Season 14 of 'The Biggest Loser' two-night premiere kicks off Sunday on NBC with a new twist. According to promo ads, "age doesn't matter and it's time to take a stand."
The official website reveals, "Jillian Michaels is on a big, bold mission: to tackle the childhood obesity epidemic head-on by featuring kid participants (ages 13-17) for the first time ever in addition to adult contestants. Michaels will join popular returning trainers and top fitness experts Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince. Season 14 will also feature special celebrity guest stars and additional surprises."
Contestants will be divided into three teams. Each group will be paired with at least one child who will compete with and contribute to their respective teams, though the children will not be eligible for elimination.
We love 'The Biggest Loser' and this season we are very excited that one of the contestants, high school special education assistant Lisa Rambo, happens to reside near me in the scenic St. Croix Valley town of Hudson, WI, a short drive from the Twin Cities of St. Paul-Minneapolis. We'll be rooting for her every step of the way starting with a Viewing Party tonight at Agave Kitchen.
She had this to say about this exciting new journey, "There has always been a strong, FIT girl deep inside me SCREAMING to get out....I have always shut her up with nachos!! I AM READY TO MEET HER!!....are You???"
Check it out beginning with a special Sunday night kickoff on NBC at 9/8c.
