StyleList has learned that the remaining six cast members of this season's "The Biggest Loser: Couples" are going to do just that during a high profile, celebrity-styled transformation for the show's highly anticipated May 4 makeover episode.
"Shear Genius" judge and Beverly Hills hairstylist Jonathan Antin, along with singer Ashanti, are taking on the duties of giving the final contestants the new you/new look treatment. In previous "Biggest Loser" season the makeover roles have gone to "Project Runway" mentor Tim Gunn and Tabatha Coffey of "Tabatha's Salon Takeover."
Antin will be in charge of new 'dos for the six remaining contestants, while Ashanti will motivate the contestants at their big "reveal" -- their reunions with family and friends after months on "losing" on the show's diet ranch.
The episode begins with each contestant receiving $1,000 for a shopping spree at their favorite store.
Then, it's on to Antin's chair for a new look.
The Beverly Hills hair stylist, who played the Simon Cowell role of cranky judge on "Shear Genius," seems to take a kinder, gentler role with the deserving slimmed-down contestants. After months of dealing with trainer Jillian Michaels, they certainly deserve a little spa day!
In the preview we saw of the upcoming episode, Antin is clearly relishing the role of transformation specialist.
He greets the contestants with open arms and has big plans for all. We're especially looking forward to the "penitentiary chic" he has in mind for one male contestant, and the new cuts and colors he's contemplating for some of the ladies.

"The Biggest Loser: Couples" airs on May 4 at 8/E on NBC.
