"Sorry I'm choking up!" said a teary-eyed Gunn after seeing Bobby Saleem's stunned reaction to his dramatic makeover.

"[Bobby] is proud of himself and he should be. Talk about a second chance! It's nothing to take lightly."

Gunn and celebrity stylist Ken Paves both came on "The Biggest Loser" this week to give makeovers to the remaining contestants. Saleem has lost 135 pounds and looked dapper in his new, tailored wardrobe.

Tim was equally moved after seeing Rachel Frederickson's unbelievable transformation following her 105-pound weight loss. "Good heavens!" Gunn exclaimed. "I honestly didn't recognize you when you came out. I didn't know you had this underneath those sweats!"

Frederickson, who had slimmed down from 260 pounds to 155 pounds, was almost speechless upon seeing the new, improved Rachel.

"Wow! That's such a shock," she said. "It's taken me a six-year journey and a lot of pain and heartbreak and being critical of myself [to get here]."

In the end, a double elimination sent Tanya and Marie home, but only after they enjoyed their emotional makeovers.

"The Biggest Loser" airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC.
