In last week's premiere of The Biggest Loser (7 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5), Utah Hap Holmstead lost 17 pounds, which is great. He also had to sweat out the possibility of being eliminated, which was not so great.
This week, Holmtstead and the other contestants learn that only one person's weight on each of the three teams will count at this week's weigh-in. And they won't know who it is beforehand - it will be determined by a roll of the die.
It's all part of the game.
