‘The Biggest Loser’: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything about the popular weight loss competition reality show
Here is all you need to know about the upcoming reboot of 'the Biggest Loser'.
After a long hiatus, 'The Biggest Loser' is back with a bang! This popular weight-loss competition reality show managed to grip the audience with its simple yet interesting show format. 12 contestants who are battling their weight issues, come on the show, with the hopes of losing some weight. The show features a series of tasks and challenges designed to help the contestants lose weight, and become fit. The contestants are assigned a trainer, who oversees their progress and helps them achieve their goal.
The reboot of 'The Biggest Loser' is all set to hit the screens on Tuesday, January 28, at 9/8c only on USA Network.
The contestants are first weighed in when they enter the show, before splitting them into two teams, this weight serves as the baseline for the rest of the season. The twelve contestants are then divided into two teams- the red team and blue team, to perform various tasks and challenges designed to help them get fit and lose some pounds along the way. Each week the teams are weighed in to see who has lost more weight, and the team with the members who have lost very little weight are put at the risk of elimination. These eliminations go on until the size of the contestants has reduced to a small number when the groups are dissolved and the contestants compete individually for an attractive prize and the coveted 'The Biggest Loser' title.
USA Network's website describes the show as, "The Biggest Loser will feature a dynamic new team of experts determined to dramatically improve America's lifespans and waistlines. The revamped version of the iconic NBC hit competition series will feature men and women competing not only to lose weight, but also improve their overall wellbeing. Each episode will feature a team of experts including a trainer, chef and life coach, who will help guide the contestants as they embark on the biggest transformations of their lives."
