"THE BIGGEST LOSER 5"
01/01/2008 (08:00PM - 10:00PM) (Tuesday) : "They Got Fat Together, Can They Get Thin Together?" - An all-new twist shakes up the fifth season premiere of "The Biggest Loser," heightening the emotion and tension in the competition. For the first time ever in the history of the show, teams of two will compete against each other rather than individuals. Ten teams - including a mother and son, husband-and-wife, best friends, brothers and a divorced couple - have to pick their trainer, weigh in and compete in challenges together.
This week, the teams will have to pull a giant hot air balloon across a field, with the winner getting a coveted 2 lb. advantage at the first weigh in. Alison Sweeney is the host, and Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels also star as the trainers.
