Will Carrollton’s Alex Reid squeak by again tonight on Biggest Loser?
The trainers have said she doesn't work hard enough.
It’s been a topsy-turvy time for Alex Reid, a 24-year-old Carrollton resident, on the current season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser.
She toiled in invisibility for the first several episodes, finally got some screen time when she had a bit of a breakdown, and has spent the next several episodes battling the trainers’ perception that she has a bad attitude in the gym and doesn’t work as hard as she should. She has consistently had lower weight-loss numbers than most of the other competitors, and in fact has lost the least weight, percentage-wise, among all the other remaining competitors.
The breakdown of the final six:
Gina: Starting weight 245, current weight 180. 26.5% lost
Joe: Starting weight 364, current weight 273. 25% lost
Danni: Starting weight 258, current weight 194. 24.8% lost
Jeff: Starting weight 388, current weight 308. 20.6% lost
Jackson: Starting weight 328, current weight 261. 20.4% lost
Alex: Starting weight 240, current weight 195. 18.8% lost
So the obvious question this week is, will Alex get it together and stay around for another episode? The competition is getting pretty fierce. I don’t think Alex can afford another subpar week in the gym. In last week’s episode, Alex’s work in the gym frustrated super-trainer Jillian Michaels to no end, so Jillian set out on a mission to get to the bottom of it. Check out the therapy session in the video below.
Tune in to tonight’s episode to see if Alex can make it through another week on the Biggest Loser ranch.
