UPDATE: Watch our interview with Dolvett Quince live from The Ranch during week one!
NBC’s The Biggest Loser is set to begin filming Season 12 this week in Southern California. Well known for helping contestants transform their lives with astronomical weight loss, the trainers are arguably the best part of the show. Many tune in each week to see with what Jillian, Bob, Cara and Brett will challenge the contestants. With the announcement that Jillian Michaels has left the show, rumors swirled as to who would fill the slot. Anna Kournikova was announced at the live finale of season 11, but there were rumors that there was at least one more trainer to be added.
Today, NBC announced that the final trainer will be Dolvett Quince. The founder of Atlanta’s Body Sculptor, Inc., he’s been the city’s go-to trainer for more than ten years. Recently, he toured with Justin Bieber for three months, creating a diet and fitness plan to keep the superstar in top physical condition.
From the NBC press release:
“I couldn’t be more excited about joining ‘The Biggest Loser’ as their newest trainer,” said Quince. “This amazing opportunity allows me to use my expertise to change lives one rep at a time, and encourage contestants — and viewers — to find strength beyond muscle.”
Quince has said that it was his upbringing that gave him his drive and strength to believe in himself. He wants to make a difference in the lives of others. He grew up in Connecticut’s foster care system with three siblings, who were all adopted together. He’s also the creator of Me and My Chair DVD and a spokesperson for the American Heart Association.
