Meanwhile, milk is the answer. Nine essential nutrients! Jillian tries to kill her team with the last-chance workout. Tara says it's a beautiful thing. These guys are also concerned, though, that it's basically the only time they've had to workout all week. Jillian compliments Tara on some crazy high-intensity move that she's doing, and Tara replies that she can be strong when she wants to be, it's just that Jillian scares the shit out of her sometimes. She scares the shit out of me sometimes, too, and I'm not even in the same room with her.
With that, it's time for the weigh-in. Mike is 5 pounds away from breaking the record for most weight lost on campus, previously held by Roger of "pride on three" fame. He steps on the scale, knowing that he didn't spend a lot of time in the gym this week so the record might have to wait another week. Mike goes from 248 to 243, for a loss of 5! He did it! Aw, yay. Mike confirms that he did it in the same time frame, and is ecstatic about the record and about losing 145 pounds in 15 weeks. However, as first to step on the scale, he knows he's not out of danger yet. His 5 pounds lost equals a total weight loss of 2.02%. Ron is next, really looking pretty good without that beard. He goes from 308 to 302 for a loss of 6 or 1.95%. Ron hasn't been at this weight since he was about 13, which is crazy.
Tara is next on the scale, and needs to have lost more than 3 pounds to stay safe. She goes from 186 to 182, for a loss of 4 or 2.15%. She's safe. Tara's lost 112 pounds since coming to campus. Next up is Filipe, who of course dedicates his impending weight loss to Sione with a look skyward. [Maybe Sione did die, and they just didn't tell us? - Z] Filipe needs to have lost more than 5 pounds to stay safe. He goes from 252 to 247 for a loss of 5 exactly. Not quite enough. Filipe tells us that Sione also only needed one more pound, and he went home. It is written. Anyway, a 5-pound loss is 1.98%. Mike is definitely safe. Helen is next to weigh in, and has to lose more than 3 pounds. She really looks phenomenal, and I'm sure her husband is secretly hoping that she'll be eliminated so she can come home for a calorie-burning regimen of sexy times. Helen goes from 169 to 162 for a loss of 7. Holy crow! Everyone, including Helen, is shocked. That's 4.14%, and Helen is more than safe.
