Tune in every week for the new episode..
The Biggest Loser returns tonight with Davina McCall, welcoming 14 overweight contestants who are desperate to change their lives, to a beautiful house in Leicestershire. In a bid to shed as much weight as they can –through rigorous exercise, healthy eating and sheer determination — the contestants will battle it out in the hope of becomingThe Biggest Loser 2012.
In this first episode, viewers meet the UK’s heaviest ever Biggest Loser contestant, as well as seeing oneteam member making a devastating discovery which leaves them alone to face the trials ahead.
Tonight’s series premiere is full of surprises for our seven brave pairs of contestants; they experience a major shock, facing their families and their fears in a hometown weigh-in; and there’s an even more shocking start to the competition as Davina sets them an opening challenge before they even get chance to unpack their bags – to run 5K to the Biggest Loser house.
This is the contestants’ first experience of the Biggest Loser trainers. Veteran Biggest Loser Trainer Richard Callender is this year joined by 2010 Personal Trainer of the Year, Charlotte Ord, and ex-Special Forces, Rob Edmond.
Each trainer brings their special motivational techniques and physical expertise to change the contestants’ lives for the better and help them achieve their short term aim, to stay in The Biggest Loser house for as long as possible.
But first things first, the contestants must make it to the house. The couple who arrive over the finish line first have immunity at this week’s while the couple who arrive last are automatically up for eliminationand will face the couple who have lost the least amount of weight at the end of the week.
It’s a rude awakening for the contestants and this is just the beginning — over the next eight weeks they must lose as much weight as possible to avoid falling below the yellow line and facing elimination in order to stand a chance of winning the £25,000 prize money and be crowned The Biggest Loser 2012.
