The Biggest Loser Season 14 Episode 1
"We're Back And So Is Jillian..."
Okay, so back story - this was the first season of the show I ever saw. Go figure.
So, Jillian Michaels returned to the show after two seasons of being off. Bob Harper was back of course - he never left. Dolvett Quince came back as well - his second season on the show. This season on the show, they decided to try tackling childhood obesity for the first time. So, three kids were introduced who were to be Ambassadors For Change for other kids. Each of the trainers got one of the kids to train. Biingo, who wanted to lose weight to become a professional baseball player someday, went with Bob. Lindsay, who wanted to lose weight to cheer with her upcoming High School team, went with Dolvett. Sunny, who wanted to lose weight to look good at her prom and to feel better about herself going into College, went with Jillian. Then, Allison Sweeney plucked the contestants for the show from the audience. A guy named TC who had been trying for the past two seasons to get on the show was in the audience and he finally got picked.
The contestants and teams are as follows:
Jillian's Team [White Team] - Danni, TC, Nikki, Nathan, Pam
Dolvett's Team [Red Team] - Jackson, Joe, Francelina, Lisa, Cate
Bob's Team [Blue Team] - Alex, Jeff, Michael, Gina, David
Let the record show that Pam freaked when she saw her name on Jillian's team. Everyone got their respective colored shirts and got to work on the first workout. And, Jillian was tough on everybody on her team (and the other teams, too).
"Do not touch those treadmills!"
"Get your a** on the treadmill!"
She ended up kicking TC, Nikki, and Nathan out of the gym because they kept falling off the treadmill.
Each of the trainers went out with the kids separately. When they were with Dolvett, they could hear Jillian screaming in the gym - from well outside the gym! when Dolvett came back in, he was shocked. There were people falling off the treadmills left and right. Jackson kept on puking and couldn't stop. People were passing out.
Dolvett: "What the hell?"
Bob: "Oh, Jillian Michaels. She's back."
And Pam's unforgettable comment - "This is worse than childbirth. Not gonna lie." The next day, the three who got kicked out came and did their work.
CHALLENGE The contestants and the kids participated in this one together. The kids were hanging above a giant ball pit, directing the members of their team to where the letters were hiding. The letters were to spell out THE BIGGEST LOSER. Go figure. So, the teams went at it. Eventually, the White Team came out as the winner. They got a two pound advantage at the weigh in that week.
LAST CHANCE WORKOUT Nikki just didn't want to do anything. She gave up. Jillian got frustrated and gave her a choice. Nikki chose to leave. Bob kept on saying, "Oh, she'll be back." Jillian wasn't so sure. Nikki never came back.
WEIGH IN The two pounds ended up making no difference. They were already down one player as well. The Blue Team dominated, because the big men on campus, Mike and Jeff both lost over 20 pounds. The losing team faced the red line. It just so happened to be the White Team. The player with the lowest percentage of weight loss was immediately sent home. TC fell below the line. He lost it.
So, in one week, the White Team went from 5 players to 3...
