The teams are suspended 50 feet in the air and Coleen starts freaking out a little. Each team holds on to its own weight on this complicated contraption. It's a lot of poundage all around. Amy C. has burning hands that soon become numb. It might be good or it might be bad, but it's helpful, since she can't feel the pain. At 30 minutes, everyone's still in. Sami announces that one member of each team is going to have to let go and the teams have a minute to decide who. Michelle volunteers to let go for the Black Team, and Vicky lets go for Blue. The task gets immediately harder for Phil, who is positioned next to Michelle. Eventually he lets go and Coleen and Renee are holding all of the weight. The Blue Team is feeling pretty good. Coleen freaks out and lets go and Renee is totally holding 900 pounds by herself. She's an iron woman. But soon she has to let go and the Black Team goes flying. The Blue Team has won. Amy says that she loves the Black Team and Heba pipes in by saying, "I hate them, actually." The Lord loveth righteousness, I guess. The Black Team has some serious fears about the upcoming weigh-in, and for good reason. Sami tells the Blue Team that they'll have until the weigh-in to decide whose weight won't count for the Black Team.
Back at the house, the Blue Team celebrates. They also discuss who they should knock out and do some math in the process. The Blue Team deduces that the Black Team will think that they'll take out Phil, but in fact that's not the best strategy. So it's one of the ladies. They've all been pretty consistent, so Vicky suggests that her team go by the math. And we will learn what that math is later in the episode.
The Black Team sits around and relaxes for a minute, and gets a visit from Jillian. She learns that her team lost the challenge, and that the Blue Team will be choosing one of her teammates to sit out. She's concerned, and says that they'll probably pick Phil or Renee. But no matter what, they have to focus on losing weight and getting healthy, and what will be will be. She knows that her team tried their hardest, and that's what matters. And now it's time to get back in the gym. Meanwhile, Extra Polar Ice Gum is a great alternative to snacking on sweets! Live it, learn it, love it.
