Biggest Loser Eliminates 1st Contestant

After being able to avoid elimination before entering the house the honeymoon period was over for the contestants last night when they faced the first competitive weigh in.

There were some impressive weight loss figures in the first competitive weigh-in with Cameron (34) losing a whopping 15 kilograms, the highest weight loss percentage ever in the first week. Coming in close was Craig (34) with 13.4 kilograms. Unfortunately for Rodger and Mary, they were both put up for elimination after the Blue team fell below the yellow line.

 In the elimination room, emotions ran high as the Black team had the final power to vote either of them out of the competition. In the end, they decided to give Mary a second chance, ending Rodger’s time  a full 5.9 kg lighter in The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia…..for now.

Since leaving the house, Rodger has returned home to Ararat to join trainer Michelle’s secret Red team. He will get a chance to fight his way back into the competition and Michelle will be there to make sure he will be ready.

The Biggest Loser: Challenge Australia continues 7:20 tonight on TEN.
