It was makeover week on The Biggest Loser Tuesday – the episode that every contestant dreams of reaching and one that moves me to tears every time.
By the time I saw the contestants this week, they had been with Tim Gunn and Ken Paves and they each looked stunning. Marie’s hair change was genius! She looked so breathtaking and clearly her husband was shocked. I’m so glad she was willing to trust Ken’s vision.
When Rachel walked out, my jaw literally dropped and I could have never dreamed on day one that she would look like this. Her smile lit up the night and to have her parents then tell her how great she looked was just such an incredible moment.
The women continued to be stunning and to have such special reunions. When Jennifer’s daughter kept saying “Mommy” it was such a great moment. She has such gorgeous girls and their happiness for her was just magical. Chelsea looked absolutely stunning! Tanya’s reaction when her family walked up was priceless, as was her talk with her kids about her plans to be active with her family.
