Biggest Loser Season 9 Episode 12 Recap – Keeping Our Head Above Water
Biggest Loser Season 9 Episode 12 – Keeping Our Head Above Water
That Was Easy
In week twelve of the Biggest Loser, Allison informs the contestants that the first player to lose 2% of their body weight gets immunity for the week. Each contestant must hit a button signifying they want to weigh in. That contestant receives only one opportunity to step on the scale for the opportunity to win and only one contestant can win it.
This is one of the most unique twists in the shows history and this challenge should inspire every contestant to work out twice as hard as they would have previously.
Sink or Swim
In this week’s challenge the players head to the pool for a swimming challenge. Each player competes to pick up 100 1 pound weights from the bottom of a swimming pool. The winner receives an all expense paid trip to the Biggest Loser resort. The last place competitor will receive a 1lb penalty at the weigh-in. After finishing the race, each contestant can go help others finish. As contestants flock to help first O’Neal and then Mike, Melissa comes in last place and it is obvious that she has no allies on the ranch.
Dr. H explains some of the dynamics of fat loss to the contestants and they proceed to work out nearly around the clock as well as debate the best time to hit the button and weigh in.
In sort of a surprise, Victoria is the first contestant to hit the magic Staples ‘That Was Easy’ button to weigh in. She hops on the scale and reveals weight loss of 3 lbs. 3 lbs short of her 6 lb goal.
The next contestant to hit the button for immunity is Sam who needs to lose 6 lbs and ends up losing 10 lbs or nearly 4% of his body weight.
The Scales Tell All
In an up and down week for the contestants Melissa and Andrea fall below the yellow line and of course Melissa gets sent home.
Next week Bob and Jillian take a bath. That is must see T.V.!
Talk to you soon and remember,
There’s A Winner Within You!
