And without any further ado, we're at the weigh-in. Sami says that it's been over two weeks since the contestants were weighed in at home, so they should have big numbers. There are some other terrible differences with this weigh-in. Tonight, half of the contestants will be below the yellow line, and the eight players in the bottom half are all in danger of elimination. This isn't your mother's Biggest Loser! Unless your mother is Joan Crawford. No wire hangers!
Mark is up first to weigh in. He goes from 421 pounds to 380 pounds for a difference of 41 pounds! That's 9.74%. Tina is next, going from 263 to 247, for a loss of 16 pounds. That's 6.08%. Patrick is next, and has a belly of really staggering proportions. He goes from 400 pounds to 378, for a loss of 22 pounds. That's 5.50%. Rick and his unfortunate moobs are next. He goes from 350 pounds to 314, for a loss of 36 pounds. He's basically happy that he's still alive after that first workout when he nearly passed out. Rick has lost 10.29%, which rockets him up to first place. Next we have Allie, who starts at 322 pounds. Her current weight is 305, for a loss of 17. She's shy and proud and rather adorable. She's lost 5.28% in total.
Frado is next. He starts at 367 pounds and goes to 340, for a loss of 27 pounds. He says he hasn't seen 350 in God knows how long. I mean, he's not that much above 350, so I find that claim dubious. He's lost 7.36%. Next we have Sophia, who goes from 272 pounds to 258, for a loss of 14 pounds or 5.15%. She says she's realized that she's okay, and feels fricking amazing. Next we have Ada, who started at 258 pounds. She now weighs 240, for a loss of 18 or 6.98%. With eight people left to weigh in, things are going to get interesting. For every person who weighs in, one will be safe and one won't.
Burgandy, who I totally forgot about, is next. She needs to have lost more than 23 pounds to be guaranteed safety. She goes from 231 to 219, for a loss of 12 pounds. That's 5.19%, so for the moment she's still above the yellow line. Sophia, however, is bumped down and facing elimination. Meanwhile, Rick is guaranteed safety. Jesse is next. He goes from 369 to 339 for a loss of 30 pounds. He jokes that he didn't even get to say goodbye to 350. He's lost 8.13%, which puts him near the top and bumps Burgandy below the yellow line. Mark is definitely safe. Jessica is up next, and has to lose 22 pounds to be safe. She goes from 282 to 268 for a loss of 14 pounds. She starts crying, but in the end says that 14 pounds is pretty damned good. She's lost 4.96% and is below the yellow line. Meanwhile, Jesse is safe.
