Up comes Daris, who isn't feeling confident. He started at 346, was 219 last week, and needs to have lost more than four pounds to be safe. And he comes in at 214, so he's good with a total loss of 132 pounds and a weekly percentage of 2.28%. This show doesn't just teach about diet and exercise, it's got a shitload of math in it. Daris says he was in seventh grade last time he weighed that little, but he's safe no matter what, and now O'Neal is alone below the yellow line, with Sunshine just above it. If Ashley comes through, they'll be split up no matter what. Sunshine is already crying. She should have done that before getting weighed so the tears wouldn't count against her.
Ashley shucks her coat and steps up to the scale, knowing she's going home if she goes below the yellow line. She started at 374, was 254 last week, and needs to have lost more than five pounds to guarantee her safety. And of course there's another ad before we find out. But when we do, she's at 248, for a loss of six pounds. Realizing she's safe, Ashley goes from relieved to heartbroken before our very eyes as she realizes what this means for Sunshine and O'Neal. She goes back to the group for her hugs from Bob and Jillian while Sunshine breaks down. Sami says, "Ashley, I know this is a bittersweet moment, but in fifteen weeks, you have lost a total of 126 pounds." Her percentage of weight loss this week is 2.36%, so the final rankings are Michael, Sam, Ashley, Daris, Sunshine, and O'Neal, with father and daughter together below the yellow line. Sami tells Jillian and Bob to say their goodbyes, and there are long, teary hugs before Sami tells Sunshine and O'Neal that one of them will be eliminated tonight. She gives them all an hour to talk about it, which they won't need.
Sunshine emotionally says she doesn't want to see her dad go, and O'Neal says he wants Sunshine to stay. He doesn't even want one pity vote for himself. He promises to go home and pursue this with the same intensity he had the first four weeks at home.
When Sami returns, Ashley talks at length about how much she admires the person she's voting for before revealing that that it's O'Neal. Sam is similarly respectful, but much less suspenseful, before revealing his vote for "Unc. O'Neal." Koli also addresses O'Neal directly, saying he hopes to be a father like him one day, and he was their inspiration, and that's why he voted for him. That's three votes, and O'Neal is not The Biggest Loser. He and Sunshine try to keep their shit together as they say their goodbyes. He thanks the others for respecting his wishes and for their kind words, paying back compliments all the way down the bar. Daris assures O'Neal that Sunshine isn't alone: "Just because her biological family isn't here doesn't mean she doesn't have family here." Sami finally tells O'Neal, "Look forward to seeing you again, O'Neal," which is a polite but unmistakable dismissal, and with a final hug, he's gone.
