It's makeover week on The Biggest Loser, and the five remaining contestants are excited to head home and unveil their new selves to their friends and family. They ride in a limo to meet fashion icons Tim Gunn and Ken Paves, who will be handling their makeovers. Tim announces that the kids will also be receiving makeovers.
First, Tim meets with the Biggest Loser kids to help them find the perfect new look. Tim lets the kids choose their own fashionable outfits and then decides to give the kids his own fashion advice. The kids are thrilled with their new looks, and they can't wait to show themselves off to their family and friends. After the kids are taken care of, Tim turns his focus to the adults.
The contestants are initially thrilled to see the sizes of the clothes they can now fit into, and Tim is happy to highlight their accomplishments after 10 weeks on the show. He carefully selects clothes for each of the contestants, and they're all amazed by the results.
Next, the contestants head to Ken Paves' salon in Beverly Hills. Tim has handled the wardrobe, and now it's Ken's turn to transform the contestants with haircuts and makeup. The kids love their new haircuts, and the contestants can't wait to see their completed looks. After Ken's work is done, it's time for the contestants to head home for their big reveals.
One by one, the contestants arrive home to an audience of family and friends who are excited to see the contestants' new looks. Their families and friends are blown away. This is truly the day that the contestants and kids have been waiting for. The contestants are happy to tell their friends and family how much weight they've dropped, and the results are clear. They all look absolutely stunning, and they're not even finished yet!
Each of the contestants receives a letter at home, offering them a chance at immunity for the next weigh-in if they can drop of their body weight while they're at home. It will be tough challenge, but a good example of what life will be like after they leave the ranch. It's a tough challenge, but the contestants are up for it. Additionally, the contestants must lead a group from their community in a workout to demonstrate what they've learned so far.
One by one, the contestants head out for a meal with their family and friends and are inundated with unhealthy restaurant temptations. It's a brutal challenge, but the contestants stay strong, summon their will power and avoid the temptations of their favorite unhealthy foods.
The next day, the contestants meet with their family, friends and community members in their hometowns to demonstrate some of the fitness techniques they've learned on the ranch. After a few days at home, the contestants turn their attention to their own goal: losing of their weight in time for this week's weigh-in.
It's weigh-in time, and the trainers are eager to see how the contestants have faired during their two weeks at home. Without further ado, the contestants begin their weigh-ins. Danni drops 10 pounds, securing immunity this week. Jackson takes the scale next and sheds 15 pounds. He's also safe this week. Joe loses 17 pounds. So far, everyone is safe from elimination this week, but there are still two contestants left.
Jeff steps on the scale next and logs an incredible 19-pound loss. Gina hits the scale for tonight's final weigh-in. She needs to have lost nine pounds to avoid automatic elimination. The scale ticks down to show that Gina has dropped 10 pounds. All of the contestants met their goals, which means that nobody is eliminated this week. It's been nothing but success from these remaining five contestants, and the trainers couldn't be happier.
Eager to dampen the mood, Alison announces that, at next week's weigh-in, two contestants will be eliminated and America will vote on one of them. It's been a tough road, and while the contestants have done an incredible job, Alison reminds them that they're not quite done yet.
