The Biggest Loser – The First Elimination
Well the Big Kev not turning up for last chance training was over sold in the promos by the time Michelle Bridges got to the he was dressed and ready to go. His reason for not coming was he had sore feet.
His mum wasn’t looking too impressed or encouraging when he actually arrived you wonder if she really wants to be there. Though she is not very expressive, she looks like she has had a tough life.
It was time for the weigh in where one person would be going home:
- Robyn lost 6.4 kg and was now 98kgs and Kate was 121kgs losing 7kgs.
- Chris lost 8.6 kgs and he was now 134.8kgs and Mark lost 11.4kgs to weigh 142.4 kgs.
- Gerard lost 8 kgs to weigh 137 kgs and Todd losing 6.2 kg to weigh 105.5 kg.
- Richard lost 7.2 kgs to weigh 126.1 kg and Amber lost 4.3 kg to weigh 103 kg even with a one kilo weigh lost advantage they were still at the bottom at the time the ladder at the time of their weigh in. It was queried whether Amber had actually worked hard enough this week.
- Kevin lost 13.2 kgs to weigh 241.5 kgs and Rosemary lost 8.3 kgs t weigh 91.8 kgs. Rosemary looked happyish, but fired up when Michelle Bridges queried whether Kevin had done enough this week and had been taking proper control of his diet. She told Michelle she had been sitting next to him when he had been eating. But Michelle was not buying it saying he as lying.
- Janet lost 5.5 kgs and now weighs 94.2 kgs and Kirsten weighs 88.9 kgs losing 5.0 kgs.
- Anita lost 9.6 kgs weighing 108 kgs and Cher lost 11.2 kgs now weighing 161 kgs they were on top of the leader board.
- Mandy lost 6.5 kgs to now weigh 99.3 kgs and Brett lost 8.8 kgs to weigh 166 kgs.
- Sam lost 4.9 kgs to weigh 116 kgs and Jess lost 6.5 kgs now weighing 123.2 kgs. They also had a one kilogram weight loss advantage.
It was Sam and Jess, and Richard and Amber in the bottom two, which says that even though they both had the one kilogram advantage it did not help.
Only one person from each team was going to vote.
Richard thought he should stay because he brought a certain “oomph” to the house. “You’ve got to be around successful people to be successful” he said. He was honest and did saying that it was a competition that strategy was involved.
Have to be honest this much touted personality was not coming across on screen.
His line was saying that chances are they would be in the bottom again as they had landed there two weeks in a row. Richard said they were not a threat. He also went on to say that Jess had made it clear in the first week that she was here for fame and nothing else.
Neither of the girls were able to speak to their own defence on why they should stay. Jess’s dad said that she needed to stay because she at 21 years of age was a step mother to an eleven year old, and she needed to be a role model.
Kirsten pretended her vote for Sam and Jess was because they would be stronger on the outside but it was really about voting to save her buddy Amber. As was Cher’s who wanted to save Jess. Gerard voted for Sam and Jess because they were on the bottom. The rest voted on which team had truly supported them.
In the end Sam and Jess were eliminated however they will have a second chance to get back on the show at some stage.
They appear to have been keeping it going on the outside with a total weigh loss of 34 kgs since day one.
Tomorrow night an ambulance arrives after a training session. Do they push the contestants that hard just so they can have the flashing lights turn up and create drama?
