RTE viewers called on Campaign leader John and his wife Selena to have their own TV show.
The couple headbutted the kitchen as she tried to help him cook.
The pair also had conflicting views at the dinner table about John’s motivations.
“I know in my heart and soul that in two weeks, three weeks time, I’m going to hit a wall, but I don’t think you’ll be surprised,” John explains.
“I don’t care if I don’t get any followers, it doesn’t bother me. I’m doing this for me, number one and number two for you.”
Selena shared her worries in front of the camera and admitted that she wants John to do well.
She said: “He’s let us down in the past so he’s going to let the country down? And I don’t think he’s going to.
“I need to push him. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. It will never happen again.
“That’s what love stands for. All I’m doing is giving him a hard love. I’m his number one supporter in this.”
Fans think John’s attempt at the kitchen is hilarious.
Lesley said: “Show Selena her own show @OpTranRTE #OperationTransformation.”
Another wrote: “John and Selena need their own #OperationTransformation TV show.”
After this difficult love, there are also emotional moments
John’s son, Nathan, was in tears when he saw his parents speak so candidly about why Operation Transformation would help them.
John pulled Nathan and the rest of the family into his arms.
The Kelly continued to jog to support John.
“As soon as we walked in the door, we just had a feeling of love from everyone,” says Nathan.
“We may not see each other all the time, but there’s always love there.”
And John is grateful to have Selena by his side.
He said: “Selena is my rock. Seeing you will make me happy here and I don’t want to do this.
“She knows me inside and out, she knows my mood swings, she knows when I’m up, she knows when I’m down.
“I’d be lost without her, so I’ll be honest with you.”
John lost 7 pounds in the first week of hitting his 4 pound goal, and his steps were all over 10,000.
Fitness expert Karl Henry says: “Half kick at weightlifting, absolutely brilliant.
“The first week was a little bit easier, there’s a lot of fluid so that number will be a bit bigger but from where you started seven days ago to where you are now, you’ve had amazing changes.”
“I’ve done a lot more in the past week related to advocacy than I’ve done in the last year,” admits John.
“There’s no pressure, it’s the effort, it’s the incredible thing.”
His goal for the next week is to cook a Sunday meal for his family and lose another 3 pounds.
