Supposedly, the point of ABC's "Wife Swap" is for both families to learn something from the shared experience of living someone else's life, but some participants are better teachers than students.

Exercise enthusiast Carol set about whipping the overweight DiBellas into shape during her time with the family, leading father Leo to reexamine his life choices.

"I was getting emotional, 'cause I do want to be around for my family. I don’t want to die. I want to be healthy. You don’t realize it unless someone tells you," he admitted after a weigh-in revealed that he was obese. Carol was somewhat condescending, but the tough love paid off, with the family resolving to exercise even after the wives had swapped back.

"Wife Swap" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
