The Biggest Loser finished off makeover week tonight as the contestants met with Michelle Obama, who happens to be a huge fan of the show! Michelle Obama shared her story of her Let’s Move! initiative, which focuses on solving the problem of childhood obesity. And the first lady is definitely means business – she got right into a workout with the contestants, with no cares about making a fool of herself. Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince had way too much fun working out the first lady, but she proved to be one tough cookie.
Things then take an emotional turn on The Biggest Loser as Chris decided to go on an eating binge. Was it a ploy to get eliminated this week? Could be! After a disheartening conversation with Roy, who urged her to come home, Chris appeared to have given up. My heart broke for her as she sat alone crying in her room, and her tears carried on when Bob Harper jumped on her for her attitude change. Bob Harper was having no part of Chris’ drama or tears, and luckily he seemed to pull her back into reality – or did he?
Bob Harper was starting to show signs of worry that he only had two contestants left, while Dolvett had four. Meanwhile, Kim was nervous that if she fell below the yellow line, she was a surefire to get sent home. Once again, I was left hoping that it would be the wicked witch aka Conda, who would fail on the scale, but would we all be that lucky? Something tells me it won’t be happening this week as I have a sneaking suspicion that she is one of the contestants who stormed off the set back in February. After their last chance workout, this is how the finalists fared tonight on the scale:
from 210 lbs to 205 lbs (-5) * had one pound disadvantage
from 170 lbs to 172 (+2)
from 260 lbs to 249 (-11)
from 200 lbs to 196 lbs (-4)
from 164 lbs to 162 lbs (-2)
from 269 lbs to 260 lbs (-9)
As Kim was placed under the yellow line, Chris was the last one to weigh in, and it would have either been Conda or Chris below that line with Kim. As luck for us at home would have it, Chris gained two pounds, which left Conda safe for yet another week. Yes fans, it is okay to scream now with me. Chris felt that she overcame her issues though, after her heart to heart with Bob Harper.
When it was time to reveal the votes, it was no surprise that Chris was the one who was heading home, as the contestants thought Chris’ heart was not in it. Chris was not upset about it and is doing well at home now. Chris is down to 156 pounds and is looking forward to the finale in May! Next week, we will finally see the walk off and who was cut from the show after it all ended!
Do you think the correct contestant went home this week? I love hearing from all of our Biggest Loser fans! Comment and share your thoughts with us below!
