Welcome back to another incredible episode of Crazy Brady’s Boot Camp! I am your host, Sugar Maple Bough. When we last left our contestants, they were locked in a room full of sugary goodness! They all made it out safely with very little damage done. This is the last day of the week, and we all know that means it is time to say goodbye to yet another contestant. Voting gets harder and harder each week, and I’m sure glad it’s not up to me to decide! Let’s catch up with our lovely contestants before they embark upon their last challenge for the week.
Braylon: I was just thinking about how I can’t believe I’m still here! I started out as the underdog, and I probably still am. I’m so grateful to all of you out there who have continued to keep me on this show! I’m glad that you saw the value of it for me even before I saw it myself. I have learned so much about myself here…this experience has been invaluable!
Grant: I don’t know why I still get so nervous on voting days. I don’t know why I still can’t keep it together! It’s not like I don’t put in the work. And it’s not like I’ve done something to deserve to get voted off. I guess I just feel so intimidated by the other contestants. They’re so much more likable than I am. Clearly I have some esteem issues to get through still.
I talked to Acacia about it. She’s always so encouraging. I wish I had half the confidence she has.
Brady came and joined us while I was whining about it. That was so embarrassing. I hope he didn’t hear much. Then of course Nico came in all bright eyed and bushy tailed. I tell ya, ever since he got the courage to start talking to Braylon, he’s been a different man.
I remember those days after I first started talking to Clarice…nothing could get me down! I’m happy for him. I hope they keep in touch after the show is over. I think they’re good for each other!
Nico: If you would have told me a year ago or even six months ago that I would have a good group of friends, would be in the best shape of my life, and would have the confidence to be in the presence of such beautiful young women at my age, I would have laughed in your face. When I look at myself in the mirror and I think about what I do every day, how I get along with everyone, and the potential my future holds now, I don’t even recognize myself…and that’s a good thing.
After breakfast, Brady assembled the contests in the gym to explain the last challenge.
Brady: You four…you’re brave. You’re fighters. Not that the others weren’t because they definitely were. But, you’re still in the fight. Don’t slack off! Don’t get soft. And don’t get discouraged. I can look at all of you and tell that you are very close to being as lean as you can be and as muscular as you can be. Remember, it’s not simply about what the tape measurer says. The voters look at your attitude, drive, and your work ethic. Don’t let them down…unless you’re ready to go home that is.
Brady: Today, you are going to revisit the first challenge you ever did. Remember the first endurance challenge on the treadmill? Some of you didn’t even have the skill level to do it before, and now look at you! You should all be proud of what you’ve accomplished even if you go home tonight. So, the game is simple, select the endurance challenge program on your treadmills and outlast everyone! If you do, you will be immune in tonight’s vote.
Brady: Go get ‘em!
Nico: It’s a good thing I didn’t stand on the other side of her. Yeah, it would have been nice to run next to Braylon, but I would have wanted to talk to her…and look at her. That wouldn’t have been fair to her, and I definitely wouldn’t last. Besides, Brady would probably rip my head off.
Brady: All right people let’s go let’s go! Start time is 12:15! How long can you run? GO GO GO!
Acacia: I can run for as long as I need to with the proper mindset. Focus. That is what this is all about.
Braylon: I was thinking about the first time I did this challenge. I was tripping and stumbling all over the place.
Now look at me! I can keep my back straight, I breathe properly…I’ve got a nice little rhythm going. Brady is right! Our success has very little to do with what our measurements tell us. It’s all the intangibles like form…and endurance!
Nico: It’s been one hour and I haven’t fallen yet. The first time we ever worked out together I was the first to fall…and I always fall pretty hard.
I was smiling because I felt so good. I mean, I’m an old guy. I was having trouble with my knees when I first got here. I think I’m in better shape now than when I was when I used to work out with my little brother. No matter what happens tonight, I know I’m a winner. I’ve achieved far more than what I came here to achieve.
Grant: I was having bittersweet thoughts. I was thinking about Clarice and how proud she would be when she sees me, but then I started missing her.
…and then that happened. I guess I should keep thoughts of my fiancé out of my mind while using gym equipment, huh? Clarice, if you’re watching…I love you, and I miss you every day!
Brady: Ok! Braylon, you ran for two hours and 23 minutes! Excellent work!
Braylon: Woot! Yeah, I was the first one to finish the first time too, but I bet you I didn’t run for almost two and a half hours!
Brady: Grant! Two hours 24 minutes! Nice!
Brady: Two hours 27 minutes, Nico! See…you lasted longer than the two youngest people here! Age has nothing to do with anything. Remember that!
Nico: Yessir! Wow…I see.
Brady: Two hours 44 minutes, Acacia! You’ve won immunity again! Congratulations!
Acacia: Thank you, Brady.
Acacia: See? Focus.
Later that night…
Here we are back again in J2G Studio E on the Crazy Brady’s Boot Camp stage for our third vote! There is only one week remaining and one more vote before the finale, people! How amazing is that? Quite, if you ask me. As always, I am joined by our beautiful celebrity coaches, the illustrious Brady and Viviana!
Thank you both again for sacrificing your time away from your family to help these wonderful contestants get their lives back. Speaking of the contestants, let’s take a moment and hear from them first. Let’s start with Acacia. What would you like the people to know?
Acacia: I would just like to say thank you. Thank you for believing in me as much as I believed in myself. There is only so much one can do alone. It takes a village to succeed. You have been my village. Thank you.
Grant: I know I get a little whiny sometimes, and I have a lot more improvements I need to make. But, I really appreciate everyone out there who understands why I still need to be here. I can’t thank you all enough!
Braylon: I am proud of what I have accomplished here. I didn’t think I would get this far. Everyone out there saw something in me, and I thank you. I am now in the place where I can truly say that, if this is my last night, and I go home, I am a winner no matter what happens. I love who I am! All of me…my curves and all. I am proud of who I’ve become. Thank you!
Nico: Hi. I’m not sad. I’m just really sore…and sleepy. I did the hill challenge as a last chance workout, heh. I’m really happy to be here despite what my face says. I’ve learned so much. You guys out there believed in me when I didn’t completely believe in myself, and I don’t know how to thank you for that. Like Braylon here, if I went home tonight, I’d go home proud. I feel like a winner too.
Sugar: Well, there you have it, folks! Our contestants love you, and so do I! The polls are open now! Go vote!
