THE BIGGEST LOSER COUPLES PREMIERE UPDATEhttp://tvgrapevine.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=112&Itemid=50
Alison greets the new contestants and tells them that things are a little different this time. She tells them there are nine teams of couples, but she has one more team to introduce to them. They were selected from the Biggest Loser Online Club and the difference is they don't have the bond the others have, they don't even know each other. Then she introduces Brittney and Bernie. They have just met for the first time.
Alison then informs them it is time for their first challenge. They will be playing for Bob and Jillian! The challenge is to race to the top of a hill and all the way back. They must follow a trail of blue and black flags, at the top there will be a Biggest Loser flag. Both team members must touch the flag, race all the way back, and then both team members must get in line behind the trainer that they choose. The catch, each trainer can only train five teams. So once a trainer has five teams behind them, they will have to take the other trainer. The First Challenge
First one up the hill is Mark and Jay, followed by Bernie and Brittney. First back to the campus is Mark & Jay and they chose Jillian. Bette Sue is so exhausted she has to crawl up the hill.

Lynn & Jennifer get Bob. Bette Sue & Ali arrive and are on Bob's team. Beginning Weigh-In

Brittney and Bernie (Blue) cross second, with Bernie retching. Maggie & Jen (Purple) cross the finish line last. The Last Chance Workout
Jennifer complains that her father, Lynn, (Green Team) would not come to the gym for a cardio workout. Lynn doesn't want to workout because he has blisters on his 60-year old feet. Jennifer has a good cry in the gym, while her father is sleeping. Lynn gets up early and went to the gym to workout on the treadmill.
Bernie had to go to the hospital because he was in a daze, unable to keep food down. Tests were run and he was able to return after spending the night in the hospital. He is worried about what kind of a teammate he is to Brittney. Bob greets Bernie when he returns to the gym and tells hem he will keep it light. Bernie sits out on the last chance workout.The Weigh-In
