Week Two: Get Moving
With Nikki voluntarily leaving the ranch and the competition, and TC falling below the red line at the first weigh-in meaning that he was automatically eliminated, the white team, led by Jillian, is already down two members after week one. Their problems continue as Jillian seems unable to get through to her team members.

Week Five: Waist & Money
Pam's elimination at the latest weigh-in raises issues for all three teams for this upcoming week. If the white team loses the next weigh-in, not only will their one and only remaining team member, Danni, leave the ranch, but her trainer, Jillian, will as well. The red team, who has won three of four weigh-ins thus far, feels like a target is on their backs. And the blue team, the only one with a still full complement of five members, believes the percentages are not in their favor this week.

The elimination of Lisa at the latest weigh-in marks the half way point for this season's competition.

The contestants soon ...

Jillian in particular chastises those ...

Week Eight: Work Together
Michael's elimination at the latest weigh-in has put some people on the defensive in how the vote went down.

In Face Your Fears week, Francelina, the latest eliminated contestant, is not the only person leaving the ranch.

That pop challenge loser will also bring with him/her one other contestant of his/her choice. Conversely, the pop challenge winner receives a one pound advantage at the weigh-in. This challenge...

Week Eleven: Down to the Wire
The joy the final five feel at the latest weigh-in by all making it past that weigh-in is slightly deflated by the news that at the next weigh-in, the penultimate, there will be a red line, the contestant falling below that being automatically eliminated, and a yellow line, the two contestants falling below that being possibly eliminated from the competition based on a public vote leading to the finale. That means that the top two for the week automatically make it into the final three, with the winner of the public vote being the third finalist. The childhood obesity...

Episode #15.9
Ruben, the most recently eliminated contestant, is shown in his post-ranch life. The remaining contestants meet at a diner, where Alison holds a pop quiz on lifestyle and obesity. The quiz topic and the locale are appropriate as the team that loses the quiz will return to work for the week - something that most of the contestants are dreading as "no time" has always been an excuse for not having a healthy lifestyle - not at their regular jobs, but rather at this diner, where bad food temptations will be immense. The losing team decides to bring some of their work home...
