Fifteen special Americans
were given the tools and the opportunity to get another
chance at life... not to mention a shot at $250,000 and
the title of the Biggest Loser. The trainers were also
given a chance to save anyone that they deemed was
worthy enough to survive a Red Line but failed to do so.
Last week... Jillian exercised hers on Craig, so we
still have 15 on the ranch.
Craig notes that he is here
for his family and not to replicate the circumstances
that led to his father's untimely death. But if he lets
go of the guilt he feels for "having caused" his death,
he pushes him away. It's your classic damned-if-you-do,
Meanwhile, Ruben (you
remember him, right? American Idol, season 2, won?) has
some news given to him... His insulin level... high..
His hemoglobin A1C... high. His glucose...even when he's
sleep... high. "Between those different factors... You
have diabetes." Ruben: "I am... afraid." Luckily type 2
diabetes is completely reversible, BUT it's going to
take hard work and discipline.
Week 2 is notorious for
crap numbers. Week 1, you lose a ton. Week 2... plateau.
Normally, you choose to push a little bit past your
break. JUST enough to increase your tolerance for next
time. This is not normal. This is the Biggest Loser. You
will cry. You will cry a lot.
At the weight room,
Jennifer is showing signs of struggle. She's thinking
about her daughter, how she picked up her bad habits,
and how can she reverse the trend before it's too late.
CHALLENGE #1: Dash or Die
This week, only one
person's weight will count for the entire team, and you
will not know whose until the weigh-in. If your face
comes up at the roll of a die, then your weight will
count for your team. But the team that wins will get a
second die to roll and a choice between TWO people.
But today, there is a
standard-pipped die that you will roll to determine how
many water buckets you have to carry up a hill and dump
into a tank. The first team to pass the yellow line on
the tank will win the second die. Oh, and since your
fate is connected to each other, so too will you be
during this challenge.
Back at the ranch, Hap
gets some good news... he's a father. Meet your new son,
REVISIT! Remember Lindsay
Bravo from last season of TBL? She's literally flipping
over her new self. She's changed herself... and her
family in the process. Brother Jonathan has lost over 70
pounds and counting. She's now in high school with a
fresh new start and has become an advocate for health &
nutrition at her school.
LAST! CHANCE! WORKOUT!
LET'S HIT IT!
The entire team will
weigh in, but only the player whose face shows up on the
die to be rolled by the trainers will count. The person
with the lowest percentage weight-loss will lose the
weigh-in, and the person who falls below the Red Line
will be eliminated IF the trainer chooses not to use the
Bob has TWO dice. But
Dolvett will roll first.
By the way, eliminated

Ridge. With four locations in Chicago, Ivins, Malibu,
and Niagara. FREE MONEY!
