The team talks about potentially healthy meals. Jeremy mentions the chicken salad, and whatsherface points out that it could be a caloric nightmare. She recommends ordering it sans croutons, dressing on the side. "Dressing on the side" is a good rule in general, as it turns out. Daphne is thinking about the caramelized apple salad, and whatsherface notes that the caramelized walnuts that come with the salad are at least 200 calories. And also would kill your faithful recapper! In comparison, a glazed donut is 190 calories. Well, then! I should be eating more donuts, clearly. Chris says that she'd get the healthy egg white omelet, dry. Dry means that the chef will use cooking spray as opposed to butter, margarine or oil. This shaves about 200 calories off the whole thing. Cassandra realizes that she is going to have to become a high-maintenance restaurant customer. Everyone eats their dry food, joylessly, as they toast to good health.
The second half of the show begins with Dolvett's return. He tells his team that he's been watching them the whole time. He compliments Kim as a leader, but notes his concern about the separation within the team. For example, Conda spent a whole lot of time complaining about Adrian. Dolvett has a list that he reads aloud. He tells Conda to stop caring about what's happening with Adrian, and focus on herself. No more drama! Dolvett then gives Adrian some one-on-one advice about how to fit in with his team. He says that Adrian will earn respect if he goes harder than anyone else, and not just with his mouth. Do the work, says Dolvett, and start listening to others. So, basically, in the Red Team versus Adrian debate, everybody is wrong!
Last chance workout! You know how that goes. Kim starts freaking out a little, because she feels responsible for what happens to the Red Team. Dolvett is also nervous, and hopes his team can pull out a win. And then it's time for the weigh-in. Is Sami growing out her bangs? Things are getting a little crazy in her forehead area. The Red Team weighs in first, with Conda breaking in the scale. She goes from 263 to 255, for a loss of 8 pounds. It turns out she does better without Dolvett there! Kim is next, stressing out per usual. She goes from 215 to 209, for a loss of 6 pounds. Because Kim is a giant weirdo, she's not happy with that number. Roy is next, and goes from 268 to 261, for a loss of 7 pounds. He's sort of mutedly cheerful, and Sami wonders what will happen to the world if we must endure a skinny Santa. Maybe we'd all have to leave out kale instead of cookies on Christmas Eve? Kimmy is next, and goes from 193 to 188 for a loss of 5 pounds. Mark goes from 251 to 244, for a loss of 7 pounds. The Red Team is kind of kicking butt! Then there's Buddy, who goes from 345 to 336, for a loss of 9 pounds. Finally, there's Adrian. He removes his ascot as Kim worries that he might get immunity, thus depriving his teammates of the pleasure of eliminating him. Adrian goes from 334 to 325, for a loss of 9 pounds. He does a happy little dance, and his teammates clap reluctantly. Mark is still unimpressed with him. The Red Team has lost 51 pounds, or 2.73%. That is definitely beatable.
