The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 18 Season 9, Episode 18

With only the live finale left in The Biggest Loser, the competition is fiercer than ever and the contestants are headed home for the remainder of their time. Before they hop on the plane, each of the four players rewatch their initial weigh-ins, interviews and the triumphs they've had along the way.

Upon arrival to their hometowns, Michael, Koli, Ashley and Daris each weigh in at the location of their first live weigh-in. What a feeling it must be to be in the same spot months later with such accomplishments under their belts this time. It isn't long before Alison pops up on-screen and alerts each of the four that their final challenge is going to be a full marathon where the winner receives $10,000 for the charity of their choice.

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 16 Season 9, Episode 16

With O'Neal gone (tear), the players head back to SoCal to resume the competition. It's been 4 months, and the remaining 6 contestants have lost a whopping total of 805 pounds! So with that achievement, it's time for makeover week! I love seeing how each season's cast undergoes beatification to match their physical — and emotional —transformations.

Although this time around there's no Tim Gunn, it's still fun to watch each person put on clothes they never imagined wearing. But poor Michael still needs to shop at Big and Tall, all by himself. "Who loses 183 pounds and still can't fit into clothes?" he asks. Daris, meanwhile, lets celeb hair stylist Jonathan Anton chop off his locks, and the difference is immediate. As everyone goes to check themselves out, they're surprised by family members who have come to surprise them.

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 15 Season 9, Episode 15

Pack your bags because this week's Biggest Loser is heading to Texas. Why, you ask? Because according to Men's Fitness, five of the 10 fattest cities in the United States are located there. The overarching challenge for the week is to get the state fit, and it begins with a call to action: Contestants get on the radio stations and ask listeners to come join them in a 5k (3.1 miles).

Each player gets a team and away they go. Daris is looking mighty skinny as he races to finish first with a time of 21:02. He then heads back to find his team and finishes the course with them at his side. O'Neal inspires one 35-year-old and it makes me tear up. "Seeing how far you've come makes me think I can do this," she says to him. Isn't O'Neal the best? I loved his earlier quote: "The little things you do turn out big results and that's where it starts." Sam is inspired by a man named Jeff that has only ever walked a mile. At the finish there are lots of tears. One woman remarks, "I can't even walk through Wal-Mart. I have to take a cart, and I just walked 5k."

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 14 Season 9, Episode 14

Although it's always lovely to see Alison Sweeney on the Biggest Loser ranch, her appearance is always marked by a temptation or challenge. This week, she tells the contestants that for one day, they'll have to eat every meal in the temptation room because the kitchen will be closed. At the end of the day, the person who eats the most calories will cast the single vote for the week. The catch: That person must stay above the yellow line. Otherwise, the power will be lost and voting resumes as normal... read more

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 13 Season 9, Episode 13

No show gives better metaphors for life than The Biggest Loser, and in this week's episode, money expert Suze Orman explains that success comes down to change — change in body, habit, and every aspect of life. In order to truly demonstrate the importance of change, each player is tasked with balancing a tray with one hand, while adding quarters to it with the other. The person to hold up the tray the longest, and without dropping any change, wins the amount they put on their tray. The bonus is that each quarter equals a 10 dollar bill... read more

The Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 12 Season 9, Episode 12

It's been exactly three months since entering the Biggest Loser ranch and the stakes are getting high. Alison reveals yet another twist that can result in immunity for the week with the push of a button. As Ali presses it, lights go on, sirens go off and the scale is revealed. The first player to lose two percent of their body weight gets the reward, but the trick is, a contestant can only press the button to weigh-in once. So it's essentially a guessing game. Everyone is shocked when after only a short amount of time working out, Victoria takes her shot at immunity. She steps on the scale needing to lose 6 pounds, but doesn't do it.

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 Biggest Loser: Couples Episode Recap: Week 10 Season 9, Episode 10

As soon as Sherry is voted out, Alison alerts the team that she would not be the only contestant going home, but that everyone would be leaving for an entire week. The players are all ecstatic, but they'll quickly realize pulling a big number on the scale won't be as easy off the ranch. We see each person as they arrive home, and I actually got chills as they walked through the doors to their families with the cheesy pop music playing in the background. Of course, there's a huge box waiting for the players with a stationary bike inside. Is it a gift or a challenge? I think we know the answer to that as this is the Biggest Loser after all... read more
