Biggest Loser S13E02 - Too Much Vandalism, Not Enough Working Out

After a quick review of the first week, Alison greets the contestants and gives them information on what is going to take place during the week. First she informs them, the Biggest Loser on the winning team can assign immunity to only one person on the losing team. Most seasons this would seem ridiculous, but in this season it gives players an opportunity to give immunity to their former partner. But Alison is not done with the teams, she asks for two team leaders from each team to follow her. Emily of the Black team and Kim of the Red team immediately raise their hands. Reluctantly Joe of the Black team and Kimmy of the Red team raise their hands with no deliberation within the teams.

The four contestants follow Alison to a room with a table with poker chips on it. She says, "If you thought the stakes of this game were high, we're about to up the anti." With a five pound advantage on the line, each team will bet how much they can lose during the week. The team who bets the most, has the opportunity to win the advantage. But if they lose, the other team will receive the advantage. As a little help, Alison says the previous week the Black team lost 3.64% and the Red team lost 3.98%. With Red team having won the last weigh in they are given the option to bet first. Red team starts off strong with a 3.8% bet, this equates to 94 pounds, roughly 10 pounds per person. Knowing how hard it is to lose weigh the second week, the Black team opts not to challenge the bet, they call the Red teams bluff (if that's what it indeed was). Joe says he's going to let the Red team beat themselves, to which Kim laughs. She informs Joe they are going to beat the Black team, her attitude suggests Joe is weak for not betting more, but Joe knows better. When Red team ends up having to bet someone out, he's going to relax back with a cup of coffee.

The team leaders go back to inform their teams what transpired. Joe explains what has happened. Kim informs her team of their bid, stunning them. She's still very cocky and laughs at how easily Black Team folded. The rest of the Black team fully support Joe and Emily for folding. Kim thinks Dolvett is going to be excited by them winning the bet, but he's rather distressed. He knows losing 94 pounds week two is a difficult challenge at best.

During the workout in the gym, Bob refuses to lose another challenge, but finds Gail resting and Cassandra crying in a corner. To make matters worse, Dolvett annoys Bob by using a lot of his techniques. Then when Dolvett spray paints "94 lbs", Bob just about loses it. He ultimately leaves the gym's 'Toxic Atmosphere'.

Later, Rachel, the Biggest Loser Nutritionist stops by, Jeremy is immediately smitten with her. She's claims most Americans don't know how to eat healthy, so her job for the day is to show them how to eat healthy. Jeremy says he will listen to WHATEVER she tells him. Kimmy (of the former purple team) thinks it's a bad idea turning the teams into a grocery store, filled with cookies and chips. Rachel teaches the Red team some great substitutions and a few good recipes.

The next challenge promises the winning team six months of the Biggest Loser Meal Plan. For this challenge, they will be outside on the docks. Each team must spin a wheel which will bring in puzzles pieces hanging over the water. Once collected, the teams must solve the puzzle, then raise it up before the other team. It's a close race, but the Black Team narrowly wins. Kim from the Red Team is upset, but she's been taught if she doesn't have anything nice to say, to not say anything at all. Frustrated, she zips her lips.

Having concluded her assignment on the ranch, Rachel the nutritionist visits the Aqua Team in Chicago. She wants to help and encourage them, so they can make it back to the fitness ranch. Like she did with the Black and Red teams, she gives them pointers and tips using Jenni-O products.

On The Scale:
Red Team
Kim 239 236 -3 "I'm not happy at all."
Kimmy 210 206 -4 "Not what I wanted but I"m still going in the right direction."

Conda 285 278 -7
Mike 345 338 -7
Makr 282 274 -8
Buddy 381 372 -9
2.09% - They lose the bet and Black team wins a 5 pound advantage.

Black Team
Gail 313 308 -5 "I'll take a five pound weight loss."
Megan 252 248 -4 "Four pounds is not enough for me."
Cassandra 225 220 -5
Emily 254 250 -4 "I wanted 7, a pound a day. I'm not happy."
Chris 232 226 -6 "That feels really good."
Joe 342 334 -8 "I was pretty satisfied."
Jeremy 376 369 -7 "I'm now the heaviest guy on my team now that Ben's gone."
Chism 349 341 -8 "We don't have to go to that room again."
52 - 2.22%

The Red team has lost, but there will be two people safe. One is Mark who is the Biggest Loser of his team, and with Black team winning the weigh in, Chris (Biggest Loser of that team) chooses Roy to be immune as well.

As the Red team is deciding who is going home, Mike raises the question of sending someone home who hasn't been doing a lot of work. Conda immediately smirks and informs Mike he's the one not working hard enough. She says while everyone else is sweating, he's not. It's obvious she has a problem with Mike, and she shows it when they are in the room with Alison.

When making her decision, Kim claims Mike "...slacked and went back to bad habits." Mike challenges this comment and says the nutritionist informed him it was in his best interest to stop half way in a workout and have a snack. Conda tries to argue the point and things begin to get heated till Alison finally urges everyone to 'move on'.
Roy is next to vote for Mike and more heated words arise from both Mike and Conda. Once again, Alison encourages them to continue to which Mike & Conda quickly reveal their votes, each for the other. The rest of the teams votes go towards Mike. He's upset by Conda judging him and claims he's suffering from abandonment issues. She claims had she know this in advance, perhaps her vote would have been different. With the majority of the votes, Mike leaves the Biggest Loser Ranch. Since his adventure began, he has lost 56 pounds and by the Finale, hopes to be 120 pounds lighter and nicotine free.
