Wow. Last night’s The Biggest Loser episode did not disappoint. We’d heard the rumors about “the walk-off,” and it was, indeed, cah-razy.
The episode started off straight into the drama. Apparently the contestants had gotten wind that producers were planning to allow a past contestant to possibly re-enter the race. As anyone who watches the show knows, that always happens. However, it usually doesn’t happen just before the finale—I’ll give them that. The five left—Jeremy, Conda, Kim, Mark and Buddy—were outraged at the “unfairness” and ended up each sitting down with a legal mediator to discuss the, ahem, contract they signed, which pretty much said that they agreed to all of the shenanigans. After all was said and done, Mark and Buddy decided to leave, while the other three stayed.
Oh, and Bob and Dolvett’s reaction to the walk-off was pretty cool. They had a bit of a bonding moment, and were seriously befuddled, and then later seem rightfully pissed that two contestants quit. Best line of the night? Buddy: I’m not a quitter, even though I quit the show. Hmmm…the irony of a “No Excuses” season continues to amaze me. The excuse this week should really have been “It’s not fair.”
After that crazy, the weigh-in was jaw-dropping, too. During Makeover Week, no one really lost a ton of weight, so I guess it’s not a huge surprise that the three contestants dropped big numbers. But Kim dropped an incredible 15 pounds—a whopping 9 percent of her body weight. Methinks she must have dehydrated herself big time to drop that much weight, but it secured her spot in the finale. Falling below the red line was Jeremy, which Conda was none too pleased about. She burst out into tears saying it—wait for it—wasn’t fair. Geez.
Oh, and because the episode was short and there was so much unscripted drama, they kind of skimmed over this week’s challenge that looked AWESOME. Conda, Jeremy and Kim did a condensed Tough Mudder race with BL alums Jon, Olivia and Patrick. Check out the video below to see how it went—so cool!
