Next up is the Black Team. They need to have lost more than 32 pounds. Alexandra goes from 309 to 296 for a loss of 13, while Julio goes from 407 to 394 for a loss of 13. That's bad news bears. They've lost 26 pounds total, which at 3.63% puts them in danger of elimination. Alexandra is pissed and wonders if Julio didn't push himself hard enough. The Pink Team is safe. The last team to weigh in is the Purple Team, which for this week is just Mo. He has to have lost more than 12 pounds to keep himself and Tracey around for another week. Mo -- or "Coach Mo" as he is known on the scale display -- goes from 355 to 336. Way to pull it off, coach! That's 19 pounds or 5.35%, which means that he and Tracey are safe. It's also good enough to put him in second place for total percentage lost for the week.
This all, of course, means tragedy for the Black Team. One of them is going home. Julio is pissed at having come in so far below the others. He tells the others that he feels blessed to have Alexandra as his partner and that she's deserving of everything, but this also doesn't make him any less deserving. He talks about the two kids he has at home, and begs the others to allow him to continue on in the competition for the sake of himself and his family. Alexandra cries as she says that she's been overweight her whole life, and if she leaves campus it will be a continuous struggle. She worked her ass off this week, and would love to have another chance. It's clearly a tough decision for the others. Sean wants to go strictly by the numbers, but Allen reminds everyone that they're all more than numbers.
With that, we're in the elimination room. We get right to voting. Mo votes for Alexandra to go home. The Pink Team votes for Julio. The Red Team votes for Julio, too, saying that he would be able to go home and finish what he started. The Orange Team also votes to send Julio home. If he gets one more vote, he'll be eliminated. The Brown Team, who are parents themselves and clearly sympathize with Julio, votes for Alexandra. The Blue Team chooses Alexandra as well, saying that she can do it at home. This means that it all comes down to the Green Team. They vote for Alexandra, rationalizing that she has spark and fire and will be successful at home. This means that Alexandra has been eliminated. It's too bad, because she seems pretty bad-ass. She's gracious in her goodbye speech, if awfully sad. Everyone else looks very tired.
