Yesterday, we learned that some of the contestants of NBC‘s The Biggest Loser threatened to quit the show, when they were told that some past contestants may be returning for a shot at the $250K prize. Today it was revealed that NBC and the show have cut two of the protesting contestants! More after the jump…
We have just learned that in light of all the recent events surrounding The Biggest Loser, NBC and the show have let two of the current contestants go. According to TMZ.com, the show has resumed production after the mass mutiny that took place earlier this week, but two of those involved were released from the show. No names were released or hints given as to who the cut contestants were, but sources say that the producers will tie the mutiny into the show as a story point.
If you are just catching the story now, yesterday we learned that several of the remaining contestants threatened to quit the show when learned of a possible twist. The twist included bringing back past contestants for a shot at the $250K, which the current contestants felt was unfair to them. The production was stopped temporarily, as the show and network decided how to handle the situation, but it’s back on now – minus two of the hot heads!
Maybe they should have checked their contracts before throwing tantrums? I mean, we are pretty sure that they signed something prior to the show, and honestly, The Biggest Loser has brought people back in the past…so, it’s not like this is something new. It makes us sick that someone who gets the opportunity of a lifetime could behave like that, especially when so many of us would love to be there simply for the health benefits.
Reality TV Magazine attempted to contact our sources for the show, but they declined to comment at this time. NBC has no comment either, but we’d like to give them a big kudos for not dealing with these petty people. Any bets that the two cut were Conda and Jeremy? We can only hope!
