Everyone is pretty happy about their awesome feel-good job. Until, that is, they're on the bus home. It actually looks like a city bus, too. They get home just before 6:00, and head to the gym. They have only 45 minutes until the gym closes. All right, then. My gym, which is a YMCA, stays open until at least 8:00 or 9:00 every night. I call shenanigans! At the designated closing time, the lights just cut off. Nice.
Day two of work week kicks off. It's cold and rainy, which takes a little of the fun out of giving poor people food. The Losers go to a distribution site and bag fruits and vegetables for people in need. O'Neal almost gets an eye taken out by some lady's umbrella. They head home on the bus, work out, and the lights go off. Day three brings the same story. At noon, Sam realizes that he forgot his lunch. Stephanie says that there's a vending machine out there. Can these bitches not share their food with him? And, I mean, also, they're at the food bank. They're literally surrounded by food. Oh, wait. AS IT HAPPENS, there's a SUBWAY right around the corner. Those fuckers.
The week continues, and under the pressure of working and working out, Cheryl and Sherry totally become menopausal lesbian lovers. That's one way to burn some extra calories when the gym is closed! They're worried that they might be wrenched apart by the next weigh-in and corresponding vote, but remind one another to be strong and not to give up. Because you can do anything you set your mind to, including pulling an 18-wheeler or switching teams at midlife.
The contestants complete day five of work week, and are tired. Stephanie totally tattles to Jillian that Sam forgot his lunch. But thankfully there was a Subway. They JUST HAD THIS PRODUCT PLACEMENT! Another one so soon? Really?
Last chance workout! The gym is closing in two hours, which seems like plenty of time for Jillian to give her patented beatings. Bob administers beatings, too. And, you know, unless Dr. Phillian makes an appearance there's only so much recapping you can really do during a last chance workout. The biggest excitement is that Michael pukes. Also, Sam worries that he's plateauing. To keep his intensity going, he must engage with extended animal kingdom metaphors. Sam is a lion, everyone. Take note. Tonight, Jillian was his prey. He pounced on her and took her back home to the family. "Eat up," he says. Okay, things are starting to get weird. Lance also likes animal metaphors, and says that breaking 300 pounds is kind of like having an animal and an electric fence. 300 pounds is his electric fence. Okay, that makes absolutely no sense. Now the electricity's off, apparently. For the fence, not the gym. But that too eventually, I guess.
