A WEEK OF BIG SURPRISES - INCLUDING THE RETURN OF ALL THE ELIMINATED CONTESTANTS - SHAKES THINGS UP FOR "THE BIGGEST LOSER: FAMILIES" ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (8-10 P.M. ET) ON NBC
Plus, Ali Vincent, Last Season's "Biggest Loser" Winner, Guest Stars!
UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - November 6, 2008 - The return of all the eliminated contestants - each hoping for a chance to get back in the game and possibly win the $250,000 grand prize - is just one of the surprises in store for contestants on NBC's "The Biggest Loser: Families," airing Tuesday, November 11 (8-10 p.m. ET).
This week's episode begins with host Alison Sweeney telling the contestants that they will start competing as individuals now instead of as teams. Then comes the surprise return of all the eliminated contestants, and the revelation that only one will return to the game, and that decision won't be determined by weight loss as in past seasons.
This week's challenge turns into a real nail-biter when contestants have to pick up the pace and stay one step ahead of the competition - literally. Then Ali Vincent, last season's "Biggest Loser" and first female winner, stops by for a pep talk, and brings along a special guest who also has a big surprise for all of the contestants.
After the weigh-in, the players get one last bit of unexpected news - a twist in how this week's elimination will go down. Another contestant is sent home after one player surprises all of the contestants with a shocking vote at elimination.
