Back at the house, Drea wants to talk to the housemates without Melissa there. Once Melissa is out, Drea says that this has been a big week, because she realized that she deserves to be in the final four. She's finishing things that she's started, which is a first for her. It's important for her to figure out who she is and what she deserves, and she's just started that. She says she needs to be there another week. She doesn't say anything disparaging about Melissa, probably because she doesn't have to. Melissa comes into the room, and tells us that she's a lawyer. It's her job to give people the facts, and then try to convince them that her interpretation of the facts is the better one. She totally makes a closing argument, emphasizing that the others can guarantee their path to the final four by choosing to keep her over Drea. She says, "I'm basically your fairy godmother," because week by week she'll be in the bottom two, and the others can pick off whoever is against her. The contestants who stay above the yellow line will be in the final four. Well, that's true anyway. The others look kind of conflicted, but I think that it's just because they can't stand hearing her voice. Melissa says that this isn't about friendships, emotions, or relationships -- it's about getting to the final four and letting confetti rain down on you. She closes by saying that the only argument she has is that she can't beat them. Which, okay. Then why does she even want to stay there? Wouldn't she be better off going for the $100,000 prize at home?
Finally, it's elimination time. Koli votes first. He says that Melissa is a game player, in a house that isn't about playing games. He votes to eliminate Melissa. O'Neal says that at this point, each contestant needs to earn it on their own merits. Eventually, game playing is going to cause fussing and fighting, and who needs it? Drea still needs to be there. He votes for Melissa. Melissa pipes in to say that these are very poor choices. If it were her fighting to get to the final four, she'd be getting rid of her biggest threat. Daris says that the easy route isn't the route for him. He likes competitors who push him. He votes for Melissa. Michael is another voice opposed to gameplay, and also votes for Melissa. One more, and she's gone. Victoria is next. She says that she wants to keep the person who gave her a shot to come back. That would be Drea, and so she votes for Melissa with a note that simply says, "Beast@home!" Well put. Melissa tells the others that the struggle at home is ridiculous, and that they don't want to go home under any circumstances. She tears up as she says that she has Lance at home, along with her gym and her trainers, and it really is going to be okay this time. Sami is all, "Good riddance, whackadoo."
