'The Biggest Loser: Couples': Previewing Episode 9.09
On The Biggest Loser: Couples last week, the remaining contestants had to face the wrath of real-life living... err, I meant working eight-hour shifts and squeezing in exercise within what's left of your free time. Luckily they still lost some pounds (although a hard-fought last minute workout helped) and they posted considerable losses during the weigh-in.

Now, they all say you deserve a reward once in a while, and it seems the show's recognized that. Want a day in the spa, anyone?

Well, that offer only goes to half the players. It's a pop quiz, it's all about food, and either the blue team or the black team will get the chance go on a day of pampering--complete with limousine! The losing team gets to clean up the kitchen and the gym. I'm sure there's an opportunity for a pep talk lurking somewhere.

And, since we're talking about food, it automatically means we'll see Chef Curtis Stone again. He's not just here to help the contestants eat healthy--he did that before already--but he's hosting another food-related challenge. Each team has to make an appetizer, a main course and dessert in 30 minutes or less, using only 12 ingredients. And I'm sure the health factor is tossed in somewhere there.

Whoever wins that gets a huge advantage at weigh-in--what that is, I don't know--but that advantage surely won't save that team from having to send someone home. I mean, you burn what you eat, right? The Biggest Loser: Couples returns tonight from 8pm on NBC.
