Biggest Loser 13 Episode 17: The Past Contestants Return

bl13*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!

Cue the dramatic music. This week on The Biggest Loser, the former contestants returned, ready to weigh-in and fight for a spot in the finale. After all of the drama last week about the past contestants returning to the ranch, I kind of expected this episode to be bananas. But, alas, it was pretty tame.

First, all of the past contestants weighed in. It was SO awesome to see all of them, and most were looking great and still keeping up with their new healthy lifestyles (it was like a warm-up for the finale, really!). The eight past contestants with the highest percentage of weight lost then moved on to a three-part challenge with Jeremy. While Conda and Kim have their spots solidified in the finale, Jeremy had to fight for his spot. And fight he did. After a 100-yard dash, calorie puzzle and balance/endurance challenge, he somehow pulled it out, beating Lauren and Mike. I pretty much credit Dolvett for Jeremy winning—he gave him quite the pep talk in the gym, as Jeremy had been really down (and pretty whiny, really) about losing the weigh-in last week.

Because I really, really wanted Emily to make it back on the show (darn!), I’m choosing to share a clip of her rocking burpees in Bob’s makeshift CrossFit gym on the ranch. Freaking 68 burpees is no joke…

Can you believe that next week is already the finale? Who are you most excited to see? Ready to put an end to this season? Tell us all about it! —Jenn

    I was so hoping Mike would beat Jeremy in the end! I can’t believe how much weight he lost, he’s a big inspiration! I was disappointed Jeremy made it to the final three, he can have a pretty bad attitude and his weight loss hasn’t been THAT Impressive for someone of his size.

  2. Jan says:

    Jeremy lost 150 lbs and had the highest weight loss percentage of anyone in or out of the house. If that doesn’t impress you, I’m not sure what will.

    I knew Jeremy was going to win due to all the facetime they gave him during each leg of the challenge. I was let down, I was really hoping he would lose. I’m not sure why they both want to be in the finale, only one of them can win, it would have been better for one to be the at home winner. Jeremy still has quite a bit to lose so no doubt he will probably win it. I was rooting for Emily, then everyone else but Jeremy. His whining bugged me, but then again, this is the season of Excuses (errr I mean no excuses…NOT)

    I can’t wait to see this season end. Worst season ever since the nasty duo of brown team members several years ago, they were so awful I’ve permanently banished their names from my memory.

    You know what really pissed me off? When I saw the eliminated players come back and realized/remembered that the two whiny bitches who quit the show both had family members who were there. That’s right – they were so freaking self centered that they were pissed that their own families were being given a second chance – in fact, in one case, Mark’s SON was being given a chance to come back. What kind of selfish prick is pissed off that his own son is being given an opportunity?

    The whole episode kind of left me gritting my teeth from start to finish. I was really hoping that Jeremy would trip over his own feet in the race and we could be done with him and his whining, but alas, no such luck.

    Thank you Jan for saying the facts. and for the person who wrote the article Jeremy won not because of a pep talk but because he is stronger both physically and mentally than anyone else that returned. No one was better than Jeremy or lost more weight than Jeremy or they would of been in the finals then let the facts talk
