You know we’re nearing the end when we reach this little milestone- one where the contestants become the trainers!
It’s after the elimination and the trainers are waiting for the contestants to arrive back in the house. They find out that Bek was eliminated, leaving Bek as the sole white team member. They discuss what went down. Through this, Michelle sees a softened Margie. The Commando asks them what they’re going to do to become one of the final three. Michelle then takes Margie into the kitchen to battle her diet problem- by posting pictures of Michelle saying ‘I’m watching you’ all over the place!
The contestants then head to the gym, which has been closed off! Kasey doesn’t stick to the signage and bursts in to see a video containing footage of the trainers slugging the contestants in training sessions. They are then told that it is time to train the trainers! They can all expect a hard training session.
Opinion point: Which trainer would you like to train?
After the break, the trainers find out what is going on. They are asked to go down to the bunker where footage of the contestants ‘warning’ of something is played. ‘Payback’s a bitch’, ‘be afraid, be very afraid’ are just some of the messages. It’s time to train the trainers. In the gym, Michelle gets into it with Margie placing her straight into the treadmills. Margie wants her to vomit. During the session, Margie compliments Michelle’s arse, which is just contestant gold at its finest.
It’s absolutely brilliant to see the Commando go through his paces. I think it’s probably the best one to watch because Commando has been such an elusive and powerful character in the show before becoming a more seasoned trainer.
Tiffiny also gets the trainer treatment! Shannan also feels the brunt of Brenda. The slaughter continues after the break, and they are beginning to sweat. Margie is just a genius at this! Shannan though is slaughtering this. Alex has learnt a lot from it and even I think the Commando was a bit taken aback by his confidence. Kasey makes Tiffiny break the thickest part of wood she’s ever broken. See, even Tiffiny’s learning new things! Brenda decides to bring Shannan back to Switzerland with a bathtub filled with ice water! Despite the fact I don’t think this was entirely Brenda’s idea, this is GOLD!
He does it though- so good on him! At the end of the session, the trainers take a break and share the pain. They genuinely look beat. But, there’s something else waiting for them- but they don’t want to think about that.
Opinion point: How do you think the trainers went?
Outside, they find sumo suits waiting for them! They’re gonna wrestle! Fat man style! I guess the one thing I got out of this is seeing the Commando at his most vulnerable. Shannan wins round one against the Commando before body slamming him. It’s then Michelle v. Tiffiny, which Michelle ends up winning.
But, now that train the trainer is done, the roles are reversed again for….yep, a training session!
Yep, this has got to hurt- they are made to work for it! I’d hate to be in that training session. The sessions are the carbon copy of what the contestants gave to the trainers.
In the lounge room, the trainers say it’s time for a new challenge. It’s time to train Australia.
Tomorrow, they will be training 1,000 people! The next day, they head to Sydney Olympic Park where the 1,000 people they are promised are waiting- but many of them aren’t overweight. I think it’d be great for them to train 1,000 overweight people- considering Shannan was heralding the message that 60% of us are overweight.
The trainers head on stage to welcome the contestants to Train Australia. The contestants then come on stage one by one, beginning with Kasey for the warm-up. She makes them warrior cry before getting into some more serious work out routines. The next one up is Brenda who seems to do really well. Some people can’t keep up but Brenda does well to keep their heart rate up through jogging exercises. Margie is next but we won’t see Alex until tomorrow.
That ends the episode.
