The contestants work out, and Elizabeth tells us that this week she's really giving it her all. She's an underdog, but she thinks she can work it out and surprise some bitches. Bob is pissed because though Brendan thinks he's giving 100%, he isn't. Bob intends to ride Brendan until he is, in fact, giving 100%. Brendan looks annoyed. Good. There is serious working out, lots of sweating, screaming, and the usual.
And hey! Then Jennie-O turkey makes an appearance! It's been too long, old friend. The contestants talk about what they'd do with the $250,000 prize. Brendan tries to win back our love by talking about the inner-city kids that he teaches, and how he wants to start a foundation to be able to take them to places like Fitness Ridge. He starts crying. Still not working. Mark would travel with his father, who was diagnosed with melanoma two years ago and has never had traveling opportunities. We get a flashback to Mark and his adorable father, and then Mark seriously cries as he says that even though his dad is cancer-free now, he doesn't know how much time he has left. Patrick already has a new car thanks to Ada, and so says that he'd pay down a whole lot of debt racked up when he became unemployed. Ada says that she'd like to start an afterschool center to give kids a safe place to develop confidence and get positive reinforcement and support. Especially kids who have whack families, like her own. Frado talks about paying it forward. Why have we not started a "paying it forward" drinking game?
Oh man, and then it's time for Frado to visit with Dr. Huizenga. Frado had lots of health problems when he came on the show, including seriously out of control diabetes. If you'll recall, Dr. H. told him that he was on a one-way trip to the morgue. When it comes down to it, aren't we all? Dr. Huizenga looks more and more like Cynthia Nixon's girlfriend with every episode. In any case, Frado is now off all of his myriad medications. He's gone from out of control diabetes to well-controlled diabetes verging on normal. Dr. H. says that this is an endocrinologist's dream, and he's thrilled to be a part of it.
