Breaking News: The Biggest Loser Cuts Two Of The Protesting Contestants

February 23, 2012 03:34 PM by Lisa Princ

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!

    I feel if they don’t like what is happening then go home and lose your weight and quit whining

    This is absolutely the most hateful, spoiled bunch of bitchy people I have ever seen on most any reality show. If they don’t have a come go Jesus meeting with these people I say let them all go and bring in people that DESERVE to be there. What a bunch of losers. Truly.

I would be glad to see the eliminated people come back before any of the current losers get a chance to win. They will never be successful and will always be fat and bitter.

    I am disgusted as most people are about this seasons contestants behavior. For us, my wife and me, this season of BL ended Tuesday.
    All this bullying, especially against Adrian and Daphne is simply disgusting and has nothing to do with the good old BL, that we watched for years and loved.
    Hopefully Conda is one of the fired contestants, but IMHO KIM deserves to go as well.
    The way she attacked Adrian directly and talked bad about him and his sister to the others doesn”t deserve any mercy.

    Shame on all you contestants this year – with the exception of Santa Claus and his wife.
    They behaved very decently in this group of childish, whining a…holes…

    I love the show but I have hated this season because of Conda. It is a shame that they have let her take over. I hope she was one of the people that were let go. I say quit whining or go home. You came to lose weight- get to it or get gone!

  6. trish p Says:

    Personally I think they should get rid of Conda, Kim, Mark, Megan, Cassandra & Jeremy! They are the MOST juvenile group I have seen on any show.

    Then they should bring back ALL the eliminated contestants to replace them.

    This is a total embarrassment to the Biggest Loser franchise – plain and simple.

  7. Alkamie Says:
    February 23rd, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Yes! Good, the lawyers had this contingency planned. I hope that the two were Kim (the prowrestler) and Mark. Kim was the biggest complainer for the same reason when the Aqua’s earned their way back. I bet that Conda gets to stick around – she has some sort of luck around her!!!

    I agree with the other posts, I am very disapointed in this season. Usually everone is very supportive of each other and they have people they can share experiences with that have had the same issues. It is supposed to inspire those at home. If I wanted to watch drama I could watch any other reality show.

  9. Cherie Says:

    I’m really hoping that Conda-minium was literally kicked out, preferably with someone’s boot up her backside, as well as her equally immature and nasty co-hort Kim. Mark is a very close runner-up. Crying like babies because they were switched to another group? Are you kidding me? This is by far the most immature and self-involved bunch of people that have ever appeared on BL. I no longer watch the whole program because their behavior has made me want to jump up and kick my TV. I thought Vicky the Vicious from a few seasons ago was an awful human being, but these people are givig her a run for her title of Horrible Human. Bob described them perfectly–nasty people–psychological bullies!!

    I have watched loyally every season of TBL. This season may do me in. Next yaer I hope the produces chose contestants that have character and integrity.

  11. Katie Says:
    February 23rd, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    This is one of the worst bunch of contestants EVER. CONDA is the modern day VICKI. EVEN Bob said that this bunch of people su ck and need an attitude adjustment. Cant wait to see how it all turns out.

  12. Kay D Says:
    February 23rd, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    I just hope Cassandra and Emily are still in the game and are not some of the people who walked off. I am curious as to who those people are. I guess we will find out soon enough.

  13. Sue Fra Says:
    February 23rd, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    I had this season on DVR and fast forwarded most of the show cuz the whining was too annoying. I’m giving it up altogether. Better luck choosing contestants next time. I’m done

    What a bunch of ungrateful contestants this season Conda is such a bbbbh and why is everyone following her lead?? I have followed bl every season but this season has sickened me. Adrian and Daphne didn`t stand a chance How dare they not get every opportunity as everyone else Not enjoying this season at all. all the contestants should be grateful for the opportunity or go home!!!

  15. Mary V Says:
    February 23rd, 2012 at 8:37 pm

    I totally agree. Conda has been a total pain in the butt this whole season. I can’t believe her teammates have kept her on. This is a very “entitled” group. They haven’t been as motivated/appreciative and certainly arent putting up the numbers like past contestants. It’s my favorite show but I’ve wanted to kick some *** this year too! Good riddance to the whiners!

  16. Nik Says:

    I miss Sunshine and Oneil…they we’re the most inspiring people. This whole season has been disappointing.

    I have no beef with Mark Jeremy Cassandra Chism Kimmie Meaghan Emily or others I may have left out but Gail was lazy, Nancy was sweet and I would like for her to have stayed, Chris has been petty hiding in her bathroom, Kim is just acting like her poop don’t stink, and Daphne and Conda just need to GO!!! Glad Adrian went quickly too!!!

