A show which has inspired the nation, 'The Biggest Loser', is taking off more pounds from the eight remaining couples.
Pounds have been shed, tears have been dropped, "The Biggest Loser" is continuing its body mass index shredding tonight (February 3). After the Orange Team was sent home last week, the competition is still open for eight other contestants which progress are updated through the new commercial ad released by NBC.
More than 700 pounds in total have been lost in the second "couples" edition. Tara, a former plus size model said, "I'm doing it. I'm finally feeling like I'm alive." The heaviest woman, Carla, had lost 12 pounds or three per cent of her body mass index in the first week and has further shed 8 pounds.
Daniel and David were voted off last week in a close call against Mike and Ron. The remaining contestants are sisters Mandi and Aubrey, mother-daughter Kristin and Cathy, best friends Joelle and Carla, mother-daughter Helen and Shannon, cousins Blaine and Dane, former models Tara and Laura as well as cousins Filipe and Sione.
