BL9- week 16- Hair IS Important

We have made it to makeover week! WOO HOO! Thanks to Yahoo TV where I found all the great before and after photos!

Ali announces that the Losers will each get $1,000 in cash for clothes shopping and Jonathan Antin from Blow Out and Shear Genius will be doing their hair. NO TIM GUNN. I was totally bummed out. Jonathan gets on my nerves- so much crying!

The shopping was both exciting and sad to watch. Sunshine was almost too small for the clothes in the store she was shopping at, and Mike had to shop by himself at a plus size store. Shopping is always a mixed bag of emotions anyway. . .just imagine having to do it on national television!

Then it was time for the big reveal. Each contestant goes into 360 degree mirror (very What Not to Wear) to check out their hard work, and then they are greeted by friends or family that have been spying on them through the two way glass.

Sunshine looks like Beyonce! If O'Neal likes it maybe he'll put a ring on it.

Ashley is a hybrid Olivia Newton John in Grease and Dolly Parton. . .

Koli looks like an evil computer mastermind.

Sam seems a little under dressed. . .I'm sure the ladies don't mind.

Daris is a Jack Osbourne body double. He needs to borrow Koli's glasses.

HHEEYYY! Mike looks sassy!
It's a cool hip final six! They congregate in a harem to watch Ashanti in concert. ASHANTI? When was the last time she did anything? No offense, Ashanti. I thought maybe NBC would chose someone more relevant like Hanson or Smashmouth. . .
Then it's challenge time! All Loser's must climb the ladder to heaven over a swimming pool. First one in is a rotten egg, gaining a 1 pound disadvantage. Last one standing gets a 1 pound advantage. Ashley falls in after 3 minutes. Koli wins after 2 hours and 30 minutes.
At the Last Chance Workout Bob has to pump up a shaky Daris who is starting to lose faith in himself. And we see Ashley fall off the treadmill, and then Daris ALSO falls off the treadmill. Then the trainer tip is Jillian telling people to not run on the treadmill at speeds that may cause you to fall off. Classic.
Koli: 259 lbs to 244 lbs- 15 lbs lost
Mike: 343 lbs to 334 lbs- 9 lbs lost
Daris: 214 lbs to 205 lbs- 9 lbs lost
Sunshine: 187 lbs to 178 lbs- 9 lbs lost
Sam: 240 lbs to 238 lbs- 2 lbs lost
Ashley: 248 lbs to 238 lbs- 10 lbs lost
Mike and Sam are in the bottom two, and after a tied vote in the elimination room, Sam goes home. He moves to LA with his "at home prize", former contestant Stephanie, and everyone lives happily ever after. Sam also is the first contestant to ever reach his goal weight while on the ranch. No game play necessary.
Next episode cautionary tale and former contestant Erik comes back to the ranch. Listen hard, Koli. . .
