Alison tells the contestants that this week is “work week.” This means that each contestant will be working a full-time, 40-hour job this week. Each team will be transported to downtown Los Angeles for one week to help with local food banks and Feeding America. Not only does this take away from precious workout time, but the gym will also go from being open 24 hours a day to only open from 6am-7:30pm.
Through the stress of work week, the teams still have to work together in order to succeed. At this week’s challenge, each team had to pull a semi-tractor trailer while collecting crates. The blue team crossed the finish line and solved the puzzle at the end first winning a year’s worth of free groceries.
At the weigh-in, the black team comes up short losing a combined 32 pounds compared to the blue team’s impressive 50 pounds. Because of the lower percentage of weight loss, the black team falls below, and ultimately ends up sending Cheryl George home.
