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.
Ken Andrews grew up in Page, Arizona and attended Bethany University in Santa Cruz, California, where he earned his undergraduate degree. He went on to receive his master’s degree at Fuller Seminary, in Pasadena, where he lives today. Ken is married and has three children, including Austin, who is also a Biggest Loser contestant this season. Ken says he suffers from emotional eating. He has tried to combat his obesity with stomach stapling and a gastric bypass, but neither surgery turned out to be the long-term solution he needs.
