Then it's costume time, and we learn that this show is frugal! They've taken some old costumes and frankensteined them into new dresses. Alicia is the only one we see, which is a weird trend tonight. She was the only magazine interview we saw, and she had the longest clip package with her meeting with Dr. H. Highly suspicious. Methinks it means she's either the eventual winner, or she's going home, so they want to squeeze as many insanely enthusiastic faces out of her as they can before she goes.
Back in the theater, MJW says that the last two contestants called, lost the least weight. So the first big loser is Alicia. And there's another clip package, with her working out and practicing and talking some more. She's doing the Cha Cha to "Can't Get You Outta My Head" and acting more goofy than sexy, but she dances it pretty well. Mayte says that she took control, and it was good. She gives her a 9. Lisa Ann says that she is cha cha, whatever that means, but it equals a 10. Danny calls her a comeback queen, and gives her a 10. Her average is 9.7 for this round, but 8.4 for both together. She loses 3.5 pounds, 1.62 percent of her body weight, which makes her total score a 10.02. She starts fake-crying when MJW tells her that she's lost 45 pounds so far.
Next up, and out of the bottom two is Ruben. He dances the Viennese Waltz to "Ordinary Day." I'm not a waltz expert, but he seems to glide around and keep his elbows up, and lifts his partner so easily. Mayte loved it! She gives him a 10. Lisa Ann says he committed to standard ballroom hold, though she wanted it to be a little bit bigger, so she gives him a 9. Danny says it had finesse, thinks it was perfectly sized and he loved it, so he gives it a 10. That averages out to a 9.7, and a 9.2 combined. He loses 7.1 lbs. Holy crap! That's impressive, at this point. It's 2.79 percent of his body weight. That gives him an 11.99 and puts him in the lead. He's lost 66.9 pounds so far, and his top score sends him straight to the finale.
MJW makes her sad face when she announces the bottom two. Pinky goes first with a Cha Cha to "Just Fine." She looks hot in a sparkly silver dress with lots of fringe. She's got some fun moves, but is working the sexy angle and not going for comedy like Alicia. Mayte wonders if Pinky's been sleeping with her heels on, because she's so strong on them, and she had great lines. Lisa Ann agrees and thinks that she's got the best upper body in the competition, although she does say she was a little stompy. Danny says that he's been a fan of hers from the beginning, but he didn't think she could actually win it... until now. She steps on the scale and she's lost 1.9 pounds, which is 1.17 percent of her body weight.
