Shedding For The Wedding: on The CW is a reality competition that follows the weight-loss journey of nine couples with the winners receiving the wedding of their dreams! In tonight’s episode the couples get to pick out their wedding bands!
The remaining six couples are: Laura and Austin, Lindsay and Chase, Dawn and Adam, Allison and David, Valerie and David along with Samantha and Brooks. So far the couple’s have selected their dream wedding gowns and tuxedos, cakes for the reception, flower arrangements for their big day and tonight will select their rings! This week the couples join wedding coordinator Brian Worley to pick out their dream wedding rings.
Back in the gym, Chase wants to be a police officer but has failed all the physical tests he has taken so far. Trainer Nicky brings in a six foot wall and asks Chase to give it a try. Chase knows how much is riding on this and decides to go for it. He runs, then jumps and makes it over the wall. Chase achieves this very important personal goal. The trainers suggest the other guys should take a shot at jumping over the wall too. They try it one-by-one, but when David attempts to get over the wall, he ends up slamming his knee into the wall. He is visibly upset, so much so he starts to have a panic attack and is rushed to the hospital. The other couples are shocked and wonder whether Allison and David will stay in the competition. After getting checked out at the hospital Allison and David return to finish the competition.
The challenge this week is for each couple to sit in a separate swing suspended 45 feet above ground while each holding onto to a huge ring. Fear of heights and endurance push the couples to their limits. Slowly, the couples break, dropping their rings and loosing the challenge but for Valerie and David things go terribly wrong. Valerie is in excruciating pain and is rushed to the hospital. Meanwhile, Dawn and Adam hold on for an hour and win the task. They will receive their dream rings and have a one-pound penalty they must assign to one of the other couple’s. Dawn and Adam select Allison and David to get the one-pound penalty.
Back at the house, Valerie and David return with news from the doctor that Valerie suffered multiple back spasms and needs to take it easy for a while.
During the weigh-in Lindsay and Chase and Allison and David are the bottom two. They will battle it out in the “Til Death Do Us Part” elimination challenge. Host Samantha Rue informs them it is the toughest elimination challenge so far. The challenge is for everyone to stay on Stairmasters for as long as they can. But for Lindsay and Chase it’s the end of the line and they’re sent home. But remember, all the couple’s sent home still have the chance to win something big. In the finale, the couple that kept up the weight-loss challenge at home and shed the most pounds will win their dream honeymoon!
