Sunday night’s episode (April 17) of The Biggest Loser Families saw the number of remaining contestants drop from six to four.
Firstly, Sharlene, having sat out of the Mt Wellington challenge in Tasmania due to injuries sustained during the Sydney to Hobart boating challenge was eliminated as she ended up with the food having the most calories – her hope was ib the hands of someone from the other five chosing the food with the highest calories and who would therefore would have been eliminated.
After Sharlene’s departure from the competition, it was straight into last chance training and the subsequent weight in and elimination.
Sarah from the Moon family and Meg from the Duncans ended up as the bottom two with their weight loss for the week landing the two below the yellow line.
At the elimination vote, Kellie – the other Moon voted to eliminate Meg – obviously as family comes first, Leigh – the last remaining Westren voted Sarah out as he was closer to Meg leaving the deciding vote in the hands of Joe – the last remaining Challenor.
Despite some animosity regarding Sarah voting Damien off in an earlier elimination, Joe chose to eliminate Meg, and keep Sarah in the competition.
So then there were four – Sarah and Kellie from the Moon family, Leigh from the Westrens and Joe from the Challenors. The Duncan’s were left with none, leaving their trainer Tiffany visibly upset.
But that is not the end of it.
This week, four former contestants will be brought back – one from each of the four families.
The four trainers revisit the eliminated family members in an attempt to see how they have been performing “on the outside” and nominate one from each of their families to return to Camp Biggest Loser.
That will put eight back into the main game, all with a chance to take out the title of The Biggest Loser for 2011.
