And then there's Mark and Jay. Mark makes a "You've got mail" joke, which is fitting. They get cards from their wives and kids, and Mark starts to cry. Dan and Jackie get some pictures, and Jackie announces tearily that she's homesick. Dan has to wipe away a tear, too. Brittany shows Bernie pictures of her family, and Bernie is happy to have received a card from his adorable bulldog. We also get to see photos of Trent's unbelievably cute baby, as well as a photo of Roger's wedding to his smoking hot wife. He gets choked up as he says he was at his highest weight ever on his wedding day. Trent tells him that he's making it right. Roger doesn't want to be a fat dad anymore -- he wants to be a role model for his son. Maggie gets a funny letter from her brother, who cracks on her cleaning skills. Jenn gets a letter from her parents, which includes a photo of her with her grandfather who passed away a few years ago. He always wanted to see Jenn healthy, and Jenn's parents know that he would be proud and is still looking out for her. Oh, now I'm getting choked up, too. This show kills me sometimes. Ali gets a very touching letter from...her sister? Her lady lover? I don't know, but whoever it is wants Ali to know that she's worth it. Maybe she actually just got some L'Oreal samples and is reading the back of the packaging?
Okay, enough with the sentimental shit. It's time for the weigh-in! Dan acknowledges that he didn't break his neck this week, because of the whole throw-the-weigh-in factor. Jay knows that if the Yellow Team isn't below the yellow line, it's the Black Team that's going home. Sami greets the teams, and notes that the Yellow Team, having been the biggest losers at the last weigh-in, have the additional two-pound loss. Mark is pretty surprised, and thinks that things are looking bad for him and Jay. The giant mega-team will all weigh first, and their total percentage will be figured out, and then Paul and Kelly will weigh in. Sami announces that there will be a fat-ass (pardon the pun) prize for the biggest losers of the week: IMMUNITY. All those alliance schemers are tentatively regretting their shenanigans right about now, I would say. Jay, with his Corky Thatcher haircut, has a glimmer of hope, and Kelly realizes that this shoots a lot of holes in their original plan.
