As Alison tells “B” and Amy that they are the ones up for elimination, the other seven breathe a collective sigh of relief.
The next day, the trainers come to meet their teams. Jillian learns Amy is at risk but counts noses and knows (sorry, bad pun) that Amy ought to be safe. However, Isabeau indicates she’s not so sure, because Amy keeps saying she wants to go home. Jillian turns to Amy and asks, “You want to be here, correct?” and Amy is just a second too slow in responding, “…Yes.”
As the meeting breaks up, they try to make the vote suspenseful by showing several people who seem to be undecided. Isabeau admits to Jillian that “B” is a bigger threat. Bill sees both of them as a threat, and quotes some numbers to Jillian without formally making a point. Some of it was that “B” has been heavy forever, whereas with Amy it’s only the last couple of years.
Kim comes to the dorm to see “B” packing, but asks him if he was above or below the line anyway. I’d have thought that was obvious. Both are concerned about the complete elimination of the Red Te… naw, I can’t type all that out again, and I doubt you want to read it, either.
Talking with the three un-nominated ladies of the Black Team (Julie, Isabeau, and Hollie), Neil says that Amy has tried to stab them all in the back at some point. We didn’t see all of that, I don’t think, but all immediately nod their agreement with him. Neil then finds “B” and tells him that Isabeau is an undecided voter and that “B” needs to fight to stay.
“B” seeks Isabeau out and finds her in her dorm. Isabeau confirms she is still undecided and although she doubts Amy’s desire to stay at the Campus, she worries that voting against Amy sends a worrisome message to Hollie and Julie. “B” tells her that he’s not sure he can keep up the effort level at home yet. The scene ends with Isabeau saying that if she writes his name down, it’s not what she wants to do.
All nine players file into the Elimination Room with seven of them carrying voting trays. Alison asks “B” about the pressure of being the last Red Team member.
Just. Shoot. Me. Now.
“B” concludes by saying that he wants to stay and he needs to stay. Alison asks Amy what she said to the seven voters tonight. She replies that she didn’t say much, because “B” is her friend and she wouldn’t campaign against him. With that, they vote.
Nicole votes first, against Amy. Kae is next, and says she could not vote against someone who is hard-working, honest, fair and uncomplaining… and with that, she votes for Amy. Ouch. Neil is next – we know his vote is also for Amy.
Julie, sitting in the fourth seat, votes out the threat that is Bryan, and so do Hollie and Bill. That ties it up and Isabeau has the deciding vote.
Citing reasons of integrity over loyalty, Isabeau says, “One decision I can’t sleep with, but the other I can’t live with,” and sends Amy home. Ouch, again.
Alison notes a lot of strong words were said tonight. A tearful Amy says she feels like she was stabbed in the back. She thanks Julie, Hollie, and Bill for their loyalty and suggests to them that there’s someone on the team they cannot trust. Isabeau says it was a last-minute change for her, because she could not live with her first decision.
“B” squeezes her arm, but we don’t see hugs for anybody as Amy leaves.
Alison has a little surprise for everyone still in the game, and she distributes a manila envelope with the players’ name on it. Alas, we won’t find out what’s inside until next week. Everyone seems very happy about it, so I’m guessing it might be letters from home.
In her funeral video, Amy says she’s proud of what she accomplished. We see her arrive home and see her two young daughters. In more current video, Amy tells us she’s lost 100 pounds and feels great.
My Opinion: They sent the wrong one home. This vote was as silly as getting rid of Jean-Robert before James on Survivor: China.
Hollie and Julie need to step it up since statistically they are lagging behind the rest by more than a full percent point.
Next Time: One of my ever-astute readers has informed me that during the sweeps period, Biggest Loser will be two hours long every week.
