Rebecca Meyer may have lost 73 pounds on the Biggest Loser ranch, but in the weeks after her elimination she gained a boyfriend: fellow contestant Daniel Wright.
"We didn't really like each other all that well in the beginning, and went from not liking each other to becoming friends to becoming best friends. After we both left the show, we wanted to spend hours on the phone talking to each other. I fell in love with my best friend," Rebecca told reporters the day after her elimination aired.
Biggest Loser's Alexandra leaves the ranch but finds love with fellow contestant
Okay, I have to preface this recap with the fact that I've always loved Laguna Beach and The Hills but even I'm getting bored this season. Can we please move on from the never-ending love triangles/quadrangles, or whatever they are now?
This week is all about the K-Cav/Brody/Jayde saga. First, the newly shagtastic Brody (and by that I mean facial hair, people) and Kristin meet for lunch. They talk about some of the "crazy times" they had while dating, and Kristin mentions that Jayde had asked her to sit down and chat. Brody is not a fan of the idea, but Kristin claims Jayde just wants Brody to be happy so she has to respect his ex for wanting to set things straight.
It's makeover week on The Biggest Loser and once again Tim Gunn, as well as Tabitha Coffey, were on hand to help. So who made it one step further to the finale? Keep reading to find out.
Each contestant had their own private wardrobe consultation with Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn. Once they choose their outfits, it's time to head to the salon for more of their transformation. Rebecca is nervous that with her round face she shouldn't chop off her hair, but Tabitha insists she has a round face no more. Rudy is also nervous about the scissors — he's adamant about keeping his facial hair.
This week's episode was quite the downer. Millicent's cocaine habit kicked in, Nathan and Clay both lost their jobs and Brooke gave Julian some devastating news.
The Bobcats have signed a new point guard, leaving Nathan without a contract and a team. Saying he's pissed at Clay is an understatement. As Nate confronts his agent, who hasn't even heard the signing news yet, Quinn walks in the room, which only makes things worse. Nathan had made it clear that Clay should stay away from Haley's sister; the fact that he couldn't do the two things Nathan asked of him leads him to give him the axe.
Kristin and Brody
With Jayde out of the picture, Kristin is moving in on her former beau Brody. The two go to dinner and Kristin coyly asks Brody what he "can and can't do" on his break with Jayde. The date must have gone well because soon Brody is taking Kristin by his mom's house where the two ladies gush over how things used to be, and how cute K. and B. are together.
The time has come for Justin Bobby to get the old heave-ho — especially now that Kristin and Brody are becoming more cozy. The two go for a little catch-up stroll on the beach and Brody says that he and his Playmate girlfriend Jayde are on a break because although he loves the girl, he doesn't want to fight anymore.
The Biggest Loser - Shay Sorrells, Daniel Wright
During the first week on The Biggest Loser campus, Daniel Wright — who competed on last season's The Biggest Loser: Couples — chose Shay Sorrells, the heaviest contestant, as his partner. Together they were Team Orange but were eventually disbanded when pairs became Blue vs. Black which then became singles. In a week when not one, but two, contestants were sent home, both 20-year-old Daniel (who started at 312 pounds and now weighs 224) and 30-year-old Shay (who began at 476 pounds and is now 322) had two of the lower weight-loss percentages. The dismissed duo discussed their nine weeks on the ranch.
TVGuide.com: How did the opportunity to return for another season arise?
Daniel Wright: I was at the finale of Season 7 and producers said, "Would you be willing to [do a "second chance" season] and we start filming in three days." I said, "Wow. First off, I'd like to rest, but second off, sure. I have so much more weight I need to lose and I need to go, so absolutely."
TVGuide.com: Were you worried you'd be targeted because you were a past contestant?
Wright: Oh yeah, absolutely. I knew that I could be targeted because...
It's Week 9, and not one, but two people are going home. To get things rolling, the episode begins with a pop challenge, which will reward the winner with a one-pound advantage. The players — minus Amanda and Liz who sat out for medical reasons — must put their tennis balls in their individually colored buckets. It's a simple game of running back-and-forth, and Allen wins...
Brooke may be preggers, Dan's back in town and Millicent is on a downward spiral with a new pill addiction. Just another day on One Tree Hill. And kudos to Sophia Bush for directing. Now onto the recap.
Brooke is upset that Julian has been spending his nights up late working with Alex who she doesn't trust in the least. But maybe Brooke is more upset that she thinks she's pregnant and Julian may not be react well. B heads the OBGYN and is nothing but smiles when she sees the expecting moms all around her. Unfortunately, her excitement is short-lived when she finds out she's not pregnant and won't be the girl who "gets the baby and the boy."
Tracey Yukich, The Biggest Loser
Tracey Yukich spent her first few days on The Biggest Loser ranch in the hospital, only to come back and game-play more than any other contestant. Dubbed this season's villain, the 37-year-old homemaker from Texas created enemies all around her, betraying some of her allies when she won the power of choosing teams. After being up for elimination against roommate Liz, Tracey — who's not sharing her current weight until the finale — was ultimately voted out this week. TVGuide.com caught up with the mother of four who has no regrets about her time on campus and says she has "amazing relationships" with the other Biggest Loser contestants.
TVGuide.com: Do you think you played the game too hard?
Tracey Yukich: On the show ... Alison said, "Tracey, some of these choices you made at the beginning have come back to bite you," and I said, "We all have regrets." After I got home and really thought about what I said, I don't have regrets. From day one, I felt like...
