It's a new season at the ranch with new
players, new temptations, new twists, new turns, a new problem of
childhood obesity, and ... one old face.

chosen. Who will they be? Let's find out RIGHT NOW.

visit the ranch during the season, but they will spend the most of their
time working out at home. AND ... they cannot be eliminated.
Now to meet the trainers. Bob will work
with Biingo, Dolvett gets Lindsay, and Jillian gets to take on the

In the BL Gym... before & after shots.
Talk about motivation. We have the technology. We have the equipment.
And thanks to Planet Fitness, everyone in the house gets a free
First rule... do not touch the treadmill.
Meanwhile, Dolvett has the task to training the kids in a little
baseball. They only get the ranch for a week. Jillian is at the
treadmill "building soldiers". And man down. And another. And yet
another. And perhaps out, as Jackson is unresponsive. Turns out that
most of the players are falling like flies.
Dolvett trades out with Bob to work on
the kids, while Dolvett gets back into hardcore beast mode time.
CHALLENGE AMERICA: The Biggest Loser is
going online. Go to BiggestLoser.com to join the challenge and perhaps
win a trip to the live finale.
Did we mention Jillian Michaels is back,
and she's taking no prisoners? Actually, she's taken three already. And
she's putting them on notice: go hard or go home.
Back with the kids, it's more or less
introducing them to a healthier lifestyle, inside AND out.
At the end of day one, everyone is dog
tired. Cate comforts Nathan after his initial fallout, saying that if he
changes his thought process and gets up every time he falls, he'll
CHALLENGE #1: Have a Ball
In a ballpit are letters you need to
spell "THE BIGGEST LOSER". It's up to Sunny, Biingo, and Lindsay to tell
the adults where to find the letters... from sky high. Winners of this
challenge wins a 5 pound advantage going into the weigh-in.
The kids are sent off of the ranch for
the time being, but they'll be back from time to time. So stay tuned.
Meanwhile, enjoy these two bikes, an iPad, and a Biggest Loser workout
prize back including the Wii game. That'll be a big help.
LAST CHANCE WORKOUT TIME! No one wants to
be the first person to walk out the house. No talking. No nonsense. Just
And of course at least one person
power-puking. Jackson. Gina says that she's got a target on her back
because she's the oldest. She's the weakest. And she's gotta get out of
this box she's put herself in. As for the guys on the white team,
they're finally starting to dig deep. Can Nikki do the same? It looks
like she's all but given up... and she decides to walk out on the
competition. "You cannot help somebody that doesn't want to be helped."
Bob thinks that she's coming back.
Jillian... yeah, no. Nikki's not ready. And the White Team is not ready
to face that reality that someone ELSE may be next.
Tonight, there is no yellow line. There's
going to be a RED line, and the person with the lowest percentage weight
loss on the losing team is going home.
TC: 361 (-15)
Pam: 227 (-10)
Nathan: 339 (-20)
Danni: 239 (-19)
LBS LOST: 69 (5.61%)
RED (needs to lose more than 80 lbs)
Lisa: 230 (-16)
Jackson: 306 (-22)
Francelina: 248 (-19)
Cate: 225 (-12)
Joe: 338 (-26)
LBS LOST: 95 (6.59%) - SAFE
BLUE (needs to lose more than 91 lbs)
Jeff: 359 (-29)
Michael: 423 (-21)
David: 287 (-20)
Alex: 231 (-9)
Gina: 230 (-15)
LBS LOST: 94 (5.79%) - SAFE
That means that the White Team is going
to face the Red Line.
1) DANNI - 7.36%
2) NATHAN - 5.57%
3) PAM - 4.22%
4) TC - 3.99%
A stunned silence as TC Pool, a man who
has been trying out for this show for the last three years, is
eliminated on week one.
EPILOGUE: Since TC's elimination, he's
lost an additional 41 pounds, playing with his kids and not running out
of breath. He had to push all those negative thoughts to the side, but
he is well on his way to fulfilling his promise to his family. He
remains committed to weighing in at 245 or better by the finale. We wish
him all the best.
Stay tuned, kids. The journey begins for
the 16 that remain. And as hard as the trainers push, the players will
push EVEN HARDER.
