Weight and See: I can has cake?


‘The Biggest Loser: Couples’ recap, episode 13

By Ginny

A piece of chocolate cake changes “The Biggest Loser” game. In the sense that the last episode did not include a piece of chocolate cake, and this ones does. Does Roger Shultz of Enterprise take the cake?

In a contest of pointless twists, this one may be the pointlessest. Still, it turned out to be a pretty good week.

Find out why we’re not frosted, after the jump …

Piece of cake: Hostess Ali pops in and summons the remaining six players to the elimination room for a pop quiz. The winner earns a mystery prize.

The Biggest Loser

I iz a teacher. Teachy teach.

Usually the place for players to serve up their elimination votes to eliminate, the silver serving tray hides … a single hunk of chocolate layer cake.

The Biggest Loser

I has a flavor. Iz choklet.

Dan wins; he can either eat the cake or bring it to the challenge for a leg up on the competition. Dan chooses the latter and guards the cake with his life. For about five minutes, when he decides to go running and leave the slice unattended.

Roger seizes the opportunity to hide the dessert in the laundry room (which Dan never darkens), leaving a ransom note he attributes to Kelly. Hilarity ensues.

The Biggest Loser

I has a cake.

The Biggest Loser

Nooo they be stealin my cake.

Pecker order: Dan, the cake and the other players enter a big L.A. basketball arena for the challenge. Players run to concession stands, grab high-calorie treats, and place them on other players’ tables. The player with the fewest calories on his table wins $10,000.

Invisible ice cream man

Dan kicks off the challenge by placing his cake on Kelly’s table, and it’s no surprise when the guys continue to load up the girls’ tables with popcorn, pizza, cotton candy, ice cream and hot dogs. Nor is it a surprise when we cut into the challenge with clips of the tattoo crew trash-talking the girls.

The Biggest Loser

Yay it’s faturday!

Jay beats Roger by a frozen pint. Ali then offers Door No. 2: a 1-pound pass. He takes the pass.

The Biggest Loser

Oh hai I upgraded ur BMI.

The weigh-in: Trainer Jillian offers up extra-special beatings this week for Kelly and Ali (who seems to have figured out that she’s not one of the guys). And it pays off: The girls top the weigh-in, sending Mark and Dan to my favorite elimination ceremony ever. The Gang of Four has to turn on each other for the second time this season.

It’s win-win for me, but Dan is the one sent home. Guess he should’ve gotten the Pride tattoo.

The Biggest Loser

You is not teh biggest lolser.

Have the guys become too arrogant? Has this been a wakeup call?

“The Biggest Loser: Couples” airs at 7 p.m. Tuesdays on NBC 13.

Previous: Fashion show at lunch! Fashion show at lunch!
Next: The contestants go to Australia. Sorry, Dan, but your Vegas song won’t have a B-side.
