Last night on The Biggest Loser
, the teams were completely shaken up. Most players had to trade trainers in order to split into the black team and the blue team. Tonight's weigh-in will show us who benefited from the changes.
For their challenge, they'll be tested by the editor of Prevention magazine. The first team to get three correct answers wins. One player from each team steps forward. Mandi and Helen are up first. They both get it right. Cathy and Sione are up next and Sione gets another point for his team. Dane and Filipe square off and Filipe ends up winning it for his team. The black team wins! Each member wins a wellness vacation package for two.
Aubrey, Mandi and Ron decide to have some lunch and it's Product Placement Time! Frozen veggies it is!
Last chance workouts will be different with the different trainers. “I don't care if your legs fall off or your lungs explode” Jillian Michaels
tells Filipe as he runs a 12 on the treadmill. Mandi decides she likes to work out with Bob Harper
. Helen explains that Jillian beat her ass during the workout. All the complaints from last night's episode are gone.
Weigh-in time already. This seems like such a short episode. It's the first Black vs. Blue weigh-in. The Black team is going into the weigh-in with a 3-pound advantage. The person with the highest percentage of weight-loss on the losing team will have immunity.
Black Team, 57 (with the 3-pound advantage) pounds total, 3.65%
Tara, -11 pounds, 4.95%
Helen, -7 pounds, 3.41%
Sione, -10 pounds, 3.38%

Kristin, -10 pounds, 3.46%
Mandi, -7 pounds, 3.33%

Dane's lost 100 pounds in 8 weeks, which is the fastest any player has lost 100 pounds on The Biggest Loser
. Helen makes it below 200 pounds. Mike makes it under 300 pounds. Cathy wins immunity because she has the highest percentage of weight loss. The Blue team must decide who they want to send home.
Ron requests that Dane goes home because he has Blaine at home to help him. Dane immediately jumps in an plays the game card. If they send him home, the Blue team will lose each week. Ron claims that he's just thinking of who needs to be there the most. It looks like it'll be up to the vote.
