The Unknowns and Ranchers Trade Places in Biggest Loser Season 11 Episode 4 Recap

The ranch is still reeling from the twins’ 9-pound gain from last week’s weigh-in. As much as Don says he did not throw the weigh-in, no one seems to believe him, myself included. It is EXTREMELY difficult to put a number like that up and have it be “accidental.” (more…)

New Biggest Loser Trainers Cara and Brett Revealed in Biggest Loser Season 11 Week 3 Recap

Week three of Biggest Loser is when people on the show really start to “get it.” Everyone starts to figure out their workouts, their diets, and generally what is working for them. But we still don’t know what the deal is with these new trainers. They are finally revealed!

Mark competed during Biggest Loser season 10 and took home the at-home prize. He lost 213 pounds, for a total loss of 50.59%!

His story is similar to so many – he grew up in a loving home environment, but not necessarily a healthy one. He lead a very active life in his youth, but when he got to college, the activity stopped but the eating habits didn’t change. Nevertheless, Mark found himself sliding down the slippery slope toward obesity, and he weighed 421 pounds when he started his season. (more…)

Meet the Biggest Loser 10 Contestants

We’re just a few short weeks away from there premiere of Biggest Loser, beginning its 10th season September 21, 2010 on NBC. Already casting for season 11, it’s proof that this show is in the right place and right time as more and more Americans work to overcome the obesity epidemic that is plaguing young, old and everyone in between.

Each season the inspirational show, hosted once again by Alison Sweeney, takes overweight men and women and isolates them at the infamous Biggest Loser Ranch, located outside of Los Angeles, California. For several months (varying each season) contestants work side-by-side with esteemed trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper to lose weight, re-learn how to eat, and overcome the personal, emotional issues that have precluded them from living a healthy life before now.

While the Couples or Families versions of the show have become quite popular, pitting teams of two family members or friends against one another, season 10 goes back to the show’s roots with individuals competing against individuals.

For season 10, Biggest Loser is introducing the “pay it forward” theme – working to help these competing individuals as well as the communities from which they call home. The premiere episode shows trainers Bob and Jillian in seven hometowns for city-wide workouts. Amongst the crowd are three people vying for spots on the show, the two who finish the challenges first will become contestants.

Without further adieu, meet the 21-person line-up for season 10. Click in to each to see their complete bios. (more…)
