Helen is next. She says this is the hardest decision she's ever had to make, which seems a bit hyperbolic. She's crying and tells Bob that she loves him, but she chose Jillian. Sione is shocked. He interviews that he sends good luck to her because she'll need it. Kristin is next to choose. She gives both trainers props, and says that Jillian's track record is amazing, but it's Bob's year. So she's decided to stay with him. Kristin reminds us that she used to be REALLY fat -- 360 pounds to be exact -- and Bob has turned her into a babe. How could she leave him now? Bob tells Kristin that they'll lose the 100 pounds if it kills them. Kristin says it will kill them. Filipe is next and, in rapture, chooses Bob. Duh. Then there's Sione. He makes a big dramatic production per usual and chooses Bob. Jillian tries way too hard to be nice and says that she totally understands. Ron also is staying with Bob. Jillian could care less about that one.
Then there's Laura. She says that she watched past seasons and always wanted to have Jillian as her trainer. And then she saw how much everybody loved Bob. She almost felt jealous, because it was a lovefest on the other side of the gym while she was being verbally abused. However, she's gotten past it. Jillian has helped her a lot, and so she's decided to stick with her. Jillian gives Laura a big hug and whispers that she's honored that Laura trusts her and trusts the process. What process? Laura gives Jillian props for all that she's done, and says that she can live with the "training only" relationship that they've developed. Finally there's Aubrey. Bob lit a fire under her too, and she wants to continue feeling the burn on her butt. So she's chosen Bob as well. That leaves the trainers almost even in terms of their trainees.
The contestants work out furiously in the gym. Original team colors, motivation, squats, water from a Brita filter, etc. Sione, Kristin, and Tara are all on the cusp of hitting 100 pounds. For Kristin and Tara this is a big deal, since they are vying to be the first woman to have lost 100 pounds on campus. Kristin notices that Bob is giving a lot of attention to Filipe and Sione, and tells him that she needs him to help her make it happen, and then she can achieve her dream of becoming a motivational speaker. Bob tells her that he'll do everything he can for her.
