The focus is on family, with eight teams of two, made up of four husband-and-wife teams and four parent-child teams. Bob Harper will lead the spouse teams and Jillian Michaels will lead the parents and adult children. For the first time ever, as we’ll see in the first episode, Bob and Jillian traveled to inform each team that they would be a part of The Biggest Loser. Once again, Alison Sweeney will host the show, which she says it’s her “job to be their biggest cheerleader!”
