August 25, 2010 10:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


On September 21st,  The Biggest Loser returns to NBC for season 10, but it’s not going to be the same old weight loss competition you remember. In honor of the tenth season, The Biggest Loser is changing things up. Keep reading for more details on the new twists and surprises in store for season 10…

When The Biggest Loser returns to NBC on September 21st, the goal will still be the same: help contestants lose massive amounts of weight and learn to be healthy. However, in honor of the upcoming tenth season, there are going to be a few new twists and surprises in store for viewers and contestants. The new season will focus on “paying it forward” this year.

How exactly does The Biggest Loser plan on paying it forward? By traveling across the country to help overweight individuals achieve their weight-loss goals. That’s right…Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels, and Alison Sweeney are hitting the road to find this season’s candidates in seven U.S. cities. In the season premiere, Bob, Jillian, and Alison are traveling to Detroit, Los Angeles, Portland, Atlanta, Phoenix, Oklahoma City, and Boston to conduct city-wide fitness events and challenges for residents. According to a press release for the network, the three Biggest Loser stars will lead “community fitness challenges like a one-mile race or a 500 step-up competition.”

Each city’s fitness challenges will include three Biggest Loser hopefuls. The top two finishers in each city will earn their spot on the ranch and the chance to participate in the show. “The two candidates who complete their fitness challenge first win a spot at the Ranch,” the release says. “Those who don’t make it will get a chance to vie for a spot on the show in a later episode.”

The 21 hopefuls vying for a spot on the show include Montina, a backup singer for Beyonce, Patrick, a former college football player, Brendan, a special ed teacher, and Burgandy, a military wife and mother of five. Tune into the season premiere of The Biggest Loser on Tuesday, September 21st at 8pm on NBC!
