The Biggest Loser: makeovers, fairy tales and new cars

Last night’s episode of “The Biggest Loser” on NBC was overshadowed again by “The Voice,” and that’s fine because it kept the show to one hour. It was also, finally, makeover week. “Project Runway’s” Tim Gunn rode in on a horse and buggy to the Biggest Loser ranch and announced that it was not only makeover week, but that he had two surprises.

So the five semi-finalists–Austin, Hannah, Olivia, Irene and Jay–were treated to makeovers, and most of them looked great. Hannah’s hair was dyed blonde and looked borderline hideous. Then they had their family members waiting for them back at the ranch for a celebration, including Gunn’s hiring of the band One Republic. Well, I know he didn’t actually hire them, but you get the drift.

The Biggest Loser: moving right along…

It’s hard to believe we’re just a few short weeks away from the finale of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser,” but there it is. Last night we went from six contestants to five, and either they are going to have a final 3 again, or they are going to throw us another curveball and let someone else back in….these tricky producers have done it before, and I have a funny feeling it’s coming.

Meanwhile, last night the six hopefuls were treated to makeovers, led by “Project Runway’s” Tim Gunn, and a TV Guide sponsored event that had each contestant share their personal journey wth their families and an audience of about 300. Most of them looked pretty good, but I’m not sure why they insisted on cutting Rebecca’s hair so short…both her and Amanda were made to look like ten years older.

The Biggest Loser: Faith restored in one contestant

Last night’s episode of “The Biggest Loser” began with Filipe reading a letter from his cousin Sione after Sione had been eliminated the week before, basically inspiring Filipe to keep the family flame burning at the ranch. Filipe was reading the letter to Kristin and Kristin made a comment that the last 7 weeks, one of Bob’s contestants had been eliminated, and that Jillian had a knack for delivering the winner of the show the last few seasons. Hmmm.

Then came the challenge, a frightening one in which the contestants had to cross a 700 foot zip line over a 10 story canyon. Yikes. Kristin said it can’t possibly look as scary on TV as it did in person, and I don’t doubt that for a second. As they began, Ron took a few steps in and realized his knees wouldn’t be able to take it. Ron has basically participated in about 5% of these challenges. Meanwhile, Filipe jumped out to a huge lead, Mikey got over his fear of heights, and Tara slipped and was having trouble getting back up on the line. But lo and behold, as she does every single time, Tara got back up and figured out how to effectively move quickly down the line. She was catching up to Filipe fast, and said something like, “I had a strategy…” I’m so sick of hearing that. Naturally, Filipe couldn’t keep up with her and Tara won. Mrs. Mike is officially as sick of Tara winning every week as I am. She won a $25K package of food for a year or something like that from Jennie-O, and just keeps stockpiling her prizes.
