Biggest Loser Seeing Double Again for Season 6

February 11, 2008 04:10 PM by Jennifer_Brown

biggestloserlogo.jpgThe current season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser has had viewers seeing double — and loving every minute of it. In answer to fans’ response to this season’s “Couples” theme, Biggest Loser will be airing another “teams” season, Craig Plestis, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Development and Specials, NBC Entertainment announced today.

“The current ‘couples’ season of The Biggest Loser has been one of the best and most compelling so far in this important franchise,” said Plestis. “We look forward to continuing to inspire and entertain viewers with more remarkable and life-changing weight loss stories.”

Season 5 of Biggest Loser has enjoyed a mega-following despite an air-time opposite reality TV giant American Idol. Perhaps that’sin part because season 5 has introduced a new level offan participation with its Million Pound Matchup, which has encouraged fansto meet a nationwide challenge to lose a combinedone million pounds. Yet,regardless of season 5′s success, executive producer David Broom promises that season 6 will be the “most fun and inspirational season yet.”

Producers will be traveling to the fattest cities of America to cast for season 6, hoping to find couples who are willing to make a change for a healthier lifestyle and shape up themselves and their partners. A couple, defined Loser-style, can be a parent with adult child, siblings, cousins, best friends, or even, as we’ve seen this season, ex-husband and ex-wife.
