Leah was a lock for the contest. Fred guessed she was about 145 lbs. so Howard had her get on the scale and she weighed 147. Howard wanted her to get down into the 120's. Keira also had enough votes to ensure a spot in the contest so she got on the scale and weighed in at 130. Kim and Talita were tied for third and nobody really new how to pick just one. Howard and Gary picked Kim because they thought she needed to loose more weight than Talita, making her a better contestant. Fred and Artie thought Talita was too hot to pass up, leaving the decision to Robin. Robin picked Talita and Howard started wondering if he should override everyone's votes in favor of Kim. Gary thought they could get away with having four finalists which was OK with Howard.
Tom came in and said that the sponsor, Bally, was OK with it too - so Kim and Talita were in. Gange reminded Howard that the final 2 hadn't weighed in so Kim and Talita each hopped on the scale, weighing 149 and 145 respectively. Howard reminded the girls that they now had 3 months to work hard and get in shape.
Gary predicted that they would all dump their boyfriends by the time this was over. This prompted Ralph to call in with his predictions. Ralph thought that Leah would drop out of the contest because she really needs to lose more weight than she thinks and that Talita would lose the weight, but would quickly regain it after the contest - kind of like Gary.
Gary said he was so inspired by the girls that he would try and get back in shape himself.
