'The Biggest Loser' eliminates Erin Willett after she wins advantage on scale

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/16/2016 

The Biggest Loser: Temptation Nation eliminated Erin Willett during the first half of Monday night's two-hour episode on NBC.

Erin, a 26-year-old singer and songwriter from Brooklyn, NY, was ousted from The Biggest Loser after she fell below the yellow line by posting one of the two lowest weight-loss percentages at the weigh-in and then the rest of the season's cast voted her out instead of Felicia Buffkin, a 29-year-old nanny from Raleigh, NC, who was also in jeopardy.

"I've gotten from the ranch what I needed to get from the ranch and I'm not mad about it," Erin said in her final words.

"It's just how it played out. I wanted to change my life. I was stuck and having this opportunity to come to this ranch has given me so much more than any prize money could give me. As much as I might be going home, I'm going home with that knowledge of how strong I really am and that's invaluable to me."

Erin got eliminated even though she won the week's endurance challenge and a one-pound advantage on the scale. She also got to choose a contestant to give a one-pound disadvantage to at the weigh-in.

At the weigh-in, Erin decided to give the disadvantage to Roberto Hernandez, a 36-year-old physical/health/driver's education teacher from Burbank, IL, just simply through process of elimination.

Jacky Kmet, a 42-year-old high school counselor from Hainesport, NJ, then stepped on the scale and learned she had dropped from 229 to 221 pounds, losing eight pounds and posting a 3.49% weight-loss percentage.

Jacky's husband Stephen Kmet, a 43-year-old pharmaceutical sales recruiter from Hainesport, NJ, fell from 228 to 219 pounds. He lost nine pounds and posted a 3.95% weight-loss percentage.

Colby Wright, a 31-year-old car dealership salesman from K'Ville, GA, shed 11 pounds and posted a 4.42% weight-loss percentage after dropping from 249 to 238 pounds. Colby was the first person to lose 100 pounds this season.

Felicia weighed-in next. She fell from 183 to 179 pounds, losing four pounds and posting a 2.19% weight-loss percentage.

Roberto dropped from 250 to 240 pounds, losing 10 pounds. With his one-pound disadvantage, Roberto ended up with a 3.60% weight-loss percentage.

Erin only lost three pounds this week and posted a 2.20% weight-loss percentage thanks to her one-pound advantage. She fell from 182 to 179 pounds.

Erin and Felicia therefore fell below the yellow line, and the majority of contestants voted Erin out since she's a bigger threat heading into the finale next week.

In a post-The Biggest Loser update, Erin began the show weighing 238 pounds and currently weighs 157 pounds. Since losing a total of 81 pounds, she finally found value in herself and knows her father would be very proud of her.
