Sophia is next to weigh-in. Her montage involves the trainers teaching her a lesson. Jillian yelled at her a lot, and threatened to ruin her life if she continued to roll her eyes. Sophia looked much less punky on the ranch, and had a habit of wearing a ribbon in her hair. Sophia started at 272 pounds. She needs to lose more than 123 pounds to beat Adam. That did not happen, nohows. Sophia now weighs 207, for a loss of 55 pounds. That's 23.90%. I think it's a testament to how hard this season sucked that so many contestants are putting up relatively low numbers. Bad casting, I guess, especially in terms of the ladies. Then there's Lisa. Her montage involves the tragic daughter story, and the phrase "pay it forward." Contain your surprise. Lisa started at 288 pounds. In order to take the lead, she'll need to have lost more than 130 pounds. Lisa's current weight is 191, or 97 pounds. That's 33.68%, and still no one has been able to touch Adam.
And then, more contestants! There's Anna, who joined campus mid-season and is hot to trot in an asymmetrical mini-dress. Then there's Jesse! Aww. His ensemble is a tribute to Pee Wee Herman, which I find fitting and very "now." And then there's Burgandy, looking like an aging drag queen. I totally forgot about her. Sami is thrilled to see these folks showing off how great they look. The fact that she's so sincere about it is what makes her a really endearing host. She asks Jesse what happened after he was so hurt by Patrick's vote for his elimination. Jesse says that they're all cool, and everybody makes mistakes. Going home was good for him, he says, and Bob was right when he said this was about Jesse's life and not the game. Jesse is excited about his future and what's ahead. Burgandy has five kids at home, and still manages to portray a remarkable likeness to Patrick Swayze in To Wong Foo. You say, "I'm worth it!" and get up in the morning and put on that wig, girl. Everybody say love!
