Last week on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser, we watched as Mark Cornelison and Buddy Shuh left the show, and Jeremy Britt was eliminated. Tonight, all of the eliminated players come back for one final shot at the finale, but who took it? Read on for all the highlights.
The Biggest Loser was back tonight after Jeremy’s elimination last week, and in an ironic twist, Jeremy would now be participating in the very challenge that he was protesting last week. It began with the usual Conda moan and groan fest, because of course she felt that Jeremy should be there and no one else. If she wins, I think The Biggest Loser is going to lose a lot of viewers. When the remaining contestants returned, I was wowed by some of them, including Mike, who went home in week three – you could immediately tell that he was in it to win it.
So how would the final spot be won? Well, it turned out to be a multiple part challenge. For the first part, it was a good ole weigh-in, with the top eight percentages moving on. The eight who moved on were: Jeremy (ugh), Emily, Cassandra (another ugh), Chris, Megan, Kimmy, Lauren (who also looked fabulous), and no surprise – Mike, who lost a whopping 114 pounds at home! Adrian came close, as did Ben, who lost 99 pounds almost all at home (he went home the very first week).
Quickly, it turned back to the Jeremy whine episode, as Jeremy gave the “whoa is me” story to Conda, the only person who gives a rat’s butt about it. Dolvett also noticed Jeremy’s attitude and decided to have a chat with him. Sorry Jeremy, but none of us at home feel sorry for you – maybe if you spent less time on Conda all season long, and more on yourself, you would not be fighting for a spot right now.
The second part of the challenge was a 100 yard dash, which Chris could not compete in as she was not cleared by her doctor, so she was sent home – too bad, she was one worth rooting for. Kimmy and Emily could not keep up during the run and were eliminated next. The remaining five then had to tackle a calorie puzzle for the three remaining spots in the last challenge. Mark amazed me as he nailed it and won the first spot right away. Jeremy struggled, but he managed to get it together and earn the second spot, followed by Lauren, who earned the third spot.
Thank goodness Cassandra, who never shuts up was sent packing – could you imagine her in the finale? For the last challenge, the final three would have stand on a totem pole and hold a huge “finale ticket” until they could not hold on any longer. The last man or woman standing would win the finale spot. After two hours, they had to remove one hand, and stand on only one foot – definitely, the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Lauren crashed first, and the guys were still hanging on.
Would it be Jeremy or Mike moving on to the finale? Mike held on as long as possible, but finally could take more and let go. That meant that Jeremy Britt was back in it as the final contestant in the finale – what a complete waste of an episode and an entire season, in my opinion.
