Nicole spends one on one time with almost every contestant, and tells some of them about her experiences at home. She confesses to Helen that her treat every week was a coffee from Dunkin Donuts, but that she would just stare at the actual donuts and be thankful she wasn't eating them! Everyone continues to try to get some of Nicole's time, but Nicole tells everyone that she really doesn't want to be involved in the drama, and is just thankful to be back and have the advantage of the trainers' expertise.
Having Nicole back in the house has thrown everyone for a loop, with Mike and Tara being especially bothered by her high numbers. Nicole mostly keeps to herself for the week, running hour after hour on the treadmill, while the rest of the contestants continue to stress about the game, alliances, and how on earth they can keep up their accelerated pace of weight loss.
Everyone is glad to see Alison Sweeney rejoin them at the weigh-in, and they all take a few moments to coo over pictures of newborn Megan -- with even Bob and Jillian gushing over the baby. When the weigh-in time comes around, it is hard to tell who is more upset -- the contestants or the trainers, when Nicole actually gains weight and comes up for elimination. Even though both Ron and Laura gain weight as well this week, it is no surprise when Nicole is ousted from the game, having lost her immunity and only being able to enjoy the benefits of the BL ranch for one week. The remaining contestants regroup quickly, as now the game has resumed from where they were one week prior -- with all the familiar faces intact.
