The Biggest Loser Episode Recap: Week 1 Season 10, Episode 1

The Biggest Loser is back. Can you believe the show is already in its 10th season? This installment is all about "paying it forward," and the first episode features, as host Alison Sweeney puts it, a cast of a thousand. So put the ice cream down, pull out the dumbbells and let's get to recapping.

At each location on the Biggest Loser tour, tons of fans are out in support of the three hopefuls competing against each other for two spots on the ranch. Michigan is up first, and we meet Jesse, a law clerk, Sophia, a school counselor, and Aaron, a graphic designer. They must complete 500 step-ups, which is no easy task. Sophia finishes first, with Jesse next. Bob talks to Aaron and tells him he's got to change and that he can do it. Will Aaron finish what he started?

Next, they head to Los Angeles, where Jillian joins Alison on stage. We meet Adam, who hit rock bottom after this mother's death, Ada, who's still reeling from two siblings' deaths, and Montina, a background vocalist for Beyonce. Their challenge is also to complete 500 step-ups. Ada comes in first, followed by Adam, who has support from childhood friend and football player Matt Leinart.

Mike Morelli from Season 7 is joined by Bob Harper in Portland, Ore. Here, players Corey, Burgandy and Tina must race one mile. Burgandy is first, and Tina gets second after Corey collapses right before the finish.

In Atlanta, we're introduced to Patrick, Rick and Anna, who lost her 3-year-old son to cancer. There are already tons of sad stories this season. They also much run a mile. As Anna stays at the back of the pack (with Jillian's support unsuccessful), Rick and Patrick cross the finish line first. 

Jessica, Mark, and Shanna compete in Phoenix. Although Shanna doesn't win a spot on the ranch, she promises that she starts her journey today.

Season 8 winner Danny is in Oklahoma with Allie, Lisa and Sandy. It's back to 500 step-ups as the challenge, and Allie and Lisa earn their spots.

The final locale is Boston, where Brendan, Elizabeth and Frado compete. Unfortunately, Elizabeth passes out, losing her spot on the ranch. But wait, there's a twist, of course. We knew it couldn't be the last chance for the players who just fell short. Next week, we'll learn how they'll be reintroduced to the show.
