Challenge: In each round, they had to lift one of their legs for a certain amount of time while on as many as two moving platforms. The first round had a five-second time limit, while each successive round added five more to the clock. The last one standing won a one-pound bonus that they had to use at the next weigh-in.
Round 1 Order:
1. Jessica Delfs (chosen by Frado Dinten because he was the season's Biggest Loser up to this point; from that point on, whoever had the last successful balancing act got to pick who went next in a round)
2. Brendan Donovan- OUT
3. Frado- OUT
4. Patrick House
5. Elizabeth Ruiz- OUT
6. Ada Wong
Round 2 Order (10 seconds):
1. Patrick- OUT
2. Jessica- OUT
3. Mark Pinhasovich
4. Lisa Mosley
