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.
Season 11 of the Biggest Loser has already generated a lot of buzz, thanks in part to crew members going on strike during the show’s filming. Happily, the disagreements were resolved, and we’re looking forward to the show’s premiere on January 4th at 8:00.
The biggest news of all, Jillian says this is her last season.
Season 11 is the fourth season of The Biggest Loser to feature couples, but like season 10, you can be sure there will be some new surprises. However, the tough-love trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper will still be pushing contestants to their limits, while the lovely Alison Sweeney will host.
The definition of “couples” on The Biggest Loser isn’t limited to those who are romantically involved, as contestants include a mother-daughter team and twin brothers. All of the 22 contestants will compete to lose weight and shape-up, facing down emotional baggage and ridding themselves of unhealthy habits.
