Every single Biggest Loser contestant wants to make it to Makeover Week; if they tell you something different, they are lying!

As a contestant, you know your time on the Ranch after Makeover Week is like the equivalent of entering into the playoffs off the game. On top of that, there are a ton of emotions that come over you when getting made over, not the least of which it is the first time you get to see your loved ones in months. They offer support and help to reenergize you and they help all the contestants realize how far they have come in their weight loss journeys.

To continue this season’s theme of paying it forward, the Biggest Loser joined forces with Warriors in Pink and Susan G. Komen for the Cure during the Makeover Week fashion show. I love that, but I also love how they brought back Shanna, the breast cancer survivor from earlier this season, to talk about her own recovery and weight loss.

Now, onto the makeovers! Elizabeth looked sassy and showed the attitude to go along with it. I no longer think she has self-esteem issues! Lisa looked beautiful and when she saw her kids, it was like you could see the light turn on that just made her shine. Patrick took the win for the Most Stylish Father and seeing him with his two sons, my heart just melted. Mark looked very hip and ready for a night on the town! Brendan can definitely be Mark’s wingman as he looks extremely stylish and also ready to hit the clubs. Ada could join Mark and Brendan – she is definitely sparkling [I enjoyed seeing her strut her stuff on the catwalk because you could see she was uncomfortable at first but embraced her transformation at the end]. Frado hasn’t shaved in 18 years, but he should have much earlier! He looks so much younger and youthful. My favorite part of Frado’s makeover was when his wife kept touching his face. I couldn’t help but laugh!

The stair challenge has been done before but not with this type of generous ending. I love how Ada and Brendan allowed Patrick to win because he needed the wheels more than they did. On the flip side, I wanted Ada to take ownership and win the challenge on her own. It makes me question if she will do all that she can to win the title of the Biggest Loser, or will she sabotage herself?
