Biggest Loser Season 9 Episode 16 Recap: It’s Makeover Week!


NUP_137030_0419It’s Makeover Week!

Ally meets the contestants and gives them the three words they have been waiting to hear: Its Makeover Week!
Jonathan Antin meets the contestants and gets the clippers out.  This should be good since this season could easily be called ‘Hair’. As expected the makeovers and transformations are amazing!  While the ladies all look glamorous the guys are dressed in some funky outfits. Nevertheless the contestants are all striking, especially Sunshine, Sam, Michael and Daris.  It is amazing what a haircut can do :-)
You WERE Made to Shine!

Grammy Award Winning singer Ashanti serenades the contestants with her song ‘Shine’.  Here are some of the powerful lyrics to the song:
Don’t let them change you
Remember you were born to shine.
The truth is that there is someone different, amazing, unique and beautiful inside you.  That person wants to get out. But you may just have to change to let him or her out.
Jacobs Ladder To Hell
In an incredible endurance challenge the contestants each mount a Jacobs Ladder suspended above a pool.  The contestant who falls off first is penalized with a one pound disadvantage.  The contestant who lasts the longest get a one pound advantage at the weigh in.
Ashley falls in first and the battle comes down to Daris and Koli who both put in over 2 hours 30 minutes before Daris falls in the water.  Both Daris and Koli will end up with a weight advantage because the length of the challenge was quite a calorie burn.

Meet The Proud Parents At The Last Chance Workout
Bob and Jillian meet the contestants back at the ranch and comment on how amazing they look.  Then the final 6 contestants must work as hard as possible to stay on the ranch and this last chance workout is incredibly hard.
But during this workout Daris admits that he gave up in the Jacobs Ladder Challenge and this does not sit well at all with Bob who scolds Daris.  Then Bob puts Daris though one of the hardest workouts you will ever see on the ranch.  And with every drip of sweat Daris mentally becomes stronger and stronger and stronger.  That is great TV and great motivation for each of us to push it a little harder in the gym next time.
Lose or Go Home
At the weigh in this week most of the contestants post awesome numbers.  Except for Sam and Michael. Sam and Michael both fall below the yellow line and Michael makes one of the most impassioned pleas for survival I have ever heard.  It is obvious that both contestants truly want to remain on the ranch.  In a tie vote Sam goes home to a hero’s welcome.
To no one’s surprise Sam still looks amazing and has moved to LA where he now lives with Stephanie of the purple team.
