‘Biggest Loser’ season 15 week 9 recap: Forward rolls and gravy

Tonight's "Biggest Loser" proved that yes, you can fit in exercise with a full-time job. One team got to prove that while Bob's team took a hit at the weigh-in. But first, read on...

The contestants met host Alison Sweeney in a diner, which was the setting for a pop challenge on workplace obesity facts. (Apparently, we are a nation of overweight, fast-food eating office workers.) The losers would have to work in the cheesecake-filled diner all week.

The white team lost the challenge and will be slinging hash all week.

Ruben Studdard’s update showed that he’s now down 112 pounds and his mom has big plans for his weight loss. “When I see you again, you’re gonna have that LL Cool J body!” she exclaimed. The Velvet Teddy Bear has got some work to do!

What does Jillian think about her team working all week? What do YOU think she thinks?

Quote of the week, from Jillian: “Is this a joke – are you like punking me? When is Ashton Kutcher going to drop from the ceiling?”

Jillian was ticked and Bob and Dolvett were gleeful.

While the red and blue teams slaved away in the gym, the white team served food, washed dishes and scrubbed floors. And plotted revenge against the other teams with fatty doggie bags that they’d take back to the ranch. Cookies and cheese fries and pastrami, anyone? Bwaa haa haa!

But the red and blue teams saw those leftovers and chucked them in the trash, even those cookies left on their pillows … or did they?

Jennifer’s school-age daughter has issues with her weight and Dolvett is taking it upon himself to help her succeed. They Skyped in and set her on a course for a healthier life.

Weigh-in and elimination: The red and blue teams feel like they have an advantage over the white team but the white team didn’t spend their days kicking back eating cookies, as we saw. How’d they do?


  • Hap: 11 (guess he didn’t eat those cookies)
  • Chelsea: 4
  • Matt: 9
  • Bobby: 3


  • David: 5
  • Tanya: 4
  • Jennifer: 7
  • Rachel: 7


  • Jay: 6
  • Marie: 6
  • Tumi: 9

So it turns out you can work a full-time job and get in enough exercise to make a big dent on the scale, huh? The white team won the weigh-in and the blue team lost. Bobby fell below the red line and was eliminated.

“This journey has really helped me find who I am as a person,” Bobby said. “Bobby’s a strong person, Bobby’s a smart person – I know these things now, and those are things I didn’t know until I started ‘Biggest Loser.’ “

Next week: The teams are dissolved and it’s down to singles – and what does “fall finale” mean? Are we on Christmas break?
