We then catch up with Sunny, who talks with some of her friends about how being overweight has affected her life. Her friends are happy to see her so radiant and full of self-confidence, and finally realizing how beautiful she is. Sunny admits to hating herself at various points in times and doing things that were self-destructive. At one point, she even tried purging, but was thankfully unsuccessful. The fact that she never talked about it hurt her even worse, and Sunny and her friends talk about how it's a difficult, but possibly necessary subject to broach. They're a nice supportive little group and Sunny appreciates them. Group hug!
Biingo, meanwhile, talks to her sister Faith, who is 19. This is apparently in itself an unusual occurrence. She tells him that it's inspiring to her to see him with so much confidence. She's proud and loves him, even though she doesn't tell him all that often. Biingo appreciates it and loves her too. Faith eloquently states that you can always change your lifestyle, and it's inspiring to see someone younger than you do something that you didn't even have the courage to do. Biingo hopes that they can have more heart to hearts in the future, and I think he's glad to be in something other than the role of the annoying little bro.
And then Jackson works with the kids at the non-profit organization where he volunteers, teaching a class about goal-setting. His goal, of course, is to lose five percent of his body weight while still doing all the volunteering that he loves so much. Cut to Gina, who sort of rambles around aimlessly at Planet Fitness. She knows she has to learn to be her own trainer and motivator, but is uncomfortable with it. Jeff jogs outside and lays out his exercise mat in his bedroom. Danni works her two jobs, and says that finding the time to get her workouts in is going to be a real struggle. Joe and his brother, Henry, challenge each other and trade tips and tricks. With 24 hours until the weigh-in, Danni takes a jog, Joe and Jackson hit the elliptical, Gina lifts weights and Jeff uses his in-room equipment. They're all going for the five percent target knowing that if they don't hit it, they have a good chance of continuing their stay at home permanently.
The contestants head back to the ranch, with supportive send-offs from their family and friends. Meanwhile, the trainers wait anxiously in the weigh-in room and wonder how their peeps will do. Jillian says that it's the time to put up or shut up. She never seems to go the way of the latter herself, does she? God, but she can wear skinny jeans. Sami reminds everyone of the five percent challenge, which will garner immunity. Whoever misses the goal will be up for elimination. Bob remembers how dramatic it was last year when everyone except for Chism got immunity. Isn't it crazy that there was once a human named Chism? Maybe he and Biingo can become pen pals. If Whitney Houston were alive and weighed 300 pounds, do you think she would come on this show and go by Nippy?
