ONE PLAYER WILL CONTROL THE FATE OF ALL OF THE CONTESTANTS WHEN NBC’S “THE BIGGEST LOSER: COUPLES TUESDAY, MARCH 2 (8-10 P.M. ET)
It’s one of the most dramatic episodes of the season when the game changes to blue vs. black teams. And this week, one player controls the fate of all the contestants by choosing those teams when “The Biggest Loser: Couples” returns after the Winter Olympics on Tuesday, March 2 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC.
At the end of the previous Olympic-themed episode, contestants Darrell and Cheryl went head to head in a tough elimination challenge that ended in a cliffhanger before the eliminee was revealed. In the beginning of this week’s episode, viewers will see who lost that elimination challenge and was sent home. Then host Alison Sweeney tells all of the contestants that they are switching to blue vs. black teams.
And the winner of this week’s temptation will control the fate of all of the contestants, getting to choose which players go on the blue team with trainer Bob Harper and the black team with trainer Jillian Michaels, as well as which player gets immunity. But after proving victorious at the high-calorie temptation that put their memory to the test, the winner quickly finds their game-changing choices alienating several players – and one of the trainers.
Later, the newly-formed teams face off on the roof of a very tall building for a pulling challenge that will bring the lucky winners a special prize from home. Then Dr. Huizenga meets with contestants to give them their updated “Know Your Number” scores revealing how dramatically their health has improved in just seven weeks on the ranch. Finally, a tense weigh-in pits blue team against black before another player is sent packing.
