Twelve eliminated contestants from the “Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” went back to the camp in last night”s epsiode (Sep 6), following the elimination of Ryan, a twist that shocked the four remaining contestants.
But not all were lucky as two of them, Winwin and Andy, were eliminated immediately for gaining weight.
Top four contestants Angela, Art, Larry, and Raffy will battle the ex-cons in a series of challenges before the next weigh-in. If the top four win, they get to send home an ex-con. Otherwise, all ex-cons remain.
The latest turn of events in the Biggest Loser camp is giving the eliminated contestants a second chance to become the first Pinoy Biggest Loser.
“My experience at the BL Camp made me realize that the best things in life are not for free. You have to work hard for it,” said 31-year old Ryan Razon of Pampanga.
While Ryan may have been booted out of the camp, he earned the distinction of being the first Pinoy Biggest Loser contestant to shed off more than 100 pounds.
At the start of the show, Ryan weighed 293 pounds. When he left, his weight stood at 189 pounds or a total loss of 104 pounds.
Wild card contestant Leigh also bid the camp goodbye last Friday feeling lighter and happier. She lost a total of 46 pounds from the time she entered the contest and left weighing only 184 pounds.
“My experience inside the BL camp has been perhaps the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced. I came in thinking only my body will be challenged. I never expected it to be emotionally and mentally challenging at the same time. The experience was priceless,” she said.
Will Ryan and Leigh fare better this time around? Find out as they join Alan, Destiny, Eboy, Edden, Eric, Hazel, JM, and Joy in staging a big comeback.
