The episode opens in the elimination room. The red team is still not settled fromJay‘s departure when the black team is called in for an announcement. There will be two people eliminated this week. The team that loses the weigh in has to send someone home, as well as the lowest overall individual goes home under the dreaded red line. Can the red team afford to lose their fourth and fifth person in a row?
The red team gets a special little treat to help combat their losing streak, one that makes me quite jealous. They get to go train at Bas Rutten’s MMA facility. I have trained MMA before and actually trained at TapouT in Las Vegas for three weeks before the finale. This style of training is what really helped me rip off the pounds when I was off the ranch. I wish we had more of it when I was on the ranch. As one can see, these are extremely brutal, high intensity workouts that helps you shed weight quick. Then, after this ridiculous workout, Bas himself comes out to greet them and to specifically talk to Rulon, who he helped train for his fight in 2004, and was glad to see that he is trying to right the ship.

Two members of the red team have gone home two weeks in a row. At this point, they must be feeling the pressure mounting. Losing one weigh in, let alone two in a row, can definitely put a gloom on your situation. Can the red team stop their losing streak? Also, will Arthur be able to shake that target off his back, even as he tries to rationalize his decision to his father?
This week’s pop challenge really makes the teams work in unison. They are tied together by a single rope that is tied in knots. The first team to do it gets a key. The only key. To the gym for the entire week. This puts the other team at a severe disadvantage. The red team, with CowboyJustin, win this challenge quite easily. Bob and Jillian are none too happy with this, but they know it’s just something they have to deal with. Meanwhile, on the red team, it seems like Rulon‘s head is just not in it, almost as though he is holding something back. Read Full Post >
This week begins in the elimination room. The ranchers are brought in to join the unknowns in order for Ali to share some news with them: The two factions will officially be in direct competition as they are going red versus black! But that is not all. There is also a temptation to take care of right away. Read Full Post >
We continue last week’s episode this week. Since there was no weigh-in last week, there are going to be two people sent packing in this episode. Who will fall below that yellow line and end their tenure?
The ranch is still reeling from the twins’ 9-pound gain from last week’s weigh-in. As much as Don says he did not throw the weigh-in, no one seems to believe him, myself included. It is EXTREMELY difficult to put a number like that up and have it be “accidental.” Read Full Post >
