After a commercial break, there is a Subway visit. Now with sandwiches for breakfast! Oh man, and then there are meetings with Dr. H. Mike was basically at death's door when Dr. H. first met with him, and had four chins. When Mike started the competition, his real age was 54. Now his real age is 38! Only seven years older than his actual age of 31. He's also gone from being at 15% risk for stroke to being at only a 1% risk.
Last chance workout! Final four, red line, blah blah blah. Beatings beatings beatings. Transformations. Happiness. Montages. Weird music by someone who sounds vaguely familiar. Pride. Commercials.
And then it's time for the weigh-in. The four players with the highest percentage of weight loss will be above the red line, and will be guaranteed a spot in the final four. The person who falls below the red line will be eliminated. And for the person who has the highest percentage of weight loss, Chef Curtis Stone will come to his or her home to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Ashley, who has the hots for Curtis Stone, is so thrilled that she has to fan herself.
Mike is up first on the scale. He goes from 334 to 322, for a loss of 12 pounds or 3.59%. He has a big smile, and says it's amazing. He's proud to have broken another Biggest Loser record by shedding more than 200 lbs. on the ranch. Then there's Koli. He needs to have lost 8 pounds to beat Michael. He goes from 244 to 231, for a loss of 13 pounds. I guess he wasn't kidding with all that smack talk. Koli only wishes Sam could be there. Koli has lost 172 pounds since coming on the show. At 5.33%, Koli is guaranteed a spot in the final four.
Daris is up next. He worked hard all week, but has gotten so skinny that a big number is going to be tough. Daris needs to have lost more than 6 pounds to make it to the final four. He goes from 205 to 195 for a loss of 10. Yay! Good for him. Daris says he wanted to make himself proud, but also serve as a good example and make other people proud. He did exactly what he set out to do -- lose 150 pounds -- which means as much as getting under 200 pounds. Daris also has a one-pound advantage, so his total percentage lost is 5.37%. He doesn't seem bitter about losing out on the $10,000 needlessly.
Ashley is next, and wonders if she can keep up with the boys, who have pulled these huge numbers. She needs to have lost more than 8 pounds to best Michael. Ashley goes from 238 to 231, for a loss of 7. Ooh, that hurts. Michael, to his credit, does not gloat. Could be that Koli was right at the top of the episode, though. Ashley is proud of her weight loss -- 143 pounds since coming on campus -- which is the record for the most weight lost by a woman on campus. Her total percentage lost is 2.94%. This means that Michael is definitely in the final four.
