With 50 trays chosen, the contestants are looking pretty sick. Sione has eaten 2105 calories, while Tara beats everyone once again with 2830 calories consumed. Meanwhile, Kristin thinks she's all smart because she's not picking trays anymore. But she did pick a few and ate plenty of calories already, so, whatever. She says she'd rather focus on not dropping below the yellow line and being at risk to go home than being the person who can choose who goes home. Tara gets another cupcake, and her new total is 3962 calories. Only a few trays remain, and what luck for the producers that the golden ticket tray would be one of the last ones picked. Helen says she got "carried away," while Filipe wins $500. And gum! And then, finally, the Golden Ticket is revealed. Who's the lucky winner? Laura! She's thrilled, and Helen celebrates with her as if her ass won't be going home if she falls below the yellow line with Laura or Tara. Tara, of course, is also ecstatic, but she'd better hope that she and Laura don't both fall below that line. Oh, but wait! Sami reveals that Laura will not be able to use her ticket if she falls below the yellow line herself. Kristin can barely hold her jealousy inside as she interviews that Laura might find that her prize is a curse, as power "can mess you up." In an interview, Laura cackles that she can vote out whoever she wants. Except not really, since she can only choose between two people who fall below the line and only if she doesn't fall herself.
Tara and Laura continue to celebrate back in their bedroom. Tara wonders if people will act differently towards Laura this week. Laura starts to strategize that Tara should fall below the yellow line on purpose this week, as if the 10,000 calories she just ate won't be enough to do that for her. Tara doesn't want to throw the weigh-in, especially since if Laura falls below, too, she's screwed. Laura only wants Tara to throw the weigh-in because it'll make her choice easy and also give her a better chance of not falling below the line herself. And if she does fall below the line with Tara, she probably also knows that Tara will be the one going home. So this works out very well for Laura. Tara thinks that throwing the weigh-in will defeat the purpose of being on this show in the first place. But so does eating all those cupcakes, so, whatever.
