The challenge begins, and the Blue Team takes a huge lead. The Black Team can't even get their truck to move. Let Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow be your motivation! (And seriously, she should be a consultant for this show, because holy shit. I put an ad on Craig's List, trying to find a devil to sell my soul to so I can not only be that amazing but look that amazing when I'm 58. Or now.) The Black Team finally gets their truck to move, and Stephanie hopes that the Blue guys are too dumb to figure out the puzzle. O'Neal and his bum knee is the puzzle picker upper, and has a hard time keeping up with the rest of the Blue Team. And then the Black Team catches up! Until it's time to move the truck again. But then again with O'Neal's slowness! He was the wrong person to pick for that job.
With two sets of puzzle pieces collected, the race is pretty close. But then O'Neal gets a magic and timely burst of energy. The Blue Team picks up the rest of the puzzle pieces and once again takes the lead. Both teams cross the finish line and have to assemble their puzzles. Sami insists that they're neck and neck, though I'm not sure that that's strictly true. And even if it is, the Blue Team wins. There is much celebration, except from the Black Team. Free groceries for a year, suckers! Koli cites this victory as evidence that the Black Team should be skurred. Sam reminds us that if you don't win the weigh-in, the only thing you actually get is a free trip home. Also, in this case, groceries. Though it's probably just ground turkey and gum.
A commercial tells us that Toyota is now offering us their "biggest thank you ever." Oooh, brakes that work! How special!
When we return, Bob meets with his team. There's a bit of sadness that Miggy is gone, but happiness that O'Neal has joined them. The contestants explain to the trainers that this is "work week." Jillian, as always, is pissed. Bob actually thinks it's a good exercise to prepare them to go back to the real world. He says that he gets that the last thing you want to do after a long day at the office is to go to the gym. Tell me about it, sister. But, he says, you have to pull yourself up by the bootstraps (or the sneaker laces) and do it. The contestants head off to the gym, with the exception of Sunshine and O'Neal. They're newer, and haven't had to endure a product placement session yet. That all changes as Bob introduces them to Biggest Loser Protein Powder. Goes great with an Extra Sugar Free Gum chaser!
