It's time for one of the most eagerly anticipated events of 'The Biggest Loser' season: the fan favorite makeover episode.

Emmy Award-winning fashion expert Tim Gunn and one of Hollywood's hottest hairstylists, Ken Paves, return to the show to create inspirational transformations with the remaining seven contestants on a new episode airing Monday, Feb. 8 (9-11 p.m. ET), on NBC.

The long-awaited makeover episode kicks off with the players meeting host Bob Harper and special guest Gunn at a hip L.A. clothing boutique. Eager to shed the workout clothes they've been living for more than two months, the contestants meet one by one with Gunn, and are stunned to see what sizes they fit in now - and how incredible they look.

Then it's off to the salon of Paves, whose high-profile clients have included Jessica Simpson, David and Victoria Beckham, Eva Longoria and more. There, the contestants get stylish new hairdos to complete their makeovers. After getting brand-new looks from head to toe, the players are whisked away to enjoy heartwarming, emotional reunions with loved ones flown in to celebrate their big day.

Then it's time for a "Biggest Loser" first when Harper invites the family members to stay over at the ranch for one night, so that each contestant can choose one loved one to compete with them in a special "Last Chance Challenge." The winner gets two prizes, including an advantage on the scale. Then it's time to say goodbye to the loved ones before the seven weigh in. Afterward, one more player heads home, leaving the six finalists of season 17.
