'The Biggest Loser: Couples' Preview: Lose 2%, Gain Immunity
Tuesday, April 06, 2010
In Jillian's words last week, once The Biggest Loser reaches the individual stage, the competition really heats up. Gone are the days of players trying to lose as much weight as possible while still working as a team. At this point, throwing weigh-ins seem more natural than in the earlier stages of the competition.
And with two players back on the ranch after last week's events, things have never been tougher. Vicky, for one, has never been on the ranch--she was eliminated twice--and suddenly has to cope with both adjusting to the ranch's dynamics and the increased competition. Melissa also returns, and we can safely guess she'll be back to her tough playing tactics again.
Tonight on The Biggest Loser: Couples, the first contestant to lose 2% of their body weight gains immunity. It's a small number, but heaven knows what could happen at this point.
Also, this week's challenge involves a swimming pool and weights. Nothing extraordinary, until you factor in the idea of contestants who have finished the task being able to help the others finish. It should tell us who likes who and who hates who--and judging Bob and Jillian's recent attitudes towards all this game play, they won't be happy to learn who the players want to stay and who doesn't. Should I keep a tight eye on Melissa?
The Biggest Loser: Couples returns tonight from 8pm on NBC.
