So now we've got Tara, Brandon, and Pinky left. Based on these contestants' previous showings, who do you think is called next, thus avoiding the dreaded bottom two? That's right, it's Tara. Brandon, you buffoon! I love your dancing but I hate your weight loss. Anyway, Tara is thrilled with her progress thus far, and has already gone down several sizes of jeans and is looking forward to fitting into a size 8. She and Michael are dancing to "Livin' La Vida Loca," and it is not good. Even I can tell that it is not good. They aren't in sync, she's moving too slowly, and the back bend over Michael's leg goes wrong. Mayte hated it, and gives Tara a 4. Lisa says Tara isn't a Latin dancer, but she's happy for her for getting out of the Mom jeans. Mom jeans isn't a size, Lisa. It's a style. Anyway, she gives Tara a 5. Danny talks over Tara in his haste to hate on her dancing, saying that he could tell that she wasn't confident this week, and that's why it didn't go well for her. He gives her a 4, so I think it's safe to say that Tara will be leaving us this week. MJW dubs in some encouraging words about Tara possibly being saved by a good weight loss, and then Tara steps on the scale and hopes she lost 15 pounds this week. She lost 4.2, giving her a percentage of 1.85. She needed to do a lot better. Her total score is 6.15, which is 1.25 less than the second-to-last-place Mara. Ouch.
Back from break, Pinky is the first of the two weight not-losers to go. She was all about losing weight this week, which is pathetic when you consider the fact that we now know she didn't accomplish that goal. She's exercising and the nutritionist seems to think it's a good idea for Pinky to drop her daily calorie intake down to 951. On The Biggest Loser, they're always saying that people need to eat more. Is that just a ploy to cram in a product placement, or are they lying, or is Meg the nutritionist incompetent? I guess it's the last one, since Pinky didn't lose much weight this week despite her starvation diet. Pinky and Mr. Lucky, whose name still makes me laugh my ass off, are dancing to "Pon De Replay." There's a lot of footwork and spins, and then there's like a triple back bend that ends the dance with Pinky hovering over a crouching Mr. Lucky. It looks really cool. But Mayte didn't think Pinky did a good job dancing in heels, something Pinky admittedly doesn't have much experience with. She looked fine to me, but I didn't get to see her feet very much. Lisa agrees with Mayte that Pinky was "a little stompy," although Lisa thinks that just might be Pinky's hip-hop dance experience coming through. Before Lisa's even done talking, Pinky cuts her off with "thank you so much." Ha! Danny is not happy. Not about Pinky's dancing, but about her weight loss. He's going to be really mad at Brandon, then. He applauds Pinky's dancing ability and even gives her props (said in a very English manner: "props to you") for doing such intricate footwork so quickly in heels. On the scale, Pinky only lost 1.4 pounds this week for a percentage of 0.78.
