The Blue Team works out in the outdoor space and Alex goads Bob into yelling at her, for her own good. The whole team is looking rather lackluster, though, and Bob starts giving Gina grief for admitting that she wasn't committed this week. All of the game playing of the week, mostly in the form of David's whispering, is taking a toll on her, along with the pressure to pull out a big number. The pressure has gotten the better of her, and Bob tells her that she needs to learn how to handle pressure because it's everywhere.
And then it's challenge time! Sami asks how the food situation is going, and Gina gets all worked up about how much fish they have left. Jeff is frustrated by the fact that Gina didn't speak up at the grocery store and ask them to get more fish, but is playing the victim now. Plus, it sounds like they have plenty of fish and Gina is just being alarmist, surprise.
Planet Fitness is sponsoring this challenge, and will give every member of the winning team ten one-year memberships. Those can be given to friends, families, co-workers or friendly recappers. The winning team will also have the choice of a two-pound advantage on the scale, or a chance to call home. Everyone instantly starts crying, and they don't even know what torture awaits them in the challenge.
Speaking of: there are three fountains in the middle of a pond, and each team will be challenged to fill them with coins -- ten coins for every member of their team. And the coins are five pound weights. David hasn't been medically cleared for the challenge, so the Blue Team and Red Team will have to get forty coins in the fountain. Danni will have to get ten coins in the fountain. The challenge begins, and the contestants jump in the water. There's a fair bit of swimming involved, and Joe and Danni instantly start their competitive thing. There are some other good swimmers in the mix, and the Red Team and Danni wind up hitting the halfway point at about the same time. Alex isn't a great swimmer and so decides to take a little break, but Michael hustles her along. Gina basically admits defeat and decides to stop trying. Maybe if she'd had more fish she'd be more of a natural in the water? Danni picks up her last coin, and despite the fatigue powers through and wins the whole thing! She takes the two-pound advantage instead of the call home, obviously.
And then it's time for David to check in with Dr. "Death" Huizenga! David is still on crutches due to his knee, and Dr. H. shows him an MRI which shows a) a fatty knee; b) cracks in his spongy bone. I don't exactly know what that means, but any time you mention spongy bone it can't be good. David finally drops the info that, a few years ago, he had an injury to the meniscus of that same leg, which also happened on a treadmill. Bob wishes he'd have known about the previous injury, since it put the team at a huge disadvantage. He notes that David has a hard time asking for help, or even what he needs, and needs to get to the point where he recognizes his feelings as valid. So, he's another one to put on the therapy bus.
