It’s an exciting week on “The Biggest Loser” when the nine remaining contestants head to Washington D.C. for an adventure that will take them from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to the White House kitchen garden on a special episode airing Tuesday, November 3 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC.
After arriving in the nation’s capitol, the players learn from host Alison Sweeney that they’ll now be competing as individuals rather than by teams. And their first challenge is a big one- to race around the National Mall and try and bring as many people as possible back to the Washington monument for a public workout with trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels, for the biggest workout in Biggest Loser history!
While in D.C., the trainers and contestants also meet with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (New York) and Senator Robert Casey (Pennsylvania) to talk about the need for better health and nutrition education, especially in schools. Then the players engage in a wild four-part competition involving iconic D.C. landmarks before an unforgettable visit to the White House. There, along with assistant White House chef Sam Kass, they pick vegetables from the White House kitchen garden and then head inside to the kitchen to join White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford in preparing a healthy and delicious salad. Then at week’s end, the contestants weigh in by the steps of the Lincoln Memorial before another elimination round sends a contestant home for an emotional reunion with their family.
