By the end of last night's show the number of contestants on The Biggest Loser Families had been whittled down to seven. With dinnertime confrontations, backstabbing, and trash talking, the show reminds me a bit of junior high, minus the unicorn stickers. Early into the episode we learned that Bob finds Vicky's scheming to be downright Shakespearean, and that Phillip really did confront Brady on the basketball court during the last episode in attempts to create an alliance late in the game. I admit, I thought Brady and Vicky had made up the entire event.
The blue and black teams squared off for a couple of competitions before their last chance workouts. First they played a version of "Eat This, Not That" from the popular Men's Health magazine feature turned best-selling book. The blue team won the game giving them a 40 pound advantage in the next physical challenge.
For the physical challenge players were suspended high in the sky where they had to hold the equivalent of their own weight via a pulley system. The black team having lost the previous game had an additional 40 pounds to hold. With the weight advantage the blue team easily won, and they won yet another advantage. Prior to the weigh in, the blue team would get to pick a member of the black team to be excluded from the final numbers. This advantage seemed to fuel the game-playing aspect of the competition.
To see what went down at the weigh in and who was eliminated, just
The last-chance workouts were grueling but tear free. Bob introduced his team to running outside and Jillian trained her team like athletes with lots of plyometrics.
The black team all pulled in extremely low numbers losing only a total of eight pounds. The blue team, on the other hand, all lost large amounts of weight. Especially Brady — he lost 13 pounds. So far, Amy has lost the largest percentage of weight and is the biggest loser on campus. After a serious amount of deliberation, the black opted to send Phillip home. He seemed completely homesick and ready to go. Phillip looks healthy and happy now. Check out the video to see how he looks today.
Phillip looks great and happy. So who do you think is going to win? I am starting to see Amy as the big the winner, what about you?
