Loser 9.13: With A Big ‘Ol Afro On His Head

April 14, 2010 at 8:21 am 9 comments

Hi, my name is Chelsea and I write Biggest Loser recaps. You may not know that about me because I’ve been MIA the past two Wednesdays, but I’m back. With my very own version of a recap… as Lauren calls it, my little episode of Chelsea Hurstly.

Off to a quick start. Alison immediately grabs the contestants from breakfast for a Change Themed pop challenge. The contestants will be holding a tray and balancing quarters. Each quarter is worth $10 and the winner keeps the money. This clearly has nothing to do with weight loss so we will have a very not-so-smooth transition to Suze Orman. By the end of this challenge, the contestants are seriously sweating and shaking. Mike and Sunshine are battling to the end. Mike ended up winning $1000 which they doubled because he gave 100%. They gave Sunshine $1000 because she also gave 100%.

They went to the living room and met Suze Orman , the original carrier of the Kate Gosslin hair-do. She talked about how… actually I don’t know… I was eating Easy Mac and forgot to listen. Last seasons’s Danny came to talk to them. Boy howdy, that man is good looking!! They chatted a bit and projected Sunshine to win the game.

Danny joined the group for a work out. I LOVED seeing Danny’s face in the background when Bob was giving Daris a pep talk. It looked like he was going to pass out. Koli and Sunshine worked out together and talked a bit of smack. “I didn’t know they did that for the at home winner.” Ha, Sunshine. You made me laugh. Victoria had a bit of a breakdown. She’s behind everyone else and is having a hard time adjusting. Jillian yelled at her a lot and then tried to have a shrink-session. It didn’t help. Victoria didn’t have any ah-ha moments. It’ll come eventually, it has to.

Sam and Victoria have a chat about figuring out the mental part of this. You cannot lose weight and keep it off without knowing why it was there in the first place. THIS IS A HUGE LESSON.

It’s raining and Ali looked so cute in her red jacket, cute hat, pigtails, and Burberry umbrella. ALI, how do you do that??? Granted you have hair and make up people… but I’m certain that no amount of hair and make up people could make me that cute all the time. Not all of us can be Alison Sweeney or Lauren From Texas (<– that’s a link).

There’s a challenge and two people will win a Mazda 3. They have to run out in the rain and mud and grab a key from the string of a giant balloon (can’t make this stuff up) and run back to test it. Repeat repeat. There are 150 keys out there, only 2 work. They are getting in the car while they are sweaty, muddy, rainy, and nasty. That’s gross. Although they aren’t actually wet when they get in the car from the view of the car camera. What is going on with this weird trickery??? Andrea won the first car! Yay for her! I’d be happy for anyone right now. Although I’m sort of tired of the “I love Sunshine more than life itself” crap. You love your daughter, I get it. But I don’t need to hear about it all the time. Anyways, maybe Daris will get the other, I love him. 40 keys left, 30 keys left…. and then O’Neal wins it…. naturally. So of course that means it belongs to Sunshine.


On to the workout. Andrea and Bob have a chat. Lots of mention of being deserving love and touching and hugs… which means approximately 17,000 people will google things like “Is Andrea dating someone?” “Andrea and Koli” “Andrea and Daris” “Andrea and Mike” “Andrea and who the heck?” Victoria had to run sprints again. She had to run 5 springs with each contestant. She whined her way through it but man alive, she may have killed with weight loss this week! I love that Andrea said, “Pick your head up, finish with pride!” Jillian tried again to get her to break down. She’s started. There were a few tears and even a mention of being “not goo enough” – which is usually where it starts.

Work out in the mud. I remember seeing pictures of this on Bob and Jillian’s twitter. Lots and lots of mud. Rubbed in Jillian’s hair. Loved it.

Last chance workout. Jillian beat up on Sunshine, Koli, and Sam. They didn’t care or complain at all. That’s what makes them winners. “BOB! I just jogged a whole mile and didn’t slow down at all!! I’VE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE!!” Mike is hilarious. Bob replies, “Good! Do it again.” So he does. With a smile on his face. And then he kept going to 3.1, he did a 5K. So Bob told him to keep going, he needed to get to 5 miles. Totally impressed y’all. I can’t run a mile. (Even pre-pregnancy, sadly.) Mike has really come a long way. HE is why I love this show! It just gives me happy feelings inside!

