Confession: I slept through the first 90 minutes of the Biggest Loser tonight. And it didn't tape (I think Charlie had a hand in that).
So, welcome to my Biggest Loser: Fill-in-the-Blank Edition. AKA -- please, someone, tell me what happened!
The continuation of last week's show got off to a 1.) _____________ start when Mike lost 2. __________ pounds -- enough to keep everyone on the ranch for another week.
The first challenge of the night was 3.)_____________________. The
4.) ______________ team won. Their prize was 5. __________________.
At some point, the black team won 24 hours of luxury by 6.)_____________________.
Sione crossed the color line and returned to Bob's side of the gym for the last chance workout because 7.)___________________ [Did Filippe too? 8.)_____________ ]
And the players were squared off against one another for this week's weigh in. Tara sat out of the pairings because 9.)________________________.
Thanks for your help. I can take it from here!
The other pairings were:
Mike vs. Cathy. Winner = Mike (black)
Laura vs. Aubrey = Aubrey (blue)
Filippe vs. Kristin = Kristen (blue)
Helen vs. Ron = Helen (black)
Sione vs. Mandi= Sione -- with Mandi gaining 2 pounds, handing the win over to the black team.
Which means that someone on the blue team would be sent home tonight. Each blue team member gets a vote, as does Laura (black team) who has an extra vote left over from last week.
Besides Mandi's gain, there were two surprises at the weigh in tonight -- Tara lost 0 and Laura gained 1 (ok, so that's not much of a surprise). I have to wonder if Tara, knowing that she wasn't weighing against someone, didn't waterload to save a big loss for next week?
Amazingly Kristin said that Mandi needs to go home because she, Cathy and Ron are going to stick together. Is she nuts?! If she is really tired of the blue team losing she needs to get rid of Ron. The man is dead weight -- pun intended.
Mandi and Aubrey talk with Laura about voting for Cathy, forcing the vote to a tie and leaving the fate to the black team. The black team agreed to vote off Aubrey who said that she would rather go home than have her sister sent home.
Hello?! Why is nobody saying Ron? It's like he's got some Obi Wan Kenobi mind control powers. Instead of "these are not the droids you are looking for," he's sending vibes that say "I am not the one you want to vote off."
I guess there is the possibility that keeping Ron around is part of Cathy and Kristin's strategy, figuring that as long as he's around, they're not the weakest link on their team.
Mandi sacrificed herself by voting for Ron so that Aubrey could stay on the ranch. Wow! Finally, a strong woman emerges from that blubbering mess we've seen for weeks on end. And she looks great at home! She's lost 84 pounds and looks really happy for the first time all season.
