Both Phoebe & Jenni and Allan & Romi fell below the yellow line at the first weigh in. It must be gut wrenching (excuse the pun) to find yourselves below the yellow line despite all the weight you’ve managed to lose. It’s an accomplishment in and of itself but someone has to go.
We’ve hardly gotten started and we’re already cutting a couple loose. It will be interesting to see if the opportunity to re-enter the competition by winning the marathon is enough to drive the weight loss program outside of the competition.
At the vote:
The Red Team: Wayne & Geoff vote for Allan & Romi
The Green Team: Rick & Joe vote for Allan & Romi
The Blue Team: Shannon & Chris vote for Phoebe & Jenni
The Grey Team: Phil & David vote for Allan & Romi
The Yellow Team: Caitlyn & Daina vote for Allan & Romi
That’s enough votes for Allan & Romi to be eliminated. Allan gives the double bracelet to Caitlyn.
It’s challenge day for the Biggest Loser couples. The prize up for grabs is immunity.
There are row boats buried in the sand which they must dig up then carry 200m to the otherside of the beach where they must untie some oars and then one of the couple needs to row 500m out to a pontoon to collect a flag before returning to the beach and racing back to the starting point.
Due to medical reasons, Geoff and Shannon are unable to compete. Wayne and Chris can either compete without their partners or sit this one out. They both decide to compete on their own as they don’t want to not lose weight and be penalised at the weigh in.
It’s an easy win for Rick and Joe who complete the challenge before anyone else even has another boat dug up. No one gives up though, despite the competition being over as far as the reward is concerned.
On returning to camp Biggest Loser, Trainers Michelle and Shannon ask them all to dress up as they’re going out for the rest of the day. They head to a theatre where they are told that they’re going to be doing some public speaking in two hours. Their audience, people who have applied for Biggest Loser in the past. 5 minutes of public speaking is one challenge that many don’t believe they signed up for. But self confidence is a huge part of weight issues.
Lisa is fairly distraught at the idea of getting up in front of people to speak but she shares her story it’s as moving as everyone elses. As everyone completed the task, there will be no yellow line or elimination.
