After that we see the cast running on the beach. Dolvett pulls Kim aside, saying the Kim we have now is not the Kim we used to know. Yeah, we're grateful for that. Dolvett says the Kim he knows is a fighter. The two sit down and Dolvett asks Kim what's up. Kim talks about how everyone else has a friend/partner, minus Chris of course, but she's all alone.
Dolvett's concern is that Kim isn't fighting and he says she fell back a bit. Kim says she was listening to the other girls who just wanted to hang out. She found herself like that on the first day. Dolvett responds that's what he saw and he loves that naturally, she's a competitor. Kim says she does feel like she has to compete harder, she has to stay above the yellow line or else she's done.
Dolvett says she always takes that place of fire, and says she's good. Kim asks what she is supposed to say and he says, "I'm vulnerable." Dolvett says he's met competitive Kim but asks about vulnerable Kim. Kim says she doesn't want people to know she's vulnerable and Dolvett tells her she doesn't have to be scared anymore. The two hug and we cut to Kim recording on what looks like a camcorder. Kim says that when she first got here, she wanted to chill, but Dolvett got to her. She wants to be here, she's got to work harder.
As an aside, if they still want to have their emotional breakthrough moments this season, this would be a good standard to follow. No excuses, no blaming your family, just an admission of fear and a promise to work harder. We don't need to learn everyone has a skeleton in their closet that made them gain weight.
Back with Bob on an outrigger. He says that when The Biggest Loser goes on vacation, workouts aren't in the forefront. Bob is going to show America you can lose weight on vacation. Meanwhile, the Not Red team is walking down the beach to meet Dolvett. He says that just because they're on vacation doesn't mean they won't work hard.
We see Bob's group paddling and Conda isn't paddling fast enough. Dolvett meanwhile has his group using workout equipment, saying they don't have the ranch anymore. Bob gets his group very far away from the shore and tells them they're swimming back. At first no one wants to go, Megan in particular. She says there are things in the water. Bob yells at Megan to get in and she finally does.
Megan said she "cowgirled up," but she was shaking in her boots. Meanwhile Dolvett has his team digging their own graves, saying they need to lose weight, even in paradise. Bob's team does pull-ups on his outrigger, before having them swim back to the beach.
Now Dolvett's team is running with weights and shovels. Jeremy feels confident, saying he's proved to himself that he is one of the strongest people here. He won’t let Hawaii cause him to lose focus on his mission. Kim says this is a critical workout for her since everyone wants to take her out. Bob's team is back on the beach and is now running while soaking wet. He calls out Conda, saying he wants her to get first, which gets Megan going faster. Bob says Megan is not the powerhouse of the team, he wants more fight out of her. Megan meanwhile calls this the craziest workout ever. She thinks Bob has downed a can of crazy this week.
Dolvett has his team digging again, telling them this week there is no fear, no doubts, and no excuses. He says his team has to prove they can get the work done. Dolvett says they will be successful on his watch. They finish digging and Dolvett says he's proud of them.
We move to a valley where there are tikis with everyone's names and colors on them, lined up in a straight line. Mark calls it fantastic out here and doesn't care what they do today. Alison has all of them line up beside their tikis and asks if the area is amazing. Conda says typically that challenges make her nervous but not here. Alison says Hawaii is generally viewed as paradise and it would be hard to get focused. However, she has something that will take away that anxiety. This challenge is for immunity.
Kim smiles while Mark says he wants immunity real bad. Jeremy says that he wants to win so he can go back to the beach and enjoy Hawaii. She explains the challenge, saying down across the hill in front of them, are several leis. Their goal is to run down, grab leis, and put them on the tikis of someone else. When a person's tiki has ten leis, they're out.
Jeremy asks if it's necessary to have them run. Alison says there is also a death lei, which can instantly eliminate someone. So it's a challenge designed just to eliminate Kim and Chris as quickly as possible. Conda wants to find the death lei and put it on her own tiki. Me too.
Alison tells Buddy he hasn't been medically cleared, despite having a tiki. This doesn't surprise Buddy, especially with his stress fracture. Still sucks, but I'm pretty sure Buddy will be all right.
And they're off! We see them running down the hill, Kim taking a quick lead. Jeremy says that whenever there is a challenge like this, you'll see where everyone is in his or her alliances. Kim says she feels that everyone wants her out first. Megan gets one and says she'll eliminate anyone she finds to be a threat. Kim puts hers on Chris's tiki. Mark says his goal is to eliminate Kimmy, Megan, and Chris.
Kim puts the first lei on Chris and Mark puts one on Chris. Kim is back again and puts it on Chris. Megan and Chris both put leis on Kim, while Jeremy puts one on Chris. He says if he, Conda, and Mark gang up on the others, the others will be too busy ganging up on Kim. Mark comes back and puts one on Megan. Megan puts a fifth lei on Kim, saying Kim is a big threat. Kim says people are obviously gunning for her and it doesn't surprise her at all.
Kim has four, Chris has five, and Megan has two. Kimmy grabs the death lei and runs into Mark, asking if he wants it. Mark says Kimmy had the responsibility of the death lei, she can deal with it. To the surprise of no one, she puts it on Kim's tiki. Mark points out how stupid it is, saying it makes no sense to put it on a tiki with a high number of leis.
Kimmy shrugs and says it's a game. True, and it's a stupid move. The smart move would have been Mark or Jeremy, who both are fast and have gone after Megan. Kim isn't shocked. Chris now has nine leis, three on Megan, and two on Kimmy. Megan knocks out Chris. Chris says the reason she was taken out so soon has to do with the fact that Jeremy, Conda, Mark, and Buddy have control of the house right now. True, but will the other four notice it?<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
