Half the contestants have spent the week at home. How will this affect the weigh in results?
Michelle trains Richard and Katie today by ‘beating’ them with sandbags, ropes, wheelbarrows and pipes. Basically, for their training session, they will be using these objects as instruments to carry, push, pull and hold.
In the gym, Shannan has Brett and Gerald. These guys are giving everything they’ve got. Back to Michelle and her contestants are also training well with Richard picking up Michelle for extra resistance!
After the break, Shannan catches up with Anita who has been returned from hospital after stomach problems. She’s back in the game and ready for weigh in. Well…as ready as you can be! Cher, who didn’t cope too well with the news of her mother’s injury, is hard at work training. It’s now time for each of the five stay-at-home contestants to return to the house. Amber is one contestant who hasn’t trained hard at home. She thinks Richard will carry her through.
It’s now time for weigh in. Gerald and Todd are first up. Gerald and Todd weighed 125.8kg and 90.3kg respectively. They now weigh 123.5kg (2.3kg loss) and 88.4kg (1.9kg loss) respectively. That’s a combined loss of 4.2kg, or 1.94 per cent.

Robyn and Katie weighed 89.6kg and 110.9kg respectively. They now weigh 86.8kg (2.8kg loss) and 108.5kg (2.4kg loss) respectively. That’s a loss of 5.2kg with 6.2kg with their weight advantage. That’s a percentage of 3.09 per cent.