Weigh In Time! Alison is in a brown dress that is not my favorite.

Sunshine – 3  – 1.54% Not good, not good at all.
Koli – 6 – 2.17%
Daris – 7 – 3.00% Whoo hoo! Yay Daris!
Mike – 9 – 2.42% Fantabulous change! But EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW Hair in a ponytail! EWWW.
Ashley – 6 – 2.27% Good for her, stop showing Sunshine.
Victoria – 5 – 1.84% Good, not great. Not enough to be safe.
O’Neal – 5 – 1.77% At some point, dude, you need to wish good things for yourself. You can’t always be your daughter’s hero.
Andrea – 3 – 1.33% Super suck. I feel awful for her. Awful.
Sam – 0 – GASP! Whoa whoa whoa. He had a great attitude, but whoa.

They say their pieces. Andrea needs to be here still. Sam has lost a ton of weight and he doesn’t need to stay. Of course neither want to leave, but if we talk about NEED instead WANT, Andrea should be there. “I have nothing bad to say about Drea. I will not choose that route. I will not choose that Melissa route.” HA. She’s gone and she’s still got a bad name in the house.

Elimination: Sunshine votes for Drea. Ashley votes for Sam. Victoria voted for Drea. Koli voted for Drea. Mike voted for Drea. Drea got voted off. Which is sad, I do like her.

She goes home in her NEW CAR. She’s so pretty. YAY Drea! She lost 76 pounds on the ranch. It didn’t say how much she’s lost up until this point- I suppose that’s because they are getting close to the finale.

Next week on Loser: O’Neal’s brother died (I remember reading that on Twitter too) and there is a serious temptation. Whoever eats the most calories casts the only vote at this week’s weigh in.

That’s all she wrote.

    I thought it was funny when they were dragging Bob in the mud, he looked so hopeless.

    I thought that Drea should not have been voted off, these people’s reasoning for how they vote is just as bad as the reasoning for how our government votes on things, so much flip flop. I like Sam, but I think that Drea needed to be there more than he did.

    I love Daris too!!!! BL night is my favorite night of the week… I wasn’t a Michael fan to start out…. but I love him now too. 5 miles seriously…. that totally means I can do it!

    YAY Biggest Loser…..

  • 3. Heather  |  April 14, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I agree—I wasn’t a huge Michael fan at the beginning, but he is hilarious!! HIs facial expressions crack me up.

    And, seriously Sunshine, cry me a river. I’m so sick of the O’neal/Sunshine story — I’d like to learn about some of the other people also

    Glad you got to watch it and recap it last night!

  • 4. Jessica  |  April 14, 2010 at 11:18 am

    I love Sam!

    That is all.

    During the car thing I kept wondering if they had paper mats on the floor to keep those new car mats clean!

    Thanks for the recap. I missed the first half again. There’s a conspiracy DWTS, AI and Biggest Loser all on the same night.
    (I can’t watch DWTS with an 8-year-old around, but you know what I mean.)

    So sweet when O’Neal won the car for Sunshine! Loved it!!! Only one person votes?! That’s insano!!!

    I got your comment today, how do you find companies for giveaways??? Sorry I haven’t been around much and commenting, busy time right now!

    Thank goodness for the recap. I missed almost the whole program due to dinner guests. Did catch the last 1/2 hour or so.

    And Sam? Who could not love that guy.

  • 8. Debbie  |  April 15, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    So we had to switch cable companies (complete pain in the butt), our DVR got fried (bigger pain in the butt) all meaning that I haven’t been able to watch BL in the last THREE weeks. Thank GOD for your recaps. I’m now all caught up.

    You’re awesome. 🙂

    I am so, so, so, so, SO sick of Sunshine and O’Neil. I loved them at the beginning and even more last week (two weeks ago?) when Sunshine told him to stop being her hero. And HE’S STILL DOING IT! I mean, I get that you love your daughter and all but seriously, it’s a little sickening.

    And Mike? LOVE HIM! Last week, he became my favorite. He’s hilarious!

    Andrea was my girl to win it since, omg, she reminded me SO MUCH of me. So now I’m rooting for Ashley.
