And now it's time for snack buzzkill. I don't even want to tell you all these things and ruin your Super Bowl, but it's my professional obligation. The first item is chicken wings with ranch dressing. Mmmmm. I'm hungry right now. Some of these fools guessed 5,000 calories, which makes the actual answer of 991 calories seem kind of reasonable. Dan wins, and moves onto the next round. The next snack is a breadbowl with chili and sour cream. Again, yum! Super Bowl snacks are for me. Tara goes with the tried and true The Price Is Right method of guessing one calorie, in hopes that everyone else will go over. The chili breadbowl has 1,165 calories. Kristin is closest, and also moves on to the next round. The final snack is seven-layer dip. The official calorie count on that is: delicious. This show makes me so hungry! It's not right. They could at least try to make all these fatty foods look putrid. The calorie count for the seven-layer dip is 1,755. Helen wins and moves on to the next round, too!
The losers leave as Dan, Helen and Kristin have their cooking class with Curtis. There will be a test at the end to determine the winner. Curtis healths-up the wings by making rosemary chicken breast skewers with a honey mustard glaze. Everyone lies that they are better than wings. I'm sorry, but wings are the food of the sticky-fingered, heartburn-loving gods. Sami returns and asks the contestants to guess how many calories are in the healthy chicken. The person who's the closest wins. The answer is 230, and Dan wins! I hope Curtis enjoys a good buffet.
We travel with Curtis to Raleigh, where he surprises Dave, as much as anyone can be surprised when a camera crew is camped in their yard. Dave calls Curtis a "tall guy with pointy hair," which is pretty hilarious. Dave is excited about the two-pound pass for the next weigh-in, and initially less excited about the cooking lesson. He admits that he's not exactly staying on his diet, and that the lure of greasy, delicious food has gotten to him. Curtis then takes him grocery shopping at motherchucking Wal-Mart. He teaches Dave how to make some spicy chicken on a bed of greens. Dave says it's awesome, and that he can eat the whole thing. Times seven. I don't want to be a pessimist, but I have my doubts about how Dave's going to progress.
Back in the gym, Bob wants his team to do some jumping. For unity! He has Kristin jump on a pretty high platform, which is apparently a victory for the human spirit. Everyone jumps at various levels, and no one falls and cracks their head open. Huzzah.
