Sami gathers the teams at the actual mile marker, where no one has planted a flag. The Green Team did not win, nor did Courtney. She's all set with the luxury anyway. The first and second place teams had a difference of only 4 feet between them, apparently. It's the Black Team that wins in the end, and so Hannah's pissiness was for naught. They get one night of luxury, Hollywood-style, and more importantly don't have to clean the disgusting ranch.
Courtney meets with Brett. She tells him that it was scary to see the low number on the scale. She's sick of her plateauing, and has steadily been going down in her pounds lost per week. Brett tells her that if her burn is really high and calories low it works for a certain amount of time, but then the body goes into starvation mode and wants to hold on to calories. Thus, they're going to raise her calories and lower her burn. Courtney wants to keep Brett in a job, and Brett very much wants the same thing, so she's going to follow his advice to the letter. She's hoping for a four-pound loss this week.
Cara meets with the Green Team, and says this is a make or break week. The Green Team had a great showing last week, and she's determined that they'll have another against all odds. As Cara has the Greens do sprints, Ken starts to have a spasm in his side. It hurts more than his already whack back, and he's concerned about it. Ken sees the medic, who tells him to keep moving and that he can walk at a fast pace. Ken knows that he's limited and that he's going to have to count on his young teammates to carry him this week. Since it's unclear what kind of numbers the already small Kaylee can pull, Austin says it might come down to him.
The Blue Team meets with Bob, and tells him about the challenge loss. Unsurprisingly, he doesn't think that the Hollywood luxury evening is a good prize anyway, and adds that cleaning the ranch will burn calories. Bob thinks that this weigh-in will be hard for the Blue Team, and says they need to be soldiers. Olivia tells us this is the first week they've seen Bob be really concerned about the gravity of the situation, and that they have no margin for error. The Black Team walks in, minus Rulon and Jillian, and Bob temporarily adopts Jay and Hannah while noting that he'd like to be a fly on the wall for Jillian's great Rulon tortilla chip beatdown of 2011.
