Oh and THEN! Chris starts raging at the camera people in her room. She wants them to leave. If that's the case, then try losing 100 pounds while not being televised to the whole world. Sorry, but it's season thirteen, people. Santa enters the room and tries to talk to Chris, who has now locked herself in the bathroom. She tells him that he can come in the bathroom with her, but she's not coming out. Downstairs the others wonder what's going on, and Conda kind of laughs at Chris. I think she's right on this one, actually. Leave it to Mrs. Claus to reach new dramatic heights. Back in the bathroom, we hear Chris cry and say that she doesn't want to be there anymore. Santa tells her that she can't give up, and also can't let her team hear her moaning and complaining, because that will give them cause to send her home if they face elimination. Chris does not give an elf. She says that she's going to do what the elf she wants to do, which is be left alone. Good luck with that one, lady. Santa exits the bathroom with a look of apology for how crazy his wife is right now. Conda theorizes that Chris just wants someone to beg her to stay. Emily seems willing to be that person, but the others could give two shits about Chris and her self-made plight.
Just then, Saint Bob shows up to talk Chris down off of the ledge. She says that she's having a hard time dealing with the shit in the house, and Bob tells her that the house is hard work. He still has his jacket on, which indicates to me that he was on his way home and is not thrilled about having to manage this whole situation. Chris tells Bob that she was used to being invisible for 42 years, but that's impossible to do in the house. She adds that other people are tearing down her walls, and she doesn't have any protection. Bob looks SO tired, and just nods. He's got a new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on the DVR, and is not up for suffering this particular fool right now. He tells her some junk about how what she's feeling is normal, and that she can handle this. Bob explains to us that Chris wants to hibernate right now in the face of this new, scary experience. He tells her that he needs her to be all in, and she asks if he's up to the task, adding that she's a pretty messed up person. I am so over her right now. Bob makes her tell him that she won't give up on herself, and then presumably he's free to go. Finally!
The next morning is the first morning during which the Black Team is forbidden to enter the gym. It's about 30 degrees outside, and the contestants are even sadder about the situation. Bob has them sprint around and jump and move chairs and such. He theorizes that the Red Team is thrilled to have the gym to themselves. Indeed, Dolvett seems to be pretty happy. But Bob also is determined to show us all that we can lose weight without a gym. We cut to day three, and contrast the happy be-gymed Red Team with the chilly, shivering, miserable Black Team. Oh wait! But not everyone on the Red Team is happy. Dolvett tries to get Nancy to stop leaning on the treadmill, and she snaps back, "Do you want to talk or do you want me to work out?" What's with the old bitches this season? Dolvett is not feeling her, and so he makes her jog when she claims that she's exhausted.
