Sam is next, and Sunshine murmurs to O'Neal that his arms look finished already. He started at 372, weighed in at 246 last week, and is now at -- commercials! Okay, when we come back, now he's at 240, down six pounds. That's an overall total of 132 off since the start, with a weight loss percentage of 2.44% for this week. And if this were a full recap, I'd probably be sitting here with a calculator to confirm the figures, but since this is due ten hours after the show ends, and I plan to spend most of those hours sleeping, I'll take them at face value.
Next is Sunshine, who talks about how having to leave Dallas this week was tough. She started at 274, came in last week at 191, and is now at 187, a four-pound loss. "You feeling good about that?" Sami asks in a tone that suggests it's not really a yes or no question but more of a just-plain-no question. Sunshine is happy to have lost more than last week. She's lost a total of 88 pounds, and 2.09% for the week.
O'Neal, who started at 389 and came in at 270 last week, needs to have lost more than six pounds to be safe. Currently he's at 265, a five-pound loss. He tries to be philosophical about it, but he's disappointed at being in the bottom thus far, with a percentage loss of 1.85%. Sam's definitely safe. I mean, as safe as anyone can really feel standing that close to Jillian Michaels.
Michael's turn. He knows he won't survive a vote if he finds himself under the yellow line with either O'Neal or Sunshine. Having started out at 526 pounds, he was at 358 last week, and needs to have lost more than seven pounds to be safe. And he lost -- commercials again?
Bob takes a moment to warn us about airplane food, like we needed that tip.
When we come back, Michael's current weight turns out to be 343, for a whopping 15-pound loss. "There's your double digits, buddy," he tells Bob, who responds, "About time!" Michael marvels in an interview that he's lost 183 pounds. "A whole adult man! And I have a whole adult woman left to lose." I find myself wondering of that whole adult man and whole adult woman will get married someday. Sami tells him his total loss is 183 pounds, 17 pounds from the 200-pound total loss mark. And his percentage for the week is 4.19%, which puts him in the lead, followed by Sam, Sunshine, and O'Neal. Sunshine is starting to take it personally.
