Bob and Jillian have their work cut out for them, and spend a lot of time in the gym with their players. As Bob trains Ron he says gleefully, "Hope you had fun at home Ronnie... cause now you're back in my house," while Jillian has a similar conversation with Helen, saying, "Hope you had fun at home -- you're my bitch for the next two months." As Helen and Ron, along with everyone else, moan and groan, Jillian laughs, "Yep -- a lot of love in this room!"
The contestants are all nervous about how the week at home may have affected them physically and mentally. Aubrey misses her family terribly, saying, "As I came back, I thought I would be okay. But when I got here, I felt really lonely. And I kinda felt like I don't have anybody." Kristin has found more strength in herself, telling Bob in a private conversation that, "Going home put everything in perspective. I'm in that mind frame now. I'm completely serious."
When the Blue team loses yet another weigh-in, emotions are high. Kristin tells her mom, "You are a good-hearted person and you can't handle the lies and betrayal of this house." Against Ron's wishes, Kristin and Cathy decide that Aubrey needs to stay and that Cathy should be the one to go home.
