NBC is finally unveiling the newest round of Biggest Loser contestants. Season 6, Biggest Loser: Families, begins Sept. 16. It’s shaping up to be one of the most emotional and inspiring seasons yet.
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!”

Parent/Child Team (lead by Jillian Michaels)
YELLOW Team: Jerry Skeabeck (Police sergeant), 51, and his daughter Coleen Skeabeck (Receptionist), 23, Cleveland, Ohio. Jerry has more life-threatening health issues than any contestant in the history of the show.
Executive Producer Mark Koops explained “our father and daughter team, it’s literally she’s desperate to have her father regain his health so he’s alive on her wedding day.”
Spouse Teams (lead by Bob Harper)
BROWN Team: Brady Vilcan (Pharmacist), 36, and Vicky Vilcan (Anesthetist), 37, Houma, Louisiana. Their goal is to get healthy so they set a good example for their children- which includes their overweight four-year-old daughter who already outweighs their seven-year-old son.
