The Purple Team gets the first question, which asks which of the plates of steak in front of them contains the correct serving for a family of four. Tracey gets handsy with the meat, and she and Coach Mo eventually pick the right plate. The next question is to the Orange Team, and asks for three methods of cooking without oil. Shay is at the ready with her answer of baking, poaching, and steaming. Correct! They only need three more to get the 15 pound advantage. The Brown Team is next. They are asked how many calories are in a chicken Caesar salad. The options are 540, 840, or 1010 calories. They go with 1010, which is frighteningly correct. The Pink Team is asked how many fewer calories are in a serving of pasta with 50% zucchini replacement. The choices are 110, 248, or 343. They go with 248, which is correct! They only need one more. The Green Team is up, and they're asked how many calories you'd consume if you had one 16 ounce soda with three refills. The choices are 685, 747 or 789 calories. Abby and Alan go with 789, when the correct answer is 747. Four right, one wrong. The Red Team is then asked to choose which of the desserts in front of them has less than 150 calories. They guess the parfait, when the correct answer is a cup of raspberries with dark chocolate dipping sauce. Four right, two wrong. The Blue Team gets asked to name two reasons why it's good to add protein to every snack. Rudy says that it makes you feel fuller and gives more fuel for your muscles, which is correct! The contestants get the 15-pound advantage and are quite happy about it. Now they have to lose a total of more than 135 pounds to avoid eliminating anyone.
Hour two begins with a challenge on the open seas. Or open lake. There are four rafts separated by balance beams, and the contestants will have to ensure that each individual gets safely across the balance beams from one raft to the next. They have to move as a group -- everyone has to make it to one raft before they can move to the next. If someone falls in, the challenge is over for everyone. Additionally, the balance beams decrease in size so things get more difficult as they go. There is a prize for getting to each raft. If everyone reaches the first raft, they'll get a five-pound advantage. There's an additional five-pound advantage for getting to the second raft. If they make it to the third raft they get phone calls from home. And if they make it to the fourth raft, the season is over and I get to go to bed. In my dreams! They'll actually get the satisfaction of knowing that they worked together successfully as a team... and ten more pounds. Five-pound advantages practically fall from the trees, don't they?
