We have only one word to summarize Deni Hill and Jesse Wornum, the week eight eliminated contestants from Biggest Loser. Classy. Not only did they, along with Marci Crozier, gain weight, a combined 12 pounds, they owned up to it. And they didn’t do it to advance their positions in the game, they did it to save “the kids,” their own and those they adopted on the ranch.
In week eight, there was a double elimination. One contestant would immediately be sent home for losing the least amount of weight, or in Deni’s case, gaining the most. In our interview, Deni and Jesse confirm that they “did talk about it” with Marci and agreed they’d throw the weigh in. Deni says “we knew who was going home,” and Jesse says “the strategy played out.”
Listen now to hear about their strategy that protected everyone else in the house, and hear them each explain their at-home regimens.
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.
Jesse Wornum was eliminated from Biggest Loser in week eight, a premeditated move he made to protect the other young people on his team, as well as his son Arthur. In addition to the 52 pounds he lost on the ranch, he’s lost 17 more at home. Arthur is no longer taking medication, something he says “normal people” do. “I feel good!” he exclaims about his renewed health.
“What the ranch provides that you can’t get out here is total dedication to the cause,” says Jesse about his time on Biggest Loser, which is an isolated and secluded experience. It also provided an opportunity for the already close father and son to reconnect, a relationship he says is much stronger today.
