Patrick's wife, Bradley, leaves for work and Patrick reminds us that, temporarily at least, he's a house husband. He lost his job at the beginning of the year, and so gets to lead his toddlers in doing chores, and they get to assist him in doing sit-ups. And then they play Biggest Loser Challenge Wii. He calls that a workout. Wii Bob is very lifelike, and seems to impress Patrick's sons. Ada tells us that it's hard to be at home, because she's not losing weight at the same rate as she was at the ranch. She blames this on her diet. With no one watching her, she's been cheating a bit. Ada does not want to be the chump at the finale who steps on the scale with an unimpressive result. Then put down the Fritos, lady!
Frado gets his visit from Curtis Stone, which he's morphed into a charity event. That's pretty nice, even if it entails the phrase "pay it forward." Drink! Curtis serves fresh spring rolls with snow peas and carrots, and feels great to be able to give back to the community. He then signs books and shakes hands and takes pictures with people. Meanwhile, Frado mingles. We meet Paul, from the Theodore A. Atlas Foundation, who is benefiting from this event. Also benefiting is the Andrew J. Gargiso Foundation, which focuses on pediatric cancer. There are five charities overall, and Frado encourages the attendees to bust out their checkbooks. He tells us that the event has raised over $25,000, and says "paying it forward" again. Take a double shot for that one.
And then! Bob and Jillian hit the road to drop in unannounced on the final four. Jillian notes that she's heading to New Bedford, Massachusetts to meet Elizabeth. Elizabeth has moved in with her boyfriend, which is news to Jillian. Not of the good kind, it appears. Jillian, driving a giant SUV because your carbon footprint balances out when you drink your water from a Brita pitcher, nearly runs Ada off the road to surprise her. Bob tries the more conventional approach of walking to Patrick's front yard. Elizabeth seems happy to see Jillian, but likely not for long. Bob interrupts Frado during lunch. There is surprise and happiness and a little bit of nerves all around.
Patrick's mom hugs Bob and thanks him for saving her son. It's very sweet, and must make Bob feel pretty good. Bob says that he loves Patrick, and it makes sense that he has such good parents, because he's such a good man. Except for the parts when he's a punk during elimination. Bob asks Patrick how things have been since he's been home. Patrick says that he felt his first twinge of pressure the week before, wondering what would happen if he didn't win the cash and had to go back to being unemployed and in debt to multiple sources. Bob tells him that not having a job is actually an advantage right now. Almost every winner didn't have to work, and made the competition their job. Bob tells us that he usually urges the contestants to look past the money, but in Patrick's case things are a little different. He needs the cash, and so can be as money-driven as he wants. Bob and Patrick head to the gym for a workout, and Patrick tells us that the competition is his to lose. Bob is totally rooting for him, and encourages Patrick to have tunnel vision at least until he makes it into the top three.
