Biggest Loser Families Recap: NFL and Thanksgiving Week

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.

tsk tsk Amy sry2say but I told you so. Keeping Vicky was huge mistake. I don't think she's going to win tho, I see Michelle & Renee together in the end.

It's amazing how lucky the evil people are on this show. Vicky and Heba are just PURE evil. I don't like either one of them. And the guy does just what his wife orders him. I feel bad for Bob having to work with such HORRIBLE people. It MAY be editing, but somehow, I doubt that.

Why do people say Vicky is "flying under the radar"? Everyone on campus knows she's manipulating the entire game. She is a spoiled brat. Her behavior in the football challenge was immature to say the least. She would be an extremely poor role model if she were to win this whole thing. Heba's in for a surprise if she thinks Vicky would stick by her side if it came down to it.

amy has no one but herself to blame for going home. major dumb move not sending vicky home last week... she knew vicky, heba, and heba's husband had an alliance and her only hope was to endear herself to the black team members. idiot. and if vicky or heba wins -- boo! neither sets a good example for the human race
