After a break, Chris is thinking about Roy and wondering how he's doing. She gives him a call, and Roy tells her that he's been extremely lonely, and they've been apart longer than he's anticipated. Chris asks Roy if he needs her to come home, and he says yes. Oh, dear. I suspect that Santa is not so stable in the emotional realm. Even so, it's kind of shitty of him to ask her to come home. Chris is feeling overwhelmed and doesn't know what to do to ease the pressure. And so she eats a jar of mayonnaise. Also a burger, a PBJ sandwich, a grilled cheese, a Hershey bar, and more. And...wait. Did she just put peanut butter on top of a hamburger? You can binge all you want to, but try not to be completely foul about it. Also, where is she getting all this food? To be honest, it kind of looks like she's in a hotel room rather than the Loser rooms. Oh, duh! I bet they're still in DC. But... did she just call up room service and order a jar of mayonnaise? I am so confused. The old Chris was a very sad person, says the very sad new Chris. She is afraid that the old Chris might have the ability to creep in, take over, and make her put peanut butter on hamburgers. WWMOD? (What Would Michelle Obama Do?) The answer is: push-ups, and also not be a hot mess.
So, the contestants are indeed still in D.C., and Dolvett's team engages in a White House-adjacent last chance workout. Bob takes his folks to the gym, and notices that Chris is being a weirdo with no apparent interest in the weigh-in or the competition. If that's the case, Bob says, he's going to focus on Conda. Chris whines that she doesn't feel like she has a choice, because of things she needs to deal with at home. That's the rest of her life, she says, and this is temporary. Bob is in no mood, to be honest. He tells us that it would be crazy of her to throw away everything at this point. A relationship is a give and take, Bob tells Chris, and he asks when Roy supports her. She has no answer for that, which is not a good sign. And then she starts bawling, which is even less of a good sign. He tells her that her options are to stay and respect the process, or go home. Eh, I'm fine with her going home.
After a break, Bob tells Chris that she needs to stay in the house and take care of herself, and then she can take care of her relationship. Roy, meanwhile, needs to take care of his own damn self, or get an elf assistant to help him out. Chris agrees, and is back in the game. Triumph of the spirit, etc. Kelly Clarkson plays as working out continues. This show was so much more exciting when Michelle Obama was on it.
