Laura sure had the best hair makeover. Maybe Helen will make the change in baby steps.

Actually, Helen wouldn't let them cut much off her hair. She's too used to it being long, but I agree with other assessments - she would look better with a hair style that is more befitting her age. Maybe something to the shoulder? Her hair as it is now tends to cover her face.

SKINNYGAIL your summary is excellent. I really enjoyed reading it.

Kristin's should grow her hair longer so there are more options. The new color and style look better.

MAGA68 they did show a before the weight gain picture of Tara and it did look like a model's pose.

I did feel so sorry for Mike's brother saying he was the only big one now. Too bad when they Ron and Mike were home for a week they didn't get him started on his journey to better health.

Organicchick that might make you Ron's biggest fan LOL.

Helen looks good, but she likely would have appreciated a new hairdo.

For some reason I was a little disappointed in the makeovers, although I was very happy with Laura's and Kristin's hair. I think Ron really needs his beard, though, and I'm a little surprised that they left his hair so long -- pretty much untouched. I think that Mike would have looked even more dashing without the sweater vest. Kristin has such beautiful blue eyes that the makeup and stylist didn't really take full advantage of. Tara's eyes are getting more and more outstanding with every pound she loses.

I'm sorry, but it was pretty lame telling them that they were going to a Hollywood premiere and then they just sat in a theatre alone and watched a movie about themselves.

My life is irredeemably corrupt.

I loved Tara with makeup. Helen's makeup looked good too, but that hair of hers is still awful. Helen is clearly stuck in the 80's with that hair- too long, too layered, and just looks like dry straw. Someone should tell her she has aged a couple of decades.
I thought Laura looked fantastic with brown hair. Just fabulous.
And HIGH FIVES on that "skunk stripe" comment- I was wishing sooo much that they would undo that HIDEOUS, frightening, ghetto color job of Kristins. What was she ever thinking? Bravo for the new do.

I thought Mike, Felipe and Laura looked amazing. I loved her red hair. Mike looked like a real hunk. I don't think that an older woman looks good in long hair. I thought more could be done with Helen's. I don't think of this as negative, I think it's constructive criticism.

My makeover 2 cents:

Laura - The best makeover EVER on BL. My son insists she really looks like a model as opposed to Tara. She looked so cute! I loved her purple dress. I wonder why she didn't have a family member come to see her though.

Filipe - Looked sooooo handsome! His wife was stunned.

Mikey - Adorable face. He's going to have the girls lined up!

Tara - Same ole, same ole...her face is so pretty though. She needs to lose the GREEN. I would have liked to see her in black or white.

Helen - Liked the dress, but that's about it. Her eye make up was cool.

Ron - Whatever

Kristin - I love the darker hair and her black outfit looked so good on her. She really looked happy and full of hope.

I agree with Hate2BFat... Why do we need to make negative comments? If I were ever on the show I don't think I'd ever go to message boards! And that's sad.

Personally, I thought they all looked great. I didn't notice lumps and bumps (did notice Helen's legs... a longer dress would have looked better but probably not "in style" this season). Didn't like Ron getting rid of the beard. I actually thought it made him look older. lol Could be I'm just not used to it though...

Mike looked AMAZING and I cried too when he talked to his brother. What a great kid!!

Jillian surprised me. I don't think I've ever seen her get emotional... at least not crying. Mad, happy maybe... lol But never crying. She said she connected with one contestant. I wonder if it was Laura?

I'm almost ashamed to say it, because I dislike Ron the Manipulator so much. But, when he loses another 100 pounds, he'll be a dilf. I can't believe how much better he looks without that beard!

Agreed.
Tara - pretty much the same, should've picked pink (sick of green on her)
Helen - very nice - HAIR could have used a radical change!
Laura - beautiful hair - not so great in that dress
Ron - nice hair do - could have kept the mustache
Mike - cutie
Kristin - NO - black dress????? Needed color - maybe a blue dress to match her beautiful eyes. Hair - better but I think she should grow it longer.
Filipe - looked nice - can still lose about 50 pounds.
Cried for Laura.
Cried for Max.
UGH - the stress of it all.
They will be okay - I predict Tara to win.
I still wish Kristin would drop some huge numbers.

I wasn't thrilled with the makeovers. They certainly all looked great, I just wasn't impressed with some of the outfits. I got really tired of all the sappiness, especially Helen and her hubby (get a room!) and then Tara and her mom. I understand how Mike's brother is sad, etc., but don't think they needed to draw it all out like that. I dunno, I just got really bored with all the drama and tears.

