Days of Our Lives star Alison Sweeney is the host of The Biggest Loser.
Here are parts of her blog about it, courtesy of the official NBC website...
Yikes! This was such a busy week!!! First the temptation started the week off with some major drama. After explaining to everyone that they would have to spend time alone in a room with all that food, with one person winning a 3 lb pass at the next weigh-in, they were also told there was no strategizing amongst teammates.
As people came out from the room, there was a lot of trash talk – some people saying they didn’t eat anything and others claiming the crew will have to restock the room before the next person goes.
Meanwhile, the contestants who hadn’t gone yet, weren’t supposed to be strategizing, they were only allowed to talk to me! Ha – so we talked about movies (one of my favorite go-to conversations), we quoted our favorite lines from movies, and Nicole told me that she was a long time Days fan. She asked me about the show, and what was happening right now.
I gave her a brief synopsis and soon everyone was in on it – even Ryan and Neil had questions about the show and how it works etc. It was really my first chance to sit and get to know everyone better.The weigh-in was a huge relief to the Red Team - not just did they avoid elimination, but they WON the weigh-in. It was definitely a boost for them. But the Blue team was completely caught off guard and unhappy about their first elimination.
I was so sad to say ‘good-bye’ to Jerry. He has such a great, outgoing personality. And I think everyone on Campus was motivated by how hard he worked to lose weight. The Blue team commented that they all felt he had the strength, mentally and physically to continue on his own at home, which was what made their decision.
But it was still hard to see him leave.
