'The Biggest Loser': Contestants Stage Walk-Off; Mark And Buddy Quit? (VIDEO)

In an unprecedented play for power, the final five contestants on "The Biggest Loser" (Tue., 8 p.m. ET on NBC) got wind of a twist that would allow the eliminated contestants a chance to get back in the game, and consequently decided they were going to collectively quit the show.

Production shut down as Alison Sweeney brought in a lawyer to remind contestants that this twist had been in their contract all along; not to mention that this sort of thing happens almost every season on the show.

The contestants were left to think over their choices, and both Mark and Buddy decided to leave the show in protest. Suddenly the final three was established and it was the brother/sister pair of Jeremy and Conda joining Kim. Because of this, the final weigh-in had a red line, making that shot at the finale all about the numbers.

They all brought big numbers -- perhaps because of the unspecified length of time production was shut down? -- but it came down to Jeremy and Conda, with Jeremy falling short. Next week, all the eliminated contestants who didn't quit fight for their chance to join Kim and Conda in the finale.
