Oh! But remember how Kelly and Paul are last week's biggest losers? This means that they, too, get to hike to the top of the mountain and pick an envelope marked family, luxury, or gameplay. Paul is all about gameplay, though Kelly could use a massage or two. They compromise -- which, Paul notes, is what people in successful relationships, unlike theirs, do -- and agree that if they are the biggest losers again, they'll take the luxury. Their gameplay prize is great -- they get to take an additional two pounds off of their weight loss at a weigh-in of their choice. That will clearly be the impending weigh-in.
Meanwhile, Bob and Jillian meet all of the teams minus Yellow and, of course, the eliminated White. Everyone explains to the trainers what's going on, including the fact that Jillian will be training the Yellow Team exclusively. Jillian feels horrible to be in the difficult position of 1) bearing responsibility for the Yellow Team's weight loss and, if they are eliminated, having it on her conscience; and 2) working against all the other teams that she's become close with. She's doubly attractive when she's conflicted. Bob tells us that, with this cockamamie all-versus-one thing, the game is on. I thought they game was on last week when they voted out Curtis and Mallory? Bob needs a new sound byte.
Oooh! There was just a little thing on the bottom of the screen saying that they're now casting teams of two for the next season! YES!
As Paul puts on his Sergeant Pepper kung-fu outfit, Kelly gently notes that it's a little tight. She interviews that she and Paul have been divorced for one year and separated for longer than that. She's been trying to avoid having to rely on him, but now that it's them against everyone else, she's forced to. Jillian enters their room and tells them that she's flattered, then sees Paul in his outfit and gives him a big hug. She interviews that being chosen to go home put Paul and Kelly on the defensive, and instead of trying to smooth that over, they're exacerbating the problem. With a mind toward the extended future of the game, she doesn't want Paul and Kelly to alienate themselves from the other players, because it could lead to eventual booting. She's for continued fraternization. Kelly and Paul, however, are still in Sergeant Pepper warrior mode.
Paul and Kelly enter the gym and greet the other teams, but opt not to disclose their prize. Wise! Bob, not wanting to be shown up by Jillian again, is prepared to push his big mushed combined team really, really hard. Ali notes that the all-versus-one has turned Bob into a maniac. He's flipped a nut, and she's scared for her life. Jillian is pushing Kelly really hard, too, to the point where I think Kelly has burst every blood vessel in her face. Jillian appears to work Paul equally hard, and tells us that she does her best work one-on-one, so she's going to make the most of it for all involved.
