Sami tells the two couples that they look unbelievable and should be proud. Agreed! Sami reminds Jerry that he had to go to the hospital during his first hour in the gym. We flash back, and man did he look ashen and bad. And dead. Now Jerry is rocking it, though in some ways he still looks kind of dead. Sami asks him if he even recognizes the people in the flashback, and Jerry crazily yells, "He's gone! He's gone! I'm here!" I think Jerry is in the midst of some serious roid rage. Dr. Huizenga is in the audience and confirms to us that Jerry is a whole lot healthier than he used to be. But also perhaps demented. It's a toss-up. Sami then goes to Nicole and reminds us that she's going to be a bride in August. She asks what size wedding dress Nicole will be wearing, and Nicole happily says that it will be a size 8. Damien claps riotously, because he knows they make a really freaking hot couple.
Then we have an update on the Pound for Pound challenge, which was all about fighting hunger while getting healthier. For every pound of weight lost, The Biggest Loser donated a pound of food to local food banks. All sorts of celebrities got into the act, too. Sami introduces Vicki Escarra, the CEO of Feeding America. She assures us that the people in need of food are going to get some damn food. But then they'll keep needing food, which could be a problem. More on that in a minute. Sami announces that, so far, Americans have pledged to lose a total of 2,926,027 pounds. Good work, America! But you can still pledge pounds this summer! And if you do, General Mills will donate up to 1,000,000 pounds of food to local food banks. Go to www.biggestloser.com, where you can make your pledge up until May 31. I am going to pledge to lose the 10 pounds of chicken pot pie that I just ate. You're welcome, local food bank! And, in fact, the Web site tells me that for every pound I pledge, 14 cents will be donated to Feeding America, which is enough to provide a pound of food to a food bank. So I can actually eat as many pot pies as I want, go straight to the Feeding America web site, donate $10.00 and actually help to provide 100 pounds of food. Sold! I would donate more, but I buy my pot pies from Whole Foods, and they are very expensive.
After a commercial break, we catch up with the trainers backstage. I can't even focus on the two wannabe contestants, since all of my attention is directed to the hotness that is Jillian's bare torso. Damn, woman!
