Before I get into the episode, there's BIG news! Jess and I are going to Buffalo, New York to be the trainers at the newest Biggest Loser resort dubbed Niagara... So I'm writing this one from the Hyatt in Buffalo after the huge unveiling. It was so awesome! Jess and I got to hang out with Hannah and Olivia, Jay, Jen and Ada. If you haven't heard already, Ada is graciously giving away a week that she won to the resort to four lucky winners that will get to work out at BLR Niagara with her. If you're from Buffalo or the surrounding areas and want to get the opportunity of a lifetime, check out biggestloserresort.com for details. This weekend was awesome and couldn't get any better!
Okay, so now that I've told you the big news, it's back to the show. As usual, it was drama from Conda - but this week, it ignited a one-on-one competition with Daphne. Both these ladies were chosen to go home and represent their teams on the scale. Just like Sunny did last season, these gals would go home with Bob and Dolvett and get their butts kicked, and only their weights would count for their teams. But just when you thought this episode couldn't be filled with any more, Ali came through with more. The team with the best percentage would give Conda or Daphne a one-pound advantage, and the team who won the challenge would also give one of the girls another pound advantage. Dang, these pound advantages were flying around like nobody's business. Where were all these advantages last season?
So Daphne and Conda were back home working out with Bob and Dolvett and the teams were left once again to do it on their own without the help of a trainer. Good luck... The Red Team was once again kicking it up a notch under the leadership skills of Kim. The Black Team looked unfocused without Bob. I must say this Black Team looked lost in the gym. I think they need to come to The New Biggest Loser Resort, Niagara, in Buffalo, New York, and Jess and I can show them how to get it done in the gym, and better yet, with a killer Last-Chance Workout.
Daphne was looking fierce at home with Bob, and Conda was going a 100 miles an hour thanks to Dolvett. This weigh-in was going to be a battle for the ages. At challenge time, Ali had both teams on the beach - this challenge looked so fun! The name of the game was both teams must get their whole team under three logs and drag a 200-pound dummy along for the ride... Awesome, lets get digging!
The Black Team started off strong, but the Red Team came out digging like pirates who found buried treasure and just crushed the Black Team like it was nothing. BAM! One-pound advantage for Conda. Although the pound advantage was good, the teams were also fighting for letters from home. In our season, letters from home meant the world to us. It was all the motivation anyone needed to go extra hard in the challenge, so I knew these teams went hard and gave it all they got.
Daphne was killing it, and in the Last-Chance Workout, Bob took her to the Willis Tower in Chicago to walk all the way up to the top in under an hour. Awesome! Now I want to do it, and you know Jess is in. So done, it's decided we're going to the top of the Willis Tower. Chicago, keep your eye out for Jess and me 'cause were coming!!!
After two intense Last-Chance Workouts, Conda and Daph were back and the battle was about to begin...
The Black Team numbers were so-so and Bob wasn't pleased. I couldn't believe the numbers; the Red Team looked like it might have a chance. Oh yeah, it was up to Conda and Daphne and all these one-pound advantages to tell the tale. The Red Team weighed in and thanks to Roy, aka Santa, and Kim pulling a crushing nine pounds, and Mark blowing it up with a 10, the Red Team won another pound for Conda. Wow!!! Conda got another pound; these advantages got out of hand, and Daphne had her work cut out for her.
Daphne weighed in and pulled a 12. Bob had done it again and helped Daph pull a stunner. Then it was up to Conda to get it done. She has to pull more then a 10. I'm thinking she had this; with a two-pound advantage, Black Team was toast. Conda weighed in and... Oh man, she pulled a 10. Daphne and the Black Team won the weigh-in and were once again sending the Red Team to elimination.
After Kim and Mark voted for Roy, I couldn't even watch this - was Santa going home? It was just ridiculous, and I will totally help Santa give these chumps a lump of coal this Christmas. Kimmy also voted for Roy, and Conda unveiled the last vote. NOOOOOOO... I couldn't believe it, Santa was going home...
Well I want to say that Roy, you are a beast and a great man. If you need anything, look Jess and I up, and remember, we're on the nice list :) Roy you got this... Good luck man!
'Til next week,
Peace love and Aloha!
