Whatever happened to your favorite Biggest Loser contestants? Well, wonder no more as this Thanksgiving Biggest Loser will air a two-hour special taking in to the private lives of many of the show’s alumni. More than 30 contestants will appear on “Where Are They Now” to show you how their weight loss has changed their lives and how they look today.
Growing as popular for its love stories as it has for its weight loss success stories, you’ll get to watch the romantic proposal of season 9′s Sam and Stephanie, who recently visited the brand new Biggest Loser Resort in Malibu with Daris George. Not only that, but get access to the recent Lake Tahoe wedding of season 5 at-home winner Bernie Salazar to Jennifer, the cousin of his teammate Brittany Aberle.
Week five of Biggest Loser nine is shaping up to possibly be the most intense episode yet this season. As two teams return to the ranch to vie for a chance to stay, another contestant is in an emergency situation and we’re teased that he will be going home permanently. Hearts will be pounding inside and out of the gym this week.
If you’re a fan of the show, there’s even more reason to tune-in to Biggest Loser this week. For the first time in the nearly ten-season history of the show, a former contestant is working behind the scenes to actually create this episode.
A member of season four’s remarkable black team, Hollie Self, who continues to eat, breathe and live this healthy, active lifestyle two years later, is a story editor and played a key role in producing this week’s episode. Hollie answered a few questions about her role with Biggest Loser, and she’ll return Wednesday in an exclusive video for DietsInReview.com to tell us about some of the behind the scenes action that went in to making this episode.
Biggest Loser season 8 came to a close last night and Danny Cahill, a married father of two from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, walked away its newest champion. When Danny began his journey at Biggest Loser he weighed in at 442 pounds, one of this season’s heaviest contestants. When he punched through the paper image of his old self, he emerged a man unrecognizable. Not only has Danny lost a downright impressive amount of weight since May 2009, he’s done so in a manner in which he looks healthy. And even more shocking, after standing next to him, you can’t help but wonder where all that skin went.
Danny’s final weight was 191 pounds, a staggering 239-pound loss that equated to a 55.58 percent total loss of body weight. Very impressive.
Here is Danny’s interview live from finale with season four finalist, Hollie Self.
Now, Danny faces the hardest part of all, and we wish him all the luck as he continues his journey.
