Carla then says that she, and not Joelle, should have been the one to stay. And then Carla FREAKS OUT again and pounds the table and is maybe going to smother Joelle with a leaf of Romaine. She says that she wants this so bad, and both of their lives are in Joelle's hands. Joelle remains dead-eyed and says that she has a vision for both of them to come forth and push. Carla looks at her like she's crazy, which she is. These two are a trip, man. Bob finally tells Carla that she's made her point, and has to trust her teammate right now. He tells Joelle that they're going to get through this weigh-in, and everyone toasts with their glasses of iced bitterness and spite.
And then it's time for visits with Dr. H. Blaine gets to throw away all eight of his medications! Yay! Ron has gone from ten medications to one! Everyone is saving a bunch of money on co-pays. Eating right and working out works, yo!
With that, it's time for this week's challenge. It involves a crazy swinging contraption and very dramatic music and lots of close-ups on the Biggest Loser logo. Turns out this is the classic challenge where contestants have to jump over a swinging beam. Contestants are eliminated when their beams break. The last person standing will win immunity. Tara is determined to take it for a second week in a row, even though she's not so skilled at jumping.
The competition begins, and Joelle totally breaks her beam on her first jump. Man, maybe she did deserve all that yelling from Carla and Bob. Ron doesn't make it past his first jump, either. Dan is eliminated on his second jump, quickly followed by Helen at three jumps. The rest of the contestants happily are not so lame, and Damien is next to be eliminated after 10 minutes and 57 jumps. Tara tells us that the key to this competition is not losing your concentration, which is hard to do when you're just standing in one place and jumping for minutes on end. Sadly for Filipe, he loses his focus and is out after 105 jumps. 20 minutes in, Kristin, Mandi, Tara and Dan are all still in it, and Sami announces it's over 95 degrees out. I should feel sorry for them, but having just endured 2-degree weather and ANOTHER foot of snow, I can't muster any sympathy. Mandi breaks her beam next, at 141 jumps. She breaks down crying, as is her custom this episode.
After half an hour, the beam gets faster. And then woah! These bitches have been going for an hour and 45 minutes! At 701 jumps, Dane is out, leaving Kristin and Tara to battle for the prize. Two hours have passed, and Kristin explains that she's hot, tired, sore, and thirsty. She and Tara hit 1,000 jumps. They are both relentless. Everyone else is bored out of their gourds. Finally, at 1,030 jumps and nearly two hours and 20 minutes, Kristin breaks her beam. Tara is the winner! The Green Team is safe for one more week. Both Tara and Sami give Kristin props for being so awesome. She's gracious, but pretty bummed because she wanted this for her team. Meanwhile, Tara pukes. She then says the grosses thing I've ever heard. And I quote: "Actually, that's one way I stayed alive. Because I was throwing up in my mouth." And she doesn't mean this in a 2004 snark-filled way, either. Too bad Bret Michaels isn't here to reward her with a Dorito-tinged makeout session.
