Anyway, Jillian's tactics work yet again. She asks Amanda why she's so attached to being a failure, and Amanda replies that she's used to being the fat girl who doesn't know how to do this. Jillian tells Amanda that she wants to fail, and poor Danny who has been standing there awkwardly finally decides to leave and get on the elliptical or whatever. Amanda cries that Jillian pushes her so hard, but she's not ready to be pushed to that level. She doesn't want to fail, and doesn't think she can do it with the cameras around and Jillian yelling so much. Well, that's a point. Jillian tells Amanda that she's not failing, she's quitting. And she needs a big helping of courage. Amanda tells Jillian that stepping on the treadmill is bravery. Jillian wants her to make it count, and adds that she's the strongest member on the team. Amanda doesn't think it's true, but Jillian does. She tells Amanda that if she doesn't bring intention to these actions, they're nothing but a punishment. Also, you make life happen instead of waiting for it to happen to you.
Jillian starts the treadmill again, and Amanda steps off saying she can't do it now with all the pressure in her face. Danny is on the other side of the gym, standing awkwardly. Maybe this is a good time to go make a Jennie-O and Extra Sugar-Free Gum casserole. Amanda sits down and cries. She's really cracking from the pressure and the weirdness of being on reality TV. Jillian tells her to pull herself together and they'll deal with it one step at a time, and also asks what Amanda's going to do in real-life situations that are pressure-filled. Amanda notes that they won't be filmed by cameras, but this is not the point. Jillian tells Amanda that if she quits, that's failing. Amanda is done, and leaves the gym in a fit of tears. Quit. Fail. Jillian looks at the camera and asks, "Why are these contestants so freaking difficult this season?" Maybe because you and Bob are yelling more this season? And because they have rhabdomyolysis or whatever?
We take a commercial break, and when we return the players are on a baseball field in full uniform. The number on each player's shirt corresponds to how much weight he or she has lost. Danny's is extra special, since "73" was also his high school football number. We get a photo of young football playing Danny, with his mullet and gold lame football pants and skinny body. He goes on again about being a champion. The contestants notice that there are a whole bunch of baseballs out on the field, along with life-sized photos of the contestants when they first came to the ranch and were much heavier. It turns out, of course, that this is a challenge. A face-off challenge. And Derek Jeter is there (via video) to tell them the rules. On the field there are 2,535 balls -- one for every hit Derek Jeter has had in his 13 seasons in the majors. The contestants must run out, grab as many balls as they can, and throw them at the photo of an opponent. When a target is hit by 316 balls, that contestant is out. 316 is Derek's career batting average so far. Sami adds that the winning team will have celebrity chef Curtis Stone personally cook lunch for them. And they'll get a two-pound advantage at the weigh-in. They can split it up and give two players a one-pound advantage, or give one player a two-pound advantage. Abby has to sit out because of her injury, so the Blue Team must choose someone to sit out. They choose Tracey.
