It was makeover week on The Biggest Loser Tuesday – the episode that every contestant dreams of reaching and one that moves me to tears every time.

By the time I saw the contestants this week, they had been with Tim Gunn and Ken Paves and they each looked stunning. Marie's hair change was genius! She looked so breathtaking and clearly her husband was shocked. I'm so glad she was willing to trust Ken's vision.

When Rachel walked out, my jaw literally dropped and I could have never dreamed on day one that she would look like this. Her smile lit up the night and to have her parents then tell her how great she looked was just such an incredible moment.

The Biggest Loser's Francelina Morillo and Jeff Nichols: We're 'Truly Blessed' to Have Each Other

Originally posted 10/03/2013 10:15AM

Jeff Nichols may have lost the title of Biggest Loser by one pound, but he gained a roommate, co-worker and girlfriend: fellow contestant Francelina Morillo.

"We literally spend 23 hours a day together," Nichols tells PEOPLE. "When one of us has to go out of town you would probably be disgusted with how much time we spend on the phone with each other. She really is my other half."

Nichols and Murillo began dating at the beginning of the year, moved in together in Chicago this past March and now work together for Biggest Loser RunWalk, a race series designed to challenge Americans into getting fit.

"There is no other couple who could spend this much time together and not kill each other," says Morillo. "Over this past year we have realized we are best friends and truly blessed to have each other."

And as long as the reality star is getting her sweat on in the Golden State, making good on that promise has been a walk in the park as the West Coast seems to tip the scales in Allen's favor.

Minaj commented on Glover's appearance after her amazing performance of "When I Was Your Man" by Bruno Mars. "I don't know if you lost weight, but baby girl, you look good," she said.
