Cameras hover outside the house as we hear Ron whispering, apparently to Mike, that if Mike and Tara vote to keep Helen, and he and Filipe vote to keep Kristin, Kristin still goes home. He adds, "She's your bigger threat." Mike goes, "Mm, hmm." Oh, that shit is dastardly. Ron tells Mike to make sure that Tara's on the same page as him. This bitch cannot be trusted. Mike asks Ron if this is okay with him, and with no hesitation or tinge of regret Ron says, "Yeah." I think he underestimated the power of the mic pack. I'm all for playing the game, but the two-facedness of that shit is just wrong.
Heading to eliminations, Kristin wonders if Mike is going to man up and take on the challenge for once in his life. Negative. The votes begin. Tara of course votes to send Kristin home. Filipe votes to oust Helen. Ron votes to send home Helen, because he is a devious bastard. Ew! And then he lays it on even thicker, saying that he promised Kristin's mother that he would watch over her and ensure that she made it to the end. So busted. Once Bob gets wind of this, he's going to freak. It all comes down to Mike. He tells Kristin that the two of them are the biggest threats in the house, and he made this decision for himself. He voted for Kristin. There's a tie, and Kristin goes home. Kristin says she's not surprised but sad for Mike, since he wants to take the easy road to victory. Sami notes that Ron's was the only surprised face of the bunch. This is because he took an acting class before coming on the show. Ron says that Mike did what's best for him, and Kristin gets a look like she knows it's bullshit. Sami then asks Ron if he knew what Mike was going to do, and Ron has the balls to say no. Seriously, this is what you get for not taking him out, like, 13 weeks ago. Kristin replies that nothing happens by mistake in this game. Ron was true to his word and did not write Kristin's name down, but she's not walking out of there by mistake or chance. She adds that, in his head, Mike thinks he's won this competition. Sami asks Mike if this is true. It is. Ron confidently says, "My son will win." He really IS like the godfather, combined with Papa Gino.
Kristin exit-interviews that she weighed 360 pounds when she came on campus, and now weighs 244 pounds. She's thrilled with her 116-pound loss, as you might expect. She says that she's going to miss Bob, and is who she is today because of him. Bob believed in her, and led her to this moment, which is the happiest moment of her life. She's going to walk in her house and re-start her life as a brand-new person. She may not have won The Biggest Loser, but she won her life back. And you can't argue with that. Next time we see her, she says, we'll have to pick our collective jaw up off the floor, because she's going to look unbelievable. We follow Kristin home, where her family is thrilled to see her and her new, svelte self. Nick, her husband, is psyched, and Cathy tells us how proud she is of Kristin's transformation. Kristin has inspired her family, and that feels good. Two months later, Kristin is already giving motivational speeches! She was really meant for this line of work. The Rotary Club has never been so thrilled. Kristin is ready to pay it forward and share what she's learned, with stripey hair providing the exclamation points for her. She's also gunning for that L'Oreal endorsement. Kristin has lost 132 pounds so far and is gunning to be under 200 pounds by the finale.
