Alison Sweeney (Days of our Lives) hosts the popular series, and trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels return to train 16 contestants eager to get their second chances at a new lease on life.

Last season's heaviest contestant and fan favorite Daniel will also return for a second chance to finish the weight loss journey he started and inspire a female social worker who has taken his place as the heaviest contestant in the history of "The Biggest Loser" weighing in at 476 lbs.

I love this show, not just for the entertainment value but also the motivation it has givin me in my weight loss. I watch the episodes on my iphone at the gym and it really keeps me going. I just wish the would make the first 5 seasons available. Maybe if enough people write in with interest they will come out with them. Ryan
I've been watching all season and have been happy with how prompt iTunes has been, but when it matters the most, big FAIL!!! Please fix for future seasons, very disappointing!!
I'm SO SO SO disappointed. I watch the almost the whole season on iTunes and then the big finale and 1) it's not part of my season pass...that really blows 2) You don't even have the finale up to watch even if I did have to pay more. What's the point of watching the whole season and then being left to hang on what happens in the end. I'm very disappointed
