The Green Team is next. Allen goes from 306 to 296 for a loss of 10, while Abby goes from 232 to 221 for a loss of 11. Things are looking decidedly up. The Brown Team is next. Liz goes from 257 to 247 for a loss of 10, while Danny goes from 406 to 394 for a loss of 12. This is what happens when you work out for eight hours a day. Bob pats himself and Jillian on the back for getting the job done. There are three teams left to weigh in, and 24 pounds to lose to win the challenge. The Blue Team heads to the scale. Rudy goes from 414 to 400 for a loss of 14, while Dina goes from 245 to 237 for a loss of 8. It seems increasingly less likely that Julio is going to fuck everything up, doesn't it? He heads to the scale, with two pounds to lose for a triumphant challenge victory. He goes from 394 to 375 for a loss of 19 freaking pounds! This flies in the face of Shay's theory that you actually have to exercise to lose weight. Well, you can't be right about everything. With the Orange Team left to weigh in, the contestants need an 18 pound loss to reach their original goal of 150 pounds. All they'll win is bragging rights, since it's already been determined that no one will be eliminated. Dan goes from 300 to 293 for a loss of 7, while Shay goes from 459 to 443 for a loss of 16. Damn! That's 155 pounds total that they lost. Dan is thrilled to be in the 200s for the first time since his freshman year in high school, and everyone else is thrilled to have, as Shay puts it, told week two where to shove it. With that, there is no elimination and everyone just gets to enjoy a good night's sleep! Including me!
Next week: I can't be quite sure about this, but I think the contestants make some deal with the devil that involves not having their trainers for the whole week. The trainers are not pleased.
