'Thintervention': Episode 2 Recap

Moldy butt-cheek shakes, treadmill puking and fabulous one-liners

Gymbot Jackie Warner returned last night for the second episode of her Bravo weight-loss reality show, Thintervention with Jackie Warner. On her agenda? Burning fat with a grueling, push-to-muscle-failure workout, and mustering moral support by teaming everyone up. It also proved to be the night of one-liners:

Bryan: “If I eat chicken or fish one more time, I’m going to shoot someone.”

Joe: “Nothing about Nikki’s behavior looks like someone who wants to lose weight. And that’s why she looks like an orca.”

Nikki: “I can smell armpits everywhere I turn.”

Bryan: (On Nikki puking during a workout): “I think it’s because she was out with Mr. Goose last night. Mr. Grey Goose, that is.”

Stacy: “It tastes like moldy butt cheeks.” (of Jackie’s shake)  *Learn how to make Jackie’s secret shake here.

Joe: “What I like about Nikki is how great her life is. Cocktail this, cocktail that, a little lunch, have another cocktail. It’s too bad she looks like Chris Farley doing it.”

Stacy: “I already have breasts, that’s enough weight on my chest. So 20 pounds of sand on the chesticles is not really conducive to a proper workout.”

Nikki: "You can’t put fat people out in the heat, put more chubby on them, and ask them to run around. It’s going to be madness. It’s going to be Lord of the Flies."

Warner paired everyone up to teach them the importance of cultivating a storng support system when losing weight. They were instructed to plan a joint workout and meal and learn about each other.

- Mandy and Jeana were put together because they have similar weight-loss goals (both used to earn a living based on their looks and want to bring their sexy back). They worked out with Mandy’s son’s hot Israeli martial arts instructor.

- Much to Joe’s initial consternation, he was matched up with Nikki, with whom he boxed. But they eventually wound up bonding during a hill workout.

- Shay and Stacy were paired together because they’re the weakest, physically, and Jackie thought they could inspire each other. Instead, they wound up lying down and talking about food. Joe calls them “Lazy and Lazier.”

- Bryan and Kim went jogging and won the hill workout competition, but Kim hurt her hand, which wound up swelling beyond recognition. Her greatest fear came true when it was diagnosed as lymphedema (often a side effect of cancer treatment), and she was forced to leave the show. (She explained that she’s not willing to sacrifice her health to appease other people: “I like myself too much.”) Bryan attended his reward dinner at Jackie’s house, where he was rewarded with a low-cal vodka soda and was asked intimate questions about how his sex life has changed with his weight gain.

During a group therapy session, Bryan and Nikki opened up about how painful childhood events may have paved the way to their issues with food. (Nikki’s mom died early and her father left her to parent herself; Bryan was sexually abused at age 3 by his babysitter’s son, and his mother never did anything about it.)

Finally, there were weigh-ins. Unhappy with the relatively low weight-loss numbers, Jackie vows to return next week in full-on bitch mode. Stay tuned!
