Quickly, we move onto the next contestant: Trice. Last week, I was confused when she said she was from Englewood and Chicago, but it turns out that Englewood is a section of Chicago, so it actually made sense after all. Trice came into this week still marveling over her huge 11 pound weight loss and hoping to lose more this week. She's dancing to "I Love The Night Life." Her dance partner gave her a variety of moves and she executes them well and with awesome energy, so she shouldn't have any problems this week. Sure enough, Mayte loved it all, but not enough to give her a 9 or a 10. Just an 8. Lisa wants more connection with Trice and her partner and clearly took some cranky pills, so Trice just gets a 6. Danny is pleased that Trice took his advice last week and gives her an 8. So the professional dance people gave Trice an 8 but Lisa gave her a 6. Whatevs, Lisa. Trice has a 7.3 average combined with a percentage weight loss of 1.02, losing 2.7 pounds. Her total is 8.32. She celebrates with an awesome solo dance.
We're down to the final three. Whoever dances next, therefore, is not in the dreaded bottom two. And it's Tara, which means Brandon has sucked at weight loss two weeks in a row. Shameful. Tara had a bad week because she twisted her knee during rehearsal. That's not the bad part -- the bad part is she had to go to Dr. H for it. Tara is worried because she was not able to get in all the practice time she wanted due to her injury, but Dr. H gave her his very special, and probably not in the patient's best interests, approval to perform tonight. Hopefully, his medical opinion has improved since last season on The Biggest Loser when poor Laura was walking across tightropes and running half-marathons with a freaking hip fracture. Tara gets to dance to "Brick House," so that's awesome. But why hasn't anyone done "Knock on Wood?" That song is the greatest. Tara's routine incorporates the booty bump, so it should get high scores just for that. Hopefully her partner Michael threw in a few hustles to keep Lisa happy. Tara seems to do a good job despite her knee. Mayte gives her a 7 and praises her courage. Lisa is also proud of Tara, but someone peed in her cornflakes, so Tara gets a lowly 5. Why is Lisa so mean now? Danny didn't like Tara's routine, which isn't really her fault, and gives her a 5. Tara's average is 5.7 and her percentage is 1.63 from a weight loss of 3.8 pounds. Tara is very happy with her 7.33 total because it's still higher than Alicia. Alicia sobs because she was probably praying that Tara's injury would take her out of contention and keep Alicia around another week. Ha! Tara is a trooper.
