Romance on 'The Biggest Loser'Can two people find love on a reality weight-loss show? That's what happens on 'The Biggest Loser' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC). Contestant Sam loses the least amount of weight, and is kicked off the show, but finds perhaps the greatest prize of all.

And we got to see Melissa again. Lance's wife has to be one of the most controversial figures of this entire season. Not to let her original stint stand, she was back in über-competitive mode again this week when Alison revealed that there was a marathon of a challenge for the contestants while they were at home.
