UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 11, 2009 - It's one of the most eagerly anticipated events every season - "The Biggest Loser" makeover episode -- and Tim Gunn and Tabatha Coffey (Bravo's "Tabatha's Salon Takeover") return to help transform the remaining six contestants on the popular NBC series on Tuesday, November 17 (8:30-10:00 p.m. ET).
First, Gunn works his fashion magic helping the contestants pick out stylish new outfits to flatter their slimmer selves. Then Tabatha transforms them further with complete salon makeovers, helping the final six look fabulous before they give speeches about their weight loss journeys to motivate others at a TV Guide Magazine event.
Then it's time for amazing reveals and emotional reunions, when the made-over contestants show off their incredible new looks to loved ones flown in to help them celebrate their big day and hear their emotional speeches. Later, the contestants face a high-flying challenge across a canyon divide, and the winner is rewarded with a two-week trip to "The Biggest Loser" resort at Fitness Ridge in southern Utah. Then a tense elimination follows the weigh-in, sending another contestant home. Alison Sweeney hosts the series, and trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels also star.
The makeover episode also includes a special hunger awareness segment featuring the band OneRepublic helping out at a Feeding America event in their hometown of Denver. In 2007, after seven years together as a band, OneRepublic took the world by storm with their debut release "Dreaming Out Loud." The album included the smash single "Apologize" which shattered digital sales and airplay records worldwide. Their sophomore set "Waking Up," on Mosley/Interscope Records, will be released November 17th as first single "All The Right Moves" climbs up the radio charts.
