Episode 9 Recap Season 4, Episode 9

Anyone else find it a bit ironic that this very special green episode of The Biggest Loser featured 132 bags of chips, 456 coffee cups, 300 ice cream containers, 180 pizza boxes and 504 hamburger containers for no use whatsoever? Really, what was the point of all that waste? Besides that, NBC does deserve some recognition for having this whole "Green Is Universal" campaign and incorporating little ways everyone can help our planet Earth. And what a coincidence that it's the first week of November sweeps. No, I'm kidding, I really do think it's great that they're showing how easy it is to make a difference. Who would have known that you can still work out on a treadmill without even using electricity? So the big shake-up of the week was when the trios were dissolved and new duos were formed: Nicole and Neil, Ryan and Isabeau, Julie and Bill, Hollie and Bryan, and Kae and Amy. At first I felt bad for Kae getting stuck with Amy, especially after Kae went for a jog while Amy napped on the couch. And you all know I'm not a huge fan of Amy's, but she did bust her butt during the challenge. Maybe she did it to win the 2008 Ford Escape Hybrid? Could Allison have said the name of the car a few more times? We get it, thanks! And it was pretty obvious Julie and Bill were going to end up winning the challenge since they showed Julie saying how badly she wanted to win and how she had to sacrifice so much to be a stay-at-home mom. But it was still very exciting for the two of them to win that prize. I loved when Jillian was begging the Black Team to tell her the prize was immunity. Speaking of trainers, it was really interesting to see Kim get mad at Bryan for not eating enough. One of the biggest misconceptions people have in losing weight is to cut back on eating, or in some cases stop eating altogether. So I'm glad she was able to remind him that a healthy lifestyle involves a lot of eating, it's just eating the right things that's the tricky part. A big congratulations to all 10 contestants this week as they each lost at least five pounds or more. It's all been so random each week, with some people losing double digits and some losing only one pound (whether on purpose or not). And it was hard to be happy for only some people seeing results while others were frustrated week after week, so it was refreshing to see huge smiles on everyone's faces. I still found myself mad at Neil and didn't want to root on his 18-pound loss. But it was actually pretty cool to hear he's accomplished what only four contestants in BL history have by losing 100 pounds before going home. Then again, Neil did vote for his friend and former teammate Ryan, so he's obviously still trying to manipulate the game. So goodbye to Ryan but hello to a great new body! His baby girl was so adorable, and it was so sweet seeing how proud his family was of him. Only nine more to go Check out Biggest Loser in our Online Video Guide . show less
