TONIGHT was all about girl power as a trio of women earned three coveted spots back into The Biggest Loser.
Eliminated Queenslanders Rebekah Gilchrist and Brenda Hunt and Tasmania's Lydia Hantke are now officially back in the running for the reality weight-loss competition's grand prize.
It has been a massive week at Camp Biggest Loser with the eliminated contestants battling for a spot back in the competition.
Once Shannan Ponton revealed the secret team he had been training, it was survival of the fittest.
They worked hard to stay in the competition and win one of five weigh-in passes which gave them the opportunity to prove themselves and fight their way to a second chance.
Lovebirds Lisa Ritherdon and Simon Hurley were the first to win weigh-in passes, followed by Hunt and Gilchrist.
Unfortunately the remaining Hamish Elliott, Alex Zorzi and Ryan Preuss, had to pack their bags and leave Camp Biggest Loser.
With the final five having immunity for the week, tonight's weigh-in was all about seeing which of the five eliminated contestants would re-join the competition.
The two with the highest weight loss - Hantke at 5.1kgs and Hunt with 6.8kgs - were automatically brought back in the game.
Unfortunately for Ritherdon, Hurley and Gilchrist that saw them fell below the yellow line.
Rather than elimination, contestants had to place one vote for salvation to keep one person in the game.
Alliances and strategies shone through as Gilchrist was voted back into the competition.
"I'm really excited to have this opportunity to be back into the game and the chance to be the Biggest Loser," she said.
Ponton was clearly impressed by the hard work Gilchrist had put in during training.
"I thought she was a princess when she first started, but she really proved me wrong and showed that she's a fighter," he said.
It was a tearful goodbye for 42-year-old Ritherdon.
"I came into The Biggest Loser house just hoping to survive the first week," she said.
"Now I'm walking away fitter, stronger, happier and with a wonderful friend. Simon is definitely someone I could spend the rest of my life with."
Hurley, who lost a whopping 41.4kgs, also shared his feelings about being on The Biggest Loser.
"I didn't think I'd walk out of here with a potential soul mate," he said.
"It was the last thing on my mind. My main focus was the promise that I made to my family that I wouldn't let them down. So to come out of the end of this with a magnificent bonus (Lisa), how can you not be happy?"
Tomorrow night, one contestant admits to binge eating and explains that they're homesick. Then, in the pool-side contest, the contestants must retrieve weights from one end of the pool to the other to win the power to send someone home until the next weigh-in.
The Biggest Loser airs Sundays at 6.30pm and Mondays to Wednesdays at 7pm on Ten.
