Biggest Loser Season 14, Week 2 - White Sees Red



This second night of the Season 14 premiere was actually week 2 on the ranch.  Now, we all know that the second weigh-in each season on Biggest Loser is brutal.  People lose so much weight the first week, their bodies don't necessarily want to lose weight that fast, and their metabolisms rebel by showing much smaller numbers on the scale.   Even if you're working just as hard as the first week - or harder - the body just does not want to let go of quite as many pounds.

Which is why finding out from Alison that there was another red line this week was a shock...instead of a team being able to vote off someone who wasn't trying or working hard, someone could go home that gave it their all just because the scale did not want to cooperate.

So of course all three trainers worked their teams to the breaking point.  From the looks of it, Jillian still had her work cut out for her, with two of her three remaining team members constantly crying, calling themselves pathetic, and saying "I can't" often.  Either Bob and Dolvett got lucky with their teams, or NBC just didn't show much of the red and blue team breakdowns.  (Gotta love reality show editing!)  Jill combined her drill sergeant persona with a gentler approach to help the Pam and Danni start breaking down those walls.  At least she didn't have to do that with Nate this week, because he'd already been through that the week before. 

It's funny how during workouts when the teams took turns with different trainers, they realized that Bob can be just as demanding as Jillian, and so can Dolvett.  Of course, funny guy Bob tells the white team to pretend that the medicine ball is Jillian's head as they slam it down.  By the end of the day, they might have been wishing it was Bob's head!  But I do love seeing all of the contestants get to work out with all of the trainers, so they can learn different things from each of them and expand their health/fitness knowledge that much more.

Even better - for the kids, there are no weigh-ins.  The trainers concentrate on testing their fitness levels and then getting them to improve each day so over time they get stronger and healthier.  They also stress getting away from the video games for a while and laying off the junk food, which is something kids across the country should do as well.  Heck, even some adults need to learn that...too much of more mature video games, Facebook games like Farmville, and online poker keep you on your butt too long.  Sunny and Lindsay were able to do all of the fitness tests, but Biingo could only do certain ones because he broke his foot playing basketball.  Like Bob said, at least he did it doing something active!

The white team won the challenge for the second week in a row, this time winning an NFL visit for their teen teammate Sunny's school.  The challenge consisted of football drills, and it was awesome to see the adults step up their game because they were motivated to win something for the kids.  They all just need to stay motivated for themselves too...for the times the kids are not on the ranch, and for the rest of their lives.

The trip to the scale produced a lot of anxiety for the teams and their trainers, and for those of us at home.  Quite a few players pulled decent numbers for week 2...until we got to Jeff, the last player on the blue team.  Up popped a big zero...leaving both Jeff and Bob dumbfounded, as they knew how hard Jeff had worked all week.  Jeff was sure he was going home.  But when the white team got on the scale, they lost the weigh-in by one pound.  This meant that Nate, with the lowest percentage of weight loss on the team, was below the red line and automatically eliminated.  Everyone was crying - and Jillian was crying just as hard as Nate.  She told Alison that even with such a difficult week getting the rest of her team in gear, the thing that kept her going was that she would see Nate working his butt off and really getting it.  They hugged, and she told him he was going to be OK at home.

Nate definitely seems like he's doing better than OK at home.  He broke the 300 barrier and decided the time was right to propose to his girlfriend.  She said yes, and I know he's working really hard to be fit and healthy for the wedding.  So Jill is right...he really is getting it!

Tune in next Monday (must get used to this new night!) to see the white team (with only two players left) and the other teams face major temptation...being locked in a room of fattening, sugary, and unhealthy foods for several hours a day.  I know I wouldn't want to be in that room...it will be interesting to see how they cope!

If you are interested in how to get pregnant after tubal ligation, it is the place to go! Sometimes women undergo laparoscopy, in which a narrow tube with a fiber-optic light on the end is introduced through a small incision below the navel and into the abdominal wall.
