The Biggest Loser
The Kauai adventure continues for the remaining five contestants, who tackle their fears head on this week. Dolvett encourages one player to push past his fear and join him rapelling down a waterfall, while Jessie takes another on a rope-swinging adventure in the jungle. Then it’s time for a fun, Hawaiian-style challenge, a Lacrosse-inspired obstacle course with coconuts that will reward the winner with a one-pound advantage on the scale. Meanwhile, at Comeback Canyon, two players also have to face their fears in a balancing challenge 25 feet up in the air before a weigh-in sends one player home for good. Then the contestants leave Kauai and head back to the ranch, where a red line at the weigh-in determines which player is eliminated.
The contestant have made it to the fan-favorite makeover week in an exciting episode that also brings game-changing surprises. Fashion expert Tim Gunn and celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves return to create more inspirational transformations, working their makeover magic on the final four ranch contestants as well as the two eliminated players at Comeback Canyon. After the ranch contestants get incredible new looks, they are reunited with their loved ones on a downtown rooftop overlooking Los Angeles. It’s a magical night that also features a surprise live performance from popular singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw, performing his hit solo, “Fire.” Meanwhile, the made-over Comeback Canyon contestants are treated to emotional reunions with their loved ones separately, 15 weeks after leaving home. And the stakes have never been higher at Comeback Canyon, because this week’s weigh-in winner will be joining trainer Bob Harper in his long-awaited, surprise return to the ranch, bringing his Comeback Canyon champ to join the competition. And that’s not the only surprise awaiting the contestants at this week’s weigh-in.
Trainer Bob Harper has finally returned to the ranch, and this week he reveals which player he is bringing back from Comeback Canyon to rejoin the competition. While the four other finalists are excited to see their friend, they are also more determined than ever to stay in the competition.
It’s the last week on the ranch for the final four contestants, and time to celebrate just how far they’ve come on their weight loss journeys. They’ll return to the Los Angeles Coliseum where their journey began for a challenge requiring them to put all of their lost weight back on and drop it incrementally at 16 stops as they did each week, while running up and down the Coliseum steps. The winner gets a cash prize plus a valuable weigh-in advantage when the stakes have never been higher. The finalists also watch emotional journey packages with their trainers, revisiting the memorable milestones of their time at the ranch. ‘Today’ show lifestyle and fitness correspondent Jenna Wolfe visits as guest trainer, leading the contestants while pregnant through an intense, ‘no excuses’ workout, while Bob Harper puts the other three trainers – Dolvett, Jennifer and Jessie – through an intense workout of his own. And season 15 contestant Ruben Studdard appears in a ‘Challenge America’ segment before the final weigh-in at the ranch reveals the three finalists of season 16 who will be competing for the grand prize of $250,000 and the title of ‘The Biggest Loser.’
In this must-see, exciting live finale, the 20 contestants from this season return for a special reunion and a chance to weigh in one last time – and show America how much weight they’ve all lost since beginning their weight-loss journeys. Those who have been eliminated will compete for the $100,000 “at home” prize. Then it’s the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season’s “Biggest Loser” and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000.
"The Biggest Loser," known for its incredible weight loss makeovers, will reveal an exciting makeover of its own when the popular series returns this season with new host Bob Harper, a new "Temptation" theme, an updated state-of-the-art gym, a new logo, fun format changes and a return to the popular team vs. team competition. Dolvett Quince and Jen Widerstrom return to train eight contestant teams of two, all with compelling stories. Seven teams (spouses, parent/adult child, siblings, relatives, best friends) will know each other, but one team will be two strangers - former "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant and the original "Survivor" winner, Richard Hatch, and "The Voice" season two semi-finalist Erin Willett.
This week the contestants must face their biggest temptation of all - food. Host Bob Harper meets them at a food court where they must rely on their newfound nutrition knowledge to win a trivia challenge about unhealthy food. The winning team gets to choose a player from the opposing team to sit out at the weigh in. Then the contestants meet Dr. Huizenga at a medical research facility for a sobering look at how the food choices people make can mean the difference between life and death.
Host Bob Harper greets contestants with the news that their challenge this week involves pulling food trucks. The team that wins gets a crash course in healthy cooking and eating from popular chef Lorena Garcia, while the losing team has to eat from the food trucks - a challenging task requiring them to resist temptation and choose wisely from the limited healthy food choices. Also this week, one trainer works to create better bonding and trust with their team while Bob surprises the contestants with a chance to win a weigh-in advantage before they step on the scale.
This week, contestants must confront a temptation that people face every day - digital distractions. Dolvett's red team and Jen's black team navigate an obstacle course filled with digital distractions during a challenge that brings the winning team a very difficult choice. They can either reconnect with the real world and enjoy coveted video chats with their loved ones back home, or get exclusive use of the gym for an entire week.
This week the teams are mixed and the contestants are forced to create new bonds. The new teams compete in a physical and mental challenge and the winning team gets a three-pound advantage at the weigh in. Trainers Jen Widerstrom and Dolvett Quince are shocked to discover their new teams during the first workout of the week, but they cut no corners in pushing their contestants. Host Bob Harper meets the contestants and trainers in the gym for a last-chance challenge that proves to be one of the most difficult yet.
Host Bob Harper hosts an auction to win some flashy and functional prizes. One lucky contestant gets a one-on-one workout with Harper himself. Coaches Jen Widerstrom and Dolvett Quince are challenged during the workouts as some of their teammates are out enjoying the luxuries they won during the temptation challenge. During the last chance challenge the teams battle out a difficult physical activity to win the one-pound advantage for the weigh in.
Extreme dieting, Survivor-style; tweens and up.
