Back at the house, there is a different kind of mud to wade through: the mud of strategery. Kim, Cassandra and Emily approach Conda about the potential of an alliance geared toward a four-lady finale. However, Conda's relationships with some of the men are much deeper, so she goes and tells them almost instantly. Buddy points out that there's no way that Conda would vote off her brother. He knows that he's a threat and appreciates the gamesmanship aspect, though thinks it was poor planning on Emily and Cassandra's part. Conda has no plans to go against the dudes. Buddy discusses this new information with Mark and Jeremy, who also think the scheming ladies are dunderheads. Conda is not only keeping her loyalties to the Red Team men, but is also now a mole for the men.
With that, it's last chance workout time! Dolvett shills for Larabars. Bob works the Red Team in the gym. Kim is a crazy competitive person, and has to do everything that Mark does, but better. Cassandra tries to send invisible brain waves to Bob encouraging him to sabotage the Red Team. Said brain waves are not successful. Meanwhile, Chris is still kind of a pain in the ass who is not working as hard as she could be.
After a break, it's weigh-in time. The Red Team and their two-pound advantage weigh in first. Mark goes from 215 to 213, for a loss of 2 pounds. Bob looks shocked, and says that the number doesn't make sense. Buddy is next, and goes from 294 to 289, for a loss of 5 pounds. At this point, the ladies are starting to feel a little bit of hope. Kimmy is next, and goes from 169 to 167, for a loss of 2 pounds. Jeremy is next, and goes from 289 to 282, for a loss of 7 pounds. He's happy, and so is Conda. Next is Kim, who goes from 186 to 182, for a loss of 4 pounds. That's not bad, but she's displeased. The fact that she's not freaking out, however, shows growth according to Bob. The Red Team has lost 22 pounds total, or 1.91%. Not great! The Black Team definitely has a shot at this one.
To best the Red Team, the Black Team will have to have lost more than 19 pounds. Emily pipes up before anyone steps on the scale and says that she doesn't think they'll get it. Dolvett is NOT PLEASED. He also would like her not to be such a head case. Cassandra is first on the scale, and goes from 175 to 172, for a loss of 3 pounds. Dolvett says that she worked her butt off this week, and he couldn't ask for a better person to train. The Black Team is nervous again. Chris is next, and goes from 185 to 184, for a loss of only 1 pound. She says that she wasn't thrilled about the trainer change, and the stress got to her. The Black Team members really wish that they could vote her off, I think. Megan is next, and goes from 205 to 204, also for a loss of 1 pound. Dolvett can't believe it. Megan tells us that she could lose 1 pound taking a poop, and this number is embarrassing. Emily is next, and goes from 199 to 195, for a loss of 4 pounds. She'd like more, but Bob tells her to look at things in perspective and realize that she's dropped an awesome number. Finally, there's Conda. She'll have to lose 11 pounds for her team to stay safe, which seems pretty much impossible. She goes from 231 to 228, for a loss of 3 pounds. Conda hypothesizes that going back to Dolvett actually put her IN her comfort zone. She's not too upset about anything, though, since she's buddies with the Red Team folks and knows she'll be safe no matter what. The Black Team has lost 12 pounds, or 1.21%. The Red Team will vote to send one Black Team member home, but it won't be Emily -- she's the team's Biggest Loser. Cassandra feels like her coffin has been freshly nailed.
