Thursday on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, the show’s "Wall of Glory" offered a sense of pride for the athletes coming together as a community.
A sense of pride for what they had accomplished, and one day might again.
The past is the past, of course, and we’ve got work to do. A LOT of work.
In the first workout of The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, it hurts. Bad.
The mental and physical toll is starting to be taken on some of the stars looking to relive their Glory Days, making you wonder if they’ll ever get there.
By the end, though, the gang is firing on all cylinders for the most part.
The first challenge involved a crash course in nutrition and calories, teaching the athletes about portion sizes and food choices and how vital they are.
The winning team gets a two pound advantage at the scale, while the losing team’s trainers had to eat the unhealthy food in question during the quiz.
Talk about an incentive to Google some nutrition facts … or just watch The Biggest Loser online, because they’ve done a lot of the work for you now.
After the White Team wins, Dolvett, Jessie and Jen are forced to inhale bacon cheeseburgers, pie, soda, egg rolls … you name it. Not enjoyable.
You can see them plotting revenge on the contestants as we speak.
Thursday’s second challenge, a 24.8 mile spinner bike race, offers a four pound advantage on the scale to the winners, and they will have truly earned it.
The bikes are altered so the athletes are literally going uphill both ways.
In the end, the White Team triumphs again, and its members elect to claim that all-important four-pound edge on the scale, rather than letters from home.
The funny part is that their combined six pounds of challenge-earned advantages weren’t even needed, as the White Team won by over that margin.
The Blue Team, with a modest 16 pounds lost between them, is sent to the voting room, and there, Chandra is sent home from The Biggest Loser.
At Comeback Canyon, Emmy is welcomed by Bob Harper, and Andrea is ready to take her on. Emmy wins with a loss of 6 pounds to Andrea’s 4.
Chandra is on her way to see Bob next. Can anyone stop White?
