Let’s all focus on Sunshine and O’Neal one last time so we can get it all out of our system. Hopefully.

Alison showed up while the contestants were eating Multi Grain Cheerios outside on the patio. Puh-lease. She announces that it’s makeover week and they are THRILLED. We are all thrilled. This is the best week of the season. They each get $1000 to go shopping.

The contestants go shopping by themselves. Usually Tim Gunn is there to help. Now they are all by themselves. I wonder if someone will show up. They are all going through some shock as they figure out how to dress. Daris, “I used to buy my jeans at the farm supply store, right by the tarps, there were my jeans.” Not anymore!!

Mike is still at a big and tall store. It’s so sad that he has to do that even after losing 183 pounds. Chin up Michael, we’re all proud of you!!

So I just got back from a potty break and Stephen’s updating me. “Hello my name is Anthony or John Antin and I’m the head judge on Bravo’s show blahblahblah.” So yeah. I think we’re also having a Locks of Love commercial. Hey, of all commercials, that’s a good one to have. I think I may be the only one in the world that actually likes Daris’ curls. And now they are gone.

Sunshine has her reveal first. She has Tyra hair. She looks great, minus the Tyra stuff. Her brothers showed up to see her. They are both so skinny.

Koli is next. It’s amazing to see his before pictures. Reveal. Soul patch. I’m not a fan of soul patches but okay. He’s wearing thick black glasses but it’s kind of cute. He look great.  He’s crying, I love that.

Now Ashley. She still has a ways to go but, wow, she looks so much better! She has great hair. Her sisters came and they screamed a lot and touched her collarbones. I love seeing her so excited.

Sam is up. They gave him a goatee. I liked it for a second until I thought he might pull out his gun and kill me. I’m not sure yet. Maybe if he keeps smiling. He’s normal sized, it’s nuts!

Daris’ turn. WHOA. He looks soooo different. Stephen hates it. I’m not sure about the hair yet, we’ll see how he does it on his own. He looks soooo great, so healthy. You can really see his smile now. He has a pair of 34 jeans! Thoroughly impressed.

Mikey! YAY! His hair looks great!! His facial hair is actually great. He looks fantastic. Fantastic. I think we need subtitles to understand him and his sisters freak out… or maybe my dog can decode it. His sister wants to change now. He has dimples!! Are these thoughts scattered enough??

The players take their guests to the “concert” that doesn’t appear to be a concert. Oh I guess it is. Ashanti is going to sing to them. AWKWARD. She has a microphone and there are only like 20 people there. This is like on your birthday when the whole room is singing happy birthday to you and you don’t know where to look or what to do. I do not like this. I like the clips between the singing, it’s so cool to see where they’ve come from. I think they showed the clip of Daris in the gym saying, “I will do everything to make you proud” about 17 times this season. Sam and Daris are officially to the point in their weight-loss where their “before” photos make them look swollen, like they were stung by a bee. Sunshine too. By the finale, they’ll all look like that.

(Wow. The first commercial during the commercial break is a perfume one with Keira Knightley. She is a freaking stick. Too skinny honey!)

Challenge time. There is a jacob’s ladder over the pool. Awesome. “You all made a splash at the makeovers.” Someone please work on Alison’s lines. CHEESE BALLS. The one who stays on the longest wins a one pound advantage, the first to fall in gets a one pound disadvantage.

Oh look, Daris’ hair is all curly again. Ashley is the first in the water after only 3 minutes. Ashley, you could do better. Mike is in second. They are at 45 minutes and Sunshine falls in. Now it’s between Sam, Koli, and Daris. Sam is done. Sheesh, they’ve been on for one hour! One hour, and Ashley lasted 3 minutes! Daris is daydreaming. My goodness, they must be bored. Daris apparently needs to pee. Two hours! Look what happens when you do something for yourself, Koli. You kick butt. Daris fell in at 2.5 hours. Man! Oh well, I’m proud of Koli. Rather him than Sam.

Eww, Bob called Daris Lyle Lovett. NOT A COMPLIMENT. Yeah, his hair is not okay. This is why I liked his long curly hair. With those tight curls, there’s no other option. They discussed the challenge and Daris shed a few tears. He knew he gave up. He knew he was capable of going on. So basically he still needs to work some mental things.

WHAT?? This Despicable Me commercial? Biggest Loser, you’ve hit an all-time low. Your expenses on the show can’t be SO high that you have to sell all this product placement and awkward advertising. UGH. Vomit.

Walgreens Athletic Tape. ENOUGH.

Last chance workout. Jillian focuses on Ashley because of her one pound disadvantage. Bob focuses on Daris. They need to talk this out. Bob had some words, Daris had some tears. It always makes me nervous when they jump over things. Bob makes him do those squat/sit things to show him what he’s capable of. BRUTAL. He did this after all the jumping and serious working out. “Jillian and I could not do this last chance workout.” Man alive, I don’t know how his legs weren’t shaking like Jello! And now he has to run. Beast. Sam, be scared. Whoa, he just flew off the treadmill, stood up and ran back on. Well done Daris! Now if only someone could figure out how to come put your hair back on!

Weigh in time! Look how skinny Alison is and she’s had two babies. What do you think about that, Jillian?

Koli- 15 – 6.18% That’s HUGE!
Mike – 9 – 2.62% Sounds good, but not great after Koli’s 15!
Daris – 9 – 4.21% He’s 205, 9 pounds is huge.
Sunshine – 9 – 4.81% How is this happening??
Sam – 2 – .83% Yikes. Expected. He’s got nothing left to lose. And he’s gaining muscle.
Ashley – 10 – 3.63% Well done, girl.

