'The Biggest Loser': Who Are the Final Three?

'The Biggest Loser' marathonLast night's 'The Biggest Loser' had a twist in its tail. As promoted all season, all of the eliminated contestants returned to face off against the Final Four in a marathon. The winner of this race automatically earned a spot in the Finals, no matter when they were sent home.

Not only did they have to run a marathon ... this time it was in the desert. But at least there were cash prizes on offer for the first five finishers to help assuage the post-marathon agony. So who came out on top and made it to the Finals? And what twist did the producers have in store for the Final Four? !!SPOILER ALERT!!

Ramon Medeiros, who recently said he now runs three to five miles a few days a week and lifts weights three days a week, finished first in the marathon, which means he automatically goes through to the finals.

The marathon Top Five and their cash prizes were: Ramon ($25,000), Courtney ($10,000), John ($7,500), Jessica ($5,000), and Patrick ($2,500).

That left the final four to face-off at the weigh-in, but they were in for a surprise when they got there. Instead of a yellow line, there was a red one running right through the middle. In past seasons, the third and fourth place finishers at this stage faced America's vote to see which one would join the top two in the Finals. This season, Ramon took that spot, so the bottom two were facing instant elimination.

John and Antone continued to dominate with their impressive at-home weight loss -- 29 lbs/9.8 percent and 30 lbs/9.29 percent respectively -- narrowly beating out Vinny (28 lbs/8.92 percent). Becky trailed in last with a 10-lbs (5.81 percent) weight loss.

During the weigh-in John threw down the gauntlet to Antone when he was on the scale. Antone responded by saying words don't mean much and he'll show what's what on the scale at the finale. Ramon, meanwhile, said he hopes the simmering feud between the other two will distract them so much that he'll be able to sneak in and take home the title.

So, the Final Three are: Ramon, John and Antone. Who do you want to win?

'The Biggest Loser' airs Tuesdays, 8PM ET on NBC.
