The next morning, Bob greets his team and asks if they're alive from the challenge. Brady is embarrassed to tell Bob that they were bageled. For good reason. Bob's upset that the Black Team wiped the floor with them. Heba tells him that balancing your way around the big circle was a hard thing to get on the first try, and Bob retorts that it wasn't hard for the Black Team. Touché, Senor Pilates. Vicky then pipes in to say that videos from home weren't worth getting hurt over. Bob interviews that whether the prize is letters from home or a two-pound advantage or a pack of gum, you still go in and do the best that you can do. Vicky is not hearing it, though. She says that her only goal is to bring home $350,000 dollars. While Brady might legitimately be able to win something, I love that she thinks her gimpy self is going to win either the grand or at-home prize. Amy P. is disappointed in her team's negative attitude, and thus understands Bob's disappointment. Bob reiterates that he hates the stank attitude, and tells them to try their hardest. Vicky stares at him dead-eyed.
Meanwhile, videos from home! Michelle is first and realizes that this is not an ordinary video -- it's a live video chat! With her dad and brothers and sisters and everybody she loves. As you might suspect, the whole family is pretty attractive. Michelle's dad is so punk rock, and totally reassures her that she should be there. They give a video high-five. Coleen is next to see her family. Aw, Jerry! And Coleen's two sisters along with her boyfriend and his brother. Her boyfriend tells her that she looks amazing. Jerry assures Coleen that he's doing well and has lost 10 pounds since being at home. He's crying. And then Coleen's boyfriend starts crying, too. He tells her how beautiful she is, and how much he misses her. Oh, young love.
Renee next gets her video chat with her husband, who is also holding her dog! Aww. And ooh! Renee likes a little chocolate in her caramel, if you get my drift. He's super cute, and maybe younger than her. They love each other. Renee says that seeing her husband was worth more than any money or prize she could have received. Phil gets to talk with his mother-in-law and father-in-law, along with two of his sons -- Austin and Rhett. He's relieved that everything is going well at home, and says that he'll pass on the news and good wishes to Amy.
And with that it's time for the last-chance workout! Amy tells us that she's in a precarious position with her team. Other folks have formed alliances, so the only way she can stay is to drop some poundage. She has to be the biggest loser this week. Vicky says that she's more determined than most people, unless she's trying to walk around a big circular balance beam above a pool for a prize that she considers stupid anyway. For her part, Jillian wants to see her team puking. If you're not puking, she says, you're just not working hard enough. She threatens to break all of Phil's fingers if he touches the rails of the treadmill. Meanwhile, Bob wants to see if Brady can leg press 670 pounds. Jesus. He screams and makes a devil face, but he does ten reps. Everyone claps for him. Jillian holds Phil with a resistance band as she makes him run on the treadmill. He thinks it's fucked up. The girls call Jillian cruel and unusual. Phil pretends he's going to throw up so he can get off the treadmill. But then he actually does throw up. That's gotta be at least a pound. Coleen tells us that there are days when Jillian's like the older sister you want to punch but can't. As Coleen screams in pain, Jillian yells for Phil to get back in the gym. Michelle tells us that Jillian has a way of pushing you further than you even think you can go. Amy P. is being pushed pretty hard, too, as she leg presses 450 pounds and screams as if she's giving birth to her fourth child. She feels like her legs are going to break in half, and cries. Bob tells her to do it again. She does. Mostly everyone always lives, which is a good thing, except in Vicky's case.
