Bob and Jillian enter the gym for the last chance workout, and learn about the challenge winners and losers. They also learn about Miggy's surgery. She tells them about it while she's walking on the treadmill, because she's hardcore. She also notes that she was filled with fluid at last week's weigh-in, which resulted in her poor numbers. Miggy is also really torn up about not having Migdalia there anymore. Bob notes that stress can kill you in The Biggest Loser house, and he's not sure if Miggy has the will to keep on fighting. She has the will, I think, but also the fluid. It's a toss-up. In other last chance workout news, John does sprints for the first time! And Bob is overwhelmed by the drama and the trauma. But still, the beatings continue.
Jillian gives Ashley a hard time about her slackitude on the treadmill. She tells us that there's no fire lit under Ashley, and with a two-pound disadvantage, she needs to get moving. Ashley gets upset at how Jillian is talking to her, which gives Dr. Phillian a chance to get in a dig about her self-image. Dr. P. then asks Ashley what's made life so painful that she's now manifesting her own death. Manifest death-tiny! Ashley shrugs and cries and finally says, "The fact that I had to watch my father die in front of my face." Oh, there's that. Jillian takes her outside, and tells us that one of the most difficult pieces of baggage to carry around in life is regret about someone you've lost. Ashley had unresolved issues with her father, and instead of dealing with these unresolved issues she's been eating, smoking, and drinking. She's in a lot of pain. Dr. Phillian gets out of Ashley that she got a lot of verbal crap from her dad about her size. It made her feel terrible, even though she knew her dad loved her. When he was dying she didn't come home because she couldn't deal with it. When she finally did get home he couldn't talk anymore, and died the next day. Aw, fuck, I just started to cry. Just when I think I'm steely enough to survive this show, this happens. Jillian wants Ashley to say anything she'd say to her father right now. Ashley says that he hurt her feelings all the time, and she's sorry that she wasn't there. Ugh.
