At 4:45 p.m., when things have cooled to a chilly 96 degrees, the teams take off again. The Black Team continues their group strategy, but get a little worried when they see Brady sprinting along past them. Eventually, though, Brady inspires the Black Team to run. The Blue Team finishes with five minutes left. The Black Team rushes down. With seconds left, Shellay sprints down the mountain to join her Black Team at the finish line for one final picture. She didn't think she could do it, but then heard Jillian screaming obscenities in her ear and started to hustle. Everyone is proud of their performance. Sami tells them that in 14 hours they walked over 160 miles as a group. When they finished, the teams were within a mile of each other. One team walked 81 miles, while the other team walked 79.8 miles. In the end, however, it was a game of points. And with 162 points the Black Team wins! Yay for team work. They get the two pound pass for the weigh-in. Brady as an individual ran further than anyone -- over 20 miles. Holy smokes! That's pretty amazing. Brady is proud of how much he's changed in just five weeks.
The next day, Bob's team sits by the pool and eats Jell-O. Did you know there are only 10 calories in Jell-O? And that you can add Cool Whip in a can to it? Only 20 calories more! Mmm, delicious animal bones and hides and random chemicals! Stick a slice of Extra Sugar-Free Gum in there and you've got yourself a sundae. Bob's Team tells him about the challenge, including the news that they lost. He tells his team that they need to work even harder since they're at a two-pound disadvantage.
Dr. Phillian, meanwhile, has another talk with Michelle, who still feels like she's betraying her father by being there with her mother. She's thinking about leaving, so Jillian is pulling out all the stops and putting her on the phone with her dad. She's hoping that the conversation Michelle has with her dad will enable her to stay. Michelle's dad sounds so happy to hear from her, but once she hears his voice she starts crying. She interviews that for the last six years she's had a smile on the outside, but done more damage to herself on the inside. She's 26 and doesn't know who she is. Michelle asks her dad if he feels like she's betrayed him by being there with her mom instead of him. She needs to know that it's okay to love both of them. He says it is, 100%. She fears that if she loves her mom she'll lose her dad. He tells her that that's silly, and that she needs her mama. He adds that she shouldn't think about coming home or bailing out. She's an inspiration to him right now. Dr. Phillian says that Michelle took huge steps on the phone with her dad. However, Michelle still doesn't know what she's going to do. Dr. Phillian says that Michelle is at the epic crossroads: one way is through the fire and into healing, and the other is a loop right back to the beginning. Jillian hopes she chooses the fire.
