Dolvett Quince in His Element as a Biggest Loser Trainer

Making his Biggest Loser debut on Season 12, Dolvett Quince has many years working as a trainer and put out his own line of DVDs. He’s the founder of Body Sculptor, Inc., in Atlanta. In this season of the show, he starts off working out with the black team, which is made up of the youngest contestants. However, he says we’ll have to tune in to find out if that gets shaken up or not.

We chat about what the show is like after Jillian, and how he got cast this season. Dolvett also talks about his approach to exercise, and the guilty pleasure he just can’t turn down. Although he’s worked with celebrities like Justin Bieber, Dolvett is not a typical star trainer. He has lots of experience working with obese clients, including someone very near to him. We think Dolvett is a great addition to the show, and can’t wait to see how this season of The Biggest Loser unfolds.

Biggest Loser Season 12′s Contestants Prepare for the Battle of the Ages

On September 20, fifteen new contestants will walk in to our lives on NBC’s Biggest Loser. It’s the twelfth season for one of TV’s most popular reality shows, and it promises to make us laugh, cry, yell, and cheer for these perfect strangers who will soon feel like our family.

Season 12 comes with a lot of change. There aren’t just 15 new faces to familiarize ourselves with, there are new trainers, too. Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quince replace the spot previously held by Jillian Michaels (now a co-host on The Doctors). And for those fans who haven’t heard, season 11 trainers Brett and Cara will not be back at the gym. That leaves veterans Alison Sweeney, the show’s host since season four, and Bob Harper, training since day one, to indoctrinate this group in to the Biggest Loser lifestyle and family.

This season includes eight men and seven women, competing as individuals, in a battle of the ages.

  • Oldest contestant: John Forger, 65
  • Youngest contestant: Courtney Rainville, 24
  • Average contestant age: 42.6

The 15 contestants will be divided in to three groups of five according to youngest, middle-age, and oldest.
