The Black Team will have to have lost more than 78 collective pounds to best the Red Team. Conda weighs in first, and goes from 245 to 231, for a loss of 14 pounds. She reached her 5%, and so has immunity. She sympathizes with Kim's plight, but is happy that she'll be on the ranch for another week. Emily is next, and goes from 216 to 199, for a loss of 17 pounds. She crushed her goal weight, and is also thrilled to be in the hundreds. Megan is next, and goes from 217 to 205, for a loss of 12 pounds. She also has immunity! Chris is next, and goes from 196 to 185, for a loss of 11 pounds. She's also hit her target, and is thrilled not to have to go back to that ramshackle house. Cassandra is next, and goes from 188 to 175 for a loss of 13 pounds. She's also met her target, and is ecstatic. That cookie didn't hurt after all! Finally, there's Chism. If he loses more than 11 pounds, the Black Team will win and the Red Team will have to face elimination. If he loses less than 12, the Black Team will lose and Chism will be the only player without immunity and will automatically go home. Chism goes from 293 to 282, for a loss of 11. Holy crow! Now that is a dramatic and unexpected ending.
Mark starts bawling, and basically everyone except for Kim looks really sad. Chism is disappointed in himself, and starts to cry. And then Mark cries more. He pleads for mercy for Chism, and volunteers to go home in Chism's stead. Mark is indeed in pretty good shape, and is firm in his conviction. This makes Chism feel VERY guilty, and he says that they have no control over the rules of the game. Mark gets dramatic and says that he's then going home WITH Chism. But Chism really bucks up and says that though it's harder, he's going to keep going and lose weight at home. He feels better now than he ever has, and wants to continue on that path. Dolvett congratulates Chism on being a man. Bob says that Chism is like the son he never had, and the whole room believes in him. Chism needs to take all that love and support and remember it every day, while still being an all-around stand-up guy. Sami reminds Chism that he still has a shot at the at-home prize before sorrowfully telling him that he's not the Biggest Loser. Everyone is super sad as they bid Chism adieu.
Chism tells us that he's leaving the ranch loving who he is today. He believes in himself for the first time in his life. We catch up with Chism at home, where he tells us that we can follow his blog on The Biggest Loser web site. Well, that seems like too much work for me. Sorry, kid! Good luck, though.
