People eat Subway sandwiches, and then we learn that it's magic shopping day for Conda and her special guest, Kim! Conda chose Kim because she's also a single mom, who probably doesn't spend a lot of time on herself. They head to Beverly Hills, and the poor things have to wear their Biggest Loser gear. I sure wish Lisa Vanderpump would saunter by right about now. Conda and Kim enter a store where they meet their celebrity fashion icon, Jessica Simpson. And while I feel comfortable hating on Jessica Simpson in general, I have to admit that her clothing and shoe lines are not particularly hideous. I don't buy them on principle, but I am often tricked into liking them before I know who made them. Damn you, Simpson! Her first task is to get the ladies to transition from sneakers to high heels, and her second is to plug Fashion Star. It turns out they're in Jessica's L.A. showroom, and can take whatever they want. The ladies put on a little fashion show, and it's like Pretty Woman minus the prostitution, and with Jessica Simpson in the role of Richard Gere. Kim is psyched to learn that she's wearing a size 10, and Conda enjoys her skinny jeans. The ladies get a year's supplies of Beauty Mint, which is some sort of facial crap, and some diamond necklaces. In the end, Jeremy did make the right call in giving away this prize.
After a break, that chef nutritionist lady comes by to shill for Progresso Light soups. And I mean, if a completely unbiased nutritionist recommends it, it's got to be healthy, right? The real story is: Jeremy wants to bone this lady in a bowl of 100-calorie clam chowder, the end. Dolvett then takes Kimmy to a very tall rock climbing wall. It turns out that Kimmy has a fear of heights, which Dolvett thinks she must conquer if she's ever going to be able to believe in herself. Dolvett asks Kimmy why she always feels like she has to take care of everybody else. Kimmy then tells him that her mother was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, manic depression and obsessive compulsion. Holy cripes. Kimmy's mom wasn't able to take care of her family, and so at eight years old Kimmy herself started to act like a mother figure. She remembers times when her mother didn't want them to eat at all, because she thought not eating would purify their bodies. But food offered survival and comfort to Kimmy, and she says that she can't stand the thought of not having a full freezer, just in case. Dolvett tells her that she's a fighter, and that it's time for her to help herself. Kimmy hits the rock climbing wall, and as she gets higher is on the verge of a panic attack. But then she thinks about all her struggles and how she's overcome them, and gets some renewed confidence. With coaching help from Dolvett, she gets to the top of the wall and yells that she believes in herself. When she gets back down, she gives Dolvett a big hug. Triumph of the spirit!
