Last week, a late Halloween
treat as the Losers were thrown into the pumpkin patch
looking for the ultimate treat, Immunity. The Blue Team
won it, and they weighed themselves into the next round.
On the Red Team, a sadder story, as Ruben Studdard went
from American Idol winner... to Biggest Loser loser.
At the house, the players
are commiserating on the loss of BOTH eliminated
The next day, Dolvett
introduces his team to the Beat Cancer Bootcamp, in
hopes that this will light a fire in the team. Beat
Cancer is a support group for fighters, survivors, and
families, that believe that physically stronger equals
As an aside, the battle
against cancer is a cause that's near and dear to our
hearts at the 'net. We've lost many friends like David
Zinkin and Randy Amasia to this deadly disease. Most
recently, cancer has claimed our good friend Alan
Mitsugi. If you want to learn more about these guys, go
Let's get back to work.
CHALLENGE #3: A Feast Fit for
The other half of the
Biggest Loser battle... nutrition. Here to help, White
House senior policy adviser on nutrition, Chef Sam Kass.
To him, nutrition is about balance. The teams have to be
balanced to win this cooking challenge.
You will have to cook for
yourselves AND the three Biggest Loser kid ambassadors
from last season, Biingo, Lindsay, and Sunny. Not only
have they themselves lost the weight, they've paid it
forward to their families. So they know a thing or
two... which is important because they're judging this
Each team will have 30
minutes to pick your ingredients and prepare your dish.
The winner will get a year of free produce worth over
RED: "Tapas Around the
World" - Italian Sausage, Steak with Grilled Asparagus,
Grilled Sweet Potato Chips, and Greek Yogurt with Fruit
(380 calories, 9g fat)
WHITE: Ranch Living
Quesadilla with Kale Chips, mixed berries (420 calories,
BLUE: Backyard Quesadilla
with Fiesta Fruit Salad (280 calories, 6g fat)
WINNER.... BLUES! Biingo
was only able to eat the vegetables from this plate.
PRO-TIP: The next time
you go grocery shopping for vegetables, take the kids
along. Chances are that if they pick it, they will eat
After the challenge,
Jennifer talks with Biingo and mom Michelle about young
Taylor and how we can right her ship before it's too
late. It starts with parents. Parents who exhibit bad
eating habits have kids who exhibit bad eating habits.
Michelle knows. She was there. She knows that Jennifer
can do this if she's willing to work at it.
Back to the game. The
Whites and Reds are down by one to the Blues, who still
have a Trainer Save. Needless to say, Jillian and
Dolvett are pushing their teams to the limit.
... which is a problem
for David, who is afraid of water. The Biggest Loser is
not just about physical transformation, it's about
breaking mental barriers. David... has to face his fear
of water in order to move forward.
The Blue Team has
something to prove, because someone thinks that they
don't have a chance due to coasting by the seats of
their pants. Chelsea seems to be the breakout star.
Now to the Reds... where
CHALLENGE AMERICA: Good
hydration is just as important as good nutrition. So
sayeth last season's Lisa Rambo.
Tanya could barely move
this morning. Now she's moving some more and hoping to
see a big number.
Before we begin, we have
an issue that needs to be addressed. Jillian broke the
rules by giving each of her team members caffeine
supplements. Due to this violation, the White Team will
be penalized four pounds. For fairness reasons, the last
weigh-in is invalid, the Blue Team will be immune once
again, and Ruben is BACK in the game.
Let's weigh in after two
Bobby: 317 --> ... 298 (-19)
Holley: 315 --> ... 296 (-19)
Hap: 363 --> ... 348 (-15)

Marie: 225 --> ... 213 (-12)

Tanya: 239 --> ...224 (-15)
Rachel: 216 --> ... 198 (-18)
TOTAL: 48 (5.59%)
Which means that the
WHITE team is in danger. So who falls below the Red
1) MARIE - 5.33%
2) JAY - 5.33%
3) TUMI - 4.64%
4) CRAIG - 4.00%
So Craig is out... and