  18. Mark Says:
    February 24th, 2012 at 12:35 am

    Please, Condo, go home! Your snivelling & whining are driving me crazy. What a BIG baby you are. I’d like to wipe those tears with sandpaper you little troublemaking brat.

  19. RAB Says:

    Every season there is at least one contestant that I really root for. Not this season!!! I thought that Heba and her idiot husband were bad! I blame the producers who cast this bunch of fat slugs. Watching a show about morbidly obese people get in shape, lose weight and save their lives is supposed to be inspiring and enjoyable to watch. This is about as much fun to watch as an autopsy. I also think that this “twist” of bringing past contestants back is a result of the poor character of these contestants. The producers reserve the right to do this every season, because they have to hedge their bets. Their main objective is to please the viewers. Loyal fans of this show are clearly tuning out, which caused the producers to act quickly to salvage this season. This is the problem with reality tv. One season of a rotten cast can poison the entire franchise. If the public doesn’t like the people cast on the show, then not only will they stop watching, but they will discontinue their membership to the Biggest Loser online program and they won’t purchase the DVD’s or other products. That is what makes this show so profitable for NBC. This group of totally repugnant contestants needs to go. Smart move by the producers and I’m glad to know that they listen at least partially to the viewers who ultimately pay the bills.

    These people except for a couple do not belong there. I always thought the whole idea was to come to the ranch, learn better eating habits, and get healthy and lose weight. Conda and Kim was a constant and major distration from this point. I can see I’m not alone in this according to the blogs I’ve read. Conda and Kim need to go. These two constantly throwing hissy fits because they don’t get their way, I pity their children if they are the role models they have to look up to. They are really teaching them some unhealthy life lessons. NOT!

  21. wanda Says:

    I think that you should got rid of all of them and brought in the ones that were voted off and let them finish the show
    That Conda, Kim and Mark got to be the worst i have sean on a show maybe if Conda was gone some of the voted off people would of been diffenert.

  22. Cara Stone Says:

    SOOOO glad to read these comments & see that it isn’t just ME! This is, by far, the WORST group of contestants I’ve seen on Biggest Loser since I started watching a few yrs ago! OMG! What a bunch of spiteful, bullying, 2-faced, back-stabbing whiners! I can’t take it! I too hope that Conda was the 1st one booted out the door! I can’t stand her! Usually by this point in the season, I have a favorite. Not so THIS season! Kick them ALL out & start over! I still can’t believe they threw the weigh-in! Seriously? They’ve completely lost sight of why they’re there in the 1st place! Stop all the petty bullsh*t & get down to the business of losing weight & getting healthy!!

  23. Wayne Fisher Says:

    It would be amazing if Condamn and her brother, Tassles, got the boot. Snake in the grass manipulator and cry baby because he had to switch trainers.

    Couple of the biggest REAL losers I’ve ever seen. Be glad if they’re gone.

  24. David Peavy Says:
    February 24th, 2012 at 10:35 am

    This years show has been the worst ever. I think they got nothing but a bunch of selfish people who do not care for what the show is all about. I think they need to get rid of all of them and bring back the ones that were sent home and be done with it. There are a lot of people that would do anything to be on this show and did not make it. Conda is a snobbish spoiled bitch and needs to just like her brother and Mark. They are the biggest ones causing problems.

  25. GK Says:
    February 24th, 2012 at 10:50 am

    Get rid of everyone except Conda. Then get all the crazy black wack jobs that were voted off Survivor for the last 10 years and lock them all up in the gym for 24 hrs.

  26. Syd Says:
    February 24th, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I can’t fathom why these people think they have RIGHTS playing a game when they should be concerned with how much weight they can lose and how healthy they can get. Clearly, with this evil group it is all about the money. I hope Conda goes but like someone said, she seems to luck out. Kim doesn’t deserve to be there. Mark is a big mouth. Jeremy is just as bad as his sister. This group is the worst bunch of losers I’ve seen yet. They make the Heba/Vicki group look like angels! It’s amazing the little amount of success most of them have had, too. Bob & Dolvett must be going crazy!

  27. Ann Pryor Says:

    The producers of this season’s Biggest Loser certainly got a lot of exercise lifting rocks to find this group of competitors. I have been a fan of Biggest Loser because I am inspired by the will of the contestants, their eagerness to learn from their trainers and doctors, and their reaching out to fellow contestants for help and support.

    A few seasons ago, Vicky and Heba nauseated me with their nasty business. I was so happy BL never found another contestant to match them.

