The Blue Team is down to five members after letting go of Edden Cruz in another dramatic elimination ceremony on “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” yesterday (June 27).
The 35-year old market vendor from Cebu followed teammate JM Oloris and Red Team’s Destiny Duarte outside the Biggest Loser camp after getting the most votes from her teammates.
Trainer Jim Saret’s team absorbed its second straight loss in the weighing scales after failing to capitalize on a reward they got in last week’s challenge. The Blue Team chose a member of the Red Team to sit out during the weigh-in and not be able to contribute to the total weight loss of their group.
They chose Eboy and though his 14 lbs. weight loss wasn’t credited to his team, the Red Team still delivered 2.42 percent total weight loss, higher than Blue Team’s 2.37 percent.
Adding fuel to the fire was Eboy being proclaimed the Biggest Loser of the week after shedding 3.25 percent of his previous weight, the highest among all contestants this week.
Jim only had good words for Edden, who drew inspiration from her children during her stint in the show.
“She’s a genuinely beautiful person both inside and out—a loving, caring and selfless wife and mother that will do anything and everything for her family,” he said.
Meanwhile, another shocking twist has rocked the world of the contestants and the trainers, and even the show’s viewers. Sharon Cuneta announced yesterday (June 27) that Jim and Chinggay Andrada will swap teams this week.
Jim said that while he felt he wasn’t done yet in helping his team complete its journey, he is also excited to test and push the Red Team players to a different level.
Chinggay, on the other hand, tearfully said she isn’t ready to leave Red Team just when its members could fully appreciate their hard work and determination.
She said, “I’m heartbroken, lost, and having a hard time coping with the change. This shall pass and make all of us stronger.”
After their workouts with their new trainers, the Red Team and Blue Team will face-off again in a challenge with game master Derek Ramsay that will require strategy, teamwork, will, and determination. Find out which team will get this week’s reward and which contestant will fall in the temptation challenge as they head to another nail-biting weigh-in on Friday (July 1).
