One of the most often heard questions surrounding the remarkable weight loss stories of the Biggest Loser contestants is, “Did they keep it off?”. There’s no doubt that weight management can be even more trying than the weight loss itself, but when you’ve come as far as these individuals, looking back isn’t typically an option.
In a rare look at the growing alumni of Biggest Loser, to answer that very question, NBC will be airing a two-hour special the day before Thanksgiving. “The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now?” will air Wednesday, November 25 at 8:00 p.m. EST and showcase more than 40 contestants who’ve weighed in on America’s most famous scale to see how their lives have changed and how they’re doing today. Some contestants will even receive surprise visits by the trainers who made it happen, Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper.
You’ll have to wait and be surprised to see who will make an appearance on the Where Are They Now special, but we can let you in on a few names who’ve gone down as show favorites.
- Ali Vincent, the first female Biggest Loser from season six, with mom Bette-Sue
