Jeremy is next, and needs to have lost more than 5 pounds to stay safe. He goes from 266 to 260, for a loss of 6 pounds or 2.26%. Next up is Chris, who needs to have lost more than 3 pounds to stay above the yellow line. She goes from 174 to 170, for a loss of 4 pounds or 2.3%. Oh, curses, she's safe. We have to revisit the whole Antone thing, and Chris's mental health, and the season becomes ever more endless. Finally, Megan weighs in. As we know, she's worked very hard this week, and is stressed out by the accountability of the scale. She'll need to have lost more than 4 pounds to stay safe. Megan goes from 195 to 191, for a loss of 4 pounds or 2.05%. This means she's below the yellow line with Mark. Megan cries, and doesn't understand why her number wasn't better. Bob worries that this will feed Megan's low self-confidence, and tells her to fight for a healthy mindset.
At elimination, Jeremy votes for Megan, saying that she found her strength too late. Conda cries and cries and also votes for Megan. Chris votes for Megan, too, and that means she's been eliminated. Megan says that she feels like she'll be okay at home, and might actually do better away from all the pressure. She's come very far while on the ranch, and has a lot more confidence than she did when she started. She's also capable of a lot more than she gave herself credit for. Megan is proud of herself, and knows that she's got a long way to go, but thinks she's much more equipped to be successful now. The next time we see Megan, she'll be back in the saddle, losing weight and looking weigh.
We catch up with Megan at home. When she started on the ranch, she weighed 259 pounds. Now she weighs 189 pounds, which is a loss of 70. So, she's lost two pounds since she's been home. That can't be great. We watch as Megan races her horse for the first time in years. She also heads to Planet Fitness with her now-fiancé Michael. Michael lost 80 pounds during the time that Megan was on the ranch, and she's excited about their healthy future together. And then wedding dress shopping happens! Megan used to be a size 20, but now can fit into a size 12. Unfortunate tan lines aside, she looks great. Megan plans to get married in September 2013. She has asked Conda to be a bridesmaid. Why on earth would you do such a thing? Maybe she's planning to serve cabbage soup for dessert?
Next week: Makeovers! A trip to the White House! You would NOT get this with President Santorum.