I think Ron looks much younger and thinner without the beard. Filipe - goodness that boy needed a haircut and so did Mike. All the men looked great.

I was shocked that they changed Laura's hair color. I did not like it at all. The color of her dress seemed to clash with it too. I felt so bad for her, but think it was wise to send her home.

I think that everyone looked great...kinda shocked to see some of these comments with people judging and saying to many lumps and bumps or man the legs looked bad... Keep in mind there journey isn't over... I was so happy to see everyone... I think for them to be putting themselves out there like that week after week and then dressing up.. it is a huge deal... Just saying thought there would be all nice comments this time instead of rude ones...

I was glad they got rid of the blond streaks in Kristen's hair but I think a lighter color would have been more flattering. Not sure how I felt about the dress, though I realize since she's still a big girl, they had to cover it up.

Tara - agree. She's looking the best, especially in her face, which to me has gotten prettier with each weight loss. But the dress did show a bit too much lumps and bumps.

Helen looked good but the dress length was too short for her, just like Tara's.

I liked the change in hair color for Laura but again, I think a tad bit lighter might have been more flattering for her fair complexion.

I liked Ron better without the facial hair. It makes him look younger and not so menacing.

Mike - well, he's young. He's going to look good in just about anything. LOL

And so glad Felipe got a haircut! Much better!

The hair makeovers were the most successful of all. I liked how they didn't go overboard on the hair and makeup like they did last season (remember Vicki?) I found some interview videos with Tim Gunn and Bob Harper and put them on my episode recap:

I remember previous discussions about Kristen and her husband when the Losers got to go home. Anyone notice that they only hugged and no kisses (for someone who wants to start a family)? Helen's husband was all over her.

Helen cleaned up really well but I agree Laura had the most amazing makeover. No matter what our opinion of their dress, they were in the hands of the best and I bet the FELT like a million bucks.

I loved Tara's and especially Helen's dress style, but ideally I agree for a few pounds from now, and that length really needs slender legs in my opinion, but relatively speaking they made a wonderful impact.

Ok all in all I was disappointed with the makeovers

Tara - Gorgeous from the neck up but I hated the dress and thought her legs looked terrible in it

Helen - I agree with a previous poster - not much change

Laura - again I agree with previous poster - FANTASTIC. Hair, dress, she just looked great

Phillipe - eh? I don't think the outfit did him justice

Ron - ok. Liked seeing him in a suit and cleaned up but whatever

Kristen - loved the hair - hated the dress

Mike - Looked fabulous. I also had the kleenex out when he was with his brother Max. I loved what he said to him because it shows that he really understands that BL is there to help him learn to live the rest of his life, not just to win money and then go back to your old lifestyle.

I'd love to see BL do a Singles season with young kids from say 16-21 so Max would be eligible. Althou, I really think Mike is going to help him change his life which I think might be somewhat of a lead in for what we saw in the previews with Mike facing off with Ron.

Nothing tastes as good as thin feels.

I think Ron is the reflection of the contestants thoughts. I think the men looked better than the women. I just don't like that style unless a woman is quite slender. Showing all the lumps and bumps isn't all that flattering to me.

Okay, gotta comment on the makeovers first:

Tara - didn't change much
Helen - didn't change much
Kristin - Thank God the skunk stripes are gone! & the switched part looks good!
Laura - OMG! LOVING the red hair on her! What a change! & I think it really separated her from Tara

Filipe - That boy was in desparate need of a haircut
Mike - Also needed to find some scissors in the house, but he looked so amazing all dressed up with his new hair cut!
Ron - WEIRD without the beard!

Gotta say, I started crying when Max & Mike were talking about how he needs to make changes and that he needs to believe he can do it. I felt soo bad for him. To watch your dad & brother go away and come back completely different must make him feel so separated. I kinda hope that BL follows up on him as I would really like some progress notes on him after the show, too!

Laura - I feel so horrible for her. What an absolutely awful thing to happen. I wouldn't even know where to start with healing a stress fracture in the hip. I mean, walking? can she even swim because of the movement? Unfortunately, I agree that she did need to get into a rehabilitation program over an exercise program and be where she could be watched, but she must not have much for familial support. I mean, everyone else had family members come & she had her best friend? Not that I don't think that best friends are important, but in that situation, that seemed kinda strange to me. I'm glad she got the help she needed.

And Ron - will there ever be a deliberation that he doesn't need to run. If a horse's head ends up in anybody's bed, pretty sure we'll all know who to look at.

and I'm curious as all get out to see what goes down between Mike & his dad.

The end! :)
