The last position in the final three on The Biggest Loser goes to the contestant who’s won over the viewers’ hearts. In season 11, America must choose between Irene Alvarado and Jay Jacobs, a tough choice. Sisters Olivia Ward and Hannah Curlee are safe after an impressive season of consistent weight loss.
Jay made a big comeback on the ranch after being eliminated in week seven. He’s proved his determination in the face of adversity. On the other hand, Irene lost her teammate and support system when her mother was eliminated in the very first week. She also struggled with self-esteem issues, but managed to work though her emotional challenges to become the first woman to lose over 100 pounds in this season. Will Irene make the cut for the first all-female finale? Or will Jay edge Irene out?

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.
