With that, it's weigh-in time. John has to announce who will get the one pound disadvantage, and admits that he made his decision based on what would improve his own position. You can't exactly blame him for that, and yet he makes it all so unpleasant. John gives the disadvantage to Sunny, and everyone in turn thinks that he is a giant skeeze. John is first on the scale, and goes from 310 to 305 pounds, for a loss of 5 pounds. Dolvett heads out early to get a good place in the unemployment line. John says that he's had a great run, and Sami has to remind him that the weigh-in isn't over yet. Dolvett claims that a different man is standing on the scale, given that John says that he appreciates his loss, but Bob isn't so sure. He says he can see that John is pissed. It doesn't take much for John to admit that this is the case, and then yell that he wanted 11 pounds but didn't get it. He also thinks that Bob's thigh skin would make an excellent collar. With his one pound advantage, John's percentage of weight lost is 1.94%.
Antone is next, with his $500 per pound prize. He goes from 339 to 331 for a loss of 8 pounds or 2.36%. He also wanted 11, but still is excited about the cash and all the Christmas presents it will buy. Vinny and his three pound advantage are next. He goes from 335 pounds to 324, for a loss of 11 pounds. This not only means that he is wildly safe, but he has lost over 100 pounds! Everyone is thrilled for him. Vinny's total percentage of weight lost is 4.18%. Becky is next, and goes from 182 pounds to 177, for a loss of 5 pounds or 2.75%. That's pretty great, considering how small she is. Next is Ramon, who goes from 273 pounds to 268, for a loss of 5 pounds. That's 1.83%, and he's definitely below the yellow line.
Sunny is last to weigh in. She of course has the controversial one pound disadvantage, and it will be either her or John below the yellow line. She goes from 207 to 202, for a loss of 5 pounds. Without the one pound disadvantage, she would have been safe. As it is, however, she falls below the yellow line by one one-hundredth of a point, and John is safe. Sunny says that it doesn't seem right to take away something that she's earned. At least you still have your skin, lady. It could be worse. Also, Dolvett will live to see another week! Huzzah!
Ramon and Sunny plead their cases before the other contestants. Ramon says that he didn't pull the number that he needed to, but wants to be there more than anything. He was hiding behind a wild and jokey persona when he came to the house, but was hiding the fact that he was unhappy and lonely and had failed in many things. On the ranch, he learned lots of stuff about himself, and found good friends and a lady. He wants to stay and finish his journey. Sunny tells the others that she did what she needed to do to stay safe this week, and that being on the show has been an answer to her prayers. The other contestants have been like family, except probably for John. She really wants to stay, too. John cries and apologizes, but Antone wonders if his vote will actually reflect genuine regret. Hint: it won't.
