The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 11 Season 9, Episode 11

In this 11th week, ousted players get one more chance to return to the competition and as the curtain lifts, they all satnd completely stone-faced. The only person missing is Migdalia, who, Alison explained, had to stay home with the kids since her husband was sent to Iraq.

One by one, they step on the scale, but the twist this time around is that it doesn't matter who has the highest percentage — the current contestants will vote one person in.

The weigh-in (with starting weight in parentheses):
Darrell (413 pounds) is now 309 — down 104.
Sherry (218) is 156 — down 62.
Miggy (240) is 191 — down 49.
Victoria (358) is 285 — down 73.
Melissa (233) is 182 — down 51.
Lance (365) is 274 — down 91.
Cheryl (227) is 176 — down 51.
John (484) is 399 — down 85.
Patty (243) is 197 — down 46.
Maria (281) is 224 — down 57.
James (485) is 413 — down 72.
Cherita (277) is 230 — down 47.

Cherita gives a tearful plea for her daughter Victoria to stay, and the individual votes are in her favor. Victoria and Cherita were eliminated in just the first week on campus and never got their real shot at being in the competition.

Of course, there's yet another twist as Alison asks, "What if I told you there was another way to get back on this campus?" That alternate way: a competition in which the first to complete 1,000 steps on the stepping board nabs the spot.

Melissa and Miggy are neck and neck, but after about 25 minutes, Miggy has problems with her asthma, and Melissa wins. Besides rejoining the competition, Melissa and Vicky also receive immunity for this week.

Back on campus, drama brews when Koli tells Ashley that he thinks Stephanie threw a previous weigh-in to get Ashley's mom out of the game. Ashley then talks to Stephanie about it and says she feels like she can't trust her. Stephanie, shocked at the accusation, cries that the night Sherry left was one of the hardest on her. Although Stephanie seems to set things straight with her housemates, I'm not quite sure they all believe her. 

Time for the week's official weigh-in: Victoria and Melissa are first since they're safe regardless of their numbers. Victoria loses 2 pounds, 0.7 percent, and Melissa loses 4 pounds, 2.2 percent. Now for the rest of the players:

O'Neal loses 4, 1.36 percent.
Ashley loses 5, 1.81 percent.
Michael loses 8, 2.06 percent.
Koli loses 6, 2.09 percent.
Andrea loses 5, 2.16 percent.
Daris loses 7, 2.87 percent.
Sam loses 2, 0.76 percent.
Sunshine loses 6, 2.88 percent.
Stephanie loses 1, 0.50 percent.

Here's where the competition gets interesting. Stephanie and Sam are below the yellow line and up for elimination against each other, but there is no mention that they are an item. Stephanie is sent home and looks magnificent at her 30th birthday party. She tells her friends and family about her wonderful journey and how she fell in love. Well done, Stephanie!
