Kim says if Chris and Conda can surf, she can too. We see Kim manage to make it on the board and stay up, while everyone cheers her. Kim says she never would believe that she would lose 74 pounds and be surfing with Bethany. Buddy says that two months ago, he had trouble walking up the stairs. Now he's on a surfboard. Buddy can't believe what's happened to him, and he'll be thinking about the last few months for the next few decades.
We cut back to the beach where Kimmy and Dolvett are. Kimmy admits that she can't swim, and she talks about her fears. Kimmy says in the ocean it's predator vs. prey, and she's the prey. Kimmy says Dolvett has fears, he laughs and says he's afraid of ocean and the water. Dolvett confesses to us that in the ocean, he's scared out of his mind.
Dolvett asks how it feels to be with Bethany and Kimmy says it makes her feel like her issues are unbelievable. Dolvett says today is about conquering fear and Kimmy is going to suck it up and do it. Dolvett says for the first time ever, he's going into the water and going to surf.
We see both Kimmy and Dolvett going into the ocean, and both of them manage to start surfing. Bethany cheers them on, even as Dolvett falls over sideways. Bethany calls Dolvett a stud and says she can tell this is his first time surfing. Finally we see Kimmy riding a wave all the way to the beach. She says she can't remember when she was so excited doing something, and fear is just a feeling.
Now we get a Hawaii montage and then cut to Kim in her hotel room. She says she does feel alone, but she doesn't need someone to complete her. She'll put a target on her back with a smiley face, saying come get her.
We go to Conda and Megan eating lunch. Megan asks where Kim is, so Conda says Kim is working out. Conda then says she's glad Kim isn't around, saying Kim and Emily weren't really that close and Kim needs to quit moping just because all her friends are gone and everyone wants to vote her off. You know, I was afraid for a moment that Conda's friendship with Kim would cause her to act like a decent person. Nice to see I'm wrong – thanks for that little rant, Conda. Because we know you, Conda, and we know you never mope about things. Well, except when Adrian couldn’t be voted off. Or when you switched teams. Or whenever things don't go your way.
From there we go to what looks like a luau. Everyone is holding little coconut drinks and gets a lei. Mark says he never thought he'd be here in Hawaii. Buddy says he walked in and the hula dancer walked up on him. As she cornered him, his mind told him to flee because his wife will be watching this.
Alison belatedly welcomes them to Hawaii. She calls it paradise, but says paradise is filled with temptation. She's going to put them to the test in a Hawaiian style pop quiz. They go off to their little quiz booths. Alison says that it'll be a trivia quiz, winner gets a one pound advantage. Jeremy says a one pound advantage is huge, and Chris says her nickname is the queen of useless knowledge.
First question: The Iron Man competition originated in O'ahu. Tara (I actually miss Tara) competed in it. How many miles must you traverse to finish an Iron Man? 26.2 miles (A), 58.5 miles (B), 112.2 miles (C) or 140.6 miles (D). Chris actually watched Tara doing the Iron Man during a Thanksgiving TV special, so she knows that the answer is D. Chris, Kim, and Buddy get it right. Conda says even though she got it wrong, bring on the Iron Man. Oh please.
Second, which vacation drink has the most calories? A Mai Tai (A), a Piña Colada (B), a Blue Hawaiian (C), or a Lava Flow (D). Conda says she's no stranger to alcohol. Jeremy asks if they get it right can they have it? Alison asks if he'd drink it and he says it's nice to think about. The answer is D, Lava Flow with 490. Kim, Chris, Buddy, and Conda get it right. Chris says it's the only one she hasn't had. Jeremy says he doesn't order fruity drinks like that.
Question three. Which of these Hawaiian foods has the most fat per serving? Is it six ounces of Kalua Pork (A), 12 chocolate macadamia nuts (B), four ounces of Lu'au sweet potatoes (C), or four ounces of Huli Chicken (D). Chris asks how chicken is prepared (in a glaze) and how the pork is prepared (pig seasoned and cooked underground). They put in their answers. The correct answer is B. Chris got it right, Kim got it right, Jeremy got it right, and Conda got it right. Chris and Kim are in the lead.
Question four: How many calories does an average 200-pound person burn surfing for an hour? Mark says surfing is such a full body exercise, you've got to be burning a lot of calories. Is it 100-140 calories (A), 160-200 (B), 250-290 (C) or over 320 calories (D)? They all put in their answers and for once Chris isn't confident. Alison congratulates Jeremy and says the correct answer is C. Only Jeremy got it right.
Final tiebreaker question, between Kim and Chris. Alison says they'll write down the answer. The question is, if you indulge yourself in 24 chocolate covered macadamia nuts, how many calories would you consume? Chris says she knows they're her favorite nuts and go great in cookies, but she has no idea how many calories they have.
Chris guesses 1260 while Kim goes with 518 calories. Kim says that she figured macadamia nuts are a bit larger then almonds, which they eat a lot of at the ranch. Kim multiplied slightly more calories then would be in an almond by 24, added extra calories for the chocolate, and got her answer. Alison says the correct amount is 1320.
Chris begins to celebrate. She says she can't believe she won, except she can. Kim is disappointed though and says she hates to lose. Incidentally, no one looks happy. Alison tells Chris she's won one pound and now it's time to test one of the oldest excuses of the season, “I can't lose weight on vacation.”
The cast walks out on the beach where Dolvett greets them. Jeremy says Dolvett has a surprise for them, and wonders what they're doing. Dolvett says his team is here and relaxing, but he has a friendly competition that they think they'll love. Dolvett has them hold their feet and hands up, off of the ground. First one to drop will make a product placement smoothie.
Jeremy drops quickly, saying it's easy to win the competition. He has the strength to go above and beyond and lose for others on purpose. Dolvett says they're on vacation and will make bad choices. He does a commercial for the smoothies and has Jeremy make it by using a bike-powered blender. At least this commercial has something to do with weight loss.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
