Last week on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser, we said goodbye to Sunny Sinclair as makeover week seemed to affect her weigh in. This week, all the eliminated contestants return for the marathon, where one of them will secure a spot in the finale, but we will also watch as Vinny Hickerson gets engaged! Talk about an exciting week! Read on for highlights of tonight’s episode and Vinny’s engagement.
The Biggest Loser is back tonight for the much anticipated marathon, where the eliminated players will return for their final shot at the finale. According to NBC, tonight we will see:
“For the first time in the show’s history, the contestant who wins the race automatically becomes a finalist, eligible to compete for the $250,000 grand prize. But there’s extra incentive because the first five players who finish the race will also get to split $50,000. The only way to guarantee a spot in the finals is to either win the marathon – or be one of the contestants who stay above the red line at the weigh-in. In the end, the three finalists of season 12 will be revealed.”
Meanwhile, the news broke this morning that one of the final four, Vinny Hickerson has gotten engaged, and it will air on the show tonight! Vinny proposed to his longtime girlfriend during a date at the Grand Ole Opry, and Vinny told People Magazine of the proposal: “I wanted to take her there because it’s a place where so many dreams have come true, right there on that stage.” Vinny Hickerson, who has lost over 100 pounds so far, went on to tell the magazine that his biggest dream is to be a great husband and father. Apparently, we will see the details of the engagement on the show tonight – are you as excited as we are?
Be sure to tune in to The Biggest Loser at a special time tonight, 9-11 pm EST for this exciting new episode!
