What have I done today to make me feel proud? Well, I took a delicious antibiotic to help me continue to get rid of my pneumonia. WTF, lungs?
The Blue Team hangs out in the house awaiting the return of the Black Team and corresponding news of who's eliminated. Sadly for Daris, it was Cheryl who got the boot. His curly mop goes straight for a moment in despair. Also, he fights back tears. Stephanie tells him that everyone has grown attached to Cheryl, and they're really going to miss her. Daris kind of takes it in stride, and then goes to his room to be sad in solitude.
The next day, the contestants head to the gym where Sami awaits them. There are two podiums with buzzers, and Koli rues the fact that they're going to have to deal with trivia questions. He says, "Now it's more about smarts than it is about physical strength. I am in trouble." He just told us that he's dumb! Which is a dumb thing to do, and so proves his point. Sami tells the contestants that in the two months they've been on campus they should have learned the most important lesson of the competition: if you want to change your body, first you have to change your mind. And change into a sports bra. Sami continues that the more you know the more successful you'll be, which shall be proven in today's pop challenge. It is indeed head-to-head trivia, one Blue versus one Black Team member per question. The questions are based on information found in [warning: product placement] the newest Biggest Loser book, Six Weeks to a Healthier You. It contains much of the same information found in the book, Six Weeks to a Healthier Ewe, but with less shearing.
Each contestant who answers a question correctly gets a point for his or her team. If a contestant gets the answer wrong, the opposing team gets a chance to answer it for a point. The first team to get three points will win. Stephanie is confident that the Black Team has an advantage, because boys are dumb. The team that wins will win an overnight trip to the Four Seasons, replete with a gourmet meal and luxury spa treatments. Ashley is convincing with her logic that after eight weeks of sweating and puking and generally being disgusting, she wants a freaking facial. But wait! Sami tells the contestants that the losing team must stay on campus and clean the kitchen. The entire group recoils in horror. Apparently they have a messy-ass kitchen. Ooh, burn, they have to clean the gym too. O'Neal does not like the prospect of wiping up his own crusted-on sweat from the gym floor. Everyone has plenty of motivation to win this one.
