Show Summary

The biggest winner is "The Biggest Loser" in this compelling new weight-loss reality drama in which two celebrity fitness trainers join with top health experts to help overweight contestants transform their bodies, health and ultimately, their lives. Alison Sweeney ("Days of Our Lives") hosts the unscripted, two-hour series in which two competing teams follow comprehensive diet and exercise plans to undergo radical physical makeovers. Unique physical challenges, surprising alliances and irresistible temptations make the competition even tougher for the contestants, who ultimately have to decide which player gets eliminated each week. In the end, "The Biggest Loser" becomes the biggest winner, walking away with a healthier body - and $250,000. "The Biggest Loser" is a production of NBC Universal Television Studio, Reveille, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. Ben Silverman (NBC's "The Restaurant," "The Office (US)"), David Broome ("Jingle Ball Rock"), J.D. Roth ("NBC's "For Love or Money," "Endurance"), John Foy ("For Love or Money," "Endurance") and Todd A. Nelson ("For Love or Money," "Endurance") are the executive producers. After the first Biggest Loser was crowned in January of 2005, a second Biggest Loser began in September, pitting the men versus the women in the ultimate chance of losing weight and feeling good about yourself. With the success of the second season, a special edition version of six episodes started in January 2006, with a third season starting in March 2006.

    • A 50 season our last chance literally

      More would be with us we are moms and dads and grandpas
    • Doctor Advisors on The Biggest Loser are Quacks

      Just watched the Sports Athletes 2nd show and saw a "Doctor" threaten one of the contestants. The Quack "Brow-beats" and intimidates the poor Contestant to "try on a wheelchair because that's where you belong"!!!! GREAT COMPASSION, UNDERSTANDING, & ADVICE!!! The Biggest Loser has historically used the UCLA Medical Center for their Physiciansdoes this mean that UCLAMC has stooped to a new low? Maybe they should have the Contestants sit in at a Kidney Dialysis Center and have a Fistula put in, or watch a Leg-less Double Amputee Diabetic in pain from necrosis and try to get out of a wheelchair, or even visit the County Morgue and help the UCLA Doctors determine causes of death for Fat People! Wow, anything to make a dollar! Go Bruins!moreless
    • Boring

      I thought this season (15) was very boring and bland, more like a documentary. I got no inspiration at all, no new ideas to try. Although I don't like the contestants when they are immature and nasty to each other, I did like seeing the groups get to know each other, interact in the house, the challenges and temptations etc. The only bit I did like is that it was the person who lost the least % weight that was eliminated which is fairer, it would be more fair if it was the person from the whole group as opposed to a team. Competition between teams for advantages etc. is good but for weight loss everyone should be counted. I shall watch the first one of the next season and if it is the same I shall stop watching. My rating is for season 15.moreless
    • DramaFree!!!

      It has been so refreshing to go a whole season and not have to see any drama king or queens!!!! To tune in each week and see this years contestants truely care about each other and their journeys has helped keep me focused on my weight loss journey. I have lost 75lbs in the last year and a half and it has been a challenge doing it from my living room, but I know I have another 100lbs to go to my goal weight. So thank you Biggest Loser for being able to watch these amazing people on their journeys thus enabling me to continue on mine. Good luck to each and every one of you. Julie Whitcomb, .moreless
    • Glad to see someone try to help with the obesity problem in America

      I think we can all take an example from this show. It did a hard but decent job trying to get people back into shape after they let themselves go too much. If we all tried like the trainers had one, then the obesity problem here would not be so bad.
