Behind the Scenes at Biggest Loser with Bernie Salazar
We asked our very own Bernie Salazar to take us behind the scenes at the Biggest Loser Ranch. With the sixth season just days away, we've all accumulated a few curiosities about what it's like on the other side of the camera, before the producers grab ahold of the tapes. Here are Bernie's answers to some of your Top 10 questions.
How much time do the contestants actually get to share with the trainers? Is it one hour a day just for the show or are they around during the in and outs of daily life at the Biggest Loser Ranch?
The trainers are constantly around, they are not there solely for shoot days. The amazing part of the whole Biggest Loser experience is that the trainers are there all the time, they truly take time to care for not only our physical well being but also our mental and emotional health as well.
I want to know how much of the show is scripted. Are there writers on the ranch that coach the contestants to help make good TV?
There were absoulutely no writers scripting anything! From what I observed there was no need to. There are hundreds of hours of the contestent's interactions caught on camera, what you see is pretty much what you get.
Do contestants receive any sort of payment or stipend for their time on Biggest Loser?
Contestants are provided with a stipend to assist with there personal finances, however this was a welcome surprise as most of us went on the show to gain back our health, not receive payment.
Check our blog tomorrow, Friday, 1PM EST for the rest of our Bernie interview.
