Heidi's biological dad Bill is in town, and he's a gun-toting cowboy who's never met one of his daughter's significant others before. When Bill shows up to lunch with the couple, Spencer admits that he's on his best behavior since his falling out with Darlene, Heidi's mom. Later, Spencer and the cowboy go on a walk where Bill asks him about his intentions with Heidi. Spencer wants to marry her, as we all know in the real world, since Spencer and Heidi were married before this episode aired. Bill tells Spencer to treat Heidi well and be there for her, and "remember that your father-in-law carries a very large gun."
In almost every season finale of One Tree Hill, we loyal viewers have been left with a cliffhanger to keep us guessing all summer long. For once, this was not one of those episodes.
The Biggest Loser, Tara
Labeled by host Alison Sweeney as the "Tiger Woods" of The Biggest Loser, 24-year-old Tara Costa won more challenges this season than any other contestant. Never once up for elimination through all her weeks on the ranch, the tenacious New Yorker was the clear front-runner leading up to the finale - yet ended up in last place of the three finalists. Despite the loss, the former model feels no disappointment: She still lost 155 pounds, or 52.75 percent of her body weight. Costa spoke to TVGuide.com about coming home from The Biggest Loser, how her competitive spirit keeps her going, and why she'll never go back to being the "fat chick."
TVGuide.com: You were the front-runner all season. Are you disappointed about losing?
Tara Costa: Standing on that scale last night, I knew that I did the best that I could. That's why today, I feel so great. I went to the extent that my body would go; I didn't want to look emaciated and unhealthy just to win a prize...
