Tim Sabean came in to explain something – but Howard quickly changed the subject to Tim's weight gain. Tim claimed he'd only put on "about 10lbs" – Howard called bullshit. Tim insisted he wasn't lying ("I swear to God!") and promised to go 'hardcore' after the holidays: "I don't go crazy like I used to but I'm going hardcore – really – after the holidays." HowardTV's Brian Phelan came in to confess that he'd also put on a few pounds, estimating his current weight as "around 250-260lbs."
Howard was unsatisfied with the estimate and had Brian step on the in-studio scale – he came in at 258lbs. Brian seemed unfazed by his condition: "I'm content with my life, man. I love it." Howard also noted that Brian had brought in his annual holiday bagel feast from the House of Bagels on Long Island, and everyone was stuffing their faces with bagels this morning.
