It's week four and "The Biggest Loser" contestants are nervous when host Alison Sweeney and the trainers gather the teams together to tell them there is a surprise this week. "Three people are leaving," says Sweeney. Wait ... what?
Of course the teams are relieved to find out she means the trainers. Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper, and Dolvett Quince are traveling to the hometowns of this season's "Biggest Loser" kids -- Sunny, Biingo, and Lindsay.
"So you guys will be on the ranch all alone all week long," Alison says. The teams and the trainers look scared out of their minds.
Jillian is worried because "there's nobody to crack the whip when the trainers are gone," but she realizes the kids they're going to see are on their own in the real world too, and need someone to check in on them.
The trainers meet with their teams to lay out workout strategies for while they're on their own.
