PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Alan Choachuy, the leader of the former Blue Team, was ousted from The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition after receiving five votes in last Monday's elimination ceremony that pitted him against Art, the leader of the former Red Team.
"Art and Alan fell below the yellow line during the weigh-in after losing the least percentage of weight. They could have both been saved if Ryan and Eboy, the bets of the original Bigating Pinoys, beat wild cards Andy and Leigh in the weigh-in.
"Ryan and Eboy only had an average weight loss of 3.02% compared to 3.31% weight loss of Andy and Leigh. Ryan, who earned a five pound advantage in the Temptation challenge, still emerged a winner as the Biggest Loser of the Week with a weight loss of 4.72%.
"Alan, showing no tears, frustration, or anger, gave the program's most graceful exit. He, however, admitted that it was hard for him to part with his co-contestants as they have become a family inside.
"I miss first, Larry, because we always did things together like training and cooking. Art, because we were the leaders of our teams and we always motivated each other. I also miss Angela, she is super sweet and I feel like she is my younger sister," he shared.
"For Angela who joined the show to become fit to start a family, Alan said he hopes that she and her husband will soon experience what he and wife Caroline felt when they had their first baby.
"Alan is bent on continuing his journey to a healthy and fit lifestyle. In fact, he intends to join fun runs and hopes to eventually run a half marathon. He said the lessons he learned inside the camp has kept him motivated.
"I learned that it's never too late to make a change, and before you want to change other people, you should look yourself in the mirror. Start with you and be a role model," he said.
"This week, Angela, Andy, Art, Eboy, Hazel, Larry, Leigh, Raffy, Ryan, and Winwin will have to do a variety of labor, from an ice plant to a poultry farm and a car repair shop, in order to provide food for them at the camp. Find out how to cook a nutritious meal that will get them by while they have no food supplies from resident nutritionist Nadine Tengco.
"Also watch for the fashion show featuring newly made over bigating Pinoy, and the story behind the brewing tension between Eboy and the other contestants. Catch all these in another life-changing week in The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition, after Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida."
