Back at the ranch, the Blue Team goes to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. They want to volunteer. It's a good time for it, since one of every eight Americans is at risk of hunger. 200 food banks across the country are in the Feeding America Network, and are attempting to address the problem. The Losers get to fill backpacks for kids who might otherwise not get healthy food -- or, I guess, any food -- over the weekend. Hungry kids aren't cool, man.
Finally, the Black Team returns to the ranch. They share stories for a minute, then head to the gym for a mondo last chance workout. Jillian packs a week's worth of beatings into one day. They love it, though. Bob tells us that if the Blue Team loses this weigh-in, it will be nothing short of pathetic. Danny tells us that something has clicked into place over this week, and he feels like superman. Tracey, meanwhile, is sweating like a pig and loving it. All while crazy-eyed, of course. Jillian is giving Daniel the beating of his life. She tells us that this is his second time on the show and he's lighter than most of the contestants and more fit than all of them, but his numbers have been low week after week. It's a huge cause of concern for her, and she says that she doesn't see the intensity that she needs to see in him. There's something he's not telling her, and she's going to get to the bottom of it. And just like that, Daniel starts crying. He tells Jillian that for years his mother tried to stop him from gaining weight, and he wondered why she couldn't just accept him as he was. She was doing it out of love, but he thought he never was good enough. And now he feels bad for treating her rotten all these years. Eh, I think moms kind of expect that, no matter what you weigh. Daniel wishes he had loved his mom the way she loved him for so long. Jillian points out that Daniel's mom is alive, and so he can show her now how much he loves her. She is happy about Daniel's epiphany, and hopes that the tears lead to some water-weight loss.
Weigh-in! Will the Black Team flop after a week at home? Only the scale will tell. If the Blue Team doesn't emerge victorious, Bob says that he'll be pissed. They weigh in first, with Allen stepping on the scale. He goes from 278 to 270, for a loss of 8 pounds. It's a good start. Rebecca is next, and goes from 237 to 232 for a loss of 5. It's a good number, but she's not happy with it. Bob and Jillian look perplexed and annoyed. Then there's Tracey. She goes from 206 to 202, for a loss of 4. She gets manic, as she is wont to do. I think she makes everyone nervous, and for good reason. Bob tells us that the Blue Team is off to a bit of a shaky start. Liz steps on the scale, and goes from 232 to 228, also for a loss of 4. She's pissed, too, and says that she expected to see the effort match the number, and that didn't happen. It's all up to Rudy to save them. He goes from 369 to 355, for a loss of 14 pounds. Well, that just might do it! Rudy has lost 87 pounds in six weeks, which is pretty impressive. If he makes it to a hundred pound loss next week, he'll be the fastest in Biggest Loser history to do so. The Blue Team has lost 35 pounds total, or 2.65%. That is not impossible to beat. The Black Team must have lost more than 45 pounds to stay safe.
