I missed last week's opening show but last night while channel surfing, I stumbled upon The Biggest Loser. I love this show so I'll definitely be tuning in Tuesday nights to watch it.
This time it's a family affair. Bob started out with four husband-and-wife teams and Jillian started out with four parent-and-child teams.
This season's 16 contestants range in age from 22 to 51.
"As we get older, it becomes much harder to lose weight, because the body's process tends to want to slow down," says Bob Harper, a fitness coach on the show. "The people on the show who were 40 or 50 had to work much harder than those 20-year-olds to get the results that they did."
But with a $250,000 prize for the winner at stake, everyone busted their butts. "When you're ready to make a change, there's nothing that will stop you," Harper stresses.
Last week, the Husband/Wife Green team was eliminated. Click here to see the video of where they are now. Since starting The Biggest Loser, Stacey has lost 46 pounds and her husband, Adam, has lost 54 pounds.
Last night, the Father/Son Gray team was eliminated. Click here to see the video of where they are now. Since starting The Biggest Loser, Tom Sr. has lost 65 pounds and his son, Tom Jr., has lost 81 pounds.
Tune in next Tuesday night to see the teams compete at the Grand Canyon.
