The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles” got the surprise of their lives when it was revealed to them that there will be no gym inside the Biggest Loser camp – a first in the history of the global TV franchise.The 10 official pairs of “
“We Filipinos will prove to the whole world that we can exercise and lose weight without using expensive gym equipment. This is your challenge,” said host Iza Calzado to the pairs.
The pairs then endured their first strenuous “gym” training in the camp's open field under fitness coaches Jim and Toni Saret and went through their first major challenge given by challenge masters Matteo Guidicelli and Robi Domingo – each pair must drag a jeepney toward a finish line 400 meters away.
Contestant Jepoy, meanwhile, was excluded from the first challenge following the departure of his partner Tristan, who temporarily left the competition to visit his family in the United States and mourn the death of his father-in-law.
While Tristan was allowed to leave the camp, he will only be admitted back if he continues to slim down while he is away and if he returns just in time for the show’s first competitive weigh-in, which happens in two weeks. Another consequence that can make or break the pair is that when Tristan and Jepoy fall below the yellow line during the weigh-in, they will get automatically eliminated from the competition without deliberation.
Will Tristan be able to watch his weight outside the camp? How will Jepoy deal with the pressure of losing weight now that he is alone?
