Posted: October 7, 2013 Filed under: TV News
As previously reported back in August in this post, NBC’s hit show The Biggest Loser was not in the original fall lineup of shows. However, Loser fans unite! The show returns next Tuesday, October 15th at 8:00pm on NBC. Better late than never!
For the first time in “Biggest Loser” history, the trainers, Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince got to sit in on casting sessions and help pick the Season 15 contestants. They will also have a brand new “trainer save” at weigh-ins. Each of the three trainers will get to save one eliminated contestant along the way.
As was revealed earlier in the summer,”American Idol” Season 2 winner and Grammy nominee, Ruben Studdard, is getting his second chance at reality competition show fame — and a new lease on life — as the first ever celebrity contestant on “The Biggest Loser.”
Other contestants include Olympic weight lifter Holley Mangold, who hopes the show will help whip her into fighting shape for the 2016 Olympic games, and Rachel Frederickson, a former nationally ranked Olympic swimmer who gave up her career and scholarships to pursue a relationship that fell apart.
