Woooo Hooooo! Thanks to my team, I have made it to Week 3! Thanks guys!
We start out by meeting Alison Sweeney in what looks like a Chuck E. Cheese's ... but with more candy. She informs us that we have our first pop challenge. This season of The Biggest Loser, we have made it our mission to help fight childhood obesity. But to fight something, you need to understand it. In this challenge, we will be tested on our knowledge of childhood obesity.
She just couldn't stay away. A year and a half after leaving The Biggest Loser to start a family, Jillian Michaels, 38, returns to the ranch to help fellow trainers Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince whip Season 14's contestants into the best shape of their lives. But if you think becoming a mother has made Michaels warm and cuddly, you're mistaken. Judging by her still impressive death stare, only a true loser would dare say she's gone soft...
Jillian Michaels is returning to The Biggest Loser next year — and she's got her eye trained on childhood obesity.
Michaels, who left the reality weight-loss competition show in 2011 after 11 seasons, will return for Season 14, which will premiere in January, NBC announced Tuesday. And, in a new twist, the show will feature child contestants (ages 13 to 17) for the first time, in addition to adults.
Week 16 certainly began like nothing we've ever seen or experienced before in the history of the show. The contestants all threatened to leave the ranch! Apparently they heard the past players of the season would get to compete for one slot in the finale. The remaining contestants thought that it wasn't fair to them and wanted to leave. After several discussions between the lawyer, producers, Bob and myself, Jeremy, Conda, and Kim decided to stay. Buddy and Mark left which was really disappointing to me.
The Biggest Loser has all the elements of a covert operation: contestants train at a secret location under close supervision until they're lean, mean machines. The only thing missing has been Secret Service — until now. For the Season 13 makeover episode — split into two parts, airing tonight and next Tuesday, April 10 — the competitors aren't just rewarded with new haircuts, snazzy clothes and a chance to see their families: they also get to visit Michelle Obama at the White House.
