The Biggest Loser Recap: Bring On The Valentine’s Day Battle

February 14, 2012 08:28 PM by Lisa Princ

Last week on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser, the wicked witch, aka Conda Britt got her wish as Adrian Dortch was eliminated after a drama filled week. This week, it’s time for revenge, as the ultimate Valentine’s Day battle was on between Conda and Adrian’s sister, Daphne. With only one of them walking away as a winner, did karma come and bite Conda in the behind? Read on for all the highlights of tonight’s episode!

The Biggest Loser kicked off Valentine’s Day as the red team joined the black team in the house, and Daphne was pissed that her brother was eliminated, and immediately jumped down Conda’s throat – bravo Daphne! I mean, I love Dolvett Quince, and have even spoken with him (he really is a sweet man), but I hate his team right now as I am sure most viewers do. You could tell that this was going to be a tense week at the ranch. Luckily, for two contestants, they would not have to deal with the ranch this week. That’s right, Alison Sweeney announced that two contestants would be going home this week, just for the week, and their weigh in would be the only one that would count for their team at the weigh in.

But that was not the only surprise that Ali had in store – they would also be taking their trainers home with them, and the trainers got to choose which contestant would be going home. Dolvett Quince was up first, and he chose to give the trip home to Conda. Bob Harper, in his competitive spirit, jumped all over that and chose to send Daphne home, knowing how much Daphne wanted to prove herself. Daphne was thrilled to be able to have the chance to go head to head with the wicked witch who sent her brother home, while Conda was her usual cocky self. The entire time, Chris moaned and groaned that she should have gone home as she told Bob last week that she needed more help from him – ugh, do we have another Gail on our hands?

It was interesting to learn more about both Daphne and Conda on their trips home. As it turns out, Conda’s issues stem from her dysfunctional family life, although that does not make it right for her treat people the way she does. Daphne, on the other hand, suffers from heart issues and actually uses a CPAP machine at night, just so she will not stop breathing. Daphne cried at dinner with Bob and her children, feeling like her health was a burden to them, which is all the more reason she wants to lose weight. In a comical twist, we got to watch Dolvett babysit Conda’s daughter while Conda enjoyed a night out with her friends. Poor Dolvett took a beating from the toddler, but he said it was nothing compared to dealing with Conda – and we believe him just from watching her!

Meanwhile, at the ranch on The Biggest Loser, the contestants who stayed behind were competing in a challenge for letters from home and a one pound advantage for their home players. Alison then announced that the team with the highest percentage of weight loss at the weigh in would also get a one pound advantage for their player, meaning that one player could end up with two pounds. For the challenge, the teams had to dig into the sand, and get themselves under a log once they had dug a deep enough opening. Not only did they have to get themselves under, but also a 200 pound dummy, in place of their missing team member. The red team got an early lead on the black team, and the black team could not catch up at all. The red team took the win, the letters from home, and the one pound advantage!

Here is how the teams fared at the weigh in:

Bob Harper’s Black Team

Chism
from 305 lbs to 298 lbs (-7)

Megan
from 223 lbs to 219 lbs (-4)

Chris
from 206 lbs to 201 (-5)

Jeremy
from 326 lbs to 320 (-6)

Emily
from 223 lbs to 218 lbs (-5)

Cassandra
from 195 lbs to 189 lbs (-6)

Daphne
from 236 lbs to 224 lbs (-12)

Dolvett Quince’s Red Team

Roy aka Santa
from 261 lbs to 252 lbs (-9)

Conda
from 255 lbs to 245 lbs (-10)

Kimmy
from 188 lbs to 184 lbs (-4)

Mark
from 244 lbs to 234 lbs (-10)

Kim
from 209 lbs to 200 lbs (-9)

Buddy
from 336 lbs to 329 (-7)

The red team blew the black team out of the water at the weigh in, which gave the red team another pound for Conda. But, with a two pound advantage, Conda still did not beat Daphne’s weight loss percentage. Daphne kicked butt this week, and definitely proved herself. That also meant that the red team was up for elimination again, but would the wicked witch be sent packing? Of course not!

I am sure it is no surprise to reveal that despite losing a good amount this week, the red team voted Roy off the ranch. Poor Roy. They tried to use the excuse that he was not a team player because he chose to do his own workouts this week – not because he didn’t want to be a ┬áteam player, but because he is older and they are much younger than him. Gee, maybe now that there are no nice players left on the red team, next week will be Conda’s week?

Roy is doing great at home and is now down to 230 pounds. Roy vowed that we will see a skinny Santa at the finale! Check back tomorrow for our elimination interview with Roy aka Santa – we will miss seeing him every week!

    This is the worst season of Biggest Loser and I have watched from the very beginning – what has happened – you have Bob playing games – stirring up shit – sending Daphine home after she had only been on the ranch a few short weeks instead of someone who has been there for so long and would have loved to see their family – just playing into the TV hoopla – this was a great, inspiring show but like all good things – they are starting to make a mess out of this good show for TV ratings of bickering, fighting and bullshit – Bob come on!

    The show was inspirational and motivational but with Conda and her team mate being so nasty,petty and immature, I can’t watch the show any longer. I want postive encouraging support, not childish reality backstabbing crap. Conda can join the Kardashians as poor role models.

    Shirley,
    I honestly feel that Bob knew that Daphne wanted to prove herself to Conda and her team, even if it was a little game playing tactic from him. However, the same can be said for Dolvett – there were quite a few members of the red team who deserved a trip home more than that evil witch did.

    Janine,
    I nearly spit out my coffee laughing at your comment! Totally agree though, Conda can join the ranks of the Kardashians in terms of role models :)

    I love watching this show but on mute. Its great to see how their hard work pays off at the end of the show. Thats the best part, the end of the show, I usually watch something else and turn back to the show when its almost time for it to finish. I dont like how they are going in the way of the other reality tv shows by showing all kinds of back-stabbing, childish (Conda), annoying (Conda), immature (Conda) attitudes.
