Oh, and now it's time for DeathWatch with Dr. Huizenga. The contestants head to the hospital for all sorts of crazy tests and to learn just how bad off they are. The Brown Team, Ron and Mike, are extremely fat, and Ron even has a fatty liver. Ron had bypass surgery, but wasn't able to lose weight even so. His stomach was the size of an egg after the bypass, and Dr. H. says that all this shows that surgery is not a panacea. Ron is scared to know that Mike is following in his footsteps, and that he has another son at home who is facing the same struggle with weight. The Pink Team, Shannon and Helen, are mirror images of each other. Helen is a smoker, which makes things even worse. Helen is 48, but her "real age" is 60. This makes her cry, as those real age tests often do on this show. And on Oprah. Blaine and Dane don't get good news, either. Their lung capacity is teeny, on account of their voluminous abdominal fat. They also have fatty livers. Blaine and Dane get emotional as well.
We then go back to working out at the ranch. Buy Brita filters and water bottles to stay hydrated and save the environment! Oh, this is actually the last chance workout. There is yelling from Bob and crying on the part of Joelle from the Silver Team. Bob says that Joelle does a lot of talking and not a lot of working out, and he needs to change that if she's going to stick around. Jillian gets on dead weight Laura's case, and Laura is already sick of Jillian asking her why she's there and why she's fat. Jillian tells us that Laura concerns her, because the work that she needs to do mentally far outweighs the work she needs to do physically. She tries to Dr. Phillian Laura, to mixed effect. Tara interviews that she's going to do what she has to do to keep them there, and generally confirms her overall awesomeness.
Weigh-ins! Sami tells the contestants that tonight there will be no eliminations. Everyone cheers and high-fives, except for Jillian and Bob who just look wary. They ask what the catch is. Sami says that there will be no elimination, but nine of them are going home. The celebrating abruptly stops. Sami explains that each team will weigh in, and the team with the highest combined percentage of weight loss will be above the yellow line. Dane and Blaine, of course, have immunity and are the only couple that is safe. The only other couple to be safe is the couple that wins the weigh-in. The nine teams who fall below the yellow line will have to choose one person from each couple to go home. DIABOLICAL! Poor Sami must feel so bad having to give this kind of news all the time, but she remains stoic. All her evil training on Days of Our Lives has prepared her well.
