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.
With a name like Sunshine, Biggest Loser contestant SunShine Hampton was destined to shine. And after her inspirational journey on the Biggest Loser season 9, Sunshine’s radiance became more brilliant with each pound she lost and each layer of herself that she peeled away.
Even though SunShine just missed the final four cut of the NBC reality series, she managed to win for herself a bigger prize than she had ever imagined.
“I won the biggest prize already. You can’t put a $100,000 price tag on my health and that is what I’ve gained from being on the Biggest Loser,” says SunShine just following her elimination from the Biggest Loser.
Listen here as SunShine discusses how she navigates through the daily challenges of keeping the weight off while at home, and how her Biggest Loser family still continues to fuel her with support and motivation despite her elimination.

Listen here as O’Neal talks about his natural camaraderie with the others and how his no-nonsense and open approach to life earned him the name “uncle,” by his fellow contestants.
