Previous episode: The Biggest Loser Australia: Singles Season Seven – Final Weigh In
As much as I love this show, I don’t know what is more exciting- the crowning of the winner, the new looks or the fact this show is FINALLY coming to an end.
We begin the show with a MASSIVE recap. Hayley welcomes the crowd to the show and tells them that the show have achieved the highest weight loss in history.
We then see Selena, Michelle & Bek in all their glory. Beautiful. Stunning! Selena’s had a massive makeover! After a quick interview with Hayley, they take their seats. We then see Kasey’s homecoming party when she exited the BL house.
After the break, we take a quick look at this year’s temptations. We then have a look at Shannan’s boys before they come out on stage. First are James & Luke who are not up for any prizes tonight. James looks skinny as and Luke just looks like a buff nut! These two have done amazingly well, but we’ve been keeping track of them throughout the year, so it doesn’t come as much surprise. James has had a tooth shine! They interview with Hayley as well before taking their seats. We find out that James and Michelle will be duetting tonight.
Ryan and Hamish are next. Ryan doesn’t look too different, but probably due to his size this is no surprise. He has noticeably dropped a few sizes. Hamish, despite more work is obvious, has done really well as well- he looks MUCH healthier and he’s dressed up quite well! Again, an interview later, the boys take their places on the couch. Before the ad break, we see Alex’s homecoming.
After the break, it is time for the red women to show themselves! We remind ourselves of the contestants. Then, they head out on stage (Lisa and Lydia) and don’t they look amazing- particularly Lydia! Lisa just looks sensational. Lydia has a croaky voice tonight- but boy has she worked hard! Lisa looks so different! We see a look at Simon and Lisa’s relationship.
We then see the black team in action over the series. They then come out on stage and they’re all wearing Commando glasses. Quite a bit of difference in Simon, but Shane also looks a whole lot lighter- and Graham looks great too! Graham is just so damn funny- I wish he had gone all the way!
A quick interview with Hayley and we find out Graham is going places in his home town. They then go to sit down. Before the break, we see Brenda’s homecoming.
After the break, the trainers take centre stage. They interview with Hayley who shows them a few packages of their training habits. Hamish is quite a feature in one of them! Hilarious. It’s then time for that duet with James and Michelle. James is on the piano and Michelle is on vocals. This must be a Biggest Loser first. I was going to say ‘Voice, eat your heart out’ and then I realise this is a Delta Goodrem song (Born To Try). She has massively powerful vocals! It was a bit short, but a wonderful addition.
After the break, it’s Margie’s homecoming. It’s then time for the eliminated contestant weigh in.

After the break, it is time to meet the finalists. First up, Margie. We review her time before she comes out on stage. HER CHIN IS GONE! I mean, it’s still there- but her OTHER chin is gone! She is so refined! Love it! Hayley thinks she is Australia’s answer to Ellen DeGeneres.
Next up is Brenda, and it’s the same deal in terms of process. Again, holy mother of GOD! The change is enormous and she’s definitely a contender.
After the break, it is time to see Kasey. She too looks amazing. Gosh, I just want to see the weigh in now!
Now, it’s for the thorn among the roses- Alex! He looks so different- he could actually win this! Wow! That is one hell of a change!
After the break, the trainers give out some gossip on the finalists. Time filler much? It’s then time for the final weigh in.

So, that pretty much ends our coverage of The Biggest Loser finale- and a word of warning- usually, preliminary information on the next season is always given in finales. This time, it doesn’t seem to have happened. This could indicate the show may not return for 2013, but this is pure speculation.
Enjoy your night, and congratulations to Margie, Australia’s third consecutive female Biggest Loser!
