Liz talks about how she blamed her weight gain on everything and everybody except herself. She would tell her husband that the dryer shrunk her shirt and pants. Liz wants to send a message to all the women out there. She talks about eating ice cream as she watched the weigh-ins on The Biggest Loser, and every time she would plan to change, but never did. For years, Liz took care of her husband, her business and her kids. She tried to be everything to everybody, and somewhere along the way she lost herself. Liz says you can't be everything to everybody and not take care of yourself. From this day forward, she's making herself a priority. We then get a montage of the contestants' final messages. Rudy wants to help some other large father to get off the couch. Amanda is done running away from her problems. Danny is going to finish his journey, but also wants the audience members (including us!) to start our journeys. The audience goes wild for all of them, and the contestants are proud.
After a commercial break, the glamour is over and it's time for a challenge. Sami tells the contestants that this challenge will take them to heights they've never imagined. They're going to have to cross a canyon that's 200 feet high. Each contestant has a pulley and will have to pull him or herself from one side of the canyon to the other -- a distance of 700 feet. The first person to reach the other side wins. And the winner will get a two week trip to the brand new Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge in St. George, Utah. It's grown up fat camp! Also, will the branding never end? First the protein powder, now this.
The contestants suit up and get strapped on a little plastic seat attached to the cable. Liz is freaking out, which loosens Danny up. Because it's hilarious. Liz screams and hoots and hollers and makes the safety guys promise her that she can't fall out of the front or side of the chair. The others encourage her, but Liz continues to freak out. She decides to close her eyes the entire way across. With that, the contestants are off. Rudy takes an early lead, followed by Amanda. The others can't quite get into a rhythm. As Rudy slows a bit, Amanda closes in. But it's not enough, and Rudy wins. Despite having the outward appearance of excitement, this was kind of a dull challenge. Liz is last to cross, but completes the challenge. She still can't wait to get down on solid ground, but is pretty proud that she managed to do it. It should be mentioned that the contestants are standing atop a platform that has photos of them at the start of their journey. When Sami tells them to, they cover their old photos with their fancy makeover photos. Looking good!
