Makeover Week on Biggest Loser

May 4th, 2010 Posted in Biggest Loser Show

Contestants get to go shopping with a $1,000 each, and a brand new look. They will then go to a concert to enjoy and celebrate their new looks. For many of them, this was a new experience. One that they didn’t know how to do. Mike had to shop alone even after losing an entire person, he has to shop at the big and tall store.

New Hair For Everyone

Mike and Daris made the biggest change with their haircuts. They had such afros before.

Sunshine was met by her brothers in her mirror. Koli was met by his parents with a lai to celebrate his accomplishments. Ashley was met by her sister and friend. Sam looked amazing! His parents came with a lai. Daris looked completely different without the curly hair, and was met by his sister and father. Mike stepped in the mirrors and made an amazing transformation. He looked like a handsome man!! He was met by his sisters, one of which who wants to lose weight herself.

Ashanti Performs

Ashanti performed her single “Shine” for the contestants and their families.

Jacob’s Ladder Challenge

Each contestant has a Jacob’s Ladder suspended over a pool. If they fall off into the pool they are out of the challenge. The last person left on their ladder wins a 1 lb advantage. Jacob’s ladder is one that never stops (like a stairmaster). First one to fall into the water gets a 1 lb penalty!

Ashley was the first one out after only 3 minutes and got the penalty.

#2 Mike = 5 minutes
#3 Sunshine =47 minutes
#4 Sam = 55 minutes

Daris and Koli battled it out for a long time! They didn’t seem phased by the stairs. Daris finally jumped off at 2 and a half hours and Koli won a 1 lb advantage!

Elimination

Koli voted for Michael
Sunshine voted for Michael because he’s a threat
Ashley voted for Sam for gameplay reasons
Daris voted for Sam because he made an alliance with Mike

Because it was a tie vote, the person with the lowest percentage of weight loss goes home. And, that was Sam.

Sam was the only person in Biggest Loser history to achieve his goal weight on the ranch, so he only lost another 2 lbs since the ranch. Sam moved to LA, is dating Stephanie, and enjoying life!
