Gerald, The Biggest Loser
When Jerry Hayes, 63, stepped onto the Biggest Loser campus, he was the oldest contestant in its seven-season history.

Kayla, Bad Girls Club
p>What was supposed to be a quiet evening with a couple housemates unfolded into a night of choke-holds, scratching and ultimately, Kayla's departure from The Bad Girls Club (Tuesdays, 10 pm/ET, Oxygen).
"I didn't want to fight her in the first place, and I kept telling her that," Kayla explained in regards to her fight with Amber over tipping a waitress on Tuesday's episode. "But she kept pushing the issue and it got to the point where I couldn't take it anymore, and it resulted to the point of her grabbing my neck and me leaving a million bruises."
But while Kayla broke the ever-feared house rule —if you lay a finger on your roommate, you're out — she wasn't booted by producers. Instead, she left on her own. ...

The truth is, however, that Natalia Livingston (who left the role of Nik's great love) is back on the ABC soap in a new role, as a mysterious young woman named Rebecca. Livingston talked to us about how much sweeter GH is the second time around.
