The Biggest Loser Goes to the Beach - September
Its time to keep on losing. The teams have been cut down, lets get caught up.
With the Red team suffering its first casualty, everyone is resuscitated by a
small temptation. Baked potatoes fully stuffed along with a bevy of other foods
await all the losers in the living room. No one is biting but everyone is
discussing how the red team feels that by getting rid of Jen that they have
gotten rid of their virus. The blue team resents this as they feel that the red
team still does not come close to comparing to them, but none of this matters as
it is all about the weight.
Kim gears the red team up with a dose of early morning positive energy, and she
has exciting news. The losers will be training at the beach all week!
The red team is amazing displeased as they know the beach is only going to bring
them pain and possibly the humiliation of wearing swimsuits.
The Blue team on the other hand is taking this in stride. They are looking
forward tot eh change of scenery, and it is likely a lot of this is because Bob
is encouraging them the entire way.
Unfortunately the only person who truly needs encouragement is Ken on the red
team as his son is in the Hospital in the ICU. Ken is torn up over this and is
not sure what to do, but after a call to the hospital he realizes that he cant
do anything that the hospital can not. Thus with a full cast prayer, Ken and the
rest of the losers band together and Ken decides to continue with the training
As the losers arrive at the beach, we see tents. Thats right, they will be
living at the beach and while they may enjoy the first few hours burying each
other in the sand, running in the dunes and lifting planks of wood quickly
brings the losers to their knees.
Kim has the red squad doing a circuit workout and a lot of the team is not
responding well to Kims shouting. Wylie is crawling on the sand, completely
Erik on blue is cursing up a storm at Bob. The big difference is that Erik is
not quitting. Remember, a cursing loser is a lighter loser.
After a good hour or so of training, its temptation time.
Sand castles are presented, some contain carrot sticks, some contain chocolate
and one contains immunity. Dig and you must eat, but get lucky and you will be
safe. Bob threatened his team before leaving that if they played that they would
Threats work. After some discussion both teams decide that it would be best to
stick to the program and all of the sand castles go untouched.
Bob and Kim are very proud of their teams and they celebrate with turkey burgers
at a beach cookout.
Bobby thinks he is pretty secure on the blue side because everyone likes his
cooking, but nothing is safe in reality but immunity (sandcastles, anyone?)
Bob starts off the next day with a yoga class for the blue team. Wonder what the
red team is doing?
Reds doing yoga too! Kim style though. The boys in red are goofing off and Kim
is not having it. Kai joins in and starts chiding the yoga and Heather points
out that their team is very dysfunctional.
Kim has had it and is bringing down the hammer. Now the red team is running
carrying medicine balls. Kai is pissed and doesnt want to run. Kim obliges
telling them all to take a break filling bags with sand. Then they have to run
again. Wow, this is punishment and Wylie tells Kim that she doesnt have to be
such a female dog (in other words). Ouch
Can the Red team pull it together with
a challenge on the line? Lets find out.
14 feet above the losers are suspended team flags the teams will have to reach
these flags by transporting sand from the beach and creating a mountain high
enough to have one team member reach the flag. The winner will decide which
member of the blue team will sit out the weigh in and more importantly, family
gift packs are on the line. The tears swell and spill as the packages sit just a
few feet away from the losers. The stakes are high and the game is on.
10 minutes in and the sand is about 2 feet high for each team. The big men are
packing the sand by sumo splashing the mounds with their bellies, and both teams
are realizing this is going to be a lot longer than expected.
30 minutes is the teams are at about 4 feet, and each is looking at jumping, but
no one has Jordan-like ups. Bring on more sand!
40 minutes in and blue is slightly ahead at about 5.5 feet to reds 5.
Marty is being begged by his team to jump and Marty laughs as they are no where
close. Nelson on red has a little more faith in his ups and takes the leap of
right onto Wylie
Wylie screams in agony as Nelson lands on his necks. After a pause from
competition Wylie decides that he wants ton continue and the game is back on.
At the 1 hour mark, a leap of faith finally pays off. There is screaming, there
is crying, and its all coming from the red team with flag in hand.
Blue is trying their best not to be crushed although their faces and attitudes
are more than despondent.
The red team enjoys some family time as they peruse their gifts. From teddy
bears to hand prints to toy cars, each member receives something very special
and the Red team feels that their spirit has been revived.
Blue is fighting back as they exercise to death in an afternoon workout. Having
lost out on the family reward, blue is working hard to make sure that they dont
lose again. They are proving that pain can be a great motivator.
Red is looking at their goal clothes that they aim to be able to wear at the
end of their stay at the ranch. All of the girls have selected T-shirts and
jeans. Kai additionally wants to be able to rock stilettos, but that will take
some time. Brian from Blue just wants to be able to wear his wedding ring again.
Melinda however is the raciest wanting to be able to wear some sexy lingerie.
Last chance! Make it burn! Get it right, get it tight! Both teams are fighting
hard, lets hit the scales.
Red chooses to eliminate Erik. Heres his weigh in:
Not a bad choice.
Now for the rest of Blue
Blue team Total Loss 55
Total percentage loss: 3.34%
Red must lose more than 57 pounds to win the weigh in. Pam is up first.
Red Wins with one team member left to weigh!
Let finish the weigh in.
That ladies and gentlemen is what we call a drubbing.
Total Red weight loss: 79 pounds
Percentage weight loss: 4.6%
And in what must be a difficult week to take, the blue team is headed to the
elimination room. Marty on blue has the highest percentage of weight loss, so he
has immunity, but someone else must go.
In an honorable move, the blue team stays close through deliberations and does
not attack each other or lobby against one another. They are still a team, but
they still must make votes.
Melinda regretfully votes for Tiffany
Tiffany returns the favor and votes for Melinda
Bobby gives his vote of confidence to Tiffany and votes her out
Brain likewise casts his vote for Tiffany
Amy potentially ahs the deciding vote if she votes for Tiffany, and she does.
Melinda is spared despite her weakest weight loss, but Tiffany shows resolve
that she can complete the task at home.
The blue team genuinely wishes her the best and better yet in an end of episode
recap we find that Tiffany is fighting through lifes set backs and has managed
to lose a total of 33 pounds. Her lifestyle has changed and she will complete
The battle of the bulge takes a high-tech turn as 50 people from
50 states with one thing in common... girth... compete to see
who can shed the most ounces.
