The Biggest Loser returns to NBC tonight with a new episode called, “Singles.”
On tonight’s episode, the 10 remaining contestants reach a milestone this week, as the competition goes from teams to singles. Wearing their new individual color shirts, the players meet host Alison Sweeney for a night-time “ring of fire” endurance challenge that involves holding a percentage of their individual weights. Alison also shares exciting news about an upcoming event that will be a “Biggest Loser” first for contestants, and sobering news that this week’s weigh-in will end with a double elimination. Now that the teams have been disbanded, trainers Bob, Jillian and Dolvett are eager to switch it up and work out with new contestants this week. One player struggles with self-sabotaging negative thoughts, and two contestants make it to the coveted “One-derland” at weigh-in and say goodbye to weighing over 200 pounds. Then it’s time for the dreaded red line, which will determine which two players will be going home. Did you watch last week’s episode?

On last week’s show, the contestants took a pop quiz about obesity in the workplace after meeting host Alison Sweeney in a diner. The location proved significant since that’s where the losing team would be working all week while still trying to eat healthy and exercise with much busier schedules. While the losing team stayed busy waitressing, cleaning up, doing dishes and squeezing in workouts, they still find time to bring “treats” from their day job back to the ranch to tempt other players. Meanwhile, one trainer worked closely with his contestant to determine what has been holding him back from bigger weight loss numbers, and another tried to help one player’s family member get started on the path to a healthier lifestyle. Then it’s time for another contestant to head home after a weigh-in that yields surprising results.
“The Biggest Loser” is a reality series in which 12 contestants become roommates under the same roof and struggle to shed excess pounds by following a disciplined routine of exercise and dieting while facing the possibility of elimination. Contestants will then have to maintain their weight and shape by carefully managing their behavior outside of the controlled house atmosphere, with the winner being the one who is most physically fit across the boards.
