Finally, Bob and Jillian enter the gym and hug the teams. Everyone is quite excited to meet them. And then a thing happens. Jerry, the male half of the grandparent team, looks particularly unsteady. Estella interviews that he came to her and said that he felt like he was going to go down. A medic attends to him as he limps and slurs and his eyes roll back in his head. Estelle emotionally interviews that she thought he was going to die. And then Jerry passes out. Holy crow! Of course we then go to commercials. Thanks, Biggest Loser, for not exploiting a truly scary moment where it looks like someone might finally kick it. I'm surprised no one yelled out, "You can revive him with Extra Sugar Free Gum!"
When we return, Jerry is on the floor and Estella is obviously quite worried. The medic gets Jerry to open his eyes and breathe. I think we can all be happy that he didn't actually die. Bob says that seeing Jerry pass out was one of the scariest things he's ever experienced at the Biggest Loser ranch. And Vicki was on his team! So he knows scary. The other contestants are obviously affected as well. Estella tells us that the fainting incident made it all real -- it's not a question of if she's going to lose Jerry, it's when. She knows they need to make a change, yeah, do it today, yeah. An ambulance takes Jerry to the hospital for some tests. Jillian and Bob take this opportune time to remind the contestants that this is about life or death. They will be Jerry if they don't change. Lucky for them, they have a really, really good opportunity to change.
But enough with the real drama, and on to some manufactured drama! It's time for the teams to get their trainers. Sami explains that Bob and Jillian will each choose one team, then that team will pick the next team, and so forth. Daniel's brain instantly goes to the fourth grade "somebody's going to get picked last" that we all -- but especially these guys -- have suffered through. Jillian has first pick. She asks Estella why she's there, and Estella says she came because Jerry asked her to, but now she realizes how important this is for them. Jillian asks Estella if she can change. Estella says she can, and Jillian asks her to join her team. Go Jillian! She never backs down from a challenge. Bob picks Carla and Joelle, the Silver Team. I think one of these ladies is the biggest female ever, but I'm not yet sure which one it is. Estella picks Black Team Blaine and Dane to join Jillian's team, and Carla and Joelle pick the Blue Team, Sione and Filipe to join Bob's. Dane and Blaine pick the Green Team, former models Tara and Laura. Sione and Filipe pick the Red Team, engaged couple Nicole and Damien. The Green models pick the Orange Team, best friends Daniel and David to be with Jillian. The Red Team picks the Pink Team, Shannon and Helen to join Bob. The Orange Team then picks the Yellow Team, sisters Aubrey and Mandi, to join Jillian. The Brown Team, Ron and Mike, is last to be picked to join Bob's team. This means that the Purple Mother daughter team, Kristin and Cathy, is last. Kristin, the Purple daughter, interviews that when you're heavy you're used to being rejected by certain groups of people, but to be rejected by your own kind really hurts. Kristin tells the whole group that she and her mom can do anything. Sami appreciates Kristin's pride, and says that their reward is to pick who they want to train with. Kristin and Cathy pick Bob. Kristin thinks this is the best decision her mom has ever made. Given Bob's winning streak or lack thereof against Jillian, I wouldn't be so hasty with the praise.
