Hannah tells us that she was a volleyball player, and so knows a little something about keeping balls in the air. The teams start with their first giant balls, and as it turns out this task is harder than you think. Try walking across your house while doing this same thing with a balloon. The Red Team is first to figure out a team strategy, and they get their first ball across the field. The Black Team has made absolutely no progress, and would do well to stop for a minute and watch the Red Team to get some ideas. As the Red Team gets their third ball in, the Black Team lets their first ball touch the ground at the five yard line. Despite what Sami says, there is no hope for them. They do eventually get one ball in, which is cold, saggy comfort. The Red Team wins handily. Austin says that it was important to make sure that the Black Team didn't get the three-pound advantage, and now they must focus on making sure the weigh-in goes their way.
Back at the house, the Black Team dwells on their losing situation. Marci notes that the Black Team has beaten the Red Team twice at the last weigh-ins, so the odds are against them. As far as she's concerned, their priority should be on making sure that the right person falls below the Dreadline. Marci and Deni are particularly worried about their daughters going home, and are actually considering throwing the weigh-in so they land below the Dreadline. This could quite possibly also mean that the Black Team will lose the weigh-in and will have to vote someone else off. Marci and Deni are curious where Jesse stands on the notion of sacrificing himself so that Arthur can stay. Jesse says that they've talked about it, and they believe in themselves. He doesn't see them falling below the Dreadline. People get really judgey about this situation, which I think is whack. Arthur says that in his perfect world, they'll win. Marci asks what will happen if they don't win. Arthur says of course he's not going to vote off his dad, and then starts crying at being forced to say that he'd vote off Deni or Marci.
