The bell sounds, and the contestants jump and punch. No head injuries yet, and Julie gets herself in a nice groove. Julie is the round one winner, followed by Isabeau and Hollie. Nicole has the smallest number of hits, and is out. She says her goal was to not get out first, and to beat Neil, so she feels like a big loooo-ser. Sami asks Bill if he wants to continue, given his knee problems. He tells her to bring it. With the bag higher, the ladies continue to dominate. The winner for round two is Isabeau, followed by Hollie and Julie. Everyone is looking reeeallly tired. Bill and Neil were one hit apart‚Ä¶and it's Neil who is knocked out! Bill laughs with glee. It's Black on Black now, vying for the one-pound pass. The bags raise a little more, and Sami rings the bell again. She looks like she really likes doing that -- she kind of clenches her jaw and sets herself and just gives it a good dingy whack. It's nice to excel at something. The round three winner is Hollie, followed by Julie and Isabeau. This means Bill is out.
Final round! The bag lifts. It's really pretty high right now. Julie looks very determined, and says one pound in the competition is like gold. Like...a pound of gold. Or a pound of chocolate off of your ass. Hollie takes the lead in round four, while Isabeau and Julie fight to stay in it. When the final bell rings, thanks in no small part to a fine display of vigor by Sami, we learn that Hollie is victorious. Julie looks pissed, but she gives Hollie a hug anyway. Hollie says that she doesn't lose weight as fast as the others, and so she hopes the pass will be enough to keep her above the yellow line. She looks awfully sweaty, so it's good to know her effort was worth it.
Back at the Campus, Hollie munches on a slice of bacon-flavored Extra sugar free gum. The Black Team tells Jillian about the challenge and Hollie's victory. Jillian interviews that this has been a hard week for the Black Team, since Bill's knee and Hollie's ankle have been bothering them. She needs to keep the pressure on and make sure they stay above the yellow line. Bob, meanwhile, learns that not only have his team members continued their losing streak, they were the first and second out. Bob mocks their losing ways as the camera pans to their Subway wrappers and cups.
Last chance workout! Bob says he wanted Neil and Nicole to focus on and be there for one another. "Tunnel vision, laser vision" is his mantra du jour. Jillian has Bill do some incredibly painful looking dips. She interviews that her team was not chosen, and says with not a little bit of glee that they destroyed the Red Team, and there are only two Blue Team players left. Two weeks left, she says, and tells us to do the math. Bob has Neil and Nicole throw some medicine balls around. Nicole says that there's a lot of pressure, since it's her and Neil against the four Black Team members. Isabeau says she's playing for every woman who needs a female Biggest Loser as a role model. Does that mean she's going to share her prize money with us? Bob throws intense yet encouraging words at Neil and Nicole. Neil talks again about embracing the X on his back. I think those are just sweat marks. Bill, meanwhile, works on the rings like Bart Connor. Julie tells us that no one expects her to win, because she's lost less than everyone else. She feels like David to the others' Goliaths, and say that at this point it isn't about who's the most likeable, it's about who wants it the most. Well, that's good, because a lot of people don't seem to like Julie at all. I'm actually kind of fond of her, and don't see why she's so objectionable, but what can you do.
