“The Biggest Loser” has slimmed down to the final three!
On Tuesday night’s episode, the 14 eliminated contestants returned to compete in a multi-part challenge, with the winner nabbing the third finalist spot. (Bringing them back was also a sweet opportunity to show off the players’ transformations since leaving the ranch.)
It was this element of the game — that they do every season, mind you — caused last week’s dramatic mutiny, when the remaining contestants protested the “twist,” claiming it wasn’t fair that people who were voted off were getting a chance to re-join the game with a shot at winning the whole thing. Mark and Buddy chose to quit the competition as a result.
But with the “Biggest Loser” title on the line, all of the eliminees battled it out for that spot in the finale, beginning with a weigh-in, then a 100-yard dash, a nutrition puzzle and finally an endurance challenge.

Ultimately, it came down to Jeremy, who’s lost an impressive 150 lbs. and was booted last week after a weigh-in shocker, and Mike, who went home in week 2 but shocked everyone when he returned to the ranch 114 lbs. lighter.
And the winner was … Jeremy! It was an exciting triumph, but in a way, it makes the whole contestant walk-off seem pointless now, since Jeremy was among the bitter bunch and was just eliminated last week. But Jeremy was hell-bent and determined to get back in the game and few could argue he doesn’t deserve a spot in the finals, so all seems right back at the ranch.
So there you have it: The Season 13 final three contestants heading to the finale are Kim, Conda and Jeremy.
“The Biggest Loser” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
