Description

"The Biggest Loser" returns with a bang for season 13 when the contestants arrive at the ranch and get one of the biggest surprises ever in the series’ history. They arrive in teams of two – including mother/daughter, father/son, brother/sister and husband/wife, all eager to change their lives together. But they’re shocked to discover that they will not only be split up – they will also be competing against the person they came with. They’ll be pushed out of their comfort zones in a way they have never been before – and one team won’t even make it on to the ranch -- as the season of “No Excuses” begins. All of the contestants have the same goal: losing weight and getting healthy. But they all have different excuses for why they never lost the weight before, ranging from being too busy, not knowing how to eat right, being emotional eaters, knowing they could always start a weight loss program “tomorrow,” and more. So the season of “no partners” will also be a season of “no excuses” – as week in and week out, all the typical reasons for not getting in shape will be addressed. The contestants will hit the ground running with a three-part challenge as soon as they arrive. While 18 of the 20 contestants come to the ranch with loved ones, two will initially be paired as strangers. Following the initial challenge, each of the pairs will be divided into two new competing groups of individual players who will be trained by either Bob Harper or Dolvett Quince, both fiercely competitive and determined to whip their contestants into shape, and deliver the season’s $250,000 grand prize winner. Hosted by Alison Sweeney, “The Biggest Loser” will feature new contestants that include Nancy Rajala, who has 13 children and 55 grandchildren and didn’t gain weight until she became a widow at 52, Kim Nielsen, a former professional wrestler and single mother of three whose career ended when she broke her back in a wrestling match, and Roy Pickler, a Santa Claus and scout leader who wants to get in shape so he can continue taking scout troops on adventures as he has for almost 25 years. Also competing this season will be former Junior Olympic weight lifter Emily Joy, music producer Adrian Dortch, who has been a background vocalist for artists like Seal and David Foster, Ben Shuh, a father of nine children with a 10th on the way, and Cassandra Sturos, whose weight has held her back from pursuing her dream to move to New York and be a writer.

Finale

Where is the finale episode?

...Is it just me?

My goodness. Conda is just an awful poisonous disgusting person. I can't believe she has a child in her care.

But really, as a white person who didn't grow up in the United States yet has lived there for many years now, does anyone else see the issue with the only two black contestants being obviously engineered by the producers of the show into this situation which was designed to put them in conflict with a bunch of white people. I mean....
I can understand that on reality shows they do these things to create drama, and this may in fact have exceeded their expectations in that regard, but I think the way they allowed it to develop was sloppy and insensitive. It can't help but leave this viewer with very uncomfortable questions about the real dynamics which might have been at play. As they say in politics, the optics were not good, whatever was actually going on behind the scenes. It also makes me ask, in a country where black people combat obesity in numbers which are disproportionate to their percentage of the population, due to many environmental factors; how in the heck are there not more black people on the show?! That kind of thing does not usually bother me, in fact I can't recall its having ever bothering me in the past, but in this case it seems a little blatant. I've watched many seasons of the Biggest Loser and I've always felt a certain funny feeling about the demographics. As a casting director you need to find people who won't exemplify negative racial stereotypes, on ALL sides, and in fact I think that that's been somewhat part of the problem in other seasons. When you're choosing contestants a lot of the time you can tell who is going to be liked by the viewers and who will do well with the sociopolitical dynamics they'll be facing on the show, and while it's not always true by any means, in previous seasons which I can recall the one or two black people present more often than not end up being on the outs. This is not rocket science people. Be aware of what you're doing and presenting to the nation. We all know these shows are somewhat engineered, so what I'm wondering about is what they are trying to achieve given the results we've seen over the years. But to be kind, maybe they're just not good at their jobs.

I like the Biggest Loser, but I don't like it when negativity and drama become the focus. Even the competitive dynamic they have going between Bob and Dolvett this season is a little too much and good be friendlier, in my opinion.
