They arrive at the room with the giant scale, and Caroline reminds them about their progress so far. The groups are ready and Lisa is first to step to the scale. She has lost 12 pounds. She is thrilled and Maurice is shocked. Gary is next, and has lost seven pounds. He feels great and Caroline notes that he has lost a total of 21 pounds. Kelly is down 10 pounds, and then it is Aaron's turn. He's dropped another seven pounds, bringing his total loss to 35 pounds.
David has lost seven pounds and Andrea six. The tally so far - Red team has lost a total of 29 pounds and Blue team 23. Ryan steps up and his weight has dropped to 294 for a loss of 14 pounds. He tells us that this is the first time he has been below 300 pounds in years. Now he is shooting for 200! Kelly Mac is disappointed with her loss of five pounds, calling herself a failure. Matt is next and very worried. He steps up to the scale, and his previous weight of 291 is displayed on the giant screen. But, of course, we must endure yet another commercial.
Back from the break, Caroline reminds us what's at stake. The numbers on the scale flash dramatically and stop at 274 pounds. Matt has lost 17 pounds. Maurice is shocked again, and Gary calls it a devastating blow. The Red team has lost 60 pounds and Maurice is up next. He says he busted his butt this week. He takes off his shirt, hoping to shave an ounce or two. He's down to 415 pounds but his eight-pound loss is not enough to save his team. He tells us that he doesn't know how much harder he can work. Caroline sends them off to decide who will be eliminated.
Kelly Mac starts packing as soon as she gets back to the house. She thinks that, because she lost the least, she will be the one to go. Andrea is the strategist and figures that, since Aaron has already lost 35 pounds and is halfway to his goal, he should be the one to go. In some great clips of them working out, we listen to each of them talk about how much they want to be there. There is a lot of dialog going on. Aaron encourages the guys to adjust and they all decide to vote for Kelly. But Gary has second thoughts about this, and tells her that he isn't going to vote her off.
Aaron wants to pray to ask for strength to do what they have to do. But no one seems to be in the mood to pray so he just straight-out asks God for help. And then there is another commercial.
Blue team marches down the stairs with their platters to convene in the refrigerator room for the results of their votes. Kelly says that she thinks she deserves to stay because she is strong and determined. Maurice feels that his team members can trust him. Caroline tells them that, "It's time to cut the fat."
Aaron votes Andrea, and she votes Aaron. She tells us that she voted based on the entire picture of the team. Gary says he loves this person, but votes Andrea, as he shakes his head sadly. Kelly tells the group that this is not going the way she expected and says she chose Aaron because she thought he would vote for her.
Maurice has the deciding vote and says that his vote was based on potential. The person he voted for is the one he feels is the most ready to go into the real world and continue his weight loss. He votes for Aaron. Aaron says he is worried for them. As his refrigerator light goes off, Caroline tells them that she is confused by their choice. I don't think they really understand the implications of this emotional and silly action.
In closing, Aaron tells us that the next time we see him, we will see a skinny, healthy, happy person. Sure enough, we see a photo of him now, and he has lost another 27 pounds and is down to 198. This is one great looking guy!
In clips from next week's episode, it appears that Bob is very, very unhappy with their decision and is working them harder than ever. Their decision to eliminate Aaron may well have doomed their chances as a team. But, they still have Maurice, and, I am betting that he will really start to work harder after this. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
