Last week Todd put on weight at a progress weigh in, Will he be able to lose some weight in the last chance training?
The episode opens with Michelle opening the gym for last chance training. Today she has Mandy and Brett (Grey Team), Mark and Chris (Black Team) and Janet and Kirsten (Pink Team). To start them off she has all the contestants on the treadmill to see how far they can run in two minutes. She reminds Brett and Mandy to give it their all due to having a weight disadvantage at the weigh in, as a result of the challenge.
Midway through the task Kirsten ups her speed and pushes her self just that little bit more. Kirsten says that after she didn’t complete the abseiling challenge she felt down but then realised there was no point dwelling on it and to just move on, since then she has pushed herself and is excited for the weigh in.
Last week Cher and Anita pulled out of the assailing at the last minute while Cher injured herself at the obstacle course. Today Shannon has them for last chance training and he has a task for Anita, if she can run 5.5 km in 45 minutes they will both earn the letters from home they missed out on last week by not completing the abseil.
Anita is off and working towards the goal while Cher is just going through the motions and not being enthusiastic about it. Shannon tells her she needs to be desperate every day.
After the break Anita has completed nearly half of the task. While Cher is now on the treadmill she finally realises she needs to believe she can do this and she starts to show some effort. Near the end of the session Anita still has a bit to do so Shannon cranks up the treadmill and she just makes it in time.
They earn and read the letters clearly the commando’s training session isn’t important as it’s time for the weigh in… Hayley congratulates them for surviving super-size week and reminds us that team green has a 1kg advantage while the yellow and grey teams have a 0.5kg penalty.

Everyone’s a little shocked by this result but how will it go down?
Like the first weigh in only one person from each team will be voting in the elimination room. The people to vote today are all the parents: Chris, Anita, Mandy Richard and Gerald
Before the show Robyn tried everything to help Katie with her problems but she just made it worse. She is unsure if she could help Katie lose those last 40kg on the outside, While Janet wants to stay to achieve the close bond that the orange team have.
Richard asks Kirsten what’s going to change if she stays because she treats her mum badly. Kirsten says that that is why they need to stay because they are making progress. Richard also notes that Katie needs to be bad by that he means to have belief, ability and desire. She admits she has some of these but she’s not ready mentally. Hayley reminds us that there is a chance whoever leaves could still return to the competition, with that it’s time to vote
Most of the parents have a tough choice ahead as they are all so close. Here’s how the vote went down
Chris Robyn and Katie

Richard Janet and Kirsten
