This week, the remaining contestants on “The Biggest Loser” were treated to the season’s most beloved episode – makeovers!

“Project Runway’s” Tim Gunn and hairstylist guru Ken Paves were enlisted to help give the remaining five contestants new looks.

Tim helped pick out great clothes, while Ken oversaw new ‘dos (and shaves for the men) – and even “Biggest Loser” kids Sunny, Biingo and Lindsay were treated to makeovers.

The contestants were then flown home for their big makeover reveals, where their friends, family and loved ones were overwhelmed by their new looks. Standouts included
Gina in a sexy blue gown and Joe, who looked very stylish and dapper.

While at home, the contestants were given their Challenge. They were asked to lose five percent of their body weight in just two weeks – if successful, they would be given immunity.

Being home came with another challenge for the contestants – staying on their regimens while being tempted by their hometown favorite restaurants.

In addition to working off five perfect of their body weight, the contestants were also asked to lead a community workout class. All five of them successfully helped others looking to work up a sweat.

Next, they headed back to the ranch for the Weigh In, where we found out who reached their goal.

Danni went first and dropped 10 lbs. and was given immunity. Jackson worked off 15 lbs. also getting immunity. Joe lost an impressive 17 lbs. and was given immunity. Jeff dropped a whopping 19 lbs. and also got immunity. Gina weighed in last and dropped 10 lbs. and was saved too.
