It’s “Surfs Up!” on “The Biggest Loser” tonight as the remaining contestants hit the beaches of Hawaii with inspirational “Soul Surfer” Bethany Hamilton! It’s week 12 and the group is given a workout in the waves as they learn to ride a surfboard courtesy of the professional surfer, Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm to a shark attack at the age of thirteen. Instead of giving up, she fought through pain and recovered enough to get back on a board one month following the accident and her courage is the inspirational message behind the movie “Soul Surfer.” Trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince hope she will be able to inspire a “can-do” attitude in the contestants as they face this week’s “No Excuses” excuse.
Kim Neilson gets a little chocked up when she thinks about where she is as to where she came from just a couple months ago and having been a professional wrestler, it must have been difficult to acknowledge how indulgence got the best of you and to fight back as she has to get to the point where she is surfing in Hawaii beside Bethany Hamilton, another professional female!
Find out more about what the challenge is this week as well as who failed to make the cut above the yellow line and who was voted off of “The Biggest Loser” tonight on NBC beginning at 8/7c. It should prove to be a lesson in courage!
