Bob tells us that Mark is a game player, and is going to do whatever it takes to win. And I thought he was the nice and less creepy twin! Both twins are certainly drama queens as they moan and groan and fall on the floor during their workouts. They are determined to stay above the yellow line. But, as Maggie says, the game is so unpredictable that the people who are strong now could change tomorrow. Bob and Jillian address the paltry losses at last week's weigh-in, and Bob warns them that the coming week is going to be tough. Amanda, who lost zero pounds, notes that the trainers are going to make sure she works that much harder this week. Ditto for Kelly, who lost one pound. She knows that she and Paul have to stay above the yellow line, or they're toast. With "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" on it.
Bob meets with the Pink and Purple Teams to talk about calories. Jenn liked to snack on a bag of cheesy puffs at home. Mmm, cheesy. You know what Bob does every time he works out? Chews on Wrigley's Extra Gum! Once Wrigley's makes cheesy-puff-flavored gum, I am so there.
Bette-Sue, meanwhile, is being worked to the 53-year-old bone by Bob. She sounds like she's going to cough up a hairball. Is that healthy? And with all the time they spend working out, is it really efficient to self-groom with her tongue? After a strenuous, hairball-producing lifting session, Bob wants her to walk a mile with 20 pounds of weights in hand. She's pissed and can't believe he asked her to do it. But she does it and, we are to assume, does not die. Amanda, meanwhile, tells us how Neill had a hard time adjusting the first week or two, which led some people to believe he was lazy. Now, however, he's getting more comfortable. Or so he says. Jenn thinks that Neill is fooling people into believing that he's doing more and more, but when the trainers aren't looking he puts his hands on the treadmill and that sort of thing. Even if, for argument's sake, you said that Neill wasn't lazy, you'd still have to acknowledge that he's kind of a dink. Oh, and then back to Bette-Sue! Maybe she does die after all. Apparently done with her walk, she throws her weights to the ground and collapses. However, she did have an a-ha moment while she was face to face with the grass. Two weeks ago, those twenty pounds were a part of her. She gets up off of the ground -- not dead! Victory.
Jillian, meanwhile, drills Ali as to why she's fat, saying that if they don't get to the bottom of why they're there, they'll just put the weight back on. Ali says the weight protects her. Her parents divorced when she was young, and she felt alone and hated it. If people leave her now, it will be because she's fat -- that's her excuse. Oh, man! This is better than Maury. Throw in a paternity test and we'll really be rocking. Ali acknowledges that she and Bette-Sue have some issues, and Jillian wants them all to sit down together for a big ole' confrontation. All right! Ali loves Bette-Sue, and wishes that they could talk about the few tough issues they have, because then they'd have more of a complete relationship. Jillian tells Ali that she won't keep the weight off if she doesn't deal with this.
