It’s week three at The Biggest Loser, and we started with the show’s first-ever auction.
It was so much fun to be the auctioneer for the day, particularly when the White Team thought they’d spent $180 on a mystery box filled with sugar and flour, only for me to surprise them with the news that it could be traded for any piece of already-purchased equipment. Talk about a dramatic shift in mood within the teams!
Thankfully, I said goodbye to the contestants before they had to explain what equipment they could work out with to their trainers.
They’re going to kill me, but I’ve got to say that it was entertaining to watch the trainers’ reactions with you.
