After a commercial break, Jeremy unloads to Dolvett about his painful past. His parents divorced when he was in high school because his dad had an addiction to painkillers. Jeremy was ashamed and tried to hide it. Dolvett asks what Jeremy would say to someone who claims he also has an addictive personality, but geared toward food. Jeremy thinks that person might be right, but he's not the same as his dad. For a while, Jeremy had closed off his emotions totally, but Dolvett tells him that healing comes from admitting that he has pain. Sweeping it under the rug doesn't help. Jeremy says that he's there to change, and Dolvett respects him for it. Triumph of the spirit, etc.
Meanwhile, Megan does her video diary as she engages in six hours of cardio in the evening. She follows all of Bob's rules to a T. And then she has to do some pre-breakfast homework, too! Horrors. But Megan realizes that she can do it by just relying on herself. Triumph of the spirit, etc. There are a lot of those tonight. Now we just need someone to jump up on a box after thinking that they cannot jump up on a box.
With that, it's time for a cooking challenge! The contestants get seven minutes to come up with a recipe and get all the ingredients. Jeremy is like: "Frozen pizza. Done." The contestants then will have 20 minutes at the ranch to make the dish. Kim knows that she's not a good cook, and expects to fail miserably. NOT triumph of the spirit. The contestants will be judged on taste, creativity, and nutritional value. The winner will get $1,000 for every pound lost on the scale. Conda knocks Buddy into a soda display almost instantly. Sami calls for a cleanup in aisle three. Chris is planning on making a broccoli and cheese stuffed chicken breast with honey-orange dipping sauce. She's confident about her chances of winning. After two minutes, Jeremy still has an empty cart. This is not looking good for him. Kim plans on making a teriyaki filet-stuffed mushroom. Conda is going to make cabbage soup, which is one of her specialties. She's using Jennie-O turkey, of course. And did you know you can substitute Brita filters for bay leaves? Buddy has plans for chicken salad, and decides to go with regular mayonnaise because it's tastier. Meanwhile, Chris has a breakdown when she can't find honey, and I think that Jeremy might be making peanut butter and jelly. Ah -- close: French toast. In the end, everybody makes it to the finish line on time, but Jeremy realizes that he forgot to get eggs. Buddy points out that French toast is made of bread and eggs, so he's pretty screwed.
