Since its premiere on October 15, "The Biggest Loser" has highlighted a series of firsts, from its first celebrity contestant (Ruben Studdard) to its first look back at a child ambassador. The next first: An auction for fitness equipment, revealed NBC on October 28 in a sneak peek of the October 29 show.
The third episode will begin with a "where are they now” segment featuring Fernanda Abarca, the season’s first eliminated contestant. She'll reveal how she's stayed healthy at home and lost weight.
Back at the ranch, contestants will discover an empty gym. The challenge: Bid on new equipment with "Biggest Loser" bucks in the show's first auction, emceed by host Alison Sweeney.
Will trainers Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince succeed in getting creative enough with the limited equipment to help the contestants shed major pounds? Given that Bob is known for his CrossFit passion, while Jillian can scream so loudly that she powers people across the floor, we're betting yes!
In addition, the show will feature a look at season 12 fan favorite contestant Vinny Hickerson and a contestant's confession about her struggle during her childhood.
Plus: Players get to Skype with their loved ones back home in emotional, heartwarming reunions. All that happens before the dreaded weigh-in.
