          Staying Alive in 2005

          The Five Contenders

          Dr. Phil is challenging everyone across America who’s made it their New Year’s resolution to lose weight and get healthy, to master his seven keys and change their life for good. Five contenders are leading the way, but one of them will be kicked off to make room for a dedicated viewer who’s following the Challenge from home.

          No Cheating!
          Hidden cameras are watching every move the Challengers make to see who’s giving in to cravings and temptations. A surprise drug test for diet aids reminds them that this is a lifestyle change — not a quick fix.

          Checking In
          The five fearless Challengers discuss their struggles and triumphs since the first show, and they get weighed in to see who will be booted off the Challenge.

          See how they’re doing.
          Weigh-In Wednesdays
          Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty is at the Mall of America signing up an enthusiastic crowd. “We’ve declared 2005 as the year of fitness,” he explains. “Minnesota is a very healthy state in general, but we have problems with obesity.”

          Top Three Contenders
          Peggy, Marcie and Brenda are mastering the Seven Keys, and one of them will kick off a Challenger. Who will it be?

          And the winner is…
