Last night on The Biggest Loser: The contestants spend a final week on the ranch, Suze Orman makes a guest appearance, and Season 8's Final Four are finally revealed. Here's a quick recap...
In the contestants final week at the ranch, personal finance expert Suze Orman paid a visit to the ranch. At first I was confused as to why she would be on the show, but she ended up sharing some important (and surprising!) statistics about obesity and finance:
- In one year, obese employees earn $7,000 less than non-obese employees.
- A family of four can save $8,760 a year if they swap one meal in a restaurant for one meal at home every day.
- Americans spend $4.4 billion a year on gastric bypass surgery; each year, 220,000 Americans get the $20,000 surgery.
- An adult who goes from being obese to their ideal weight will save $1 million over 40 years.
I find the monetary figures in these statistics to be shocking high...would you agree? I had no idea obesity was costing so much money!
Back to the show: The challenge this week was a football challenge, in which the contestants had to race each other down a football field carrying the weight they've lost on their backs. Allen was the first to finish, winning two tickets to the Pro Bowl and $5,000 worth of sporting equipment to donate to his daughters school.
Allen may have been the winner in the challenge, but his luck ran out by the end of the show. Liz and Allen fell below the yellow line; Amanda and Danny voted to eliminate Allen, which means that Final Four are: Liz, Rudy, Amanda, and Danny.
Now that Allen's gone, I don't know who I'm going to root for!
