Cara, meanwhile, is still on a mission to get Rulon to open up and admit that he needs help. Cara asks him, while on the treadmill, why he always has to be in control. The answer, of course, is that he lost control and gained a million pounds. He stepped away and checked out for six years, and then finally realized, after seeing himself in the paper, that he was pretty fat. It made him take a good look at himself, and realize that he was on the path to, well, death. Cara tells Rulon that he's going to gain all his weight back, and then wants him to scream that he's not going to gain all the weight back. He does yell, and then starts crying. This is a rebirth and an opportunity for him to prove himself. Cara is proud that Rulon "verbalized himself" and let his heart out. She adds, "The lightbulb is starting to go off in Rulon's head." Speaking of bulbs, I'm not sure Cara is the brightest one. She's very pretty though, and could doubtlessly beat the shit out of me. Those both recommend her well enough.
Meanwhile, the Black Team has their workout outside. On machines. I mean, they're not exactly gymless, even though they don't have treadmills. Everyone does overhead presses with lawn furniture, and Hannah finally approves of everyone's level of commitment. Jillian knows that Arthur is questioning himself, and so has him push her truck, like everyone did in the first week. Inspirational music plays as Arthur pushes the big Chevy. It's a triumph of the spirit! Go out in your parking lot at work and just start pushing the shit out of your co-workers' vehicles! You will lose 55% of your body weight by doing so, and also achieve perfect mental health. Hey, it's cheaper than becoming a Scientologist.
With that, it's weigh-in time. The Red Team weighs in first, before we even find out whose weight from the Black Team won't count. Jay is up first, and goes from 317 to 308 pounds, for a loss of 9 pounds. He seems relatively encouraged by this. Jen tells us that her dad has a laser focus that he never had before, and has blossomed into a person who knows he has what it takes to meet his goal. He's lost 92 pounds so far. Jen is up next. She goes from 218 to 211, for a loss of 7 pounds. Pretty good! But she still worries that she's on the chopping block, and 7 pounds isn't going to keep her and her dad on campus. Moses is up next, and goes from 340 to 333, for a loss of 7 pounds. He hoped for more, but such is life. Kaylee is next, and goes from 190 to 187, for a loss of 3 pounds. See, that's normal. She says it was a hard week, but she'll take the loss. Brett says that it's getting harder for Kaylee to lose weight, but she's right on track.
