The Biggest Loser

This week, the contestants return to their hometowns to visit family and friends. But with those happy reunions comes the challenge of continuing to eat right and exercise. After arriving home, the players also get a surprise – a gift crate with a stationary bicycle and a DVD explaining the at-home temptation and challenge that awaits them. Each contestant will ride the length of a full marathon (26.2 miles) on their new stationary bike – but they are also provided with a temptation in the form of 48 mini-cupcakes. For every cupcake a contestant may choose to eat, they can apply five minutes to the final ride time of any other player during the bike challenge. Later, the weigh-in back at the ranch reveals how they all did at home before another contestant is eliminated and sent home for good.
