Michael is up next. His hair is slicked back into a little afro-pouf for variety. He needs to have lost more than 8 pounds to be safe. Michael goes from 372 to 363 for a loss of 9 pounds. He's feeling great about himself, and the changes he's made. Michael has lost a total of 163 pounds, which is pretty phenomenal. This week he lost 2.42%, and is definitely safe. Ashley is next on the scale. She needs to have lost more than 5 pounds to stay safe. She goes from 264 to 258 for a loss of 6 pounds. That'll do it! Sunshine looks more and more distraught with each passing contestant. Ashley has lost 2.27%, and is safe.
Next is Victoria, of the sprints and the emotional quasi-breakthroughs. She must lose more than 5 pounds to stay above the yellow line. Victoria goes from 272 to 267, for a loss of 5. That's not enough to keep her safe, which makes me sad. She tells us that if she falls below the yellow line, she's gone. Victoria has lost 1.84%. This means that Koli is safe. O'Neal is up next, and is all torn up about Sunshine's sadness. He hopes he's lost less weight than her, to take her place below the yellow line. O'Neal needs to have lost more than 5 pounds to guarantee safety. He goes from 283 to 278 for a loss of 5. Now they might both be under the yellow line, which was not in the plan. O'Neal has lost 1.77%, which puts him just above Sunshine and means that Victoria is safe. Sunshine is bawling.
Drea is next. She says she's worked as hard as everyone else, and seeing them with low numbers scares her. To stay safe, Drea needs to have lost more than 3 pounds. She goes from 225 to 22, for a loss of 3 pounds. She's upset, and says she worked way harder than three pounds. Drea worked her ass off, and is pissed. At least now she can hug someone, since she got over that touching issue. At 1.33%, Drea is definitely below the yellow line. O'Neal is safe. Finally, there's Sam. To stay safe, he needs to have lost more than 3 pounds. Sam goes from 252 to 252, for a loss of 0. Ouch. But Sam remains proud of his accomplishments. He assures us that he worked damn hard this week, and the zero does not define his journey on The Biggest Loser. He joins Drea under the yellow line, and Sunshine is safe.
Michael assures us that it's going to be difficult to decide who should be voted out. Sam deserves to be on campus because he puts in so much effort, and Drea needs to be there because she has far to go on her journey. Drea tells the others that she really picked it up this week. She doesn't want to leave, and doesn't think she's done. This has been a big week for her mentally -- she's starting to figure things out. She can't say anything negative about Sam, because he's awesome. However, she emphasizes that she doesn't want to go. Sam says that he's up there again having to explain himself. He says that his work ethic is strong, and every part of him wants to be there. He's not ready to cash it in at all.
