Hollie is next, and is worried that her big number of last week will be followed by a small number. If Hollie tried looking happy once in a while, she'd be really gorgeous. She goes from 204 to 201, for a difference of 3. She interviews that she wants to get out of the 200s so much. Hollie's percentage of weight lost is 1.47%, which puts her on the edge of the yellow line and means that Isabeau is safe.
Julie weighs in next, and shudders to think of both herself and Hollie being below the yellow line. Julie goes from 176 to 171, for a loss of 5. Wow! She kisses the scale, she's so happy. Her percentage lost is 2.84%, which puts her at the top of the list, and also means that Hollie -- and what appears to be the giant bump on her head -- is below the yellow line for sure.
Finally, we have Neil. He has to lose more than four pounds to be safe, and to get below 300 pounds. Neil says that the last time he weighed less than 300 pounds was probably in eighth or ninth grade. That is pretty crazy. Given that the previews kept talking about someone reaching a major milestone, I'm guessing he's safe. Neil goes from 303 to 298, for a loss of 5. He's very excited, and the others seem happy for him as well. Neil apologizes to Bryan, who we are left to surmise is below the yellow line. Indeed, Neil's percentage lost is 1.65. Once this number shows up, there is a pregnant pause before it jumps to the spot just above the yellow line, because the show thinks we don't understand how fractions work and wants to draw out the suspense. Bryan is ready to campaign to save his own butt, but thinks that he might be in danger since he's seen as a bigger threat than Hollie. Sami sends the contestants off to figure out who gets the boot.
Bryan is unhappy thinking about breaking the yellow line news to Kim, and says that if he's eliminated, he doesn't know what will happen to her. I'm not totally sure either, but I really hope it's something bad. He talks to the others in the kitchen, and tries to convince them -- even though the Black alliance seems pretty strong -- that Hollie might be an equal if not bigger threat. His speech is pretty much greeted with silence, though Julie and Isabeau give him high fives and kisses on his way to pack. Kim is upset when she learns of Bryan's fate. She knows that Bryan's chances aren't good, with the Black Team having the majority vote. While I'd be sad to see Bryan go, the thought of a dual Bryan/Kim elimination does fill my heart with a tiny amount of glee. Okay, not so tiny. Bryan gets a little emotional, and Kim pouts. But Bryan knows he did everything in his power. He even cut out the soy sauce and ate whatever nasty oatmeal and Nabisco 100 Calorie Snack Packs the show insists on promoting! Kim says that Bryan has her forever, and that she's not going anywhere. The finish line is never, she says, as tears roll down her face, and she knows that Bryan is ready. "Fly, little bird, fly!" she says, much to my chagrin. She interviews that if Bryan goes and the Red Team is extinct, she'll still be proud. She guarantees that the Red Team will all get their lives back, and for her that's success. Bryan picks Kim up and carries her across the Biggest Loser quad as she asks him not to go. I hope Bryan's wife slaps him in the head every time he and Kim get a little too close for comfort.
