It's time for the weigh-in. And then, weather alert! Roads closed, airport access, blah blah blah. Bad timing, Storm Team 10. I come back to the show with Sunshine voting. She votes for Stephanie. So far Stephanie has two votes and Sam has one. Drea also votes for Stephanie. So much for friendship! Ashley is next to vote. She cries, and says that she cares deeply about both Stephanie and Sam, but has changed a lot. She thought of herself first, and voted for Stephanie. Stephanie says that there are a lot more game players than she realized. She let her guard down and feels very hurt now, but she says it's not about that - it's about everyone's journey. With five votes, Stephanie has been eliminated. A tearful Ashley says that she betrayed a good friend who has encouraged and supported her through this whole thing. She prays that Stephanie understands.
Seven weeks later, we go shopping with Stephanie for her 30th birthday party! She used to be a size 20, and now she's a size 12. She tries on a bunch of cute dresses and winds up picking maybe the least flattering one. Well, she didn't have the benefit of the Tim Gunn makeover, I guess. She makes quite an entrance, though, and gets applause from all of her friends and family. She's lost 96 pounds so far, feels wonderful, and fell in love! With whom? Is this juicy, or is she talking about, like, falling in love with herself? Weird! Stephanie feels thankful, blessed, and happy, and it's all because of the Biggest Loser. She hopes to be wearing a new dress at the finale... this time a size eight.
And now there's a live weigh-in of a guy named Wayne, who used to weigh 674 pounds. Ergh... huh. What else to say about Wayne? He now weighs 256 pounds. He's lost 418 pounds. That's pretty amazing. He gets a trip to the Biggest Loser Resort at Fitness Ridge and a trip to the finale. And that's it. Did this guy win some sort of contest?
Next week: Melissa = evil. But you knew that.
