We begin the show with an extended intro that rehashes what's happened in the past nine weeks (Fatties! Screaming! Tonnage lost!) and then informs us that there are nine weeks remaining on the show. I am going to need a lot of packs of Extra Sugar Free gum if I'm to survive this.
It is night on campus. The Blue Team shuffles in after voting off Dane. Mike thinks that voting off Dane is the best thing that could have happened, because he's a huge threat. And he got the opportunity to go home and run a marathon in his mind, so everybody wins. Tara commences the breakdown process, lamenting the fact that her buddy is gone. She tells Aubrey and Mandi that this was really stupid on their part, which: true that. Mandi realizes that she's probably next on the block if her new Blue comrades fall below the yellow line. Cathy confirms that she, Kristin and Ron are going to stick together. Sione comforts Mandi, who knows that if she doesn't perform her days are numbered.
The contestants head to a cooking school called Chefs, Inc. Tara says that none of them knew what was going to happen. Um, I would take a gander that maybe they're going to cook something. Celebrity chef and Biggest Loser favorite Rocco DiSpirito welcomes the gang and announces that he's going to give them a lecture about fast food. To wit: it's bad for us, and we love it. Mike worked at a fast food restaurant and ate three meals a day there, while Filipe can eat a whole bucket of fried chicken by himself. My hog of a cat, Nula, can also do that, so I'm not particularly impressed. Rocco then tries to terrify everyone about pizza. 500 calories a slice and 27 grams of fat or no, you can't take away my saucy, cheesy joy. Rocco holds up a heaping spoonful of fat equal to that in the aforementioned pizza slice. It looks just like a spoonful of delicious frosting, so I am not deterred. Ron is all, "I know this already because, duh, I'm really fat." Now Rocco must continue to make me feel bad by telling the ugly truth about Taco Bell. Burritos apparently have a whole lot of calories. But they're so delicious! I think I eat at least three burritos a week. Cheeseburgers are even worse, and that's without the fries! With a burger and fries, you get an ice cream bowl of fat. Even when you try to pretend it's frosting, that's gross.
