Welcome to the Biggest Loser Ranch Week 15.
Well technically it's a conclusion from Week 14. Week 15 starts off with the First Lady meeting the contestants and their families. She is blown away by their transformations and lets them know that they push her to go harder in her workouts. Wow.
Soon it was time for a workout...with their families and the First Lady. It was awesome. She was yelling at Bob because he kept working out right in front of her. Dang, they worked up a sweat.
The First Lady mentioned a program. The Presidential Active Lifestyle Award. It's where people pledge to exercise and eat right for at least 6 weeks. They want adults being active for at least 30 minutes a day and kids 60 minutes. The contestant that has the most people sign up under them gets a $30,000 gym in their hometown.
I signed up...for Kim. When I started signing up she had 21 pages of people. By the time I was done, there were 46 :-)
The next thing we see is Chris calling her husband Roy at home. Um...how does she just get to call home? Isn't that breaking the rules? He says he wants her to come home. She reacts by eating. And eating. I got nauseous watching. She had a jar of Mayonaise that she was slapping on a cheese burger and on a grilled cheese sandwich. She also had a giant chocolate bar that she was eating with a banana. So okay, they are in a hotel. I get the room service. But, how does she just order a jar of mayonaise from room service? The cameras are right there. There was no hiding this. It felt a little scripted and staged.
The next day in the workout Bob got in her head. She shaped up.
So makeover week is usually a rough week on the scale. They miss a lot of time, but this week they even traveled. How will the scales go?
Buddy is up first and loses 9lbs. I was impressed. Then Jeremy loses 11. Wow...how is that possible? Conda loses 5. Um...Kim loses 2. Crap. Mark loses 4. He's safe. Chris gains 2. So it's between Kim and Chris. I got nervous. Now is the time to cut Kim. She is definitely a threat.
But, alas, they voted off Chris. Her head was not there.
Seeing her at home was heartwarming though. The whole family it going for walks and bike rides. She and Roy look great. I am so glad. I was very worried.
Okay kids, set your DVR now. Next week is the drama week. It's the week that shut down production. Remember the rumors that the contestants went on strike at the idea of former players coming back? This would be that time.
