Money Hungry- episode 3- "Roommate Traitor Filthy Pig!"

Remember when everyone in the Money Hungry household was friends? Yeah. That's all over now.

After a tense elimination that sent the Roll Models home, "The Orphanage" (Mission Slimpossible, Grading Curves, A Pair of Nuts, and Chicago Deep Dish) kick out No Excuses since team member Josh didn't vote against the Roll Models. Grading Curves calls Josh a "roommate traitor filthy pig" and Josh decides to sleep in Roll Models Jamie's empty bed. Wee woo.

Head of "The Orphanage" is Mission Slimpossible's Joe who has taken control of the reins and is basically bullying all teams to vote for No Excuses for not following orders. Joe's new nickname? The Godfather. They really like naming themselves on this show.

But this show is still about weight loss, right? Right. The teams meet Veronica's Closet star Dan Cortese for this week's challenge called "Chubby Chase". The offended teams who chose to be on a reality weight loss show called Money Hungry make a face and Dan quickly soothes them with a "I don't name 'em, I just explain 'em." The teams are tethered together and must run around a track trying to catch the team in front of them and pull off the team's flag while avoiding the team behind them who is also trying to get their flag. Sound confusing? Here's a clip sponsored by McDonald's. The irony isn't lost on me.

Mission Slimpossible are this week's Big Heavies and Flabulous is on the chopping block. Not the winner this week: All the breasts that don't have a proper sports bra- including Phillip's breasts.

Back at the house Rocker Mom Carrie reveals she has strained her hip flexor, A Pair of Nuts is in cahoots with Mission Slimpossible, and The Regulators don't take kindly to Mission Slimpossible telling them who they need to vote for. In fact, Po overhears "The Orphange" sitting in the hot tub talking smack and realizes that anyone that isn't in "The Orphanage" is going to be set up to be eliminated each week. Have I mentioned we are 23 minutes into the show and no one has worked out yet? I did spot the contestants eating some oatmeal. No Extra Sugar Free Gum or Lanacane Chaffing plugs.

After a commercial break, the contestants are FINALLY in the gym with trainer Richard doing some boxing and the injured Rocker Mom Carrie is having to find alternatives to her usual (I don't know what it was) workout like the rowing machine. Flabulous Phillip is feeling unmotivated to workout because it is such a struggle to compete against the other "fitter" contestants. He calls his grandfather who fronted the $10,000 for him and his pal Stephanie to be here and listens as his grandfather tells him that he is in the hospital AGAIN for congestive heart failure. Phillip is only 24 (!) and is already on the same path. The conversation is a wake up call and motivates him to pick up the pace.

On the drama front, Mission Slimpossible gets wind that The Regulators don't want to be bossed around, so they tell No Excuses Josh that they are going to vote for The Regulators instead of No Excuses. Josh runs and tells The Regulators, who get really pissed, and The Regulators talk to the outsiders (Double Chocolate, Slenderellas, Flabulous, and No Excuses) into voting for a member of "The Orphanage". Their choice? The newly hobbled Rocker Moms. If Mission Slimpossible loses one of their core alliances, they will lose their stronghold on the votes and voters.

At the house vote, Mission Slimpossible gives immunity to A Pair of Nuts. But who will be joining Flabulous in the bottom two at the third elimination ceremony?

Mission Slimpossible: From 484 lbs to 475 lbs- 9 lbs lost- 1.86% BW (immune AGAIN)

A Pair of Nuts: From 525 lbs to 516 lbs- 9 lbs lost- 1.71% BW (immune-and one funny joke this week!)

Flabulous: From 624 lbs to 614 lbs- 10 lbs lost- 1.60% BW The bar is set! Who's joining?

Deep Dish: From 428 lbs to 423 lbs- 5 lbs lost- 1.17% BW- SAFE

Slenderellas: From 581 lbs to 574 lbs- 7 lbs lost- 1.20% BW- SAFE

Double Chocolate: From 427 lbs to 423 lbs- 4 lbs lost- .94% BW- SAFE

Grading Curves: From 476 lbs to 467 lbs- 9 lbs lost- 1.89% BW- SAFE

The Regulators: From 799 lbs to 781 lbs- 18 lbs lost- 2.25% BW- SAFE (Mission Slimpossible states they were never really on the chopping block- they just wanted to scare them.)

No Excuses: From 607 lbs to 595 lbs- 12 lbs lost- 1.98%- Not Safe

BUT Dan reveals that there was a tie between No Excuses and The Rocker Moms and since No Excuses percentage of body weight was greater than Flabulous, they are SAFE. GAME PLAY!

Rocker Moms: From 456 lbs to 450 lbs- 6 lbs lost- 1.32% BW- Not Safe and not enough weight lost to beat Flabulous.

The Rocker Moms are rockin' back to Texas, and "The Orphanage" is broken up. Now there are some new sheriffs in town- "The Family". Mission Slimpossible and A Pair of Nuts have some serious Regulators to deal with. I get the feeling it won't be pretty.
