in order to grab a flag at the top. The winner of this challenge would get a one pound advantage at the weigh in, while the last place contestant would get a one pound disadvantage. Daris had a first tonight by winning this challenge which is something he had never done on the show. ONeal ended up falling off and landing on his knee, resulting in a medic trip and the one pound disadvantage at the weigh in.
Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper were not the least bit happy with Koli’s poor choices this week and they worked his buns into the ground as punishment. Jillian Michaels made it perfectly clear that saving someone who no longer needed to be there was ridiculous. Of course, once Sam and Koli got wind of ONeal’s extra pound, they both shifted into overdrive to save ONeal instead. ONeal had alot of choices to make this week as well, as he was injured and then learned that his older brother had passed away. Would ONeal be able to focus and keep going or give up? With Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper‘s determination, ONeal kept going and worked harder than ever in honor of his brother.
Now it was weigh in time so let’s see how our contestants fared this week after their mostly smart choices:
ONeal from 278 to 270 (-8)
Michael from 363 to 358 (-5)
Daris from 226 to 219 (-7) *also had one pound advantage
Koli from 270 to 260 (-10)
Sunshine from 192 to 191 (-1)
Vicky from 267 to 266 (-1)
Sam from 252 to 246 (-6)
Ashley from 258 to 254 (-4)
This meant that both Sunshine and Vicky would be up for elimination this week and since he was above the yellow line, it was up to Koli alone to make that choice. An hour later, the three returned to the elimination room and Koli decided that it was time for Vicky to head home since she was not working as hard as she should be he thought. So for all the Sunshine and ONeal fans, this story ended on a happy note this week as they will both remain on the ranch.
