Previously on The Biggest Loser Cal won the title of the fittest contestants at Camp Biggest Loser.
Tonight the contestants will have to do a firewalk to prove… something or other. Mental toughness? All it really proves is you know how the trick works!
Then it’s time for another Biggest Loser triathlon. Fun!
Sharon’s feeling a bit sore and sorry for herself after the pyramid of power. Jane says a spa would be really nice and Sharon agrees.
But nope, the trainers have arrived so it’s time to train! Steve’s going to take those he hasn’t trained this season while Shannan takes the others. Steve is taking Kev and Katrina to “make sandcastles”, which has Katrina excited for a moment. Then Steve says they’ll be taking all the sand from one end to the other.
Previously on The Biggest Loser Shannon decided she’d had enough and went home. Then Caitlin was sent home at the elimination, the first black team member to be eliminated.
Tonight Michelle has a special guest trainer with her at Ararat. And back at Camp Biggest Loser we finally move to the singles part of the competition.
Then a “gladiatorial challenge”… oh come on, it’s just exercise not a battle to the death. Or is it, Kev’s not looking so good!
But first the black team is having a quiet sit and chat about who’ll be coming back from elimination. Kerry’s particularly quiet as his wife may be the one to be sent home.
Of course we already know she’s not!
Previously on The Biggest Loser the black team had to carry a 5kg golden nugget around until weigh in. Then the weekly challenge was a pun-tacular event with contestants having to chuck tires in the back of a trailer. And that made them very tired. Sigh.
Tonight it’s last chance training, where Cal will chuck a wobbly, then the weigh in where Steve will chuck a wobbly at someone, then it’ll be elimination times!
Shannan’s got his blue team in the gym for a chat before training. They’re all a bit tired and sore from the challenge and gutted they didn’t win. Shannon says they couldn’t do it because she couldn’t do it. Her, personally, not the team. She couldn’t move the log, she says, and Cal’s nodding along beside her. Dick!
Shannan reckons Shannon could move the log and it’s just a mind over matter thing. So what are they going to do to win the weigh in? Work really hard, Shannan. Of course!
Shannan’s got them something for a pick-me-up. It’s a video from Cam, telling them to keep going, etc. Cal’s not interested and walks out as the video starts, leaving Katrina, Shannon and Kev to watch the video on the ipad. Kevin doesn’t even know Cam but he’s still listening politely, yet Cal can’t be stuffed?
Previously on The Biggest Loser the Ararat blue team won an advantage for the blue team at Camp Biggest Loser. Craig found a 5kg “gold nugget” the black team has to carry 24 hours a day until the weigh in.
Tonight Shannon’s going to make a breakthrough in training and then it’ll be time for the weekly challenge, this week that means lugging a bunch of tires and dumping them into a cage.
But first the trainers turn up to Camp to catch up with the champs. First on the agenda is the gold nugget explanation of course. Cal tries to grab the gold nugget away, half in jest, half seriously. Shannan approves!
Shannan’s come into the house carrying a newspaper and on the front page of the Ararat Advertiser is a picture of the blue team winning at their challenge. Cool! I guess.
Previously on The Biggest Loser Natalie was sent home, though Shannon probably wanted to go home a bit more. Too bad!
Tonight The Fridge and shark attack survivor Paul de Gelder turns up for a very special training session.
And a halfway mark checkin with the town of Ararat. Are they losing enough weight to hit that 26,000kg they “need” to not be the town of fatty fats?
Mish has her team for training first. Lake Bellfield in the Grampians is the location and it looks quite pretty. But for the various bits of exercise equipment on the shore.
