Then it's time for some more at-home contestants! First there's Brendan, looking like one of the lesser-known Backstreet Boys in a coordinated hat and vest. He flexes his guns and looks douchey, per usual. Sophia is up next. I don't remember her at all, either, but she's rocking a faux hawk. And then holy smokes! It's Lisa, in a really flattering short bob. She looks great. Sami first asks her what her kids said to her when she got home. Lisa says that they were in complete shock, because they've never seen her this thin. She loves it. Sami asks if she feels that she's a role model to her daughter, who had that whole tragic thing that I'd rather not explain again, and Lisa says that she feels like now she's the best role model for her daughter instead of the worst. And then it's time to talk to Brendan. Sami asks what it was like for him to go home after his intense strategizing throughout the season. And whoa, what the heck is up with his chin hair? He has something of a reverse landing strip. Huh. Brendan says that he went on The Biggest Loser to regain his life, and while there he did some things that he maybe regrets and maybe doesn't regret. Ooooo...kay. Ultimately, he became the person he wants to be and a role model for his students, or at least those students who really want to be the best d-bags they can be. Brendan gives a shout-out to his parents, and then Sami dismisses this batch of contestants to prepare for their weigh-in.
It's then time to meet another of next season's contestants. I know this is a shocker, but she has a tragic story. Her name is Sarah, and she hasn't been able to successfully carry a baby because of her weight. She and some lady who is maybe her mom and maybe her sister (but in any case is a grown-ass woman) wear matching shirts, which bodes poorly for their likeability.
Brendan is first to weigh-in for this batch of three. His montage involves Bob making him cry, which is certainly one of his more likable moments. He tears up a little on the scale and tells Bob that he loves him. Then he tells Adam that he looks unbelievable. Even the straight dudes want to get with Adam! Brendan started at 362 pounds. He'll need to lose more than 163 pounds to beat Adam. Brendan's current weight is 245, which is a loss of 117 pounds. That's 32.32%. Not enough to beat Adam, and actually not that much more than Elizabeth lost. And, okay, I just went back to the recap where Brendan was eliminated, and when we caught up with him at home then he weighed 237 pounds. This does not bode well. Maybe he and Elizabeth can get back on track by forming a Boston support group and eating that Jennie-O turkey bacon breakfast pizza to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I'm sure the weight will just melt off if he has three of those pizzas a week.
