I’m used to getting my weekly cry in during The Biggest Loser, but last night took the teary eyed cake. The players went home for two weeks, reuniting with their friends and family and enjoying plenty of feel-good moments (except for Austin’s friends who tempted him with cake and cheese fries—not cool, yo), such as Hannah getting her groove back on the volleyball court and everyone just being amazed at the contestants’ progress and changes. Next was the intense 5K on those funky CURVE treadmills that resulted in some team swapping. We seriously have to try that treadmill.
And then there was Arthur. I didn’t think that any weigh-in could top the last two week’s, but I was wrong. And cry like a baby I did. Arthur seriously breaks our hearts, and to see him join the red team only to be immediately eliminated by obvious game play was devastating. (The number of f-bombs we saw dropped on Twitter over this was crazy—and totally justified.) Thankfully, he went home and showed everyone that he can do it at home, losing enough weight to be below the 350-pound mark.
