Jay and Jillian went back to
Missouri to continue the program at home. He was able to
save the White Team from elimination when he put up yet
another surprising number. But what happens next put the
house in a sour mood, as Ruben was, for the first time
in reality TV history, eliminated from the competition.
CHALLENGE #6: Winner Winner, Quiz or Dinner
The Losers arrive at a
typical American diner to take a Q&A on healthy eating
habits. The team that loses this challenge will have to
work in this
dessert-laden-sugary-fatty-paradise-purgatory for the
whole week. The other two teams go back to the ranch and
business as usual.

So the Reds and the Blues
are heading back to the gym. The White Team... suit up,
you're on the clock.
So where is Ruben
Studdard now? He's down to 350, and he's back in the
studio working on his next album. He's always going to
be busy, but he's going to take some time out for
himself. He hopes to be in the 200s by the finale.
Back at the Ranch,
Jillian's taking the news... in typical Jillian fashion.
That is, throwing a hissy fit, getting a bear hug from
Dolvett, and then going outside to vent.
At the diner, the White
Team is busying themselves with work so as not to be
tempted into giving up what they have worked towards.
Instead, they decide that the Blue and the Red should
share in the bounty of their experience. That's just
terrible. Bringing home cookies and chili fries.
"Use your fear as fuel."
And the Reds feel honored and accomplished working under
Over with the Blues, Bob
is driven nuts over Hap's low numbers. He's following
the diet. He's working out. Time that this reality show
gets a reality check. You see... when you honestly work
out at the levels that they are working out, there is
going to be someone who gains muscle and loses fat. He
may weigh the same or even more, but you have to think
about muscle and fat. Is he gaining muscle as well as
losing fat? Just a scientific way of thinking about
Even so, Bob wants him to
document everything that he puts in his mouth.
Meanwhile, Bobby is
struggling doing a forward roll. I was not the most fit
person in grade school gym class. But I could do a
forward roll. Chin in chest. Simple. And it's not just
his rolls, it's also his role. He's got a problem with
confidence. He needs to dig deep and find an inner
After a hard day at work
comes a hard day at the gym. And this is only day 1. You
still have a whole week. When you have less time to work
out, you basically have to go high-intensity to maximize
your burn. Tumi's finding it hard to stay in control,
because her schedule is no longer in her power. After
the workout, we have a free meal for the Reds & the
Blues... courtesy of the White Team. You suck. Just
Bobby does the noble
thing and throws the food away. Adding to that... a
layer of soap. That ... doesn't help Hap any, who finds
cookies all over his room. And Matt's.

Taylor gets a surprise call from Dolvett, hoping to
glean the expertise he gained from working with Lindsay

nothing but lean protein & green veggies for dinner for
