In the voting room, things get underway quickly. Vinny is BFFs with Ramon, so of course votes for Sunny. Becky votes for Ramon. And then John votes for Sunny, ostensibly to show that he's not afraid of Ramon. So, he wasn't all that sorry for putting her in this position after all. If you'll recall, he also did once compare Sunny's brains to a box of hair. I don't think there was any deep relationship between these two. Antone judges John with his eyes, and then reveals that he voted for Ramon. With prompting from Sami, Antone chastises John for not playing a gentleman's game, and for being double-dog dirty with Sunny. John says that he did what's best for him by giving the one pound disadvantage to Sunny, and Antone argues that he could have made up for it in the voting room. Regardless, with tie votes Ramon has been eliminated, since he had the lowest percentage of weight lost.
Ramon tells us that he came down to the ranch alone, dying, unhealthy, and with Dr. H.-diagnosed diabetes. He was always lying to himself, but on The Biggest Loser, there is no more lying. He's done lots of crazy things in the ten weeks on the ranch, and also found great friends. He says his biggest accomplishment is beating diabetes, and of course the most exciting part has been meeting the love of his life, Jessica. The next time we see Ramon, he says that he's going to have the surprise of a lifetime for Jess. I fear the worst -- a proposal.
We catch up with Ramon in L.A., en route to see Jess. She looks totally great! And so does he. Part one of his surprise is a makeover including shorter hair, groomed facial hair, and decent clothes. Ramon went from 355 pounds when he started on the ranch to 245 today, for a total loss of 110 pounds. He and Jess train together, and we see them running on the beach and whatnot. Jessica apparently had a bucket list on the ranch, and Ramon tells her that he wants to take her on the ultimate date. She looks VERY NERVOUS. I think she has the same fears as me. But instead of a ring, Ramon takes her skydiving. They do it tandem to other people, of course, and it reminds me just how intimate skydiving is. They jump and fall, and then Ramon's parachute doesn't open! No, just kidding, he's fine. He'll live to propose to Jessica on the finale. How odious. Ramon plans to win the marathon and secure a spot in the final three!
