July 19, 2010 - Ballroom
Wow, who knew that Corey and Michael could dance. Obviously, ballroom dance agrees with both of these contestants. After watching them for several weeks I was positive that either one would be eliminated this week. Unfortunately, ballroom is not done every week so their fortunes may not fare so well next week.
Ah, poor Erica she was eliminated. I must admit her face is glowing and showing the results of healthy eating. I hope her husband is OK, but I wonder why he would dump the news he did while she was in the middle of a competition that could help both her and her family both healthwise and financially. Seems a bit like sabotage to me and perphaps a way of controlling his wife. He might be afraid of losing her now that she is taking control of her life instead of devoting 100% to her husband and kids.
I like that they showed before and after photos you can really see the weight loss. Very impressive that Adamme lost 10 inches from his waist going from 50" to 40". Adamme was also the first contestant to have lost over 50lbs, 52.1 lbs to be exact. Michael and Corey should also have lost over 50lbs by next week.
I do think Latoya is a bit arrogant as she is knows she is a good dancer and I think she depends on her dance skills a bit too much. That is why Adamme and Briana were such forces as they could dance and lose weight.
Katie did manage to save herself because she only received a 6 for her dance score but lost 6 lbs this week. Stephanie also managed to save herself by having a 8.3 dance score but only losing 1.7 lbs.
Adamme - 52.1
Corey - 49.0
Michael - 49.7
Erica - 28.9
Katie - 31.6
Latoya - 29.3
Stephanie - 32.2
