Seven Remaining Contestants Get Amazing Makeovers – And a Chance to Win a New Car!
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – November 17, 2010 – It’s one of the most eagerly anticipated events every season – “The Biggest Loser” makeover episode! Celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves guest stars in this special episode that finds the remaining seven contestants getting incredible makeovers and their own People Magazine photo shoot – and walking the runway for Ford Warriors in Pink on “The Biggest Loser” episode airing Tuesday, November 23 (8-10 p.m. ET).
First, the contestants head to the salon of sought-after Hollywood hairdresser Ken Paves, who has crafted hairstyles for Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, Lady Ga Ga, Celine Dion, Fergie, Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, and many more. He creates amazing new looks for each of the contestants, and then they’re off to a People Magazine photo shoot.
Later, the made over players meet host Alison Sweeney on a runway celebrating Ford Warriors in Pink. Ford is a 16-year partner of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and has dedicated more than $105 million to the breast cancer cause. Contestants will demonstrate the fashionable side of support by modeling Ford Warriors in Pink apparel and accessories available at www.fordcares.com to highlight their transformed physiques. And Shanna, one of this season’s contestant hopefuls who didn’t make it to the ranch in the premiere episode, will be on hand to talk about her personal battle with breast cancer and how she has battled that as well as obesity.
After the contestants have shown off their stylish and slimmer selves on the runway, it’s time for emotional backstage reunions with loved ones flown in to help them celebrate their big day. For the contestants, it will be the first time their families and friends have seen them since coming to the ranch – and most are blown away by the transformations.
After the makeovers, it’s back to reality at the ranch, and then a challenge that will give the lucky winner the biggest prize yet this season — a 2011 Ford Edge. The contestants’ stamina and endurance are put to the test, but it’s their hearts that really come into play when a surprise turn of events at the challenge leads to one of the most heartwarming moments in “Biggest Loser” history. Finally, one player reaches a milestone at the weigh-in, after which an elimination round sends another contestant home.
Viewers will also have their own opportunity to win a 2011 Ford Edge by logging on to www.nbc.com/warriorsinpink by December 31 for their chance to win.
