In the armed forces, they say never to leave a fallen soldier behind.
However, on the eighth week of this season’s Celebrity Fit Club, the blue
team didn’t seem to get that memo. During a particularly grueling military-inspired challenge during trainer Harvey’s Hell Week, Tanisha Thomas took a nasty spill. Though teammate Sebastian Bach carried the often-demanding contestant’s backpack, no one checked to see if she was okay to go on. “They deserted her. Everybody was going through a difficult time, but they forgot what being a team is all about,” the VH1 series’ resident life coach Rhonda Britten tells In Touch. The blue team ultimately lost the challenge to the red team, and Sebastian, KayCee Stroh, and Kevin Federline were left feeling ashamed when an injured Tanisha was taken to the hospital.
Despite Harvey’s punishing words for the group, Rhonda believes the exasperated team wasn’t entirely to blame for their actions. “She is like the girl who cried wolf. When is she bluffing, and when is she actually hurt? The blue team is having a hard time distinguishing that,” Rhonda added of the dramatic, tempermental Tanisha. Will the blue team pull it together to win the season in next week’s final episode? Watch next Monday to find out.
