Biggest Loser 13 Episode 2: The Drama Begins

biggest loser recap*SPOILER ALERT* This Biggest Loser 13 recap reveals details from last night’s episode. So if you don’t want to know the dramatic details and who was voted off of Biggest Loser 2012, click away, my friend, click away!

Drama, drama, drama. That’s all I can say about last night’s The Biggest Loser 13 episode. Week two is notoriously tough on the ranch, but both the trainers and the contestants took it to a new level last night with too much bickering, complaining and fighting (for my taste). I think @Annbrookstone put it best when she said “I want inspiration, not Jerry Springer!”

It all started with some smack talk during the poker game that, let’s be honest, Kim and Kimmy weren’t fully using their brains in. Then it escalated to Dolvett spray painting a wall on the gym for motivation and “stealing” Bob’s workout, which Bob was none too happy with. The energy was just off at the weigh-in, and everyone lost less than they wanted (yep, that’s week two for ya!). The pinnacle of drama though was the red team elimination, where Conda (who I always want to call Corona…) and Mike got into it. For too long. Santa tried to bust in and bring the two fighters back to reality with some substance, but it didn’t last long. It’s obvious that Mike has issues (smoking two packs a day as a 12-year-old? Like whoa.) and was making excuses, but it’s sad to see the show go so soap-opera-y so early. It might make for a long season…

Sad to say, but my favorite part of last night’s episode was probably Nancy cheering her team on by comparing them to “oxes.” Still, today, it cracks me up. Getting to know Chism was also pretty darn cool. He seems like a good kid.

  1. Yeah, I don’t know how much more I can take… I’ve been a dedicated viewer of the show since season 2, but the past few seasons (and especially this current one) have left me pretty disappointed.

    I understand the need (from the network’s point of view) for some drama, but it’s not doing the viewers any favors. I used to look at the show for inspiration while pushing through my own 90-pound weight loss journey, but these days, I really don’t feel the show’s producers have the viewers’ best interests (or even the contestants’, to some degree) at heart.

    If ratings are down and the show is on its last leg, I think it would be best to spend the remaining episodes focusing more on education and less on drama. I like when the show’s nutritionist takes the contestants shopping or when a guest chef shows them how to cook; these are the things viewers need to see MORE of, especially given the increasing rate of obesity in this country and the excuses that follow.

    That all said, if the heavy drama continues, I think my days of being a dedicated viewer of the show are numbered.

    I hate the drama… and the fact that the weigh in is 45 minutes. It’s great that they are losing weight and I find that inspirational but I care more about how they are getting there with their workouts and diet.

  3. Lindsay says:

    While I don’t love the drama, I think this season is already infinitely better than last season. No Anna, she was just plain unwatchable, I had to stop watching for the first time ever (still watched the finale though). I’m so happy she and her robot emotions aren’t back that I don’t even care about the drama. lol

  4. Tanya says:

    I found since Jillian left, the show has lost some of its appeal. Decided this week that I am giving up BL 🙁

  5. D says:

    I barely watched it that’s how bad it was, I love Dolvett and of course Bob but something seems off, the anger right off the bat between contestants seems weird especially after last years lovefest. I actually watched Heavy on Netflix recently and it gave me the same feel good feeling that Biggest Loser used too. The worst part of the Biggest Loser is the backstabbing game play, I really wish the person with the lowest percentage of weight loss for that week would just go home, that seems fair to me. I know that means more often than not that could mean women, or maybe like Survivor they could win individual immunity for a physical challenge. I don’t know, I’m just kind of over the game play portion of the show.

    Not loving the drama. Hoping that the “Anaconda” strangles herself with her own wicked tongue. What a hateful B…ch. get rid of her your show is sucking.
