Take a former NFL player, make him a contestant on The Biggest Loser, and then you get to have NFL week! Take a former Olympian, make him a contestant on The Biggest Loser, you get to have Olympic Training week!
I see a pattern here.
Week 3 of The Biggest Loser starts with a very dejected Blue team down 2 players and Anna in fear for her job. I mean, I really didn't know how they were going to turn it around this week. Becky can't carry the entire team!
No time to dwell- it's time for the first NFL week themed challenge! The contestants find themselves on a football field with life size cut outs of their visages, complete with a large stomach hole filled with netting. The contestants must throw a football into the stomach hole, eliminating their fellow players, last cut out standing wins.
Oh, and they have to compete with pro NFL players, too.
Winner gets $5,000! Ali also tells the players the contestant with the highest percentage of weight loss at the end of the week gets two tickets to the Super Bowl. Not a bad prize.
Courtney ends up winning the $5,000 over the smell of the testosterone, and Joe declares, "Every day is a good day on the Biggest Loser Ranch!"
Then it is time to darken the mood with a little one on one Bob and Antone time. Of course, Antone was in the NFL. I don't know if you all know that. He is feeling left out because everyone is making such a big deal about the NFL players and no one is making a big deal about the fact that he used to be in the NFL.
I counted. Antone and the word NFL or mention by others that he was in the NFL count: 21 times in 2 hours.
ENOUGH! Time for some crazy high school marching band music and a team challenge!
This time the players are competing as teams to burn as many calories as possible in 4, 15-minute heats. The Black Team annihilates the competition, burning 1,171 calories to the Red Team's 952 calories and the Blue Team's 764 calories. Bob declines the spa day prize, and the team agrees they don't want to be thrown off track like others who have participated in spa days past. Hello, Jennifer and Courtney from last season!
After the team challenge, the Red Team hanged out in Biggest Loser brand soaking tubs and talked about how much they love each other. Translation: The Red Team is getting eliminated this week.
After an NFL themed last chance workout, it is time for the Weigh In!

The Blue Team has saved themselves, Anna's job, and old man Mike won the tickets to the Super Bowl!
The Red Team heads off for a weepy elimination talk, where quitter Patrick tells them to vote him off (surprise) and they do just so. He loses 91 pounds at the reveal, cooking with his wife, running police officer obstacle courses, and vowing to win the big marathon later in the season. We'll see. . .
Next week: BOB vs. DOLVETT!
