It's also a season of firsts for the show, with the series' oldest players yet (63-year-old grandparents), youngest male contestant (18), heaviest female contestant (379 lbs.) and heaviest contestant ever in the history of the show (454 lbs.). Teams of two - including mother/daughter, father/son, sisters, best friends, grandparents, cousins, an engaged couple and former models - all come together hoping to transform their bodies, their health, and ultimately, their lives. In the season premiere, one contestant has a health scare and all the players are in for a shock when host Alison Sweeney surprises them with this season's big twist at the weigh-in.
