Pompano Beach, FL, April 18, 2015 --( The countdown begins as the Mission Makeover series ends in only two more weeks with the Finale and Big Reveal. Make sure to tune in to the award-winning series Mission Makeover® Episode 11 on Monday, April 20, 2015 at 7:30 am (ET/PT) on Lifetime, as the Mission Makeover Core Four step it up with fun adventures that involve brains and brawn!

The Final Four ladies are ready to push it to the limit to shed those final pounds and inches. But the success of their journey is not just about those numbers, it’s about how they’ve changed in mind, body and spirit. To help the ladies on their quest to finish their mission, they put their brains and bodies to the test in fun ways -- with a food challenge and unique ways to get their fitness on.

Creating Sweet Substitutions -- Chef Nick Stellino representing Born Sweet™ Zing™ Stevia Sweetener, will send the ladies on a secret mission – to shop at the grocery store for ingredients to make one of their favorite desserts -- but in a smarter way! Their mission is to use Zing™ Baking Blend to create reduced calorie versions of sweet treats without sacrificing flavor. Zing™ Baking Blend combines stevia leaf extract and pure cane sugar, and is just 5 calories per serving! This unique blend bakes and browns just like sugar for perfectly golden cakes and cookies.

Brandi brings her sons to help whip up cheesecake filled strawberries, and Nikki shows how to make chocolate pudding, learning from Chef Nick that a half cup of Zing™ Baking Blend equals the sweetness of one cup of sugar, reducing calories! Zing™ Baking Blend is made with only real ingredients – nothing artificial, and offers a great sweetening option for those seeking help to achieve health and wellness goals.

On a Quest to Escape – Jamie Eason, Billy Beck III and The Mission Makeover ladies go to QQuest in South Beach where they discover their mission…to secure the big diamond. They’ll be locked in a room and rely on each other for their wit, problem solving skills and teamwork! Does this team have the unity to succeed? A room full of puzzles, a room full of personalities…do they have the grit to be great, solve the mystery in 60 minutes … and escape the room before it’s too late?

Take a Spin - Pole Dancing involves upper body strength and flexibility. The ladies along with Jamie Eason take a spin at Polestars with some pole dancing moves, and turn their workout upside down with aerial yoga! They also get a heart pounding jump class in their Rebound shoes for aerobic training and a lower body workout. Challenging different muscle groups and breaking away to have some fun can be a metabolic booster as well as a breather from the daily routine to keep you motivated on your journey.

The encore presentation of this show airs on Tuesday, April 21 at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT).
