"What Not to Wear" is mixing it up on Friday (Aug. 23, 10:00 p.m. on TLC) with a first-time-ever behind the scenes episode. Given that the makeover candidate seems, at best, extremely reluctant to give up her all-camo wardrobe, this may have been an attempt to salvage a show that didn't end with a final reveal. It had to happen eventually, right? 

Viewers will get a glimpse at what goes into taping an episode of this long-running series, and will see what the producers and crew are saying behind the camera. This makeover also promises to be dramatic. I forecast tears!

Watch the clip from this week's episode of "What Not to Wear" below.

Liane Bonin Starr is an author, screenwriter and former writer for EW.com. Her byline has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Variety and a lot of other places. Her last book was called "a scandalously catty, guilty pleasure" by Jane magazine. Expect the same from Starr Raving.
