Despite winning various Biggest Loser competitions and immunity challenges, Sam Poueu found it harder to avoid elimination as he went from 372 to 246 pounds. In Week 16, the 23-year-old Samoan only lost 2 pounds and was sent home, but remarked that he was the first contestant in the show's history to reach his goal weight on campus.

With O'Neal gone (tear), the players head back to SoCal to resume the competition. It's been 4 months, and the remaining 6 contestants have lost a whopping total of 805 pounds! So with that achievement, it's time for makeover week! I love seeing how each season's cast undergoes beatification to match their physical — and emotional —transformations.
Although this time around there's no Tim Gunn, it's still fun to watch each person put on clothes they never imagined wearing. But poor Michael still needs to shop at Big and Tall, all by himself. "Who loses 183 pounds and still can't fit into clothes?" he asks. Daris, meanwhile, lets celeb hair stylist Jonathan Anton chop off his locks, and the difference is immediate. As everyone goes to check themselves out, they're surprised by family members who have come to surprise them.
On this week's One Tree Hill, some couples finally formed while another called it quits. And while Nathan tried to remain supportive, his wife Haley kept falling deeper and deeper into depression and despair.
Although Haley tries to put on a brave face, it seems the jig is up when she acts complacent towards her husband and serves her son Chinese food for breakfast. She later shows up for her music video shoot but leaves before it even begins. When her manager Miranda gets ahold of her, Haley asks what the big deal is and says she's busy making soup. She then hangs up the phone and continues to agonize over perfecting her mother's famous recipe. When Jamie knocks over the bowl by accident, Haley flips out as Nathan watches his wife crumbling from afar. Haley later stars drinking and when she sits at her piano and drops her martini, she then decides to knock the candle over and let it go up in flames. When Nathan comes racing towards her and asks what happened she simply says, "I'm going to call my mom." Looks like Haley is in full-on denial and needs some help pronto.
Matt Davis tells TVGuide.com that it's looking pretty likely that Alaric Saltzman, the teacher and part-time vampire slayer he plays on The Vampire Diaries, will be back for Season 2. To commemorate that good news, we decided to count the ways we love Alaric.
1. Alaric's a great foil for Damon.
Alaric first teamed up with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) to save Damon's brother Stefan (Paul Wesley); this time the odd pairing will have to protect...
O'Neal Hampton, Biggest Loser
O'Neal Hampton and his daughter Sunshine were eliminated on Day One of The Biggest Loser — only to receive another shot at competing four weeks later. Despite the weight O'Neal lost on the ranch (124 pounds) and the strong allies he made with his competitors, the 51-year-old willingly went home after he became eligible for elimination along with his daughter.
When speaking to TVGuide.com, O'Neal credited his mother for instilling in him a respect for women, the reason he and Sunshine, 23, have such a tight bond. "I put her on that pedestal ... She should be treated with the utmost respect and if she gets it from me in my household, she should expect the same level of respect outside of my household."
Alison Sweeney: "Definitely some friction" on the Biggest Loser ranch
Pack your bags because this week's Biggest Loser is heading to Texas. Why, you ask? Because according to Men's Fitness, five of the 10 fattest cities in the United States are located there. The overarching challenge for the week is to get the state fit, and it begins with a call to action: Contestants get on the radio stations and ask listeners to come join them in a 5k (3.1 miles).
Each player gets a team and away they go. Daris is looking mighty skinny as he races to finish first with a time of 21:02. He then heads back to find his team and finishes the course with them at his side. O'Neal inspires one 35-year-old and it makes me tear up. "Seeing how far you've come makes me think I can do this," she says to him. Isn't O'Neal the best? I loved his earlier quote: "The little things you do turn out big results and that's where it starts." Sam is inspired by a man named Jeff that has only ever walked a mile. At the finish there are lots of tears. One woman remarks, "I can't even walk through Wal-Mart. I have to take a cart, and I just walked 5k."
The setting of ABC's new drama Happy Town (premieres Wednesday at 10/9c) may look quaint and picturesque, but Haplin, Minn. holds memories of a string of unsolved kidnappings. TVGuide.com spoke to star Geoff Stults about playing the son of a sheriff in a town filled with mystery and murder. Find out why Stults believes that...
It's been a long two-month hiatus, but One Tree Hill has finally returned for four more episodes. After a very long montage to remind us where we left off — as if we forgot — Brooke says, "Good morning, boyfriend" to Julian. It's nice to see them together again. But while one couple is back and better than ever, two couples are splitting before they were even really a pair.
Grubbs and Miranda
I'm not quite sure when these two became a storyline, but a few episodes prior, Miranda, the somewhat cold Brit who is in charge of Haley's record deal, discovered that Grubbs, the Tric bartender, had quite the musical talent. Just as he decided to give recording a go — and that he also has feelings for the girl — Miranda learns she's getting deported back to England. So what does one do when their love is about to leave? Propose of course.
The ladies of The Hills have had their tears, tantrums, crushes and catfights. As the final season of the MTV reality show hits the airwaves Tuesday at 10/9c, we're looking back at some of the most memorable moments throughout the last five seasons.
