It all comes down to the dessert. Curtis tries the Blue Team's raspberries with a dark chocolate drizzle first. Sami wonders if Sunshine saw Curtis teach contestants on a past season how to make this very dessert. She did, and Curtis praises her for keeping the dessert to 92 calories. Stephanie describes the Black Team's dessert of warm, carmelized pears, half an ounce of goat cheese, and a strawberry drizzle. Curtis says that it's an interesting attempt, and they did a good job of it. Stephanie guesses that there are just under 100 calories in the dessert. Curtis announces that, in fact, there are only 60! That's a winner! The Black Team has won the challenge and the five-pound advantage. Morale, boosted.
Jillian meets her team and learns of their five-pound advantage. She's psyched, but tells them not to take it for granted. Meanwhile, members of the Blue Team eat Subway sandwiches in silence. Bob greets them and learns that Michael left campus because his grandmother is sick, and that they lost the challenge. He is not psyched and spits a sarcastic, "Thanks, Curtis Stone." Now, Bob, don't get pissy just because he's prettier than you. The Blue Team has some work to do.
Hour two starts with even more product placement. Milk, this time. It does a body good, etc. And then it's time for the last chance workout! Bob beats the Blue Team. Jillian says that it's game on. She feels confident in their five-pound advantage, but it's still beatings as usual. Sam hits the punching bag so hard that he breaks it. Sherry points out that she's the only mom left on the ranch, which is quite an accomplishment. She's there to stay, and thinks she can win it. Koli can pass the 100 pound mark this week, and get under 300 pounds. And judging by the ferocity with which he's working out, he'll do it. There's lots of cross-team smack talk, competitive fire, and sweat. Daris wants to avenge his mom, and crawls on the floor with Bob lying on top of him. He winds up with a lot of calories burned, and no skin on his elbows. Yikes.
Michael returns to the campus, looking pretty down. He says that his grandma's on a ventilator and can't breathe on her own. It doesn't look good. One of the last messages that Mike's grandma sent to him was to kick ass. She wants what's best for him, and what's best is for him to be on campus. He tells his teammates that he made time to work out twice a day while he was away, which is pretty impressive. O'Neal tells him that he balanced his family with his goals, which is something that all the others will have to deal with as well. They're proud of him, and supportive, and Mike thanks them for that.
