Damien interviews that Joelle is a 41-year old woman, but emotionally she's 12 or 13. Mandi is also peeved at Joelle's excitement. She seems to think that Joelle is gloating extra because she knows that Mandi won't get to go home and see her kids. I mean, I know Joelle is kind of a pill, but I actually thought her celebration was reasonable. And it's not even her fault that she's the one who gets to go home! Sami announces that Carla consumed 2,710 calories. When Carla wins, she wins big. XXL big. Joelle tells everyone that she's not happy because Carla consumed so much, but she knows that Carla's strength is being able to gorge herself and then get back to work. Well, apparently it's not, or she wouldn't weigh 380 pounds. Joelle continues that the important thing for them now is to rekindle. Filipe tells her that rekindling doesn't burn calories, and then announces that Mandi deserved to go home because she has kids. Oh, that's crap. Mandi's bitter. Well, she should have had 17 more slices of pizza if she was serious about this. Joelle interviews that she feels like an outsider. She doesn't know if she's done it to herself, and robotically says, "I've tried to be engaging." Then her speech chip malfunctions and she says it again. In any case, Joelle and Bob are traveling to Detroit, and the rest of Bob's team are on their own for a few days.
Back at the gym, Bob enters. We get a flashback of Bob freaking out and dropping f-bombs all over Joelle. Kristin also does a dramatic interpretation of the event for us. Bob does not seem all that thrilled that he'll be heading to Detroit with Joelle. He's going to be forced to tell Carla that Joelle has been stinking it up, and then witness a homicide. And hey! Before we know it we're in Detroit, in Carla's manse. Seriously, her house is huge. Carla gives Bob and Joelle a big warm greeting, and then everyone settles in for a talk. Carla tells Bob that she's been staying positive at home, and then Bob talks about his and Joelle's "growing pains." But the editors are not going to show us that smile again (oooh, show us that smile). Instead, they are going to show us Bob screaming, "I'm sick of just words, words, words! Talk, talk, talk! Shut the fuck up!" If I had a nickel for every time Carol Seaver said that exact same thing. Bob tells Carla that Joelle is at the bottom of the list at the weigh-in. Carla interviews that Joelle needs to get herself together because there is no time for foolishness.
Carla confrontationally asks Joelle how she'd feel if she knew Carla was at home not doing what she's supposed to be doing. I mean, says the woman who just ate 3,000 calories. But put that aside for a minute. Because Bob suddenly becomes a big, bold, sassy black woman and just goes, "Oooooooooooh." I'm surprised he doesn't toss a "You go girl!" in Carla's direction. We go to commercial, and when we come back instead of getting the satisfaction of seeing Carla bitch-slap Joelle as Bob waves his finger in her face, we have the three of them peacefully talking about yogurt as a healthy snack. That is so wrong.
