'The Biggest Loser': Just when we thought we had gotten rid of Melissa ...

The Biggest Loser
Oh brother. She's back.

Actually, they're all back.

Melissa and the rest of the eliminated contestants from this season's "The Biggest Loser" will all have a chance to battle their way back onto the ranch Tuesday night. Wanna make any predictions as to who that might be? My first thought was Sherry -- she looked downright skinny in the "Where are they now?" segment after she was eliminated. But then I remembered the sheer determination of the blue team: Cherita, a cancer conqueror,  and her spitfire of a daughter, Victoria. But then ... if you just consider it from a numbers perspective, it's gotta be either James or John, right? (More important: Does this mean we have to wait one more week for makeovers?)

One thing is certain: You'd better have your Kleenex handy. This episode includes an appearance by a man, Wayne, who weighed 674 pounds and, after a near-death experience, used "The Biggest Loser" as his inspiration to lose nearly 400 pounds. As an NBC news release notes, that means he lost twice as much weight on his own as any contestant in the series' history.
