"THE BIGGEST LOSER 8"
10/27/2009 (08:00PM - 10:00PM) (Tuesday) : BASEBALL GREAT DEREK JETER AND POPULAR CHEF CURTIS STONE GUEST STAR -- It's an intense week on "The Biggest Loser" when the contestants learn from host Alison Sweeney that they will each face off against a player from the opposing team at weigh-in. The winner of the pop challenge gains considerable control by getting to choose who faces off against whom. Then New York Yankee and four-time World Series champ Derek Jeter gives the players a pep talk about the importance of teamwork before they embark on a wild baseball challenge. The challenge winner then gets a delicious and healthy Mediterranean meal prepared by acclaimed chef Curtis Stone. Later, one player breaks a "Biggest Loser" record at weigh-in, and then the contestants say goodbye to one of their own in the most emotional elimination so far of this season. Trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels also star.
