Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp Recap – Episode 7 – 10 Things We Loved About This Week’s Show

|

This week’s show was all about mind over matter…

Some people (ahem, Bobbaaaay!) took that to superheroic extremes.

The first thing we loved about this episode?

- Mountains made out of molehills.

cfc7_7_2

Almost everyone sniveled about Harvey’s track, which scaled up a hill and back down…

cfc7_7_1

In fact, Tanisha even sobbed over it. A lot of good it did her, as she ended up in dead last place…

…as her team’s dead weight. Which brings us to our next item…

- Tanisha’s task.

cfc7_7_7

When told that her dead-weight task was going to be transporting horse manure, Tanisha said, “I’m a diva, I don’t even clean up my own s***. You want me to clean up horses***?” That’s funny, and also…disconcerting. If she doesn’t clean up her own s***, who does? Does she have a wiper on staff? Anyway, this was all worth it to watch her struggle and pout. “This some bulls***…no, this some horses***,” she whined. Indeed, Tanisha, indeed.

- Sebastian’s Kaycee impression.

After all, who doesn’t love some jazz hands every now and then?

- Nicole’s shirt.

cfc7_7_9

It’s a little weird that the layout is Run-DMC-esque (after all, they weren’t gangsta) — the one I have is in the N.W.A. font. Still, who could argue with the ironic sentiment?

- Internet bash-back.

cfc7_7_8

In group, Rhonda confronted everyone with “bad press” in the form of what were most likely anonymous comments on the Internet. Sebastian summed up online hating directed toward him: “The Internet is some kid in a trailer park going, ‘I want to be in a band, f*** him!’” Really, not everything is about jealousy (there’s a sporting component to mockery), but Seb’s attack on ageism…

cfc7_7_gif3

…(“If someone doesn’t think I’m hot, guess what? I was 19 once. I’m 41 now. It’s gonna happen to you too, motherf***er!”) was totally dead-on.

- Bobby’s philosophy.

cfc7_7_10

The most impressive results of this exercise involved Kevin owning up to some of the gossip out there (“I was a f***in’ lazy bum and sat around the house and didn’t do anything for a long time”) and Bobby’s extremely down-to-earth take on being a discussed personality: “That’s what we get into this business for, for people to talk about us, people to remember who we are, what we are. So, as long as you spell my name right, I’m cool.”

It seems as though he’s come a long way from his “why don’t they just let me live” days. Our guy is growing up right before our eyes. Love this man.

- The resolution to this comment-reading.

Rhonda then had all of the celebs make up their own gossip headlines to reclaim their stories in a light agreeable to them:

I don’t know what I love more: the fact that Sebastian used this opportunity to plug his work, or that it made it to air two months too late.

- Bobby’s excuse.

Bobby crapped out of a workout led by walking/swimming/running/living inspiration, Sarah Reinertsen.

cfc7_7_18

His excuse for jumping ship and having to be driven to the end of their running path?

cfc7_7_19

“I got a Charlie horse in my knee!” Oh, and there was also, “It’s a hernia that keeps popping out here!”

cfc7_7_20

Someone get this guy a medical degree (or maybe an explorer badge), ’cause he’s making trailblazing discoveries of things that never before were discovered where he’s discovering them. Really, you could have told that this would go badly from the start…

cfc7_7_17

…just by looking at his face when the challenge was announced.

- Kevin’s confrontation with his past (at last!).

cfc7_7b_1

Obviously, Shar and Kevin have been dancing around each other and their history for this entire season. It was extremely cathartic, then, for Rhonda to sit Kevin down, explain the toll Shar’s association with him has taken on her life and career, and say the words: “Part of the public’s problem is it’s hard to like you when there’s no remorse. You haven’t said what you need to say.” Look, Kevin’s emerged from this show as a likable figure (certainly more so than ever in his career), but let’s not lose our heads to love. Sometimes everyone needs their ass handed to them.

- The results.

Jay’s goal was 4 lbs. – he lost it.

cfc7_7b_2

He has now surpassed his goal for the season!

Kevin’s goal was 4 lbs. – he lost 2.

cfc7_7b_3

Nicole’s goal was 3 lbs. – she lost 5.

cfc7_7b_4

Kaycee’s goal was 3 lbs. – she lost 2.

cfc7_7b_4b

Shar’s goal was 3 lbs. – she lost 1.

cfc7_7b_5

Sebastian’s goal was 4 lbs. – he lost 1.

cfc7_7b_6

Bobby’s goal was 4 lbs. – he lost 2.

cfc7_7b_7

Tanisha’s self-imposed goal was 5 lbs. – she lost it!

cfc7_7b_8

The team breakdowns are:

cfc7_7b_11

The spread has widened considerably…but not for the two individuals with the highest Fit Factor points…

cfc7_7b_12

cfc7_7b_13

…they’re neck-and-neck as always. Harvey calls this an “old-fashioned dog fight,” but I think it’s more a new-fangled one. Mostly, I want to see them play tug o’ war using only their teeth.
