Season 11 Biggest Loser winner Olivia Ward and her sister Hannah Curlee will soon be appearing on a new CW talk show, Dr. Drew’s Lifechangers. Premiering on September 19, the daytime talk show will be hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky, a board certified internist and relationship expert. The show will cover a range of physical and mental health topics, including weight loss.
Right now, the show is looking for New York area families who want to lose weight together. Hannah and Olivia will join with a registered dietician, a fitness trainer and Dr. Drew to help one family lose weight together. “We’re going to be there from the beginning, listening, teaching, and going along for their journey step by step,” Olivia told DietsInReview. “We’ll act as mentors in the realms of fitness and health, but we’ll most importantly be there for the family as confidants.”
Hannah and Olivia can certainly empathize with anyone who wants to lose weight. “Weight loss is such an emotional and life changing process, sometimes people just need to know there’s someone they can talk to and consult for advice, that understands how hard it is, what they’re going through, and is on their team to help them succeed,” said Olivia.
Lifechangers will follow the family’s progress for a complete season, to show viewers practical ways to get healthy themselves. “Viewers will learn that they can lose weight/get fit too,” Added Hannah. “That’s also a message we try and convey daily through our Facebooks, Twitters and blog (MYFitspiration.com). A lot of time people get discouraged because they simply think, ‘I can’t,’ but we want America (and the world!) to change that mentality and realize that if we can do it, so can they! We also hope they’ll be inspired, because we’ve been given some great life blessings and we’re overjoyed to be able to pay those forward!”
