The Biggest Loser 3, Episode 8: Never Show Up a TrainerPage 3
View Printable version of this article
Jaron goes to tell Adrian of this decision, but she has her own concerns. She feels the workouts are not as aggressive as she wants, and are not on a schedule that she knows works for her. In an aside Jaron tells us he sees her as a regimented person who gets stuck in her routines.
Trainer Kim strides into the kitchen and immediately confronts Adrian with, “Rumor has it you’re going anti-trainer.” Yes, that ought to set the mood properly for a meaningful dialogue. Adrian tells Kim she wants to return to her own schedule because she feels exhausted all the time. Kim tells us, “Adrian is so set in her ways. She doesn’t know what she doesn’t know.”
Kim’s point is similar to Bob’s, that what Adrian is doing may be working now but it will probably not work forever. There’s a boredom factor, and Adrian needs to learn new ways so she can change things up. Kim accepts that Adrian will work out on her own schedule, but Kim states that she will not train her. It’s all or nothing. In a cameo, Kim preaches that Adrian is ignoring a lot of assembled knowledge and concludes, “She’s a grown adult; she can go and take a nap if she wants.”
Adrian is unsure what to do. As she and Jaron head out to meet the Red Team (less Heather, she must be napping) for a jog, she weepily says to Jaron, “This sucks. I was so excited last week, it felt good, and now it’s like you’re hated for your accomplishments. I don’t want to go home.” When they arrive, Adrian decides not to join in.
Kim thinks Adrian is “stupid” for not taking advantage of the opportunities to learn. She says, “It’s crazy to me, I don’t understand it.”
We’ve finally made our way to the ever-dreaded “Last Chance Workout.” Even Bob admits this workout is brutal. Adrian is nowhere to be seen. Heather tells us her opinion, that Adrian’s abandoning the team “is a very, very bad decision,” because she’ll have no allies in the game. Yeah, like Heather is ever going to cover Adrian’s back!
In the gym, Bob yells to his charges, “Erik deserves to stay here. Bobby deserves to stay here. Marty deserves to stay here. The rest can pack their bags and go home now.” Again the editing is funky, we can’t tell if the others are within earshot or not.
Meanwhile, Adrian is off on a hillside by herself, crying. She pulls Kai aside to talk about the events of the day. It seems that after two hours of working out alone, Adrian found she needs her support system. She also complains of the heat and the differences in the workouts. Kai gives her a pep talk and it seems to really help Adrian.
So, Adrian meets with Kim and asks to be taken back. She confesses, “I lost perspective for a while.” Of course, Kim takes her back. Kim tells us she thinks the issue is Adrian is “fearful of working with a trainer, because she just doesn’t know what it’s like. She’s scared. That’s normal.”
Adrian reaffirms that her fear has nothing to do with Kim, and her true concern is still that changing her workout regimen could negatively affect her weight-loss results.
However, all is well for now and Kim takes her on a personal last-chance workout that is essentially a ninety-minute triathlon. Adrian is absorbing a lot of tips from Kim, which I think is what she is really looking for.
It’s evening again, and time for the weigh-ins. People seem especially nervous about this weigh-in. This week, the dreaded “Yellow Line” will define the one duo with the worst results. The two members of that duo will be up for elimination.
Numerical results in the following chart are listed in the order they stepped on the scale.
So the duo up for elimination is Bobby and Heather. Post weigh-in, a cameo from Heather confirms that her gain is intentional and this is indeed gameplay between her and Kai to eliminate the threat of Bobby. Caroline Rhea reminds the duos that they have only one vote per team.
Trainer Bob hears this news and asks Bobby if he’s quitting. Essentially, he is. Bob immediately suspects gameplay, and Bobby agrees. Bob tries to talk Bobby into fighting for his chance to stay, telling him to forget about the gameplay and concentrate on the task at hand.
Meanwhile, Kim hears the numbers from her group and is surprised by Heather’s result. Heather was pretty reluctant to admit to Kim that her weight went up and lamely blames it on not jogging enough.
Heather knows she’s taking a risk in the next vote. On the plus side, should Heather survive she will be in a great position next week<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
