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.
