The Biggest Loser: Black team drinks, smokes, dominates

So last week “The Biggest Loser” left us all hanging with Mikey about to get on the scale. If he lost 10 pounds or more, everyone would be staying another week. Well, did you think they were going to start a show with someone being eliminated? Nope, Mikey lost 11. But then Alison Sweeney had them all go outside where there would be a pop challenge in which everyone had to lean against a wall with a medicine ball in his/her lap and stay there. Also, this week, the blue and black teams would be facing off individually, with the winner of this challenge setting the matchups. Of course, Tara won. I mean, she wins all these things unless Laura brings her down. So since the black team has an extra contestant, Tara had to sit out one person from her team at the weigh in, and she chose herself since she had been losing double-digits every single week so far. I thought it was a smart move. The matchups were Mike/Cathy, Sione/Mandi, Filipe/Kristin, Helen/Ron and Aubrey/Laura.

Then came the challenge, a relay race in which the teams had to drag medicine balls through water, up stairs and onto a basketball court while doing squats. My legs hurt just thinking about it all. The winner would have 24 hours of luxury at a spa resort. Of course, the black team has Tara so they won, but barely. And the entire team started getting into trouble at dinner, eating badly, drinking tequila shots and even smoking (I’m not sure if anyone but Helen was smoking, but still…). Anyway, the black team knew they shouldn’t have done this, as they consumed like 15,000 calories as a team and the blue team only consumed 1600 calories at their meal. The black team was also incredibly cocky. But when they returned to the ranch and Jillian gave them an earful, Filipe flipped out and he and Sione went running back to Bob, or as Jillian said, “running back to Daddy.” Pretty funny, but sad and weird. Those guys need to loosen up and get over it. Maybe Jillian is harsh, but she wants to win too.

Anyway, the last chance workout was a bit strange as Filipe and Sione worked out with the blue team and Jillian only worked out four of the black team members. At the weigh in, Tara went first and lost zero pounds. Gameplay, since he weight didn’t count? If it was, she did a hell of an acting job…..Mike lost 8 and Cathy 4, giving Mike the black team a 1-0 lead; Aubrey lost 3 and Laura gained 1, making it a 1-1 tie; Kristin lost 7 and Filipe 1, making 2-1 in favor of blue…and Filipe was made at himself for letting Jillian “get to him”…whatever dude…..Helen lost 4 and Ron 6, giving Helen the victory by a slim margin and tying the score; and finally, Sione lost 6 pounds while Mandi gained 2. Black team wins, AGAIN. It doesn’t matter if they drink, eat bad food, or smoke, they are going to win every week until either Tara and Sione are gone, or until there are no more blue team members. I’m going with the latter.

Anyway, Ron, Cathy and Kristin were going to vote Mandi off, but Aubrey really wanted out. She pleaded her case to Laura, who gained an extra vote in last week’s challenge. But in the end, Mandi couldn’t let Aubrey go, and basically took a dive, voting for Ron. So Mandi went home, and she appears to be doing great at home with her family, and so far has lost 84 pounds. Way to go, Mandi! Meanwhile, Laura and her team have to feel sabotaged, because they wanted tough competitor Aubrey sent packing. Things are getting interesting, but I’m telling you, this black team won’t quit and won’t lose any challenges. But what will be fun to watch is when they are facing off against each other.

See you all next week, when I’m sure there will be more twists!
