The only thing I must comment on here is LG's weight loss. I was so used to seeing a beefier Ben that when I saw him in this episode it was startling how much thinner he was. :ohmy You can definitely see the weight loss in his face, along the jowl line. Does anybody know the backstory about this? Was LG recovering from an illness or did he just go on a crash diet?

I remember reading that he went on a rice diet to lose weight, so I googled it and found this article that mentions it:

It says he lost 30 pounds (13.6 kg)
