Biggest Loser Week 17 Recap: Who Just Walks Off?!
*SPOILER ALERT* This post reveals details from last night’s The Biggest Loser episode. So if you don’t want to know the dramatic details and results, click away, my friend, click away!
Last night’s episode had a lot of hype swirling about it. Like, a lot of hype. But did it live up to it? Yes…and no.
First, where it did deliver. The one-hour episode was jam-packed with action. We got to see former contestants like Sam, Ali and even Tara in the previously held pull-the-car-like-a-bad-ass challenge that was revisited (and she won—again!). And after some honesty from Rulon Gardner (I guess you can call it that…), Cara just let him get away with saying he was “ready to go home” (can you imagine Jillian’s response to that statement?!)—which he did when he WALKED OFF THE SHOW at the weigh-in. His reason? Personal. What. The. Hell. And then Kaylee gained two and rightfully went home. Finally. (Happy to see her at home rocking it though and getting her first-kiss on.)
Now for where last night’s episode fell a little flat. So little of the trainers! We’re in serious Bob withdrawal. And with Jillian leaving the show after this season? Ah, it hurts! We wish there had at least been an interview with Rulon after the show that either showed how he was doing at home or somewhat explained his throwing his hands up. But, maybe that’ll come next week. We hope. We also hope that next season all of the participants are a little more respectful of the show and the experience they’ve been given.
