TRAINER BOB HARPER WILL REVEAL THE NEXT ELIMINATED CONTESTANTS AND HOW THEY LOOK NOW LIVE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN “
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – November 4, 2010 – For the first time ever in “” history, the two eliminated contestants in next Tuesday’s episode will be revealed live as they look today on the episode airing Tuesday, November 9 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC. “The ” trainer Bob Harper will be shown live throughout the episode at one of the eliminated players’ homes, sharing clues about who the eliminees will be before ultimately revealing them at the end of the episode.
This week kicks off with host Alison Sweeney telling the contestants that the black and blue teams are being dissolved, and instead, they’ll be competing as pairs. A high-calorie dinner temptation will determine who gets to choose the pairs – a game-changing prize that creates a lot of tension in the house and alienates at least one player who feels betrayed when the teams are chosen.
After last week’s disappointing weigh-in in which a record-breaking three contestants gained weight, Harper and trainer Jillian Michaels are more determined than ever to get the players back on track, and confront a few players about issues they can’t seem to get past.
Later, the pairs compete in a crazy challenge stacking sugar cubes until they create a tower five feet high. Then it’s the most explosive weigh-in yet this season, with all the tension of the week erupting into heated exchanges among the contestants and the trainers. A surprising elimination follows, sending two more players home. And Bob will be with them live to reveal how they look today, their current weight and what they’ve been doing since leaving the ranch in an“ ” first.
