The Biggest Loser Episode Recap: Week 2 Season 10, Episode 2

Alison welcomes everyone to campus, then says: "This competition is about to get a whole lot bigger — 700 pounds bigger." Turns out Bob and Jillian were able to each select one of the seven contestants from Week 1 who didn't make the official cut. Aaron and Elizabeth are back in the game. Ali also reveals that despite the team colors, each player will be competing individually.

"You think you may know what goes on in this house, but you have no idea," Bob tells the contestants during their first workout. After lots of puking, and even passing out, it's on to Dr. H's office. The visits are eye-opening as always and we learn that Lisa's "inner age" is 61, not 31, Aaron has 51 percent body fat and has diabetes and Rick's heart disease risk is at 31 percent.

Next the players hit the kitchen. Bob and Jillian ask them about their typical meals (big mistake) and we hear about sandwiches called the Terminator and the Gravedigger. Soon after, three packages show up and it's the awful heart attack on bread meals they were talking about. It doesn't get much worse than sandwiches topped with fries. While it's all fun and games at first, Brendon gets emotional as he opens up to Bob about throwing away the love of his life. He and Bob will definitely be tight this season.

Alison tells the players that this week's weigh-in is about to take place, and that there will be a whopping eight people (half of the players) below the yellow line and up for elimination.

A huge amount of weight is dropped with the first weigh-in:

Mark
Starting weight: 421
Week 2 weight: 380
Total loss: 41 pounds, 9.74 percent

Tina
Starting weight: 263
Week 2 weight: 247
Total loss: 16 pounds, 6.08 percent

Patrick
Starting weight: 400
Week 2 weight: 378
Total loss: 22 pounds, 5.5 percent

Rick
Starting weight: 350
Week 2 weight: 314
Total loss: 36 pounds, 10.29 percent

Allie
Starting weight: 322
Week 2 weight: 305
Total loss: 17 pounds, 5.28 percent

Frado
Starting weight: 367
Week 2 weight: 340
Total loss: 27 pounds, 7.36 percent

Sophia
Starting weight: 372
Week 2 weight: 258
Total loss: 14 pounds, 5.15 percent

Ada
Starting weight: 258
Week 2 weight: 240
Total loss: 18 pounds, 6.98 percent

Burgandy
Starting weight: 231
Week 2 weight: 219
Total loss: 12 pounds, 5.19 percent

Jesse
Starting weight: 369
Week 2 weight: 339
Total loss: 30 pounds, 8.13 percent

Jessica
Starting weight: 282
Week 2 weight: 268
Total loss: 14 pounds, 4.96 percent

Adam
Starting weight: 402
Week 2 weight: 368
Total loss: 34 pounds, 8.46 percent

Lisa
Starting weight: 288
Week 2 weight: 272
Total loss: 16 pounds, 5.56 percent

Brendan
Starting weight: 362
Week 2 weight: 331
Total loss: 31 pounds, 8.50 percent

Elizabeth
Starting weight: 244
Week 2 weight: 232
Total loss: 12 pounds, 4.92 percent

Aaron 
Starting weight: 468
Week 2 weight: 438
Total loss: 30 pounds, 6.41 percent

Ada is the only woman to be safe above the yellow line, while Patrick is the only male below. Since Rick has the highest percentage he can save one player and he chooses Patrick. The rest up for elimination will compete in a challenge.

The challenge is a sprint to retrieve a flag and each heat only has one winner. Sophia wins the first round, and the women keep running in the rounds until the last person to qualify is Jessica. This leaves Allie and Tina as the two players up for elimination. The top eight contestants vote on who goes home.

Coincidentally, it comes down to oldest (Tina) vs. youngest (Allie). The votes are revealed and Allie is the first to leave the ranch. 

During her update, we see that she's lost a total of 60 pounds. Unfortunately her family isn't quite supportive, but she's found a friend in Season 8 winner Danny.
