This week's episode of The Biggest Loser wasn't super tweet worthy. There were no slip n' slides, very little Bonnie moans, and no frank sex talk from Anna. Upon second watch, this episode is where the s*%t hits the fan game play-wise.
Up until this point, everything has been pretty hunky dory on the ranch. Maybe John ate some extra donuts, or Bonnie sent Coach Mike home instead of Becky, but people have been buddies and pals. Everyone has each others backs.
Then Jessica gets sent home last episode. Ramon is upset, obviously, because Jess is his girl and he wants to have her around. But when Vinny and Ramon start talking about it, they realize that Joe, who is now Ramon's teammate, may have some sort of former Black Team alliance in place.
The former Black Team still has more people in the game than any other team: Joe, Antone, John, and Sunny. The remaining Red Team is only Ramon and Vinny and the remaining Blue Team is only Becky and Bonnie. If Vinny and Ramon are on to something, Hardy Boys style, they need to work extra hard this week to turn the tables.
And this week is a hard time to turn the tables. Ali tells the trainers that only one team member's weight will be recognized this week. The trainer has the power to choose who it will be.
The episode is filled with various "Who should I choose?" montages listing the pros and cons of each team member, but at the end, the trainers choose (fairly) wisely.
Dolvett chooses John over Bonnie.
Bob chooses Becky over Vinny or Antone. Vinny looked a little hurt.
Anna chooses Joe over Ramon or Sunny. I would have chosen Ramon, especially since Joe lost 15 pounds the week before.
How does it all shake out?
Bonnie: From 221 lbs to 213 lbs- 8 lbs lost- 3.62% BW
John: From 329 lbs to 319 lbs- 10 lbs lost- 3.04% BW
Antone: From 353 lbs to 348 lbs- 5 lbs lost- 1.42% BW
Vinny: From 355 lbs to 345 lbs- 10 lbs lost- 2.82% BW
Becky: From 192 lbs to 186 lbs- 6 lbs lost- 3.65% BW (With 1 pound advantage won from challenge)
Sunny: From 218 lbs to 216 lbs- 2 lbs lost- .92% BW
Ramon: From 286 lbs to 280 lbs- 6 lbs lost- 2.10% BW
Joe: From 271 lbs to 269 lbs- 2 lbs lost- .74% BW
The Blue Team finds themselves in the bottom, and Joe's weight is the lowest out of all the contestants. He is confident, however, because he knows that Antone and Vinny have his back. That's at least two votes that he can count on. The one person who can't be voted off? Ramon. My, how the tables have turned.
Then we get to the elimination ceremony, and Joe gets a vote from Vinny AND Antone. Antone states that Joe is too much competition. Funny, that's what Joe said about Jessica at the last elimination ceremony. He is sent home to Dollywood where he can now ride the rides.
Good thing that the team work is starting to fade, because next episode is onto singles. Now for the good stuff!
