Tonight on NBC one of my favorite television shows, The Biggest Loser returns with another new episode. On last week’s show the contestants were on their own last week when trainers Bob, Jillian and Dolvett left town to surprise kid participants Bingo, Lindsay and Sunny and their families with a visit to their hometowns.
Some players struggled without their trainer, but others rose to the occasion, and an unexpected leader emerged. In honor of last week’s “Pay it Forward” theme, contestants ran a 5K and money was donated to a local Boys and Girls Club, with the winning team earning $15,000 to split among themselves. Did you watch last week’s show? We did and we recapped it here for you?
On tonight’s show this week kicks off with the players returning from a workout, only to find that the kitchen and refrigerators are empty. Tasked with trying to affordably stock the kitchen with a week’s worth of healthy food, the contestants race against time to make healthy purchases within their budget at a grocery. Later, one contestant struggles to keep trying her best despite weight loss setbacks, while Dr. H and one of the trainers help a contestant realize the importance of addressing the emotional issues that contribute to weight gain. Trainers Bob, Jillian and Dolvett skype with kid participants Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny, and then a swimming challenge puts the players to the test as they compete for one of the most coveted prizes of all. Finally, a tearful elimination sends another player home
