- October 11|
After the loss of Nelson, everyone is losing it. The red team can not believe
that they were punished so badly for creating a tie. The blue team on the other
hand is enjoying their situation.
Kim, the red teams trainer is not happy with the red team at all. She
recognizes that this is a game, but at the same time is hurt by the result of
the last vote. She makes it her goal to help the red team take out their
frustrations by running down to the gate and back, but the red team has other
ideas. They dog the entire run giving Kim attitude and sitting on the curb
instead of even walking. Kim is more than pissed, but she doesnt express her
anger as much as previously.
Maybe she held her emotions in knowing that the red team would need to be strong
for the next temptation. Sitting in front of each loser is s series of plates
containing foods from carrots to twinkies. The losers may eat food to stack a
cleaned plate onto a communal pile, knowing that the last plate stacked when
time runs out will earn a free pass (immunity that can be transferred). The
trick? No one knows when the buzzer will go off.
The game begins and red is scarfing down food quickly competing amongst each
other. The girls of red have decided that they are playing the game together and
that if one of them wins all of them win. Meanwhile Wylie is worried that if one
of the girls wins that will just spell more trouble for him as the red men are
in the minority.
Brian on blue notices something very interesting. Because red is eating so
quickly, his eating of carrots is forcing them to eat cookies. He and other
members of the blue team take pleasure in this and as a result many members of
the red team end up consuming more than 400 calories as opposed to blue team
members staying under 100 each.
Bzzz! Who wins? Kais plate is on top and she has won the free pass.
After the temptation, red sits down with Kim and we find out why Kim held some
of her emotions in. For the first time this series, Kim was actually hurt by the
lack of effort shown by her team and as a result, Kim sheds tears. She explains
that she hasnt always been fitness Barbie and that she is an air force brat
and never had really had the opportunity to stay in one place and connect with
anyone. The red team received her warmly and for the first time in a long time,
the red team seems united.
Good thing to, because in the next challenge the teams will have to rely on each
others motivation greatly. Welcome to the escalator of death. The teams will
have to stay on the escalator as long as possible. The last teams standing will
choose which member of blue will have to sit out the weigh in and all remaining
members on the winning team will split $10,000.
Within minutes the teams are dropping like flies and after about 8 minutes only
Marty on blue and Pam in red remain. The legs are burning and the emotions are
running high. Marty attempts to psych Pam out by sliding down the escalator a
bit but Pam does not falter eventually, Pams legs give out, but so do Martys
and because he is further down the escalator he hits bottom first. Win to red!
Red is now 4-0 in challenges. Pretty scary, huh?
After a quick last chance workout lets head to the scales.
Red decides to make Marty sit out the weigh in and he will weigh in first.
---- Now for the rest of blue
red team missed that one
Missed that one
Total blue team loss: 26 lbs. Percentage: 1.92%
Red Team (Must lose more than 23 pounds to win)
Red team total weight loss: 30 lbs. Percentage 2.41%
Red Team wins!
And the blue team will flop back to the elimination room. Brian was the biggest
loser on the blue team so he can not be sent home.
Red is cheerful. Blue is distraught, but blue must make a decision. Here it is.
Brian votes for Melinda saying the only reason is because she entered the
Amy votes for Melinda for the same reason.
Melinda is taking the votes against her well and she will have to take another
one and Marty votes against Melinda putting her one vote away from elimination.
Melinda gets to vote before an imminent demise and places a vote for Bobby,
praising him before doing so.
Unfortunately, by doing that with Bobby having not voted yet she effectively
eliminated herself and with that Melinda will be leaving the ranch.
Melinda is doing great in Alabama though. She has now lost a total of 53 pounds
putting her clean under 200 and plans on starting a family with her husband
Next time, the gym is closed, so we will see how the losers cope. Until then,
do something to make yourself proud.
The battle of the bulge takes a high-tech turn as 50 people from
50 states with one thing in common... girth... compete to see
who can shed the most ounces.
