Before we learn who he chooses, we check in with Francelina, who looks FABULOUS. She's lost almost 100 pounds, and is feeling confident and happy and just glowing all over. What a gorgeous and delightful human!
Back in the show proper, Jeff actually volunteers to go off the ranch, sparing Jackson from having to make an actual decision. Jeff thinks that Jackson makes a good trainer, and also maybe just wants to get away from Gina for a few days. Ali reminds everyone that they'll have to face some other sorts of fears this week, just because we are all better off when Gina is continuously within a nanosecond of a freakout.
Jackson and Jeff arrive at their designated witness protection program house in L.A. I thought they were going to Jackson's ACTUAL home, which would have been more fun. They're in a non-descript ranch house with bare cupboards, a grocery budget, and bicycles. There's a little backyard pool, and a few other pieces of exercise equipment. Both acknowledge that this is going to be difficult, largely because it looks so freaking boring.
The trainers then check in with the kids! Lindsay tells Dolvett that her biggest fear is getting diabetes. We are reminded that she's pre-diabetic, and Dolvett tells her that he's going to introduce her to an ACTUAL diabetic. PLEASE LET IT BE BRET MICHAELS!!! Wrong type of diabetes, I know, but I don't even care. Biingo's biggest fear, it turns out, is vegetables. Bob thinks this is crazy, but then again he's never been attacked by a Brussels sprout. Biingo's mom talks with Bob about how Biingo thought that broccoli came from a FACTORY (!!!!!!!!!), and Bob says that he's going to send her some Jessica Seinfeld-esque plagiarized recipes that involve pureeing and hiding veggies in, like, cake. Sunny then tells Jillian that she's afraid her obese mother will die. Soooooooo, wow. Jillian hopes that when Sunny's mom hears this, she'll be able to put aside her own fear and love of butter enough to go take a walk once in a while. Sunny is NOT looking forward to having this discussion (especially on camera, I'd imagine), even though it's a necessary one.
Meanwhile, Jeff and Jackson go shopping. Jeff is tempted by the chips, but Jackson assures us that the two boys are keeping each other in check. They imagine what life on the ranch is like, and assume it involves Gina threatening to leave and Danni running a 10K. Jeff talks about how he used to be a lazy slob, and once spent 4.5 days consecutively watching nine whole seasons of a TV show. If you throw in about 40 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies and a lap cat, that sounds like my dream vacation. But apparently it's bad? Now I feel like I'm getting mixed messages. Jeff says that his biggest fear is to be in his 40's and realize that he's a failure who hates his own life. Well, join the club, kid. He and Jackson toast their water bottles and eat their healthy sugar-free cereals with aplomb.
