The Blue Team is up next. They need to have lost more than 40 pounds to go above the yellow line. Filipe goes from 364 to 347 for a loss of 17, while Sione goes from 372 to 349 for a loss of 23. Hot damn! Of course this equals 40 pounds, which means they just missed the mark. It always comes down to a pound. They lost 5.43%, which is the same as Dan and David. Next up is the Yellow Team. They need to have lost more than 28 pounds to displace the White Team from atop the yellow line. Mandi goes from 263 to 251, for a loss of 12, while Aubrey goes from 249 to 236, for a loss of 13. That's 25 pounds, also known as not enough. Tears. They've lost 4.88%, which actually puts them toward the bottom of the current pack.
The Purple Team is next. They need to lose more than 36 pounds to go above the yellow line. Kristin goes from 360 to 341, for a loss of 19, while Cathy goes from 293 to 281, for a loss of 12. That's 31 pounds, or 4.75%. It's still not enough to take the lead from the White Team. This weigh-in is so bittersweet for the contestants, like the chocolate they are no longer allowed to eat. The Pink Team is next. They need to lose more than 30 pounds to go above the yellow line. Helen goes from 257 to 245, for a loss of 12. Shannon goes from 283 to 270, for a loss of 13. That's 25 pounds total, or 4.63%. One of them is going to have to go home, and they are pretty upset about it. Then there's the Green Team. To go above the yellow line they need to lose more than 32 pounds. Laura goes from 285 to 272, for a loss of 13, while Tara goes from 294 to 273, for a loss of 21. Holy crow! They did it! I give Tara all the credit. She secretly gives herself all the credit, too. Jillian looks a little sad that she might have to put up with Laura for another week. They lost 34 pounds, or 5.87%, and are above the yellow line with one team left to weigh in. Jerry and Estella look sad.
The final team to weigh in is the Brown Team. I'm guessing they at least come close if they're weighing in last. They will have to lose more than 48 pounds to take victory from the jaws of Tara and Laura. That is a pretty tall order. Mike goes form 388 to 366, for a loss of 22, while Ron, who I am sad to report has an actual six-pack of man boobs, goes from 430 to 398, for a loss of 32! Holy crow part deux! That is 54 pounds, bitches, and Laura is going hooooome! Good deal. Ron says that all the weight of the world (if the world weighed 32 pounds) has been lifted from his shoulders. He's quite joyful to get to spend another week with his son. To add a non-fat cherry on top, Sami tells Ron that 32 pounds is the most anyone has ever lost in a single week on campus. It's good times for Brown! The Brown team lost 6.6%, and are definitively safe. The Black Team, of course, have immunity. But the other nine teams must choose one team member who will go home tonight.
