The first quarter tests speed, and the contestants will compete in a shuttle race, which involves running to a series of cones, touching them, and running back. Alex represents the Blue Team, Danni is for the White, and Francelina competes for the Red Team. And Danni wins the first quarter! Alex is in second place, and Francelina in third. The various times are posted, and there's only six seconds separating first and third place, so it's still anyone's game. The second quarter tests agility, and Danni competes again for White, Cate for Red, and Gina for Blue. The ladies run through the agility course, and Danni once again wins! Cate comes in second, with Gina taking third place. White is in first place at 1:34, Red has 1:41, and Blue holds third also with 1:41.
The third quarter is about strength, and involves the thing where you hit that fake football guy and drag him for a while. Does this make any sense to anyone? Nate plays for White, Jeff for Blue, and Lisa for Red. Jeff wins this quarter for the Blue Team, while White takes second. Poor Lisa is really struggling with this one, but finally crosses the finish line with much encouragement. Triumph of the spirit! After three quarters, the White Team is holding to the lead by only four seconds. The Red Team is pretty far behind now, in a distant third place.
And so we have reached the fourth quarter, which tests speed, agility and strength altogether. Nate is going again for the White Team, former football player Joe plays for Red, and Mike is going for the Blue Team. Mike misses a box in his ropes agility course and has to start over, which loses him some time. Joe really rocks this challenge, coming in first by quite a bit. Nate finishes second, and though he's having a hard time going back through the ropes course, Mike finishes strong for Blue. And the winner is...the White Team! Sunny gets the Play60 Super School visit and a $5,000 grant for her school. The school that hosted this challenge also gets a grant!
With game time shenanigans over, it's time for more working out! Things are getting heated in Dolvett's Dungeon. He reminds us of the second week plateau, when people can no longer rely on losing 35 pounds of water. Since the red line is in play again, there is a lack of strategery and a whole bunch of hard work. Gina daintily wields a sledgehammer, and Bob has to remind her that she is not at The Biggest Loser resort and spa. While everyone else has fun outside, Jillian's team is in the gym. She's stopped the yelling, thank God, and commends Nate on what a quick learner he is. He's been thinking about why he chose to be fat, and says that he's never really been good at anything and his weight was an excuse. Now he's realized that just as it's a choice to be fat, it's a choice to spend your time becoming great at something. Jillian totally wants to French him for saying that. While Nate is getting kudos, Pam is starting to cry on the treadmill. She stops and hyperventilates. This is the perfect time to learn Pam's life story! She's a single mom with a 19-year old daughter who lives in Manhattan. Pam loves to laugh, but her laughter is hiding a lot of pain. She wants her daughter to be proud of her, which is one of the reasons she's on the ranch. Pam wants to take a short break before continuing on her exercise machine, but Jillian gives a calm veto. Pam sucks it up, and completes her exercise. Triumph of the spirit!
