A Mud Fight on 'The Biggest Loser'Losing weight is no fun. And it's especially no fun when you're being yelled at by semi-sadistic trainers in front of a national TV audience. And so, on the latest episode of 'The Biggest Loser' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC), the contestants took revenge on hosts Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels -- by throwing them into the mud.

Watch the video after the jump.

'The Biggest Loser' Season 9 Episode 1 'Week One' Recap

The Biggest Loser 9, John and James CrutchfieldTo start the new season, the 11 teams were told that they would have to participate in their first weigh-ins at home, in public, in front of their friends and families.

Upon their arrival at the Ranch, the first challenge began. Teams had to pedal a combined 26.2 miles (the length of a marathon) on stationary bicycles. The last two teams to finish would not even make the journey to the house, and were told that they would be going home. It was Yellow and Blue, but they learned they weren't through yet. They had 30 days at home, and then they would face off against one another back on campus. The team with the highest percentage of weight loss would be allowed back in the game.

At the first weigh-in, it was the self-proclaimed "half-ton twins" who slipped below the yellow line. While both tried to sacrifice themselves for the other, it was James' knee injury that was considered, and he went home.

'The Biggest Loser' (8PM, NBC) season 9 premiere
We love that NBC kicks off a new season right after the new year begins, which always gives us another source of inspiration as we all plot our own healthy resolutions. This season might prove to be even more motivational, as the theme is families. The 11 teams competing to win the big cash prize -- and, more importantly, to change, and maybe save, their lives -- are made up of family members. The ninth season also includes the show's heaviest contestant to date (and the first one to start the season weighing more than 500 pounds), as 526-pound Michael Ventrella, a 31-year-old disc jockey from Chicago, will compete with his 51-year-old travel agent mom, Maria.

Sizing up the final four on The Biggest Loser: Couples

Ron MorelliNext week is the season finale of this run of The Biggest Loser. But before we can get there, they had to perform the hardest task of their entire lives; a full 26.2 mile marathon. All this while spending 30 days at home. But this isn't the going home before the finale trip. This 30 days culminated in another weigh in before the finale. And the revelation that only three of the final four would be competing for the quarter of a million dollars.

I've really found myself enjoying the gameplay this season, especially the Ronfather's maneuvering to keep his son Mike in the game. The fact that he somehow managed to keep himself in the game to this point is equally astonishing. In fact, considering his extensive injuries and the sheer number of times he's fallen below the yellow line, I think we need to give him credit for being one of the shrewdest players in the game. But let's look at all four of our finalists.
