'The Biggest Loser: Couples': Previewing Episode 9.10
For a moment, let's ponder this photo of Sam and Stephanie. One, they look good. Two, there's sparks between them, something pretty evident in past episodes. Three, if the official synopsis for tonight's episode of The Biggest Loser: Couples is correct, these two will have their first date.

Yep, I did say first date. But a part of me also thinks it's Sunshine who'll get it.

Tonight's episode isn't about first dates, though--at least not solely about it. It's not like they'll have time to date while in the ranch, right? The remaining contestants will get that time tonight, as they are sent home to reunite with their loved ones... but the game is not over yet. There is an at-home challenge: each contestant gets a stationary bike to work out on at home, and they have to ride 26.2 miles on it--the length of a full marathon, pretty much what they did on the first week.

But to complicate things further, there's a temptation, in the form of 48 mini-cupcakes. For each cupcake a contestant each, he gets five minutes to add to the total biking time of any contestant of his choice. It could make or break someone's chances--especially with $10,000 on the line for the winner.

And, of course, there are the emotional reunions, as possibly, those reunions getting in the way of the contestants' workouts. I guess it'll get too emotional. And then there's the weigh-in, and then one more contestant really gets sent home, on The Biggest Loser: Couples, tonight from 8pm on NBC.
