Danny weighs in next. He started the competition at 430 pounds. When he left the ranch, he weighed 288 pounds. Danny needs to have lost more than 24 pounds to make it to the finals. Danny's current weight is 229, which means he lost 59 pounds! That's incredible! His face has gotten increasingly handsome, too. Danny notes that he's 14 pounds away from being half the man he used to be. Danny has lost a total of 201 pounds since coming on campus, making him one of only four players to ever lose 200 pounds with The Biggest Loser, and he still has time to go. Danny's total percentage lost is 20.49%. Holy smokes. Danny is guaranteed a spot in the finale, and Liz is definitely below the yellow line.
Finally, there's Rudy. He weighed 442 pounds when he first came to campus, and 296 pounds before he headed home for two months. Rudy needs to have lost more than 25 pounds to best Amanda and get a spot in the finale. His current weight is 253, meaning that he's lost 43 pounds. That's also pretty great. Rudy says he hasn't been this light since high school. Rudy has lost 14.53%, and is definitely in the final three.
This of course means that Amanda and Liz are both below the yellow line, and get to plead their cases to us, the voters. Liz tells us that she's there pleading her case. Hmm. Convincing. Amanda asked us to vote for her once before. She wants us to help her one more time. Liz says that she knows she has it in her to win this. At 49, she's the oldest female to make it to the final four, and if we vote her through she will be the oldest contestant ever in the final three. Eh, that's enough to convince me. I support oldsters! Amanda says that she'll make us proud and will do everything she can to prove that she hasn't wasted this opportunity.
So now it's up to us to vote. All the power is ours! Go to nbc.com and remember there's a limit of ten votes per email address. Voting ends at 3 p.m. EST on December 2. Hey! That's not a very long time to vote! The finalist will be revealed within the first five minutes of next week's finale. Woo hoo!
Next week: finale, suckers! I sure hope it isn't three hours long again.
