Meanwhile, Jillian tells Daris that she doesn't like how close he's getting to the yellow line. His numbers have been weak, and it's clear that he has self-esteem issues. Jillian thinks it's obvious that he's not pushing himself, and she wants to know what's going on. Daris tells us that he's been having trouble getting his calorie burn, even when doing the same workout as others. He finally tells Jillian that he guesses he's not doing as much as the other big guys. With some prodding by Dr. Phillian, Daris says that he's always been heavy, and after a while you just give up and accept that you're the fat funny guy who goes home by himself every day. He's lost 51 pounds so far, and Jillian asks what he has to say about the funny fat guy who's 51 pounds skinnier after a month. Daris can't believe he's come this far, which has taken courage, confidence, and pride. He cries, and I want to give him the biggest hug. She asks Daris to be the guy who lost 51 pounds in four weeks rather than the funny fat guy. Daris agrees, and Jillian tells him that she'll be pissed if he falls below the yellow line. She totally wants to hug him too, though.
And then, since Sunshine and O'Neal are new they get to shill products with everyone else. Yep, it's Jennie-O turkey chili time. I do kind of want chili now. Bastards.
With that, it's challenge time. Sami could not be wearing more teal as she announces that this will be a football challenge. Each team has a piece of equipment with blocking pads. Their job is to alternate hitting each one. The first team to hit the tackling dummy 1,000 times wins immunity. The team who comes in last will receives a two-pound penalty. Each team will pick one person to represent them in this challenge, except for the teams who already have only one player. As it turns out, the challenge feels easy at first but in fact is actually quite arduous. Michael bops along to some '80s music in his mind, and gets into a good rhythm. Darrell notes that Drea was up against some big boys, so he basically has no faith that she can win, and just hopes she won't come in last. At about the midpoint, the Gray, Red and White Teams are all pretty close. Michael is infused with the spirit of REO Speedwagon, and is going to keep on loving the football challenge. He knows that Sam is a fierce competitor, so steps up his game even higher.
