It's the Return: 13 Compete Again
November 19
Last week, after a cookoff with the kid ambassadors from last season, an announcement sent waves around the weigh-in. Blues were immune, Craig is sent home, as he's below the Red Line... and Ruben Studdard is BACK.

Back to Craig, though. He's at 271 and 110 pounds lighter. Most of his time at home is spent talking to his late father. After that, he's not afraid of 32. And when the finale comes, he hopes to be at 190.

Ruben is back in the house awaiting his teammates and the rest of the crew, but this time, there's no second chances. The good news, like his first album title, he's soulful, an expert at bringing up even the lowest spirit. That is evident in the fact that he didn't waste a second of his brief absence.

The next day, Jillian apologizes to her team for the rules infraction, saying that the team did nothing wrong. They are here to work... so let's work.

CHALLENGE #4: Work Zone

The winners of this challenge is getting CASH.. $1000 each, to be exact. Each team will have to take balls, run them 250 feet, and bounce them over a ravine to a waiting teammate, who will then bounce the balls to a score zone worth 1, 2, or 3 points. First team to 30 wins.

David gets the Reds halfway to the goal.... and then the REST of the way. David and the Reds win $1000 each!

Next day... the heavy lift begins. The Reds are fired up from last night's win and from Ruben's return. They are starting to believe that they are a team and they can win together. Sixty-two pounds later, Rachel is going from homebody to team player. Bob is looking to keep the Blues focused. He still has a save, and he will use it on someone who he believes can make it do what it do. As for Jillian, she's working her tail off to work her team's tail off. After all, there are two people you do not forget: those who are with you when you're knocked down, and those who knock you down. Everyone on this team has a dream. Tumi's is the white dress, Marie's is the ring, and Jay's... he just has to throw up.

After a workout, a card: "Remember why you're here". With that are three DVDs... of yourselves.

Next day, it's a special delivery... lunch with season 14 Biggest Loser Danni Allen. Three guesses what it is. And no, you can't just get fit by eating a sandwich. Look up the science.

Later on, Dolvett takes Ruben to see an old friend of his... David. Foster. THE David Foster. Dolvett wants to see the Velvet Teddy Bear at work with a song that is appropriate for what he's going through right now. Yeah, this song isn't going to be performed at the finale. No chance. Just like we're all not getting Subway for lunch.

Now you sing, Dolvett! Just kidding!


Red Line is in play.

Hap: 348 --> ... 340 (-8)
Holley: 296 --> ... 291 (-5)
Matt: 294 --> ...290 (-4)
Chelsea: 202 --> ... 197 (-5)
Bobby: 298 --> ... 293 (-5)
TOTAL: 27 (1.88%)

Jay: 231 --> ... 226 (-5)
Marie: 213 --> ... 207 (-6)
Tumi (needs 2 to move into the lead): 267 --> ... 256 (-11)
TOTAL: 22 (3.09%) - SAFE!

RED: (needs to lose more than 26)
Ruben: 409 --> ... 401 (-8)
Rachel: 198 --> ... 195 (-3)
Tanya: 224 --> ...220 (-4)
Jennifer: 224 --> ... 220 (-4)
David: 334 --> ... 317 (-17)
TOTAL: 36 (2.59%)

Which means that the BLUE team is in danger. So who falls below the Red Line?

1) CHELSEA - 2.48%
2) HAP - 2.30%
3) HOLLEY - 1.69%
4) BOBBY - 1.68%
5) MATT - 1.36%

Matt is not the Biggest Loser.... but he will return next week, because Bob has used the final Save of the series. But from here on out, no more second chances.
