Damien is up next, and is worried that his performance this week wasn't good enough to keep him and Nicole in the running. He needs to lose more than 8 pounds to stay safe. He goes from 355 to 351 for a loss of 4. He's upset and so is Bob, who wishes he could have been around all week to help Damien. Damien has lost 1.13%, and he and Joelle are both in danger of falling below the yellow line. Daniel is next to weigh in. To be safe he needs to have lost more than 8 pounds. He goes from 421 to 406, for a loss of 15! Crazy! That's 3.56%. He's so pumped, and says he sweated out every single one of those pounds. This is enough to push Damien below the yellow line. Finally, we have Kristin. She needs to have lost more than 6 pounds. Everyone is rooting for Kristin so Joelle will fall below the yellow line and they can kick her ass out. Kristin goes from 331 to 324, for a loss of 7! She did it! Joelle has the fear of God and Carla in her eyes. She knows things aren't looking good. Bob understands the relationships in the house, and fears that if Joelle goes home, Carla's going to kill somebody. And people use the phrase "so-and-so is going to kill somebody" often, but rest assured that Bob is speaking literally.
As the players sit and think about their decisions, Damien says that he leaves things in their hands. Tara asks Joelle point-blank if she wants to be in the house, and she hesitates. Is she suicidal?!?!? She seems pretty convinced that she's going to be the one to go. The voting contestants talk, and Bob's Team says that they're going to send Joelle home. Blaine says, on behalf of Jillian's team, that he respects their decision and seems primed to go along with it. Kristin tells us that she'll be shocked if this vote doesn't end with Joelle bouncing to her death.
The votes begin. Filipe votes for Joelle. The Brown Team votes for Joelle. Kristin votes for Joelle. Helen votes for Joelle. And then! The Black Team says they tried to make their decision for the right reasons, and considered both Nicole and Carla. And they voted to oust Damien! Girl, they are afraid of Carla, too. Joelle looks more shocked than anyone. Tara also votes for Damian, saying that Joelle deserves a chance to get her life back. Mandi also boots Damien. This is total game-playing, right? Dan is left to vote. If he votes for Damien there will be a tie and Damien, having the lowest percentage of weight lost, will go home. Dan says that he based his decision on strength and inspiration, and not who does or does not "deserve" to be there. And so he votes to boot Damien! The hell? Joelle actually seems upset that she's staying, and starts to cry. Damien says that he's the one who should be crying. But he doesn't, because he's awesome.
