Week 11 marked the final week on campus for the contestants and trainers! My first season on campus takes my breath away, my journey is a story all to itself, but we won't go there as of yet. Instead I'd love to take this opportunity to talk about each and every contestant on the show: The struggles of Antone, dealing with being a former athlete, and trying to find that guy again. The doubts overcome by Patrick and Courtney trying to find their inner strength while gaining outer strength. John, tackling food addiction and inner demons. Vinny facing his childhood, Bonnie making it 9 weeks, and how about Ramon, being diagnosed with diabetes and beating that, and each and every competitor wanting and fighting to be the Biggest Loser, while at the same time fighting to save their lives. This show helps people rediscover the person they have lost, and in some ways the person they have always wanted to be. I couldn't be more honored than to be a part of each of their transformations, as they have transformed me.
On this season of The Biggest Loser, dubbed "Battle of the Ages," two new trainers, tennis pro Anna Kournikova and fitness expert Dolvett Quince, join Bob Harper in changing the lives of 15 overweight contestants. We checked in with Quince, who has worked with celebs including Janet Jackson and Justin Bieber and will be blogging about the season for TVGuide.com.
