Is the next round, Chris lends a hand to Mark and he comes in third. Conda takes fourth place, despite a challenge from Emily, and Chris gets fifth. Kim takes the sixth round easily, as she and Emily team up against Kimmy, the lone holdout of the everyone versus Emily and Kim alliance. We come down to Emily versus Kimmy, and Kimmy fully expects to lose. But lo! Kimmy digs deep and puts up a fight. She totally beats Emily to take seventh place! I always enjoy it when a mom wins anything. Emily cries, because she feels dumb.
And then it's present opening time! Mark chooses a box in which is a Biggest Loser hat. SWEET. Emily gets a phone for a day, which she clearly decides to keep. She thinks it won't be hers for long, though. Kimmy is next, and gets an autographed photo of Allison Sweeney, aka Sami! Hahaha. Kimmy decides not to offend Sami, and keeps the photo. Sami is touched. Kim is next, and gets a deluxe box of chocolates. This is like an actual Yankee Swap. Next year at work I'm totally putting in an autographed photo of Allison Sweeney. Kim is tempted to take the phone, but thinks that Emily needs the support of her loved ones to give her a boost. Also, I think, she wants to mow on some chocolates. She keeps them. Chris is next, and chooses a one pound advantage. She keeps it, though suspects it is a temporary acquisition. Conda is next, and gets a crisp new one dollar bill. She takes the one pound advantage, obviously, and Chris has something to put into her home renovation fund.
Mark next gets an interesting one -- an extra vote at elimination. Some people, including myself, would be totally tweaked out and get rid of that shit, but Mark doesn't want to give that power to anyone else. He keeps it. Megan next chooses goldfish. She swaps it for the one pound, and Conda gets the fish. That poor fish. Finally, there's Jeremy. His prize is "shopping with a celebrity." Sami explains that this anonymous celebrity is a fashion icon, and adds that he gets to bring a friend. Jeremy does a really sweet thing and takes the goldfish from Conda, thus giving her the shopping trip, and asks her to bring another one of the women along with her. She DID help him win, after all. Also, I think Jeremy could probably give a rat about shopping. He might feel regret, though, when he learns that the celebrity is not Tim Gunn but Jessica Simpson's pregnancy boobs.