    And then this season came along! Crikey! Where did these people come from? They are cruel and plotting and backstabbing. Conda is the worst person I have ever seen on television or in life. And the others lack character because they have chosen her as a leader. Mark? A minister? Really? He needs to get another job. Kim? What is her problem?

    Nasty, cruel, mean.

    Poor Adrian and Daphne. They came back to the ranch filled with hope, eager to get the job done. They had that attitude we all love to see in BL competitors. But they were beaten up by the evil three–Conda, Mark and Kim.

    I wish the producers would simply cancel this season with the statement that none of these contestants deserves to win 250 dollars. Then they could spend the interim looking for truly decent people who can make all of us want to achieve whatever goal we have.

    This has got to be the worst casting I’ve seen in a long time. I cannot believe how petty the majority of the cast has been and the overall lack of humility this group has. I’ve long watched the show to see people change for the better and save their own lives. The show has the chance to be inspiring and show the best side of people. Instead we’ve been treated to everything I hate about reality television. Manufactured drama, self-absorbed morons and people more concerned about the 15 minutes of fame than the rest of their lives.

    I am not home on Tuesday evening so I tape the show and catch it at another time. I’ve seen several and could not believe the immaturity of this seasons group – true it’s a game – but my gosh.

    The other evening I was watching the one when Adrian & Daphne were brought back – the people on the red team were the most obnoxious, immature and nastiest group ever. Yes, there have been others over the years, but this group wins the prize for being the worst. I would like to slap them all…

  30. Sharon Says:
    February 26th, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    I can see that I’m not the only one who has negative thoughts about this cast of people. I have thought that these are the meanest, nastiest group of contestants that I’ve ever seen on the BL. I tuned out when the brother and sister that returned were treated so shabbily. I was only watching half of the episodes anyway because I do not like most of the people on this season. Totally nasty folks! I hope they get rid of all of them and start over.

  31. Jane Says:

    cant stand the show anymore. The contestants are horrible people with the exception of a few. I used to find the show motivating and inspirational now its just a bunch of overweight snivellers whining. Sort of like a watching a teen program with fat kids bullying. Sad because they have the chance of a lifetime to make a positive change in their lives.

  32. vic Says:
    February 27th, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    confused about the timeing of all this. Hasn’t this been filmed already. Only a few episodes to go and I know they go home for at least a couple of weeks before finale so what is going on? If this is a publicity stunt it sucks.

  33. Rob Says:
    February 28th, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    At one time the biggest loser was one of the most inspirational shows on television. I have watched it faithfully and it even helped me lose over 50 lbs. Now I am afraid I have watched it for the last time this season. I have never seen any one person, “Conda” turn people so hatefull and evil in my life. It took her one week to turn the black team into as hatefull as the red.

    Adrian and Daphne were never given a chance on the show. I have never seen anyone treated so horrible in my life.

    “Shame on the contestants and SHAME on the Biggest Loser”

  34. Not very happy Says:
    February 28th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    This season is the biggest joke in the world. There is too much drama and not enough focused on losing weight. I have been watching the beginning of this week’s episode and it is the same old same old as has been there since this season began.

    Conda, Kim, Kimmie, Mark and Jeremy all need to be gone and gone soon. Then maybe the show might become something worth watching but at the moment FORGET IT.

    As I said before and I will say it again I will from here on in only be watching the last 15 minutes to hopefully see one of the above get the boot.

  35. Donna H. Says:
    February 29th, 2012 at 4:58 am

    I also have felt this was the worst season. I can’t believe that Conda was able to bully everyone and apparently dictate the show. The way Adrian and Daphne were treated was horrible. The others should have been leaders instead of picking on them because they didn’t like that they were back, which is typical of past seasons. Too many whiners. Not sure if I will watch another season – definitely not with contestants like this.

  36. bj Says:
    February 29th, 2012 at 8:14 am

    this last show was flimed in dec.conda and kim arot the only single mothers out there. contesants have been brought back and i think that the first female winner was actualy brought back.

    next weeks preview looked like bob was not happy.

  37. Dawn Says:
    February 29th, 2012 at 12:03 pm

    Jeez, for a bunch of fatso’s with “supposedly” low self-esteem and self-image issues, they sure do act like they are entitled to things like a movie start would! I’m not falling for the “poor fat person routine” … these people are a bunch of fakes, liars and cry-babies. I can’t stand any of them … especially the witch, Conda.

  38. Lisa Princ Says:
    February 29th, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    Vic, the show is about 7-8 weeks ahead of what we see each week. They will probably be done taping March for the May finale. Notice that they went home for 18 days this week? That is because they were actually home for the holidays. Hope that helps clear up the timeline for you :)
