Question three asks how much Americans spend on gastric bypass surgery every year. The choices are: a) $44 million; b) $440 million; c) $4.4 billion. The correct answer is a whopping $4.4 billion. Holy stomach staple. Only Allen gets this one right. Suze says that 220,000 people (!!!) get gastric bypass surgery every year at a cost of $20,000 per surgery. That is madness. Question four asks how much Americans spend on obesity-related health issues every year. The choices are: a) $147 million; b) $1.47 billion; c) $147 billion. The correct answer is $147 billion, which everyone gets right. And to make matters worse, the U.S. spends only $90 billion on cancer per year. Suze tells the contestants to be as afraid of the "o" word as they are of the "c" word. Uh, no comment, girlfriend. The final question asks how much money you will save over 40 years by going from obesity to your ideal weight. The choices are: a) $10,000; b) $100,000; c) $1 million. The answer is $1 million. Everyone gets it right except for Allen. Each contestant gets between $3,000 -- 4,000 in the special Suze TD Ameritrade thing. Danny is happy that he'll have an emergency fund now. Suze says that having an emergency fund lessens your anxiety, which gives you power. You can thus say no to food and yes to exercise. And always say yes to Suze. She won't let you buy anything until you do.
Oh, and then it's time for product placement. Multigrain Cheerios, this time! The Biggest Loser is making a real cereal push this episode.
With that, we're back in the gym. This episode basically features the contestants saying the same things over and over again for two hours. Amanda has no more allies. The oldsters are against her. She's gone if she falls below the yellow line. Rudy and Danny are the two big guys left, and each sees the other as a serious competitor. Allen says he can give each of the big guys a run for their money, but they both started the season much heavier than he did. For Allen, this is all about finishing what he started. His goal is to become a finalist, and he's on his way to doing it. Liz also vows to fight to be in the final four.
