One of the favorite episodes of each season of “The Biggest Loser” is the makeover episode, and this season the show has amped it up with a very special guest — First Lady Michelle Obama. Obama guest stars in a two-part celebration that jets the contestants away to the White House to reunite with their family members, and take part in the show’s first-ever White House workout.
The episode will air as two, one-hour episodes on Tuesday, April 3 and Tuesday, April 10.
In part one, the makeover begins with fashion expert Jeannie Mai helping each contestant find stylish new clothes to flatter their slimmer selves. But first she shares a very big surprise — a special video message from the First Lady, a longtime advocate for health and fitness, inviting the contestants to come to the White House.
After picking out their new clothing, they visit the salon of celebrity stylist Ken Paves, where he creates new looks for them and Clairol’s Creative Director, Marcy Cona, colors their hair before the players head to Washington, D.C. There, at the White House, family members are waiting to surprise them and see their amazing transformations in heartwarming, emotional reunions before they meet the First Lady.
In part two of the makeover episode, the contestants get to meet Obama, whose Let’s Move! initiative focuses on solving the problem of childhood obesity. The First Lady talks to the contestants about how adult behavior impacts kid behavior, congratulates the contestants on being good examples of health and fitness, and visits with each player and their family members.
Then it’s time for a workout they’ll never forget as trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince lead the First Lady, the contestants and their families through “The Biggest Loser’s” first ever White House workout.
