"THE BIGGEST LOSER"

"DOWN TO THE WIRE"

03/11/2013 (08:00PM - 10:01PM) (Monday) : It's down to the final five and the stakes have never been higher. This week, a red line will determine which contestant is going home, and a yellow line will determine which two players America will vote for to determine who the third finalist will be for season 14. But first, the contestants compete for a weigh-in advantage during a "put their weight back on" challenge, pulling all the weight they have lost up a mountain by sled, and then dropping weights incrementally representing how many pounds they lost each week. Kid participants Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny return to the ranch and see just how far they've come watching videos of their journeys alongside the trainers, and later get an update from child obesity expert and pediatrician Dr. Joanna Dolgoff on their great progress. The adult contestants also watch emotional highlights of their weight loss journeys and get impressive health updates from Dr. H. Then it's time for the last weigh-in on the ranch, determining who is sent home and who the final four players are for season 14. Alison Sweeney hosts the series, and trainers Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince also star.

DESCRIPTION:
(from NBC's press release, September 2013) Fifteen inspiring contestants - including the show's first celebrity player, Ruben Studdard, an uplifting "Second Chances" theme and fun, new creative elements ignite season 15 of NBC's popular series "The Biggest Loser," premiering Tuesday, October 8 (8-9 p.m. ET). Alison Sweeney hosts the series featuring charismatic trainers Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince, who have helped contestants lose over 26,600 pounds collectively during 14 seasons of the motivational show. On the trainer side, new creative elements are being introduced this season that give Bob, Jillian and Dolvett more powerful roles. For the first time ever in the show's history, trainers sat in on casting sessions and helped select the new contestants. Also, the trainers will be empowered with a "trainer save" in season 15, allowing each one to save one eliminated contestant from going home. In addition, "The Biggest Loser" will start the season with one-hour telecasts on Tuesdays (8-9 p.m.). There may be selected two-hour telecasts as it moves closer to its Feb. 4 finale.
