And then it's time to jump to Bob, who's visiting his great white hope -- Ron -- in South Lyon, Michigan. Bob seems disgusted that he has to do this even though he has no chance of being the winning trainer this season. Ron is pleased to see Bob, as are Mike and Max. Ron tells Bob that, unexpectedly, shopping has proved to be a big challenge. He then tells Bob about the marathon. Bob also can't believe it. He says that Ron shouldn't put himself through a challenge of that magnitude. Bob then asks Max what it's like to be around such a great support system. Max doesn't seem all that psyched about it. Mike also tells Bob that, since he's not a trainer, he doesn't really know what to do with Max. Bob tells us that Max is like the third member of the Brown team. He wants to see what makes Max tick. Thus, Max is going to partake in a workout with Bob. Is this safe without a Dr. Huizenga check-up? Max is younger than Michael, and also bigger than Michael, and Ron says that his mission is to see Max be as successful as Mike was. Max, even though he seems like he might keel over, really likes Bob and doesn't want to let him down. He barfs, which is always good times.
Back at the house, Bob asks Max to go out and get whatever he'd normally eat on the weekend. Max goes for a burger, fries and a milkshake. Buzzkill Bob says that there is little to no nutritional value in any of that food. He cuts the burger in half, portions out the fries and puts the milkshake into two little shot glasses, saying that that's representative of the 600 calories that ideally makes up lunch. Max is not impressed. Oh, but you know where you can get a whole lot of food for your 600 calories? That's right: Subway! Max is the new Jared. Bob sees a lot of potential in Max, and Max is in love with Bob. As you do.
