Meanwhile, Bob visits Vinny in his room and looks at a picture of Vinny with his foxy fiancé. She apparently has a kid, and Vinny says that he wants to be the best dad and husband that he can be. Bob points out that the Vinny in the picture was facing death. Vinny pretended to be fine, but he obviously wasn't. Bob says that Vinny has been thinking of himself in a self-destructive way, and now has a responsibility to accept the unconditional love from his fiancé and her son that will keep him on track. Vinny plays a song that he wrote about his fiancé, which is a rumination on the theme of how going through hard stuff can lead you to something beautiful. Bob taps his foot in approval. Maybe Vinny can start a band with country singer Dan from seasons past. They can call themselves "Pride on Three" and have a song called "Pride on Three," like when the band Big Country had a song called "Big Country" and it blew everyone's mind.
Anna has her team members run around on the tennis court some more, and it turns out that Sunny and Ramon can actually play tennis now. Ramon says that it's a great workout, and smashes the gym. Sometimes I think that Anna was paid a huge sum by the USTA to be a trainer on this show for one season. Elsewhere, Dolvett and John do some football drills. John is a coach, and is excited that he can now do the drills himself. He must be one of those scary intense high school coaches who, like, throws chairs and shit. Still, he's looking forward to working with the bigger guys on his team in particular, and wants to show his students what's possible.
The trainers make Thanksgiving dinner for everyone, despite the fact that it must have been, like, July when they filmed this. The Biggest Loser cookbooks are prominently on display! Everyone talks about what they're thankful for. Ramon is thankful for elliptical machines and finding the love of his life, Jessica. He's also thankful for his cute little baby niece. Vinny was raised in an abusive family, and always wanted to have a great dad and somebody to love. He's thankful that he'll get to become a father, and says that the other contestants has changed his life in many ways. Bob prompts him to talk about his bad family life some more, and Vinny cries. Do we have to Phillianize people during fake Thanksgiving dinner, even?
Bob then says that he's thankful for how The Biggest Loser has changed his life. He grew up on a farm in Tennessee, and says that his family never had a lot of money. He's close with his sister, and says that Sunny reminds him of her. His sister has struggled with weight her whole life, which has been heartbreaking for Bob. When he was in Texas with Sunny, it reminded him of how his sister is also a woman who sits on the sidelines while lots of other active people are around her. He's tried to reach his sister with tough love, and with sympathy, but says that at the end o the day he can't want it for her -- he simply has to be there when she's ready for it. Bob hopes that his sister will see Sunny and get inspired. I'm sure she's just loving that he's shared this with the world. Should be an interesting Thanksgiving dinner at Bob's house! Still, as Antone tells us, it's nice to see Bob share a little bit of his personal dirt.
