Only three people stand between Joe and his Super Bowl tickets, and they're all wearing blue shirts. The oldsters need to have lost more than 22 pounds to not have their team completely decimated. Bonnie is up first, and goes from 247 to 240, for a loss of 7 pounds or 2.83 percent. She's very excited about this, and addresses all of us at home. She's 63 years old and the weight has been coming off slowly, but in week three Bonnie got her groove back. She implores us to get off of the couch no matter how old we are, and makes Anna cry. Next is Becky, who goes from 223 to 214, for a loss of 9 pounds or 4.04 percent. She, too, is thrilled, and the Red Team is starting to look nervous. Finally, there's Mike. He needs to have lost more than 6 pounds to ensure his team's safety. Mike goes from 290 to 273, for a whopping 17 pound loss! Becky and Bonnie and Anna can't even contain themselves, while Mike remains calm but proud. He, too, addresses all of us at home to remind us that age is nothing but a number. Anna says that her team has come through so many obstacles, but they all stayed strong. She calls Mike the perfect student, and thanks him for giving a million percent. But now the real question! Will Mike get the Super Bowl tickets? His total percentage lost is 5.86 percent He did it! This all makes me very happy. The Blue Team ha lost 33 pounds total, or 4.34 percent. They basically crushed the Red Team.
Speaking of the Red Team, they're quite distraught at their current predicament. Sami tells them that, with the highest percentage lost on the team, Jessica is safe from elimination. They have a group discussion, in which there are tears galore. Ramon says that he can't do this on his own yet, and is one of the sickest people there. Vinny doesn't want to go, either. Jessica says that it's going to come down to Patrick and Courtney, given the fact that Ramon and Vinny really do seem to need to be there the most. Courtney says that she might have a real age of 50, but she's scared of going home. She has a lot to figure out about herself, and is scared that going home will prevent that. Vinny tells us that his heart goes out to Courtney, because she has no self-confidence. Patrick says that he wants to be there really badly, but wants the others to write his name down. Then everyone starts crying more. Patrick says that he wants to lay his life down for the team, because he knows the physical and emotional issues that are plaguing the others. Isn't he, like, one of the spotlighted head cases? The whole thing is very, very overwrought and ends in a group hug.
