Ali tells the players that this week only one person's weight from each team will count at the weigh-in. It will be up to the opposite team to decide who will be weighing in. The teams will not know who is chosen until the actual weigh-in.
Elizabeth is nervous because she knows the Blue Team will choose her to weigh in for the Black Team. Jillian concentrates on Elizabeth's progress, because she has the same feeling. Jillian's also mad that Frado refuses to do what she asks of him.
The players meet up with celebrity chefs Curtis Stone and Lorena Garcia to hear about their next challenge. Six players will prepare an appetizer, entrée, and dessert, and six other players will judge their creations - but they won't know which players prepared the meal. Ali says the winning team will get ten seconds. That's the only clue she can give out.
Curtis and Lorena can't touch the food their teams are preparing; they can only give instructions. Each team has only 40 minutes to cook all three dishes, so chaos breaks out in the kitchen as all six players try to make the best use of their time.
The teams bring their dishes to the food tasters. Frado and Adam judge the appetizers. Frado chooses the Blue Team's dish and Adam chooses the Black Team's dish. Now the teams are tied.
Ada and Mark judge the entrée dishes. Both of them like the Blue Team's meal, and Jesse and Brendan choose the Black Team's dessert. Now the game is a tie, so the judges have one more decision to make. To break the tie, the judges must decide how many calories are in each team's dessert.
The Blue Team has the closest guess to the calorie number in their dessert, so they win the challenge. They were only five calories off! They celebrate their win and can't wait to hear what this 10-second advantage is all about.
The teams learn about their rowing challenge. Due to the toughness of the challenge, the Blue Team already feels like they squandered their advantage, especially when they see the Black Team's rowing prowess.
The Blue Team wins the challenge and celebrates their victory. Meanwhile, the Black Team feels defeated, once again. The Blue Team has now won the option of blocking the first player the Black Team chooses to represent them at the weigh-in.
Adam still has his weight-loss advantage, which is now worth three pounds. He tells Ali he's still not ready to use it, and will think about it next week when it's worth four pounds. Frado can't believe Adam isn't using his advantage for this week's weigh in.
Ali asks the Blue team who they chose to represent the Black Team at the weigh-in. It's Elizabeth. Bob knows Jillian has been working extra hard with Elizabeth this week and thinks his team might have made a bad decision.
The Black Team decides Jessica should represent the Blue Team at the weigh-in. Even though they have the power to block the Black Team's first pick, the Blue Team decides to stick with Jessica as their choice.
The Black Team weighs in first; only Elizabeth's five-pound weight loss counts. The Blue Team is happy to pull in big numbers, but Jessica's weight loss is the only one that counts. Jessica loses four pounds, but that's not enough to beat Elizabeth's weight loss percentage. Bob assures Jessica she's not at fault for this.
The Blue Team has to decide who to eliminate this week. In the end, it's a tie between Jessica and Adam. Now the Black Team has to make their final decision. They decide to send Adam home.
