We are reminded that Dolvett has only John left on the Red Team, and so failure is not an option -- even more than usual! John also doesn't want Dolvett to lose his job, probably because he wants to make out with him eventually, just like the rest of us. Antone works extra hard, as he is getting bonus motivation from his monetary prize. Becky is the smallest person in the house, and also the oldest. She notes that she has to work very hard not to fall below the yellow line again. Vinny has lost 91 pounds thus far, and Bob is gunning to get him to 100. He notes that Vinny should have hit that mark weeks ago. Bob is full of opinions, as he also notes to Antone that John is never going to rest, and never be satisfied, until he makes it to the finals. He notes that he doesn't celebrate each week on the scale, because he hasn't achieved his goal. Antone says that if you don't celebrate and don't think you've achieved anything, you're eventually going to pack on the pounds again. Bob agrees, and says -- mark his words! -- that John will gain everything back. At least we have something to look forward to for the "Where Are They Now?" special next year.
Speaking of John, he's enjoying the pain that Dolvett is unleashing upon him. They push a truck tire back and forth for a while, as men are wont to do, and Dolvett tells us that with Bonnie gone, John has retreated back to his lonesome island of walls. Dolvett wants to bond with John, and opens with the fact that John doesn't show appreciation on the scale. This makes Dolvett feel like the work they put in isn't good enough. John fights for his right to be genuinely disappointed, and Dolvett points out that losing 19 pounds in two weeks is pretty good. He wants John's walls to come down, and also fears that John's extremity will be his undoing. John also concedes that his exacting standards may lead him to put on weight again, but says that champions have high goals and he feels like there's some much he can do. He's starting to sound like a total mental case, and even cries as he tells us that a nine pound loss isn't good enough because he took someone else's spot. I'm not totally sure what he's talking about, but it's weird.
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.
