The Red Team then heads to the gym where they meet Heisman Trophy winner and Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. Ramon is the most excited that I've ever seen a human. The Red folks do all kinds of exercises, and Tim's extreme ripped-ness is on full display. He wants to make a difference with the Red Team, and push them to do more than they thought possible. It does seem to motivate the youngsters. Vinny, meanwhile, is angling to get under 400 pounds as Dolvett punches his voluminous stomach. Does that really help with weight loss? Dolvett tells us that Patrick consistently gives about 85 percent, and that his biggest setback is the way he perceives himself. Once he starts believing in himself, his body will follow. Tim shares his favorite saying: "Hard work beats talent when talent don't work as hard." He says that he knew that there would be bigger, stronger and faster people out there, but no one was going to work as hard. He tells the Red Team members not to let anyone outwork them, and that they haven't yet reached their potential.
After the workout, Dolvett has a one-on-one with Vinny to figure out the missing piece of his story. Vinny says that when he was a kid, his stepdad whipped him with an extension cord. When he went to school with bruises and welts, a friend noted that this was more than your average whooping. That's when Vinny knew that his home life was different. We see pictures of young Vinny, who looks like the sweetest kid ever. He started gaining weight at nine, when his stepfather really started the abuse, and by the time he was eleven he was 230 pounds. By eighth grade he was 300 pounds. Vinny tells us that maybe he thought that if he got bigger, his stepdad couldn't hurt him anymore. He thought that he had faced his demons, but tells Dolvett that he never really forgave his mom for letting it happen. When his stepfather broke his nose, Vinny's mother asked what he had done to provoke it. He can't let that go, and doesn't understand why his mom let it happen. At that young age, Vinny says, he felt like a worthless piece of junk. He wants to find a way to forgive his mom and get over it, but knows that it will be difficult. He says he'd just like to know what was going through her head.
