Next we have Isabeau, whose weight kept her from getting a record deal. I've listened to the songs on Isabeau's MySpace page, and am not so sure about that. She bursts through her life sized picture looking ever more like Portia de Rossi. But...bigger. She's not going to win. Sami notes that Isabeau found another passion in addition to music. Isabeau says she felt it was her duty to pay it forward, and has become a personal trainer. She kicks the butts of her clients just like Jillian taught her to. Heartwarming!
And then, there's Maude. I mean Bill. He's, like, Seacrest-sized now. I could fit him in that little tiny fifth pocket on my jeans. He is totally going to win, and happily looks less terminally ill than Jim. Bill says that he's representing the old-timers, and he and Jim, facing health problems and the death of a similarly unhealthy friend, felt that going on the show was something they had to do. That old compromisin', enterprisin', anything but tranquilizing, right-on Bill!
Before the final weigh in, Sami pulls out a pair of Bill's old pants, which are huge. They're a size 54. Bill is now a 32 waist. Holy crow. Sami says that both Bill and Jim could fit into them now, and we get to admire the twinniness. We look back at Bill and Jim, and the audience laughs as they body slam each other fatly. They do their little twin dance, and Jim is sent back to the realm of the fourteen. Sami asks Bill which of the competition scares him most. He says that he and Julie were paired up the whole time, but he's nervous about all three of them. Hollie gets emotional and says she's really happy that the four of them are standing there. They are all so hungry and thirsty right now. Julie looks like she hasn't slept in a fortnight.
Since Bill was the final four's biggest loser on campus, he gets to decide the order of how everyone will weigh in. He says that he and Julie have been representing the old-timers for a while, and Sami says to Julie that Bill just threw her under the bus. But now the bus would hardly feel a bump! Anyhoo, Bill wants to go in order of age -- starting with Isabeau, then Hollie, Julie, and himself last. Is Bill secretly a producer of this show? We get yet another Isabeau retrospective. Blah blah let's get to the scale! I can't take this suspense! Isabeau started at a hefty 298 pounds. Today her weight is 185. She lost 113 pounds. If I've said it once, I've said it 15 times: Holy crow. That's a 37.92% loss. Jillian gives her a big round of applause.
We get the longest preview ever for couples season, which is going to make me cry every week, and then it's Hollie's turn. She had a mental transformation as well as a physical one -- she's a lot happier with herself than she was when she started. Speaking of, she started at 255. She has to lose more than 96 pounds to best Isabeau. Her current weight is...150, for a loss of 105. Wow! Jillian gives her big, fierce, slow clap. That's 41.18%, which puts Hollie on top for now.
