FASHION GURU TIM GUNN & CELEBRITY HAIRSTYLIST KEN PAVES GUEST STAR IN FAN FAVORITE MAKEOVER EPISODE OF NBC'S "THE BIGGEST LOSER" ON MONDAY, MARCH 4

Adult Contestants and Kid Participants Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny All Reveal Their Incredible New Looks At Home With Family and Friends for First Time Ever on the Series

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - February 28, 2013 - Fashion guru Tim Gunn and celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves create amazing transformations for the adults and kids in the eagerly-anticipated makeover episode of NBC's "The Biggest Loser: Challenge America," that will also featuring heartwarming homecoming reveals with the contestants' family and friends for the first time ever on the show. The must-see makeover episode airs Monday, March 4 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC.

It's down to the final five contestants - Danni Allen (Wheeling, IL), Jackson Carter (Layton, Utah), Gina McDonald (Hoover, Alabama), Jeff Nichols (Monroe, Michigan) and Joe Ostraszewski (Williston, Florida), and it's the episode that contestants and viewers look forward to every season. And this season, there's a twist. For the first time ever, all the contestants plus kid participants Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny will reveal their new makeover looks at home, surrounded by family and friends in heartwarming and emotional reunions. And this week, the players also get the promise of immunity at the next weigh-in if they each lose five percent of their body weight before the next weigh-in.

The makeover fun begins with fashion expert Tim Gunn, who works his magic helping the contestants pick out stylish new outfits to flatter their new slimmer selves. Then celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves, whose clients have included Jennifer Lopez, Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria, crafts incredible new looks for each player and teen, leading to amazing and dramatic transformations. After travelling home to show off their new looks and enjoy emotional reunions with loved ones, it's back to the task at hand for the contestants - losing five percent of their body weight while faced with all the temptations, distractions and realities of home that contributed to them being overweight in the first place.

While home, the players are also challenged to lead group workouts in their community, and a few former Biggest Losers - including season 11 winner Olivia Ward and season 11 player Marci Crozier - stop by to help. Later, after tearful goodbyes with loved ones, the final five return to the ranch and weigh in to see if they have all lost enough weight to keep everyone safe from elimination for one more week.

"The Biggest Loser: Challenge America" is a production of Shine America, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, Lisa Hennessy, Eden Gaha, Paul Franklin, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are the executive producers.
