It's Makeover Week on the ranch, and the contestants couldn't be more excited to receive the royal treatment from stylists Tim Gunn and Ken Paves. Wasting no time, the contestants head to Beverly Hills to meet with their style saviors. Before the makeovers begin, Tim explains that the contestants' families are flying in right now. He also wants the contestants to know how happy he and Ken are to be involved in Makeover Week.
After a sentimental moment, Tim pulls Tanya into the backroom for a fitting. Tanya doesn't think she'll fit into any of Tim's selections, but she's pleasantly surprised to find that she not only fits into Tim's selections, but she looks fabulous in the garments. Bobby meets with Tim next and is extremely pleased with the results of his new fashion sensibilities.
Next, Tim talks with Rachel about her dream outfit. When she tells him about a favorite black dress that she used to have, he finds another beautiful black dress for her. Rachel is beautiful and astonished to see herself in the mirror. Chelsea joins Tim next to model a cute skirt and jean jacket ensemble, which brings her to tears of joy. Tim finds a beautiful red dress for Marie, which she loves, then selects incredible outfits for David and Jennifer. It's an emotional but fulfilling day for the contestants and for Tim, who can't help but get sentimental in the face of such amazing achievements.
Next, the contestants head over to the salon of Ken Paves, who's ready to give the contestants the makeover of their lives. With their confidence skyrocketing by the second, the ladies take their seats in the salon, and David has a heyday shaving his beard. After a few solid hours of dyeing, drying, snipping and clipping, the contestants have incredible new looks to go with their new wardrobes. Marie has always been excited about growing her hair longer when she loses the weight, but Ken suggests a short haircut for her.
That night, Alison takes the contestants to meet their family members. Rachel's parents are blown away by their daughter's new look. Bobby's parents can't believe how incredible their son looks. Alison hardly recognizes the new Chelsea, and her brother's mind is completely blown. His visit is also a surprise, because he's been working overseas for two years and Chelsea had no idea that he'd be visiting.
Jennifer looks stunning with her new style, and her husband and kids can't believe their eyes. Marie is not sure how she feels about her new short hairstyle, but her husband quickly confirms that she looks beautiful. Tanya looks incredible with her new style and hair, and her kids are completely speechless. Last but not least, a clean-shaven David meets with his family, who barely recognizes him. His daughters can't contain themselves, and they couldn't be prouder of their father for following through on his promise.
After reuniting with their families, the contestants share a meal with their cherished guests and reflect on the their past lives and the new people they've become during their time on the ranch. The contestants have time for a rigorous last chance workout with their trainers before it's time for the weekly weigh-ins.
With a tightened workout schedule and plenty of distraction, the trainers are nervous about the contestants' progress. As an added threat, tonight's weigh-in features a double elimination, which means that two contestants will be leaving the ranch tonight. Let the weigh-ins begin!
Bobby takes to the scale to register a six-pound loss. Tanya loses four pounds, Chelsea drops four pounds, and Rachel ditches four pounds. Marie bids farewell to three pounds, Jennifer relinquishes four pounds, and David abandons seven pounds. It's great news for David, but unfortunately Tanya and Marie are both headed home this week.
The competition has been narrowed down to five finalists: Bobby, Chelsea, Rachel, Jennifer and David will now face off to determine who will be Season 15's Biggest Loser!
