Nothing screams November like football and turkey with stuffing. It was NFL and Thanksgiving week on The Biggest Loser Families last night. Celebrity visits spiced up an otherwise drama-free show. Former 49ers Jerry Rice and Steve Young (go Niners!) came onto campus to train the contestants football style, and Rocco DiSpirito taught the contestants how to lighten up traditional Thanksgiving dishes. The spirit of "friendship" at the T-day table felt a little forced to me.
Once again the two-hour format and repetitive editing almost killed the show for me. After watching another tip involving Extra gum I feel I should buy some stock in it because that gum is what America will be chewing. But back to the actual details. Vicky won both physical challenges, as she continues to fly under the radar. Michelle and Renee are onto her game and the mother-daughter team complained openly that they wished Amy used her swing vote in the previous week to vote Vicky off the show. The saddest part of the episode was Amy's naivety, for she truly believed that Vicky was on her side.
To see if Vicky had Amy's back and who was eliminated last night,
After being the biggest loser on campus week after week, Amy fell below the yellow line along with Heba. The black team voted for Heba to leave, while Ed and Vicky voted to eliminate Amy. Since Amy lost the smallest percentage of weight, a still impressive five pounds, she was voted off. Not much of a surprise, really. The alliance of Ed, Heba, and Vicky is strong. It was difficult to watch the voting and not blame Amy for putting herself in this situation. But it was heartwarming to see Amy's makeover and homecoming party once back in Detroit. She looks beautiful and confident, and watching her work out on the Michigan State campus, you can see how strong she has become. Go Amy!
Bob sent Amy home with a present. Sounds sweet, no? Watch this video to see what the gift truly is.
Is Vicky going to win this thing? Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
