The Blue Team members head one by one into the voting booth. They're all torn up about it, especially since they've had so much time to bond as a whole team. Jeff has decided to vote based on who he thinks can succeed at home, which is apparently David. But he shame eats breakfast nuggets! David has taken the tactic of getting rid of the strongest competitor, who is Jeff. Gina also votes for David, as does Michael. They all act like it's some sort of tribute, but of course they're just sick of him being paranoid that they'll vote him off because of his bum knee. David has been eliminated, and says that he's happy to have a positive direction to go in once he gets home. There's a round of hugs, and David tells us that it's going to be tough to leave the ranch. He of course has all of his repressed feelings, but has discovered how strong he really is and is thrilled about how much work he put in, and how much weight he lost. David promises to open up his soul and get rid of all the bad, and tells us that the next time we see him neither his head, his knee nor his weight will keep him from keeping the streets of Oklahoma a little bit safer.
We catch up with David today. He started the show at 307 pounds, and now is down to 220. That's a total loss of 87 pounds! He looks really great, even in his crazy Oklahoma green police uniform. David shares Bob's workouts with some of his colleagues, and we learn that he's an inspiration to a lot of guys in the police department. And then we see David with his daughter, Tiffany, who has Rett Syndrome. With his increased health and strength, it's much easier for him to lift and take care of her. The Biggest Loser has taught David to appreciate life, and he tells us that he's seized that opportunity. He can't wait to be under 200 pounds by the finale.
Next week: Well, I'm not exactly sure, since my DVR cut off the preview. But I'm assuming beatings and tears and stuff. [Note: And no more teams!]
