John and Stephanie are next. John needs to have lost more than 13 pounds to keep them safe. Stephanie goes from 243 to 236 for a loss of 7, while John goes from 451 to 437 for a loss of 14, or 3.10%. They're safe. Next is the Red Team. Lance needs to have lost more than 9 pounds to best the Orange Team. He does it, going from 336 to 324 for a loss of 12. And then there's Melissa, who goes from 215 to 214 for a loss of 1 pound. Jillian says to Bob, "She threw the weigh-in...again." Melissa has a smirk on her face that I suspect is going to be wiped off after a commercial break.
Melissa and Lance hug, and Sami notes it's a good thing that Sam and Koli didn't decide to switch up the Red Team. Melissa starts going on a very fakey speech about how frustrated she is with her weight loss or lack thereof, and that she wants to sit on the couch and eat a cheeseburger. Jillian says, "She's full of shit. And you're not fooling anyone. You threw the weigh-in last week. This week, you threw the weigh-in again. And I don't care, because obviously it is a game. So I think the only thing that's annoying, or I'll say offensive, is that you think we're stupid." Actually, I think Jillian's drunk. Or maybe just drunk with rage? Melissa says she's offended that Jillian thinks she's lying. Jillian tells her that she would have had to have eaten 7,000 calories a day to have negated all the exercise that she's doing. Bob asks Melissa if she worked out this week, and if she's been binging. Melissa says she has been working out, but didn't hit 6,000 calories. The trainers ask if she hit 3,000. She says she did. Bob asks if Melissa understands why they're so upset, and Melissa in turn asks if they understand why she's so upset. And then things devolve into yelling and everyone else (except for the producers) is very uncomfortable. Finally Bob screams that it's not a joke here, and Melissa screams that it's not a joke to her, and Bob calms down a little bit and tells her not to lie to him. Melissa yells that she's offended that they're questioning her integrity. Jillian is offended that she's questioning their knowledge. Finally, as Melissa shrieks something else, Jillian asks Bob why they're fighting with her and Bob says it's time to move on. Um, yeah. Sami asks Lance if he has any comment. He doesn't. No wonder they're on the verge of divorce. In any case, Lance has lost 3.57%, which puts the Red Team at the top of the pack.
