Season Eleven of The Biggest Loser on NBC will premiere it’s latest couples edition on January 4, 2011 at 8 pm EST and in a recent press release NBC gives us a sneak peak of what we can expect to see. Here is what they shared “In the premiere, the contestants will compete in a challenge and then get to make a game-changing decision in the order in which they finished. Host Alison Sweeney will offer the eleven family and friend teams of two the unprecedented opportunity to choose whether to work out with trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels at the ranch â€“ or work out at a secret location with two unknown trainers, whose identities will initially remain a mystery. If the contestants choose the new trainers, whom they know nothing about, theyâ€™ll receive four weeks of immunity. If they choose to stay at the ranch and be trained by Bob and Jillian, theyâ€™re at risk of going home after just one week. What ensues is a riveting ride of intense emotions, surprising turns and â€œcanâ€™t missâ€ moments as the two groups fight their weight loss battles separately with two sets of trainers equally committed to giving these players a new lease on a healthier life.”
NBC also announced that some of the new contestants include Rulon Gardner, an Olympic gold medalist, Don and Dan Evans, identical twin policemen who started gaining weight when they joined the police force, Ken Andrews, a pastor who wants to spare his overweight son from the challenges he faced because of obesity, and Sarah Nitta, a woman who has lost pregnancies because of her weight and wants more than anything to be a mother. Viewers will also meet Arthur Wornum, this seasonâ€™s heaviest contestant at 507 lbs., Courtney Crozier, a student whose family owns a Dairy Queen and who was already inspired by â€œThe Biggest Loserâ€ to lose 112 lbs. on her own but wants to finish her weight loss journey on the show, and Olivia Ward, an opera singer who wants to look as good as she sounds so she can be cast in better roles professionally.
