The Biggest Loser
picks up right where it left off. Alison Sweeny has told the contestants that if they can lose a total of 77 pounds (7 pounds per person per day) then no one will be eliminated from either team. Mike is the only person who hasn't weighted in and he has to lose more than 9 pounds. And he does! He loses 11 pounds! Here are the results of the weigh in:
Tara, -11 pounds, 5.21%
Helen, -5 pounds, 2.52%
Sione, -3 pounds, 1.04%
Laura, -7 pounds, 3.00%
Filipe, -8 pounds, 2.82%

Ron, -6 pounds, 1.72%
79 pounds lost total!
Every gets one more week at the ranch, but their night isn't over yet. Alison Sweeny dismisses Bob Harper
and Jillian Michaels
and tells them to meet her in the courtyard. She announces that this week, they'll be going one on one. They will be matched up against one another: one blue shirt against one black shirt. Then at the weigh-in, they will be matched up to see who lost more weight that week and they'll get a point. The first team to three points will be safe.
The pop challenge will decide who will be left out of the weigh-in for the black team and the winner will decide the match-ups for this week's weigh-in. The challenge is a simple wall-sit challenge. The team members must squat against the wall while holding a six-pound medicine ball. The longest person to squat there wins. Ron is out first, followed by Cathy and Aubrey. Mandi is the only member of the blue team left. Filipe, Mike, and Laura all both drop the ball. It's four minutes in and it's only Mandi and Tara left. Mandi finally drops the ball and Tara wins again!
Tara must sit by herself in order to pick the match-ups. She must also decide who on the black team must sit out. The match-ups are:
Mike (286 lbs) vs. Cathy (246 lbs)
Sione (283 lbs) vs. Mandi (195 lbs)
Filipe (275 lbs) vs. Kristin (270 lbs)
Helen (193 lbs) vs. Ron (343 lbs)
Laura (226 lbs) vs. Aubrey (203 lbs)
Tara chose herself to sit out. She's worried about her decisions but her teammates tell her they're completely supportive of her choices.
Product placement time! Fiber One bars! Fiber so you can stay regular! Mandi and Aubrey
won't be blocked up this week. Thanks Bob Harper!
Day 2: Kristin and Filipe have the funnies rivalry when they start gym time. Kristin is not letting Filipe forget that she's a competitor. Jillian and Bob encourage the contestants to pay attention to their competitors. Filipe notices that Jillian hasn't bothered to work him out all day. You can see the frustration build. After everyone else leaves the gym, Filipe stays to get the workout that Jillian didn't give him.
Day 4: Today challenge takes place at 24 Hour Fitness. It's a relay race. The first person must take 24 six-pound medicine balls across the pool to another player where the second must run them upstairs. The third player must take them through obstacles to the basketball court. The fourth player must take them across the court to the other side and do 24 squats with each ball. Mike and Laura decide to sit out for the black team. The winning team will get 24 hours of luxury.
Filipe faces off against Ron in the pool. Filipe is clearly faster than Ron, who walks across the pool each time. Filipe finishes first and Sione takes off up the stairs. Cathy follows a little while later. He finishes and passes things off to Tara who army crawls under the obstacle course. Cathy passes off to Mandi who starts to close the gap between her and Tara. Tara finally finishes and passes things off to Helen. Mandi passes things off to Aubrey and Aubrey's clearly moving faster than Helen but she started off behind. Helen finishes first and the Black team wins! They remain undefeated in challenges.
