Allison lights the Olympic torch, then allows each contestant the chance to hold the torch as they march toward the big saucer-looking thing that they light. Allison lights it like nobody's business as the others feel very inspired and cheer a lot and chant "U.S.A.! U.S.A.!" just like the statues did a few minutes ago. Let the games begin!
We take a commercial break, and then the contestants check into their rooms at the Olympic Training Center. Lance notes how crazy it is that being fat got him to the Olympics. Everyone gets a note and flag signed by all of the Center's resident athletes. O'Neal notes that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and Sunshine wraps the flag around her sweaty back. U.S.A.! U.S.A.!
After a little shuteye, the trainers and the USOTC Nutritionists, whose names are Adam and Laura, give a little tour of the cafeteria. Because Olympic athletes work out so much, they can eat up to 8,000 calories a day. The Losers can't do this. We learn that a speed skater might eat a big, 750-calorie plate of spaghetti and meatballs because she needs high carbs for sustained energy. A weightlifter would want a 500-calorie high-protein moderate carb meal to maintain weight. It looks like steak and broccoli and guacamole. Weird. Bob tells us that everything is healthy, and for a purpose -- it's fuel. There's some sort of skinny Judo athlete who is trying to put on weight and so has a 1200-calorie burger and pasta salad meal, which has quality carbs and healthy fats to build lean mass. Also, all Olympic athletes really like to drink chocolate milk, apparently.
Stephanie is drawn toward a dessert case, because she has a real sweet tooth. But do you know what she should have instead of a sweet dessert? You got it -- Extra Sugar Free Gum. Only 17 minutes into the show! These people are becoming bigger bitches by the episode!
Sam approaches Koli, who's all torn up about John. Koli says that John is a family man and has a wife -- he's more important than Koli, who has nothing. Koli notes that this might be a reflection on how he values himself. Uh, yeah. Sam agrees that Koli has some serious self-worth issues, but Koli still says that he thinks John needs it more than he does. He feels unworthy of this great opportunity. Koli says that he's been fighting the growth that he needs to do, because it's so hard. He really wants to run. But he knows he has to let all the walls down, let it happen, and let himself grow. Koli is Phillianizing himself! He's sure saving himself the stress of having a lady screaming in his face. Well done.
