The teams converge for the weigh-in. Caroline reminds them that Team Red came from behind last week, and asks them who they have chosen to exclude from the weigh-in. They choose Lizzeth. She still must be weighed though, and, when she steps on the scale, we discover that her weight remains the same at 164 pounds. Good choice, Team Red.
The weigh-in progresses. Aaron is up next and has lost seven pounds. He’s shocked. It goes downhill from here. Ryan only loses three pounds and wonders what he did wrong. Andrea’s down three as well, and Aaron is flabbergasted. Dave has lost nothing, and both Kelly Mac and Lisa only lose a pound. Kelly feels defeated and humbled, and Lisa says she worked harder than ever and wonders what went wrong.
The discouraging results continue. Gary says it’s a “hit in the face” for him when he discovers that he has only dropped two pounds. Kelly is also down two pounds and thinks that, maybe, she should just learn to be happy as she is. Maurice didn’t lose any weight this week either. But it’s Matt who scores the shocker. He has actually gained three pounds. He is stunned and immediately breaks down, crying, as Lisa says she doesn’t understand. Team Red has lost the least amount and will face elimination. Aaron is actually this week’s “biggest loser” and accounts for nearly half of his team’s total score.
Kelly Mac says her heart broke in half as she watched Matt’s reaction. It really is heartbreaking. All that work and the totals just don’t show it. But, as a veteran of the weight-loss wars myself, I do know that, initially, you tend to lose a significant amount of weight, but this is usually water. Once that is gone, there is a tendency to level off.
Bob stops by and is relieved that Team Blue made it through. He tells them that what they lost this week are “real” pounds. Jillian tells Team Red that their bodies are in a state of shock and, that, if they stay the course, they will begin to see results again. Red Team meets to decide who should be eliminated. Kelly questions Dave’s motivations and work ethic. Matt thinks he should be the one to go home since he gained weight. Lizzeth feels that this opportunity is a blessing to her. Kelly wants to keep Lizzeth, and tries to convince Lisa to switch her vote to Dave. It’s so hard to decide, really. They all really want to be there. Lizzeth feels that she works harder and stronger than Dave, and says that he quits when the going gets tough.
Team Red is still deliberating. It’s getting ugly. Lizzeth goes off on David who is annoying her with his whistling. She’s mad because she has worked her butt off and thinks that he has a crappy attitude. He continues to whistle. Finally, it’s time for the elimination ceremony. Team Red convenes in the refrigerator room with their platters. Caroline asks Matt what gave him the strength to not eat the carrot cake. He says he is there to lose weight.
Caroline tells them that it’s “time to cut the fat.” Dave votes Lizzeth, saying she will probably lose the least amount of weight. Kelly feels that one person has not given the team his all, and votes Dave. Lizzeth says that to be part of a team one has to participate, and Dave has not. Ryan points out that it was a tough week but that two of the people can come back and make it work. “Sorry Dave… I’m voting for Lizzeth,” he jokes. Matt doesn’t think that Lizzeth can lose enough weight to sustain the team and votes for her. Caroline tells us that if there’s a tie, the Blue Team picks the one to be voted off. Lisa is in a fix here. She’s so vulnerable and indecisive, but ends up voting for Lizzeth. Awwww. Caroline tells her to pack her bags and say goodbye. Lizzeth’s refrigerator light goes off. Kelly says Ryan was cruel and is appalled by his making a joke.
Lizzeth tells us that the next time they see her, they will see a “hot girl.” She has since lost nine more pounds.
There will be no Biggest Loser next week due to election coverage. The show will return on November 9. I would like to take a moment here to encourage all of you to get out and vote next Tuesday. No matter which candidate you prefer, please let your voice be heard. Don’t let other people decide for you. It’s your future we’re talking about here. Thanks!
