The sixth season of The Biggest Loser is coming to an end. On tonight’s season finale, all of the families from season six return for a special reunion, where they have a chance to weigh in one last time to show how much weight they’ve lost since leaving the show.
On last week’s episode, the final four of Ed, Heba, Vicky, and Michelle competed in one final challenge. At the final weigh-in, husband and wife Ed Brantley and Heba Salama of Raleigh, North Carolina from Harper’s blue team fell below the yellow line. America then voted in order to eliminate either Ed Brantley or Heba Salama and to select the third finalist in the game. Only one of the final three will win the grand prize of $250,000.
In addition to the revelation of the winner of The Biggest Loser, there will also be a special sneak preview of season 7, which is set to premiere on January 6, 2009. The Biggest Loser 6 season finale airs on Tuesday, December 16 starting at 8 PM ET on NBC.
The live finale will also include a special interactive component that will begin during the The Biggest Loser finale and end in Momma’s Boys. Momma’s Boys premieres right after The Biggest Loser finale. After being shown before/after pictures of three past season contestants from the Biggest Loser, viewers will be able to vote via text or online at www.nbc.com for which contestant they think has had the best transformation. The winner will be announced at the end of Momma’s Boys. Two at-home viewers, one on the east coast and one on the west coast, will also be randomly selected from those who voted to each receive $10,000.
