Artie said that if Scott wins, he'll probably get a disease from losing weight too quickly. Artie also said he brought his checkbook this morning because he promised everyone on his team a grand when they lost.
Artie gained 3 pounds to 296! Artie said he's turned to Reese's peanut butter cups. He had nine yesterday, at two in the morning. "Two super size 4-packs and a single." Howard said 300 pounds will be a landmark. Artie agreed, saying this is a highpoint, which is wake-up call; "I'll get into this week".

Benjy lost 9 more pounds to 228 pounds, which he noted meant that Scott as still losing.
Scott said he's got a month to catch up, and continued to accuse Benjy of manipulating his weight. Benjy replied that only Jason had a chance, but even he won't be able to do it. Benjy can't wait to have the F'you money, adding that he hasn't even gone "crazy" yet. Benjy then asked Scott if he thought his family would be happier with his life insurance money. With Artie's team eliminated, Tim's team and Benjy are going forward. Artie then wrote checks out to his team, including Jon, who Artie had to ask how to spell his name.Artie thought Benjy would win because he's the craziest. Howard agreed, noting that Benjy was a wrestler so he knows how to cut weight. Scott replied that he had beaten 5 guys out of 8. Artie answered that the prize for third was nothing.
