Helen is next, and must lose more than 4 pounds to stay safe. She goes from 182 to 177 for a loss of 5 pounds or 2.75%. She's psyched and dedicates her victory to all the haters. Aubrey and Mike are still in danger. Sione is next, and needs to lose one more pound to hit 100 total lost, and six pounds to stay safe. He goes from 273 to 266 for a loss of 7 or 2.56%. He's safe, and has now lost 106 pounds since coming to campus. Ron is next. He needs to have lost more than 7 pounds to stay safe. It's a difficult situation for him, as he doesn't want to push Mike below the yellow line. He actually hopes that he loses less than 6 so Mike is safe. He goes from 327 to 317 for a loss of 10 pounds or 3.06%. Great time to finally lose some weight, six-pack. Ron knows he should be happy, but he's not. Mike is depressed that his own lack of weight loss has harshed what should be his dad's 10-pound buzz. Finally, Filipe weighs in. He needs to lose 3 pounds to hit the 100 pound milestone, and 5 pounds to stay above the yellow line. He goes from 267 to 263 for a loss of 4. This means that he's in danger of going home along with Aubrey. Mike is safe, which is happy times all around.
Aubrey thinks that, with Filipe below the yellow line, she might stand a chance. She tells the others that she's not ready to go yet. Filipe asks the other contestants to vote with their hearts. He thinks he has good enough relationships with everyone else in the house that he feels confident, but he's trying to stay humble. They leave, and the others discuss. Tara and Helen are up in the air. Sione says that Filipe needs to be there, and if he goes home it's going to be hard for him. Kristin says that Aubrey's going to have a hard time staying above the yellow line, which might be good reason to keep her around. On the other hand, Filipe is a tough competitor but a good friend. Everyone agrees that it's a hard decision.
It's elimination time! Tara votes for Filipe to be eliminated. Mike votes for Aubrey. Laura votes for Filipe. Helen votes for Aubrey. Kristin votes for Aubrey. Ron also votes for Aubrey, and so we don't need to see Sione's vote. The problem with this season is that people have no strategery. Sigh. Aubrey has been eliminated. She tells us that she weighed 249 pounds when she came to campus, and now she weighs 191 pounds. She realizes how unhappy she was when she arrived at the ranch. She was going through the motions of life but not living. But now she knows what it's like to have energy and be happy and mean it when she smiles. She tells us that next time we see her she'll weigh 125 pounds and take the at-home prize. Aubrey arrives home the next day and is quite excited to see her family. Her giant dad is amazed at how great she looks. Wasn't she just home last week running that half-marathon? Aubrey's husband says she's beautiful and he's proud to be married to her. Mandi tells us that Aubrey looks amazing. Aubrey's daughter cries because she missed her so much! Oh! Aubrey is ready to get to work and lose the rest of the weight that she needs to lose. Her dad has lost 26 pounds since she was last home, and Aubrey hopes that she and Mandi have motivated him to continue. [Did he really lose 26 pounds in a week? Time is so confusing on this show. -- AC]
