On “Bar Rescue,” Jon Taffer encountered the grossest bar he had ever seen — and that’s saying a lot. This Austin bar, Headhunters, was full of cockroaches and mold, and the owner didn’t seem to care.
“There’s a cockroach in there. That’s unacceptable,” Jon observed. “She was gonna serve that to me … It’s the worst bar I’ve ever seen.” The place was infested with roaches, which the owner claimed was common for Austin establishments.
To make matters worse, he discovered a mold problem on the ceilings. “There’s mold everywhere in these ceilings. This place has never been cleaned. All that is mold growing. It’s not connected to the ceilings — it’s falling in your drinks. That means your drinking mold,” Jon told the staff.
On “Mob Wives,” Renee Graziano was almost done with her rehab for an addiction to prescription anxiety medication. Before she completed the program, she had a emotional breakthrough with her son AJ during a therapy session.
“I know you wanna do it for me, but I want you to do it for yourself. Then do it for me,” AJ told his mom. “She’s putting people before herself all the time. You have to love yourself before you can love someone else,” he continued.
“I’m … sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you,” Renee cried. But AJ forgave his mom. “I forgive you. Just change this time. It doesn’t matter,” he said.
“Swamp People” was back with a season premiere that featured alligator wrestling in the water. Not that this was the intended plan going into the capture of 12-foot, 650-pound alligator, but Jay Paul Molinere had to improvise.
After shooting the alligator, Jay Paul realized that it was only injured. So to capture him, Jay Paul jumped into the water — with the gator! His father, R.J. Molinere Jr., was on hand, trying to give his son words of encouragement. It’s hard to fathom what it must be like to see your son putting a massive alligator into a headlock.
Jay Paul managed just that, which ultimately worked. R.J. said he was scared the gator would go into a death roll, which could have easily drowned Jay Paul. But everything came out all right in the end.
It was a milestone of a different sort for Gina on “The Biggest Loser.” The oldest — and smallest — contestant on campus has continued to impress with big numbers on the scale, but she’s struggled with confidence. But when Danni granted her the opportunity to see her husband, he brought something that proved to be the kind of confidence booster you can’t get in the gym.
Gina admitted that she’d gained more than 100 pounds since her wedding, and that one of the casualties of her weight gain was her wedding ring. It got to the point that it simply didn’t fit anymore. With his visit to The Ranch, her husband brought the ring to see if she’d lost enough that it would fit.
She had and it did. “The idea that I got to a point where I couldn’t wear it? How shameful,” Gina said. “I forgot how good it feels to wear it, and to look down at it and think about, and think about him.”
This week, the designers were given a task perhaps more intimidating than anything seen on “Project Runway” to date. They were asked to design a dress for Heidi Klum. Ben Mach was already feeling pressure after two back-to-back losses, and the additional stress caused a lot of emotional baggage from his past to come up.
He’d suffered a lot of emotional abuse in a relationship, leaving his sense of self-worth in tatters. “It’s taken a lot for me to build myself back up and to build up my confidence as a person, but to also build up my confidence as a designer,” he said.
Unfortunately, the additional emotional turmoil only made his work suffer even more. His dress almost didn’t make it to the runway at all, and when it did get there, it wasn’t very well received.
Domonique gathered the women of “The Sisterhood” for a sex therapy session. But these are all pastors’ wives, so it was a Christian sex therapy session. And yes, that is a thing.
It turned out to be an animated session, as well, with plenty of callbacks from the parishioners as if it were a church service.
“We gotta keep it hot and poppin’ the bedroom. Amen. Can I get a witness?” the therapist asked the assembled women. Of course, she got plenty of them.
