Pinky and Tara join Brandon and MJW on stage. Mara gets to stay seated, even though she still could lose, as MJW reminds her. "It's elimination time!" MJW says, sounding just as perky as always, which is entirely inappropriate at this time. We'll start with Pinky. If she gets a 6.7, she'll knock Tara off the show. Mayte gives her a 7. Good news. Danny gives her an 8. Better news. Lisa gets to show her score last for some reason, and fakes like she's going to give Pinky a low score before showing an 8. That gives Pinky an overall score of 8.48 and means that Tara is off the show for sure. They didn't really show too much of her, so I never really knew much about her, other than the fact that she's a mom. MJW gives Tara the most insincere-sounding "sorry" and side-hug ever and Tara leaves the stage.
Mara takes the stage next to Brandon for the second elimination. I want Brandon to stay, but I don't know what his problem is with losing weight and I think Mara deserves to be here more. He needs a 6.7 to stay in the game. Mayte gave him a 6, because that's her favorite number. Uh oh. Lisa also gave Brandon a 6, so it's not looking good for Brandon at all. Sure enough, as a single tear falls down Brandon's cheek, Danny draws it out before revealing that he also gave Brandon a 6. That means Brandon is off the show. The audience is livid, but it's not the judges' fault -- Brandon just couldn't lose weight. And I don't think he'll do any better at home. I worry about Brandon. All of the contestants are sorry to see Brandon go, and MJW just smiles away at a tearful and defeated Brandon, whose heart is broken. Learn how to talk to people, MJW. Also, she spends way more time with Brandon than she did with Tara, which is unfair. Brandon says he'll try his hardest to keep up the weight loss, but he doesn't have much hope and neither do I. And on that bummer note, I'm out!
