The contestants head to a store called M. Fredric. Sam, who is so freaking skinny and hot, is really happy to be shopping off the rack, and not in the 6XL big and tall store. The others feel the same way. Ashley tells us that she's never been able to wear clothes that she wanted to wear. She still has 100 pounds to lose, and so says that this is mid-journey for her. She's got décolletage galore in a black satin halter dress. Sunshine is delighted to realize that a size 12 is actually too big for her. This is the moment when all of her hard work pays off, she says. Daris tells us that he was a guy who wore big-ass t-shirts and bought jeans at some sort of weird Midwestern farm store that also sold tarps. He's overwhelmed. Daris has never shopped, because he couldn't shop for things that he liked. The only time he ever got nice things was when his mom and sister picked them out, and so it's cool to be able to come here and know that there's something for him. He's ready to learn the joys of retail therapy, and to "fit in" in the process. I still totally want to date Daris. I just think he's the cutest.
Mike, meanwhile, still has to shop at the big and tall store, even after losing 183 pounds. He says it's tough to be there by himself while everyone else is off bonding and having their Pretty Women dressing room montages. It's just Mike and the saleslady, who has to gently tell him that he needs to try on a size up. Mike is frustrated, and kind of depressed. It has to be really hard to lose a whole person worth of weight and still have so far to go. This is when you especially have to resist the urge to get a bucket of KFC.
And then, oh crap, it is Jonathan Antin after all. He calls himself the "go-to hair guy." It took remarkable restraint (or solid editing) for him not to add "and the second coming." He's ready to give these bitches some makeovers. Jonathan tells Sam that he's going to give him the classic penitentiary look, but the handsome version. Basically, he's going to turn Sam into a stereotype. Awesome. Jonathan picks through Mike's hair, and Mike starts to get excited about this whole makeover business. A lot of Mike's hair falls to the floor, and Jonathan jokes that pounds are being shed. Daris is also ready to shed some hair, and says that a new do will be a welcome change. Jonathan starts cutting Daris's flowing locks, and there's a lot coming off. Jonathan even thinks there might be enough for Locks of Love. I guess maybe if you straighten out that tight curl you'd get the requisite ten inches?
