Synopsis


As the players from home started to adjust to life back with their partners on the ranch, Bob gave his team a warning. He told them that the players were a lot more competitive since the first week on the ranch. Bob couldn't wait to see how much work the returning players really did at home.

Jillian met up with her team and was saddened but not shocked to see her Orange team gone. She knew Bob's teams have always had a history of not voting off their own and since there were so many more of them, this was going to be the case, again. She wanted her team to get up to speed fast, or more of them would be going home. Now it was time to weigh in the at-home contestants to see how much they'd worked at home.

The weigh-in revealed that Aubrey had only lost two pounds while she was at home. Aubrey was disappointed, but gave a few reasons on why she didn't drop as much weight. Bob and Jillian were not happy with the excuses. Especially because excuses were the reason why the contestants became overweight to begin with.

Carla was happy to see she'd lost twenty pounds while at home. Now it was time for her to make sure she stayed on the ranch and that meant pushing Joelle to her limit, too, because Carla had noticed Joelle hadn't been pulling her weight in the gym. In fact, the award for the upcoming challenge was a two-pound pass at the weigh-in or $5,000 in cash. Joelle eyed the cash, but Carla said they would be playing for the pass.

This week's challenge had the players having to work together in unraveling a giant rope wrapped around a pipe. The teams had to go under and over the pipe until there was enough rope unraveled that the team could stretch it to the finish line. It was a test to show the players how much they had to rely on their partners. The players were playing for either a two-pound pass at the weigh in or $5,000 in cash.

The teams were getting more and more frustrated with themselves as they tried to unravel the rope as fast as they could. In the end, the Yellow team of Mandi and Aubrey won their first challenge. Aubrey was especially proud of herself because she wanted to prove she was back in the game. Ali said they would need to choose what prizes they wanted right before the weigh-in.

Jillian concentrated extra hard on her team's last-chance workout, especially since the Orange team had been eliminated the week before. This was also time for recently added partners on the ranch to feel the wrath of Jillian. Jillian wanted her players to concentrate on why they were on the ranch to begin with.

Bob noticed the Silver team was already having problems. Carla was working out with the rest of her team on the elliptical machine while her partner, Joelle, seemed distracted while looking for weights, but not focusing on any particular exercise. The other players were noticing Joelle's lack of attention, as well. Bob pointed out that his team puts in at the gym whatever they want to see on the scale.

Bob knew that Shanon was a fighter and he wanted to her to prove it in the gym. He ordered Sione to jump on her back to prove she could carry him. She carried him across the finish line that Bob had set for her, and back. Helen was so moved by her daughter's strength.

It was time for the weigh-in and Ali told the players they would be weighing in as a team. Bob noted that the players from at home were now going to see what it feels like to be on the ranch full time, weighing in with their teammates.

Before the weigh-in could begin, Ali wanted to know what the Yellow team had decided about taking from the win at the challenge. They decided the two-pound pass was more important than $5,000. Jillian was proud of their decision.

Bob was very nervous when Carla and Joelle got on the scale. He wasn't sure what was going to happen, since it had looked like Carla was doing most of the work in the gym. Joelle didn't seem to care what would happen because she was sure Bob's team would save them from being eliminated in the end. Meanwhile, the scale revealed Bob's fears. Carla lost nine pounds and Joelle lost a total of zero pounds. Aubrey started to cry for Carla, because she knew how hard she had worked out in the gym.

The rest of the players had no sympathy for Joelle when she started making up excuses about not losing any weight. Bob was getting more and more irritated and pointed out to the other players why it was so important to remember they were representing their partner when they got on that scale.

After the weigh-in results were finally done, the Silver team of Joelle and Carla and the Brown team of Ron and Mike were up for elimination. The rest of the teams had one hour to decide who would stay on the ranch. Meanwhile, Carla finally snapped at Joelle for not putting in the same amount of effort.
