The Biggest Loser – Starts Sunday On TEN
This clip reminded me how bad the trainers are at acting. The scene is from the premiere of The Biggest Loser where the coaches are allegedly secretly spying on the contestants to see all their eating bad habits.
The first episode is traditionally where the viewer gasps at their excessive weight and their gluttonous eating habits before we emotionally engage with their weight loss journey.
The good news is a little bird has told me that early in the episode there is a extended time where Commando has his top off hopefully I did not just dream that piece of information. And why isn’t THAT in the promos?
The blurb for next week’s episode:
Sunday, March 17, 6.45pm
Tonight, the contestants have no idea the trainers are spying on them from a surveillance van outside their houses. Will terrible food habits and sedentary lifestyles be all they uncover? Then, thinking they are on their way to The Biggest Loser house, the families are taken to an arena in front of 3000 fans to pledge their promise to themselves and each other. With the emotional weight lifted, comes another twist: arriving in bushland they must take a leap of faith and jump off a 10-metre high cliff and swim to collect their ticket into the house. No jump, no ticket, no The Biggest Loser journey.
Monday, March 18, 7.30pm
It’s the first weigh-in of the season and guaranteed to be one of the most emotional and powerful weigh-ins in The Biggest Loser history, with some children weighing in heavier than their parents. After finding out their starting weights, it’s time for the contestants to start getting that number down with their very first workout. Who will break down? Then, one by one the trainers and Dr. Swan show the children what they would look like by the time they reach their parents’ age. The health ramifications hit home for the contestants.
Tuesday, March 19, 7.30pm
Hayley Lewis pays a surprise visit to the house and reveals that if all seven family couples can lose a combined total of 100 kilograms this week, nobody will be eliminated. All contestants must work together to achieve this target. With that said, it’s time to get stuck into a challenge of epic proportions: arriving at Camden Airport the contestants have to pull a skip which has been weighted to match their combined body weight. They must pull the skip 500 metres in the ultimate race against a fighter jet.
It looks like the parent and child format could make it an interesting series.
The Biggest Loser Australia on TEN Sunday night at 6.45pm then Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm
