Talk about drama! Tonight's show was full of it. If you've watched any of The Biggest Loser-Season 7, you know that Joelle was the show's 'problem child'.
Well, no more. Joelle Gwynn was sent home tonight. Unfortunately, her teammate (and ex-best friend), Carla Triplett, shared her teammate's misfortune and she sure didn't deserve it.
Carla lost an impressive 9 pounds, while Joelle lost no weight at all. ZERO! It's sad because Carla had to pay the price for Joelle's lack of effort.
The silver team along with the brown team fell below the yellow line tonight. It was up to the rest of the players to vote which team to send home.
Everyone had the impression that Joelle didn't really want to be on the ranch. She always claimed she was trying hard but nobody bought it.
Out of the five weeks she was on the ranch, Joelle only showed true effort one week - and it was that week she lost a significant amount of weight. After last week, I thought Joelle had turned the tide, but this week she was back to the same old Joelle.
This season's Biggest Loser has been interesting. Tonight was the fifth episode. Following is the order of the eliminations: first the white team was sent home, then the red team, followed by the orange team, and now the silver team.
Carla was The Biggest Loser's heaviest female to ever compete. She started out at 379 pounds. The first week on the show, she and eight other contestants were sent home. Over the last four weeks at home, Carla lost 20 pounds.
It's very impressive to me that Carla lost 40 pounds in five weeks, with four of those weeks being at home.
Since leaving the ranch, Carla has lost 47 more pounds for a total of 87 pounds!
On the other hand, Joelle has only lost 57 pounds. That tells you all you need to know.
