Back at the ranch, Bob and Jillian talk to the contestants. Jillian notes that it's been an exciting week, but they haven't been working out as much as they should. It's time for the last chance workout. Bob wonders why Allen, who's the strongest and lightest guy left, isn't winning more challenges. He talks to him one on one, and Allen says that he's been playing the game somewhat. This makes Bob nervous. Allen basically says that if he's too strong and seems like the one to beat, he's a target. He's playing the game, but it's not compromising his focus. Bob seems relatively satisfied with that. Gah! And then it's product placement time! They could cut this episode to fifteen minutes long and we'd still get in a plug for Zip-Loc bags.
Last chance workout. You know how it goes. Sweat, beatings, etc. And Dr. Phillian is chomping at the bit to talk to Rudy about his sister's death. When she brings it up, he gets immediately hostile. He says that it's one of those things in life that you have to work through. He's never been one to share his emotions, and didn't think that his sister's death was something he had to talk about with Dr Phillian. They go on a walk in which Rudy carries a giant thing, to keep up with the working out AND to symbolize the fact that he has baggage. He says that as soon as his sister got sick, his parents spent a lot more time with her at the hospital and he got shuffled around a bit to friends and family. Jillian says that he lost his sister and got abandoned at the same time. Rudy wouldn't say abandoned. Jillian would. She tells Rudy that if he doesn't understand what brought him here, he's in trouble. Rudy says what brought him there was not being able to be the father and husband he wanted to be. Why? Because he couldn't move and breathe. Why? Because he weighed 442 pounds. Why? Because he sucks in every problem and leaves it there. This is Jillian's first glimpse of a breakthrough with Rudy. She tells him that there's a deep, unresolved hurt inside of him. If he can't acknowledge that hurt, it won't get better. Jillian asks what happens when people he loves are mad at him. Rudy says that he eats. He starts to say that he's by himself, and Jillian latches on to that and yells, "You're alone! You're alone!" And abandoned! Just like she told him he was. Tah dah. Rudy admits that his talk with Jillian helped.
