'The Biggest Loser' premiere: Former athletes fight for a return to their glory days

[This post contains details from The Biggest Loser episode that aired Sept. 11]

After Rachel Frederickson’s controversial victory last season, the producers are giving themselves a second chance with The Biggest Loser: Glory Days. All 20 contestants this year are former athletes, which theoretically should mean their minds and bodies are better suited for the intense regime expected of this competition. These former champions already know what it takes to be a winner but also understand the concept of limits and discipline, something Frederickson was criticized for lacking. Though it gets a little annoying how many times the trainers say it, this does have the potential to be the best season yet.

'Biggest Loser' winner slammed for being too thin

Has the newly crowned winner of The Biggest Loser lost too much?

Following last night’s finale of the weight-loss reality competition show, the resounding answer seems to be yes.

In last night’s big conclusion, in which contestant Rachel beat out fellow Losers Bobby and David for the title, the winner’s 105-pound frame seemed to immediately raise some eyebrows — including those of trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, based on this reaction shot captured by a viewer: READ FULL STORY

'American Idol' champ Ruben Studdard to compete on 'The Biggest Loser'

Have you ever seen a Velvet Teddy Bear with rock-hard abs? American Idol alum Ruben Studdard, who beat Clay Aiken back in 2003 to earn the season 2 crown, is moving on to a new reality competition: The Biggest Loser.

Studdard — nicknamed the Velvet Teddy Bear for his cuddly physique and silky-smooth vocals — is ready to change that image in the name of health.

“I’ve never had an issue with my weight,” Studdard, 35, told People. “[But] my family has a history of high blood pressure, diabetes, heart-related issues — things I didn’t have to deal with yet because I’m young. But I don’t want to be worried at 40, and if I don’t fix things now, I will be.”

Jillian Michaels returns to 'Biggest Loser'

Jillian Michaels is returning to The Biggest Loser after a two-year absence, and the show’s fourteenth season will also feature young teens for the first time ever. Kids ages 13-17 are getting the chance to shed pounds — though they won’t be competing for the titular prize.

NBC announced today that Michaels will be back when Loser returns in January, with a few additional twists. The biggest one: Adult contestants will be split into three teams, each of which will also feature one overweight teenage participant. The teens will compete with and contribute to their teams, but they won’t be eligible for elimination. Each unit will be overseen by one of three trainers: Bob Harper, Dolvett Quince, and Michaels.

“As a former overweight teen, I know firsthand how dramatically weight issues can affect every aspect of a child’s life,” Michaels said in a statement. “Having recently become a mother of two, I am more passionate than ever about helping empower children and families with the information and resources they need to live a healthier life.”
