The Biggest Loser 8 – who goes home?

Another Sunday means another weigh in and a sad farewell so let’s get ready to say goodbye.

We open up with the pink team talking to Michelle about the challenge and they now have a half kilogram weight disadvantage. She is going to give them hell and they are both pushing themselves to the limit. Janet has exhausted herself so much she is throwing up all that matters is they do their best. Michelle says

The commando has his group and is told that the orange team has an advantage of 500 grams. On top of the usual last chance training the contestants have one on one training with the commando and his gone up the intensity and the one on one training with Richard is so tough that he looks like he’s going to collapse.

Shannon has called in one of his mates to help out two time champion Daniel Geale. We are reminded of Gerald’s story and how far he has come Shannon calls him a fighter while Daniel tells Daniel reckons he has the fight in him to go all the way. Tells us they could go on to win it, if they keep their focus.

They now both weigh with the weight disadvantage they lost 4.6kg giving them a 2.89% Hayley say that without the penalty they would have been safe.

Michelle tells them not to worry they did the best they could since them winning the challenge would have been a miracle. With that Janet and Kirstin will face elimination against Mandy and Brett where everyone will vote.

In the elimination room the order at the table are Katie, Gerald, Richard, Todd, Robyn, Amber for the vote. Kirsten’s a bit teary because they’re up the wrong end of the table due to the disadvantage. Brett says there only hope is the alliance while Janet points out they aren’t that much of a threat since they have almost reached their weight loss goal and she doesn’t think they can win. Everyone on the non-elimination side of the table calls it a tough choice but here’s how the votes went down.
