We get the numbers for the White Team. Danni is in first place for the team at 7.36% lost, then Nathan with 5.57%, and Pam with 4.22%. Yes, this means that TC is below the red line with 3.99% lost. The room goes silent except for TC's sobs. He says that he feels really good about himself, and it doesn't feel right to go home when he's on such a high. Jillian tells him that the man who was in that last chance workout is who he is, and that's what he needs to fight for. Things will change whether he's at the ranch or not. TC tells us that this journey is ending too soon, but he also feels like he's getting what he needs out of it. He's a changed person. TC hated Jillian on day one and wished that he never had her as a trainer. Leaving the ranch, however, he can't think of anyone who would have been better for him, because she showed him that he had to fight for himself. He was happy to be introduced to bad-ass TC during the last chance workout, and it feels good to let him out. The next time we see TC he will have fulfilled his promise to his son to be skinnier and healthier, and he'll be a new man.
We catch up with TC now. He weighed 361 pounds when he left the ranch, and now weighs 320. That's a loss of 41 pounds! He's being more active with his family now, and can chase his kids around instead of watching from the sidelines. He acknowledges that getting kicked off the ranch in week one is hard, since you have feelings of failure to contend with. He had to show his family how much he'd changed inside, and so headed right to Planet Fitness with his free membership. His wife says that they've been a lot closer since he came back from the ranch, and are stronger than ever. TC tears up as he says that his son is seeing him live up to his word to be healthier. He is committed to reaching his goal weight of 245 pounds by the finale.
