The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 8


The Biggest Loser Season 16 episode 8 airs Thursday, October 30th 2014 on NBC at 8 pm.

Episode Synopsis: The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 8- It’s eight weeks in to the competition, and the remaining contestants have already lost almost 700 lbs. But this week it might prove harder to stay on course when a challenge involving giant treadmills over water gives the winning team the opportunity to assign penalties to the two losing teams. One team is tasked with cleaning duties that must be finished before they can access their trainer and the gym, while the other team is sent without their trainer to a city full of temptations – Las Vegas. Meanwhile, at Comeback Canyon, trainer Bob Harper tries to convince his two contestants to make their health a priority rather than always taking care of others first. Then the player who falls below the red line at the ranch weigh-in and feels unprepared to return home is thrilled to get a second chance at Comeback Canyon, while the weigh-in there sends another contestant home for good.

Show Synopsis: Twenty former athletes, including NFL players and Olympic gold medalists, will aim to change their lives on the upcoming season of NBC’s hit franchise “The Biggest Loser: Glory Days,” premiering Thursday, September 11 at 8/7c.

The contestants will work with new trainers Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom, as well as veteran trainers Dolvett Quince and Bob Harper. Alison Sweeney will return as host.

The contestants are led by former NFL players Scott Mitchell (12 seasons in the NFL) and Damien Woody (two-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots), as well as Olympic gold medalist and former professional tennis star Zina Garrison. Other contestants striving for weight loss include former WNBA standout Vanessa Hayden, three-time Olympic gold medal softball player Lori Harrigan-Mack, and a mix of former college and high school sports standouts.

Season 16 of “The Biggest Loser” will also feature trainer Bob Harper in an exciting new role, giving contestants a second chance at life on the show. Just when the eliminated contestant each week thinks they are headed home, they will actually be whisked away to a secret location called “Comeback Canyon.” There, they will be trained by Harper, competing at a separate secret weekly weigh-in for the chance to return to the competition and a shot at “The Biggest Loser” title and $250,000 grand prize.
