Even though it looked very cold in Indiana, Michelle came out barefoot onto the porch and sidewalk. Ellen wondered what inspired Michelle to keep going. She said her kids because they’re the love of her life. Michelle said her car is still in the shop because the transmission went out. Ellen said she didn’t need to get it out because Ford wanted to help her get back on her feet with a 2015 Ford Escape.

Michelle and Jeannie ran down the street, where the Ford Escape was lit under a streetlight, even though Michelle was still barefoot. Ellen went to a break, telling Michelle to get a coat and some socks.