So Michael and Sam are below the yellow line. I’m REALLY hoping that they keep Michael. Sam is done. He can’t win, he can go home and be just fine. Michael still needs this for his pride. He needs a week or two with the trainers. Michael is all tears during his plea. I’m hoping these guys don’t start the gameplay now.

Koli voted for Michael. Sunshine voted for Michael because he’s a threat. Ashley voted for Sam. Daris voted for Sam. Which means a tie. Since Sam had the lowest percentage, he’s going home. Sad to see you go, Sam. I like you. You were a great competitor and a stand-up guy. But you’re okay. You’re ready to be home.

Sam gave a fantastic speech to Koli. What great guys. What if all families treated each other like that?? That would be refreshing.

372 to 236. He hit his goal weight on campus so he’s not trying to lose anymore weight. He moved to LA and lives with Stephanie. They look happy and healthy.

Next week: Michael has a meltdown because he’s still fat. An old contestant comes back to show how he’s gained all his weight back. And we see that the one person below the yellow line automatically goes home. Yikes!

    I was quite disappointed in Makeover week. It sort of seemed half-ass. I did think that Michael and Ashley looked the best. Daris’ hair was awful! I am still trying to get over Sam and Stephanie, eventhough I knew about it. She should thank her lucky stars for him. He could do soooo much better. Yuck!

  • 2. Lauren From Texas  |  May 5, 2010 at 8:43 am

    “Look how skinny Alison is and she’s had two babies. What do you think about that, Jillian?”

    I love that 🙂

    I really enjoyed this week! I want Daris to win. I will also accept Sunshine or Ashley. But I guess Koli or Michael too. I like that I like everyone!

  • 3. Karen  |  May 5, 2010 at 8:49 am

    I was not very excited about the make overs either, I liked the hair and makeup, but the clothes sucked, for gods sake, who dressed Koli, I thought he looked terrible, they could have done so much better.

    I am hoping that Ashley takes it all the way, she has a good chance, I hope she can pull it off.

    I was glad that they did not vote Michael off, I like Sam, but it would have not been right to keep some one who did not need to be there and send some one home who did.

    I am excited about Sam and Stephanie, I follow them on facebook and they seem to be fun and really in love, I hope it all works out for them.

    Daris’ hair cut makes me sad, and I am kind of glad Sam is gone. He was getting a little too high on himself always winning, and there are other’s that need to be there more than he.

    Go Mikey!! (ps, thank the good lord, they finally cut your hair)

  • 5. Clare  |  May 5, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I liked Koli’s look, geek-chic glasses and all. I don’t get what they did to Daris’ hair. Sam looks wayyy better without the facial hair, that needs to go.

    Sam’s comments about Stephanie made me want to meet someone, “I get to come home to my at-home prize every day” so cute.

    I like them all, and I’m rooting for them all! I want Michael to be able to shop in a regular store, that part was so sad when he was by himself.

  • 6. Megan  |  May 5, 2010 at 9:33 am

    I couldn’t wait to get on here this morning to see what you had to say about Daris’ hair!! I about died when he showed up to the ladder challenge. I liked the long curls too.

  • 7. Southern Gal  |  May 5, 2010 at 11:23 am

    I didn’t see any dramatic changes in makeover week other than the hair on Daris’s head. Wow. It’s so sad to see Eric with all that weight back on him. I guess we’ll see how it all goes down next week.

    How are you feeling?

  • 8. DebbieQ  |  May 5, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    “Look how skinny Alison is and she’s had two babies. What do you think about that, Jillian?”
    – LOL! We will see what Jillian says when her bio clock is ticking.

    Laughed at the Lyle Lovett comment but I have to say that I liked Daris’s hair much better when slicked back. And I agree that it was time for Sam to go home.

  • 9. Samantha  |  May 5, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Daris looked SO different in his makeover, and then I REALLY disapproved of his hair when he did it himself and it wasn’t slicked back! It looked better the old way.

  • 10. Stephany  |  May 5, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    UGH! Daris’ hair…just UGH! I’m so sad for him. His hair is just awful now.

    As much as I loved Sam in the beginning, he really started to annoy me. Although the finale isn’t too far away, Koli really needs to learn how to survive without him. And Sam was constantly saying how Koli was going to win this challenge or that to save him. Try saving yourself, Sam! But he is a hottie, I will admit!

    I’m really rooting for Daris, Ashley, and Mike. I love them all. I felt so bad when Mike was shopping!

    So sorry I missed commenting yesterday – but I’m so nerdy in fact I took notes while watching BL on Tuesday just so I could have a comment for Roots and Rings 🙂 Most of my notes where taken during the makeover reveal:

    1. What’s up with Sunshine’s brothers corn-row dreads… He looks REAL scary – maybe he should get a makeover…

    2. Do you watch American Idol? Koli looked exactly like Andrew Garcia

    3.Ashley – her hair resembled that of Farrah Fawcet in my opinion… really proud of her and her waist line but come one mr.hair-style-know-it-all – do something updated

    4. Sam – who knew he was with Stephanie – they are REALLY cute… but I was totally confused that he had a white momma…just sayin’

    5. Daris – I heart Daris – I wish I could run to Oklahoma find his cutie-pa-tootie ass and jump on him. I’m not a fan of the slicked back jerry curl (i mean really – come on) but he looks soooo goood!!! and his mom is precious – which means I’m officially rooting for Daris – but I guess I have been since the beginning

    6.Mike – OH MIKE – He looks soooo good too. I feel real sorry for him though that he still has like another person to loose. His break down next week made me tear up.

    **SIDENOTE – I totally missed Tim Gunn***
