It is night, and an owl flies off of a branch to signify... something. The fact that any wise being is getting far away from the ranch, perhaps? Courtney reminds us that she and Jen were in Ojai last week, getting massages and going out to dinner. They chose not to have trainer Brett come in for a day, and this and other perhaps not so smart choices affected them on the scale. Jen lost 0 pounds, and was automatically eliminated. Courtney was in shock about it, and is upset that Jen's gone. She's now the only person left on the Red Team. Brett is focusing 100% on Courtney, because he has no other choice. She says she has to push through what's happening with her body, or she's going home. If she loses the eyeliner I'm betting she could drop an extra 3 pounds. Courtney goes to Irene, Olivia and Hannah and says she's going to need their support this week. They're all in, and Hannah even says that it's time for Courtney to be selfish and not worry about motivating the others. These guys are much better than Jen, who peer pressures you into pedicures and tasty meals.
The contestants meet up with Sami in a windy field. She tells them they've traveled hundreds of miles -- on treadmills, bikes, and the like. For this challenge, each team has a flag. They get 15 minutes, and the team that plants its flag closest to one mile from the starting point wins. There are square markers planted along the path, one of which is at an exact one-mile distance. The winning team gets a night of luxury, Hollywood style. Hannah is very excited about the process of wearing something other than sweatpants and dirty tennis shoes. Sami tells everyone that the losers have to clean every inch of the campus, from the gym to the house to Jillian's belly button. Olivia says that the gym is absolutely disgusting, and features piles and puddles of the men's sweat and spit. It is so disgusting that she wants no part of cleaning it, and would in fact rather go through 100 workouts with Bob and Jillian.
The challenge begins, and the bulk of the contestants use some combination of figuring out the distance of their stride and how many steps it will take to hit 5280 feet. Courtney is of course by her lonesome, which she thinks simplifies things. The Black Team is way in the back, and decides to speed up to make sure they're within a mile range. The black tile markers are randomly laid out and not equidistant, and it does seem like you could easily lose count. The Green Team reaches step 1760, which they estimate is about a mile, but they decide to go to the next marker to plant their flag. The Blue Team is off with their counting, and with five minutes left they start to run. They're torn between two tiles, and so panic and just pick one that's behind the Green Team. Courtney plants her flag somewhere in the middle of the other two teams. Moses hits his 1760th step, but Olivia and Irene are far ahead with the flag and can't see or hear him. He approaches them, but time is up and so they have to go to the nearest marker. Hannah worries that they were too slow, and is disappointed and also quite pissy about it.
