There are ten players left on tonight’s the Biggest Loser Challenge America. It’s only the fifth episode but there’s only one remaining player under the White Team, which is Jillian Michael’s team. Will she be left without a team to train after tonight’s elimination?
Last week, there were two remaining players left in Jillian’s team, but since they got the lowest percentage of weight loss, either Pam or Danni has to go. But since Pam got the lowest percentage of weight loss, she was automatically eliminated.
Tonight, contestants will learn how to make healthy choices on a limited budget. Titled “Waist & Money”, the ten remaining players will be returning from a workout surprised after finding out that the kitchen and ref are empty. Their task will be to fill it up with a week’s worth of affordable healthy food. They must race against time to make healthy purchases within their budget at a grocery. What healthy purchases will they make?
Meanwhile, the challenge for tonight will be a swimming challenge which will put the players to test as they compete for one of the the most coveted prizes of all. Who will win this challenge?
One contestant will be struggling in trying her best despite weight loss setbacks and Dr. H and one of the trainers will help one of the players realize the importance of addressing the emotional issues associated with weight gain, Who among the contestants do you think will struggle?
At the weigh-in, one of the players will be going home. Who do you think will it be?
