The challenge begins, and there is a lot of flipping around pipes. This show has the weirdest challenges. If they're running out of challenge ideas, I've got one. Send the Losers to my neighborhood. Whoever can shovel the most sidewalks and driveways within a 10-block radius AND clean off my car wins! As it is in the current challenge, somebody is going to be rendered infertile before all that rope is off the pipe. Sami continually reminds everyone that they must be exhausted. She's so helpful, isn't she? Laura and Tara's rope gets really tangled, which slows them down even more. Filipe acknowledges that their task is really tiring. A few of the teams finally start to walk to the finish line, hoping that they have enough rope to stretch all the way. The Yellow Team is almost to the finish line, but they have a giant knot that holds them up for a minute. The Blue Team is right behind them, but the Yellows are able to straighten out the knot and stretch their rope across the line. They win! Aubrey is psyched, because this is her first step in proving her seriousness about being on the ranch. Sami tells Mandi and Aubrey that she'll need to hear whether they'll take the $5,000 or the two-pound pass at some point before the weigh-in.
Meanwhile, apparently Cheerios are good for you! As Bl/Da(i)ne says, you can't go wrong with Cheerios! I wonder if Jillian lies in bed at night hating herself for having to do these product placements. If so, I'm sure she pops a slice of Extra Sugar Free Gum in her mouth and suddenly feels great about herself again.
And then it's already time for the last chance workout! Jillian is sick of having to say "it's do or die" every week. Aubrey notes that a last chance workout with Jillian is terrifying. In part, I'm sure, because she psychoanalyzes everyone as she tells them that she doesn't give a shit if their hearts explode. When Laura tells Jillian, upon prompting, that she wants to love her body more than she loves food, Jillian asks Laura if she really loves food. Laura REALLY loves food. Well, yeah, she weighs 300 pounds. Jillian wants Laura to feed her soul. But not with the kind of soul food that involves bacon fat and hambones. Jillian only has three teams compared to Bob's five, so Tara knows that as soon as one of them falls below the yellow line, they're gone.
