Brady and Vicky are the last team to step up on the scale. She says that they were devastated that their best friends in the house, Ed and Heba, were on the block, too. Sami tells the Brown Team that they have to lose more than 7 pounds to be safe. Vicky goes from 220 to 217, for a loss of 3, while Brady goes from 301 to 292, for a loss of 9. That's 12 pounds total, and it means that they're safe. For once, they don't gloat either. They're genuinely sad that one of the Orange Team members has to go home. Brady and Vicky have lost 2.3% total, which puts them in first place for this week.
Heba and Ed have an hour to determine who will go home. They are pretty sad about it, obviously. They go back to their room to discuss it, and Ed tells Heba that the decision is in her hands, pretty much because he didn't lose any weight. Heba wonders if Ed will really put the work in and lose the weight at home. Strategically she also wonders if Ed will put up a big number next week, and if she would put up a small number because she lost so much this week. Ed says that Heba might need to be there so that she can get skinny enough to have a baby. That decision, he says, would be for their future as a couple. Oh, please send her home. Otherwise we're going to have to watch her blubber until such time as she gets the boot.
It's decision time. Heba tells Sami that they're not there to play a game. They're deciding to send Ed home, presumably because they want babies. Ed tells Heba that she's the beginning and the end, and he never truly loved before he met her. She's the most determined damned woman he's ever met, and will push forth even through the most crappy of situations. They love each other, which is nice, but now they'll have to love each other from afar. Sami tells Ed that he is not the Biggest Loser, and has to get the hell out. Heba weeps hysterically. Sami looks like she just smelled something foul.
Ed tells us in his exit interview that his biggest accomplishment so far is realizing and acknowledging that he has an addiction to food. It's always going to be with him. But he has realized that nothing can stop him. He thanks Bob, who was one of the catalysts who started his reawakening. Ed is very proud of Heba, and is confident that she'll carry on and continue to lose weight. Next time we see Ed, he says, he'll be about 180 pounds and look even better than he does now. We jump to Ed at home, who is looking damn good! He has some facial hair, and looks much skinnier. And I totally forgot he's a chef! He tells us that he now writes down all his nibbles on the job in his food journal. He looks so much younger, and I covet his dog. Ed has lost 85 pounds so far. Yay!
