This week begins in the elimination room. The ranchers are brought in to join the unknowns in order for Ali to share some news with them: The two factions will officially be in direct competition as they are going red versus black!

If you repeatedly overeat despite your best efforts, you may be using food to cope with underlying feelings of anger and resentment. While eating may seem to be a temporary fix, it perpetuates a self-destructive problem. To find a permanent solution, add a some forgiveness to your weight release program.

The ranch is still reeling from the twins’ 9-pound gain from last week’s weigh-in. As much as Don says he did not throw the weigh-in, no one seems to believe him, myself included. It is EXTREMELY difficult to put a number like that up and have it be “accidental.”  There is another one of those famous twists going on this week, as per the usual. We have a temptation!
