Back at the campus, Neil has to break the news to Bob. Bob can't believe it, and apologizes. Neil says he knows they did everything they could, and he feels okay about that. He interviews that Bob has changed his life, and he wants Bob to know that before he leaves. Bob says that Neil deserves to be in the finals, and notes that he was weighing in for his whole team. It kills Bob that Neil felt like he was letting his team down. He tells Neil that he's walking out of the house a winner, and that his family is going to be so proud of him. He gets his extra-special supportive gay voice on, and gives Neil a big bear hug. Neil interviews that Bob has given him his life back. I am sad for Bob above all else, I must admit.
And then, it's elimination time! Bill votes first, and says that he had to cast his ballot for the person who could come back and keep him from winning the game. With the utmost respect, and, secretly, a healthy helping of glee, he votes for Neil. Isabeau notes that she's learned you always forgive, but rarely forget. She can't forget the times that people stood up for her, when she was possibly a bigger threat than they were. Her vote is all of theirs, and especially Jez's. HA! Way to stick it to him, Isabeau. She can share Jillian with me every other weekend, I guess. Isabeau votes for Neil, and that's enough to boot him but good.
Neil says that every dog has its day, and this has been an incredible run for him. Not a single person at home has ever known him at less than 400 pounds, so he has a lot of smiling faces waiting for him. There's one special girl in particular, and he's ready to start the next chapter of his life with her. Is that chapter going to be called, "The Time I Proposed to My Special Girl on TV"? Because if so, I'll wait and borrow that book from the library. Neil wishes the others luck, and is generally pretty gracious about his elimination. He grabs a sundae from Hollie's fridge and jokingly puts it in front of Bill with instructions to buck up, then leaves. Sami congratulates Hollie, and notes that this is the first time ever that one team is represented in the final four. They have to face the scale one more time at the grand finale, where one of them will win $250,000. And it all happens next week, right after Clash Of The Choirs! I'm afraid that if I watch that show, somehow Michael Bolton will make me cry.
We see Neil today, at 257 pounds. His teeny tiny girlfriend gives him a big hug. He's lost 165 pounds, and feels great. He can shop in normal stores, and doesn't have to take up two airplane seats when he flies. Before The Biggest Loser, he says, he was a twenty-five-year-old guy with a lot of health problems who was heading down a bad track. Now he's changed his life for the better, and is glad he'll be around for a long time to enjoy it. Oh, good for him.
