Live Big with Ali Vincent Episodes

Life is a Rollercoaster Ride

Ali Vincent takes her mom Bette-Sue on the ride -- or rather rides -- of a lifetime. The mother and daughter team make up for years of missed fun at amusement parks because of their size.
Ali and her mom head over to Universal Studios Hollywood to do something that Bette Sue hasn't done in over 30 years -- go on an amusement park ride.

Before Ali and her mom adopted a healthier lifestyle and lost weight, the two of them were forced to sit on the sidelines any time they went to an amusement park with family or friends because they were too big to fit on any of the rides. But today it's a whole different story. They ride Transformers, Jurassic Park, and Revenge of the Mummy.

After spending a few hours at the Universal Studios Hollywood amusement park, it's time for Ali and Bette Sue to eat lunch. They're headed over to the Saddle Ranch Chop House at Universal City Walk, but standing in the way is a long, intimidating set of stairs.

After a bit of fussing from Bette Sue, Ali persuades her mom to take the stairs instead of the escalator. Half way up, Bette Sue isn't too happy about taking this huge staircase, but Ali provides her mom with a little inspiration. As they look back down the stairs, they see the Sheraton Universal Hotel where Ali and her mom stayed when they tried out for The Biggest Loser.

Seeing how far they've both come since then and how much healthier and happier they are now, Bette Sue is motivated to reach the top of the staircase without taking the escalator.

When they finish eating the Live Big producers hit Ali and her mom with their first challenge -- ride the mechanical bull at Saddle Ranch. Whoever stays on the longest gets a reward!

First up is Bette Sue, who has some difficulty getting on the bull but manages to stay on for a complete bull ride. Now it's Ali's turn and Bette Sue may or may not have given the operator of the mechanical bull a small financial incentive to throw Ali off the bull.

After a short ride on the bull, Ali is thrown off much to the delight of her mom, and the winner of the mechanical bull challenge is Bette Sue! There is a bit of celebrating by Bette Sue and then the Live Big producers inform them that even though Ali lost, they both will receive the reward for completing the challenge -- a full body massage at the Exhale Mind Body Spa in the Loews Hollywood Hotel!
