Then it's time to introduce Dane and Blaine. I totally forgot about them! Blaine emerges first, looking sharp in a suit jacket. Dane's not looking too bad, either! And then there's Mandi and Aubrey! Mandi looks gorgeous but extremely stressed. Oh, and Aubrey. I don't think she did very well at home. Sami asks Blaine and Dane what they've been up to. Turns out that they both did a half-marathon, then a full-marathon, then a half-iron man all in the span of three weeks! And ostensibly no cheating this time. Sami then addresses the fact that Aubrey is still kind of fat, and gives her the out of having a whole mess of kids at home and a house to clean and whatnot. Aubrey says that she's mastered the challenge of maintaining her weight, but in terms of losing more... it's hard. She says that she and her family help each other, and she tells the moms out there that they'll all get to their goal. Meanwhile, Erinn and Amanda are still working out backstage and pleading their cases while being publicly humiliated. All the gamey sweat in the room is ruining Jillian's hair, which makes me sad.
After a commercial break, Jerry continues to make Sami nervous and she hopes that Blaine or Dane or Mandi or Aubrey can beat him. Blaine steps on the scale. He needs to have lost more than 175 pounds to beat Jerry. Blaine does not appear to believe he has a chance. He goes from 365 to 249 for a loss of 116, or 31.78%. He flexes his guns to let us know he's happy with that. Dane is next, and boy, was he large when he started. 412 pounds large, to be exact. He wipes tears from his eyes as he steps on the scale and, pointing to his family in the audience, says that he's won already. Dane needs to have lost more than 197 pounds to take the lead from Jerry. He goes from 412 to 258 for a loss of 154 pounds, or 37.38%. That's pretty great, but still chump change compared to Jerry!
Mandi is next. She came and she gave without taking. And they sent her away. Oh, Mandi. She broke a chair in the mall food court and had an epiphany, then came on the show and promptly started kicking ass. Mandi needs to have lost 126 pounds to take the lead from Jerry. She goes from 263 to 171 for a loss of 92 pounds or 34.98%. Still not even close to the Jerry-nator! And then there's Aubrey. I hope she makes a good showing, at least. It really does have to be hard with five kids. Aubrey will have to have lost more than 119 pounds to take the lead from Jerry, which is not going to happen. She goes from 249 to 194 for a loss of 55, which is indeed respectable. That's 22.09%. She probably could have lost an additional pound if she had taken off the sparkly earrings. Sami takes this opportunity to tell Jerry that he's universally beloved before introducing the next group.
