Then it's time for another Thanksgiving tip from the skinny lady. Just cook a turkey breast instead of the whole bird. Take of the skin, then rub it down with some splices and whatnot. She throws some pears and onions in, and generally pretends as if stuffing doesn't exist. STUFFING EXISTS! You can't erase it from our collective consciousness! Occupy bird cavity!
We then get a little spot with Jerry and Estella, our favorite old folks! Sorry, Bonnie, but it's true. Remember how Jerry almost died, then went home and got really skinny? He and Estella are still fit as skeletons! They're very active in various organizations and their community. Both are 66 years old, and say that if they can do it, so can we. Sami reminds us that losing weight is possible for everyone, but it's not easy. Sunny of course knows that, because she got to go home to Texas for a week with Bob in tow. Remember how John had a nervous breakdown about it? That's, like, every week, I know. Sami and Bob talk for a while about how sexually attractive he was in a cowboy hat.
Then it's time for an update on O'Neal, who was on the show a short time ago with his daughter, Sunshine. He's dressed like a Blues Brother, and is still kind of a big guy. Bob loves O'Neal, and says that he's one of the most special people ever to come into the Biggest Loser house. Back when we first saw him he was so broken that he had to have his wife tie his shoes. Bob was not about to stand for that. They connected, in part because O'Neal connects with everyone. He has started a fitness resort in Houston, runs a non-profit and is also involved in his community. He says that not everyone can come on the ranch, but everyone deserves the same happiness that he had there.
Sami says again that the Biggest Loser is a family, and asks O'Neal to speak to why that is. He says that they all have camaraderie because they want to get healthy and get better. They are just as individual as fingers on a hand, but come together and make a fist, because that's what you fight with. Sami has never heard that analogy before, and is blown away. And then I am blown away, because Sami says that Tongan Sam (who proposed to fellow contestant Stephanie last year) was recently injured in a terrible accident, and O'Neal starts to cry. They keep talking about this terrible accident but never say what it is, and so I put trusty Google to use and discovered that Sam actually fell four stories from an apartment building! Holy shit. O'Neal talked to Sam, who is apparently doing all right. He says that Sam's ongoing recovery is nothing short of a miracle, and that Sam is a warrior. Sami adds that Sam is a trainer at Fitness Ridge, and always stops by the ranch to say hello to the contestants. He's a big part of the Biggest Loser family who has a big heart and is a fighter. She introduces a clip package of Sam, which allows time for everyone to Google for further details.
