The Biggest Loser Episode Recap: Week 6 Season 10, Episode 6

It's time for another twist to the Biggest Loser game. Only two players — one per team to be chosen by their opponent — will face off to determine if Blue or Black is up for elimination. Anticipating they might be called out, Jesse and Jessica head to the gym bright and early.

At the Four Seasons, chefs Curtis Stone and Lorena Garcia are on hand for the players' latest task. Lorena is excited to be there since she lost 60 pounds herself from healthy eating and exercise. The contestants will be cooking in a competition, but the chefs are told not to touch anything. They can only instruct from afar. After three courses are prepared and taste-tested, it's a tie. I thought the main courses made with tuna looked delicious. To break the tie, the chosen taste-testers from each team must guess the amount of calories in the dessert dish. With Black busy arguing, Blue wins by coming closest to the count. Blue will receive an important reward for the weigh-in.

The next challenge is on the water — and very similar to last week's Thintervention task. In the rowing competition, Blue wins. They're kicking butt this week, and Patrick thinks they're gloating about it.

At the weigh-in, each team decides whose weigh in will count. Blue picks Elizabeth and Black chooses Jessica. The advantage Blue has from earlier comes into play: They can block Jessica's weight from counting, but decline the option.

Here's how the weigh-in goes:

Black
Anna loses 3 pounds.
Ada loses 4 pounds.
Brendan loses 11 pounds.
Patrick loses 9 pounds.
Frado loses 14 pounds.
Elizabeth loses 5 pounds, 2.29 percent.

Blue
Jesse loses 9 pounds.
Mark loses 16 pounds.
Adam loses 13 pounds.
Lisa loses 8 pounds.
Aaron loses 9 pounds.

It comes down to Jessica, who must beat Elizabeth's 2.29 percent. She drops just 4 pounds — 1.61 percent — and cries as she mouths, "I'm sorry," to her team. Blue must vote out one of their members.

At the elimination, the votes are tied between Blue's Jessica and Adam. Black gets to break the tie. They eliminate Adam because they feel he's the bigger threat.

At home, Adam looks great. He began the show weighing 402 pounds, left the ranch at 323 and is now 264. He's even gone to his local YMCA to start a Biggest Loser competition.
