“I told everyone last week that I was going to prove that I could work hard and that I was supposed to be here,” Holmstead said. “And that’s what I’ve done. I can’t wait to get on the scale.”
He lost 13 pounds this week, the most of anyone on his team, putting his weight from 386 pounds to 373 pounds and a loss of 3.37 percent. He came to the show at 403 pounds and lost 17 pounds the first week.
Abarca lost 2 pounds, putting her at 236, down from 238, and 0.84 percent. “This, to me, is classic week two,” Michaels said.
Winfield lost 4 pounds, putting her at 242 from 246 and a 1.63 percent weight loss.
Both women lost the least on their teams. Abarca had to say goodbye.
Each trainer has a trainer save this season, and Michaels used hers last week to save 29-year-old Craig Arrington.
The eliminated contestants are eligible for an at-home prize of $100,000 for who loses the most after leaving the show.
Also during Tuesday’s episode, “American Idol” winner Ruben Studdard, 35, of Birmingham, Ala., was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
His starting weight was 462 pounds and he has lost 31 pounds while on the show, including 10 pounds on the second week.
“The Biggest Loser: Second Chances” airs Tuesday evenings on NBC.
