Season 17 Episode 2
"Taste Test/Keep on Truckin' "
Food is the temptation of the week. Will it leave a bad taste in their mouths?
This week's temptation is food. In the first challenge, the players must rely on their newfound nutritional knowledge to answer trivia questions about some of their favorite dishes. The team that answers correctly gets to choose an opposing team member to eat the unhealthy food. With a score of 4 to 1, Team Dolvett wins and gets to choose one player to sit out at the weigh-in.
The players meet Dr. Huizenga in an autopsy room for a big wake-up call.
Back at the ranch, since Team Dolvett won the challenge, they decide to make Colby sit out the first weigh-in. Despite the advantage, Team Dolvett loses with only 1.85% weight lost compared to Team Jen's 2.09%. Jacky and Whitney fall below the line, and Team Dolvett votes Whitney off the ranch.
Team Dolvett feels frustrated they're not gelling together. They meet for a heart-to-heart to work out their differences.
In the next challenge, the players must pull three food trucks over 600 feet. Team Jen finally conquers their first challenge, winning a healthy cooking lesson with celebrity chef Lorena Garcia. Team Dolvett's losing penalty is lunch from a food truck, which Richard indulges in.
Brand new to The Biggest Loser, the players compete in a Last-Chance Challenge - a team-rowing relay. Team Jen is the first to row 2,000 meters, winning a two-pound advantage at the weigh-in.
On the scales, Team Dolvett wins their first weigh-in with 2.73% weight lost, and Team Jen loses 2.48% - more than last time, but not enough to clinch the win. Luis and Hope fall below the line, and Team Jen votes Colby's wife, Hope, off the ranch, breaking Colby's heart.
