Synopsis


Amanda is feeling alone on the ranch now that Rebecca has been voted off. The rest of the players all stand by their decision to eliminate Rebecca, because they felt she was too much of a game player. Amanda realizes she can only count on herself to make it to the finale.

The players all meet with Ali in the kitchen, where she introduces them to a surprise guest, financial advisor Suze Orman. Suze is there to explain the connection between wealth and health. Suze wants the players to understand that obesity is a very expensive disease and it's important to make the connection.

The players had their first pop-challenge and Suze is there to help out. Each player gets on their treadmill and as they are walking, they are given a financial trivia question. If they get the question right, they get $1,000 deposited in an investment account. If they get the answer wrong, their treadmill goes up a speed. The players each walk out with $3,000 and $4,000 checks when the pop-challenge is done.

Bob walks into the gym and finds the final five players working out. He reminds the players that it is their last week on campus and he wants to talk to them about their plans once they get home.

Amanda and Bob are able to have a one-on-one conversation about what life will be like once she returns home. She promises Bob that she will not let him down and she'll always value their friendship. Bob describes to Amanda that his main goal on the ranch is to teach her to love herself, first and foremost. She gives Bob a note she wrote to thank him for all of his support.

Liz and Danny find some alone time to talk about still being on the ranch. They find it hard to believe they are the last team that is really standing together and they share a bond that other players on the ranch cannot experience. Liz credits Danny with teaching her how to trust, again.

The players head to the football field. Ali tells them their latest challenge has them carrying the weight they've lost and running 100 yards back and forth while dropping off the pounds they lost for each week, for a total of ten trips. The winner of the challenge wins a vacation package for two to Florida to watch 2010's NFL Pro Bowl.

Before the challenge can begin, NFL player and 11-time Pro Bowl participant Rod Woodson shows up to give the players some encouraging words. Rod also tells the players that not only are they playing for the Pro Bowl tickets but also NFL Play 60, and The Biggest Loser show will donate $5,000 worth of gym equipment to a school of the winner's choice.

In the end, Allen wins the challenge. But each player has the honor of completing the challenge and realizing how much weight they've lost while being on the ranch. Allen is happy to win the tickets and pleased to be able to donate the gym equipment to his daughter's school.

The players all find some quiet time back on the ranch and Danny brings out his guitar and tells them he wrote a song about The Biggest Loser experience. Each player reflects on what they have learned on the ranch. The players also know they have a second chance at life and they can't wait to start living it.

The players are ready for their last-chance workout. Danny knows he has to push himself to his limits in the gym, because he and Rudy are the biggest threats in the house. Bob reminds the two guys that he wants them to work out just as hard when they go home.

As the trainers are pushing each player in the gym, Jillian stops by to check on Liz. She asks Liz what is the fastest she has ran on the treadmill and Liz tells her level six. Jillian knows Liz can do more than that and Liz is so surprised with herself when she runs at a level nine speed that Jillian set up for her.

The final five players know how important this week's weigh-in is, especially because the four players who survive this week will be going to the finals. Ali reveals that the winner of this week's weigh-in will receive a visit to their home from chef Curtis Stone, so he can teach their whole family how to cook healthy recipes.

Rudy loses 12 pounds at the weigh-in, putting him below the 300s. Rudy feels incredible and already feels like a winner because he's lost the most weight on campus of any player in 11 weeks. Meanwhile, Danny breaks a record with losing 16 pounds because he's the only player to have lost weight in the double-digit numbers seven weeks in a row.

Danny wins the weigh-in for the last time before the finale. But, it's Liz and Allen who fall below the yellow line are now up for elimination. After the votes are in, it's Allen who is eliminated. He admits he's looking forward to going home and being with his family and community.
