Last week on NBC‘s The Biggest Loser, John Rhode walked away with $250,000 and the title of The Biggest Loser for season twelve. In just two short weeks, the show will return for it’s thirteenth season, and this time, the couples are in for a big surprise. Read on for more…
The Biggest Loser returns on January 3, 2012 for season 13, which will feature both Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince as the trainers. As the season for couples is back, the show has a big surprise in store for this season’s contestants. According to NBC, this season we can expect to see:
The contestants arrive at the ranch and get one of the biggest surprises ever in the series’ history. They arrive in teams of two – including mother/daughter, father/son, brother/sister and husband/wife, all eager to change their lives together. But they’re shocked to discover that they will not only be split up – they will also be competing against the person they came with. They’ll be pushed out of their comfort zones in a way they have never been before – and one team won’t even make it on to the ranch — as the season of “No Excuses” begins.
All of the contestants have the same goal: losing weight and getting healthy. But they all have different excuses for why they never lost the weight before, ranging from being too busy, not knowing how to eat right, being emotional eaters, knowing they could always start a weight loss program “tomorrow,” and more. So the season of “no partners” will also be a season of “no excuses” – as week in and week out, all the typical reasons for not getting in shape will be addressed.
The contestants will hit the ground running with a three-part challenge as soon as they arrive, and though 18 of the 20 contestants come to the ranch with loved ones, two will initially be paired as strangers. Once divided, the two groups of players will be trained by Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince, both fiercely competitive and determined to whip their contestants into shape, and deliver the season’s $250,000 grand prize winner.
