"THE BIGGEST LOSER"

"1512"

01/14/2014 (08:00PM - 10:00PM) (Tuesday) : CONTESTANTS TRAIN LIKE ATHLETES AT UTAH OLYMPIC PARK AND MEET OLYMPIANS APOLO OHNO, LOLO JONES AND MORE -- The contestants are off on the adventure of a lifetime, headed to Utah Olympic Park in Park City, Utah, where they'll train like champions and get to meet some incredible Olympic athletes. Dolvett introduces the players to Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who talks about his own "Second Chance" - this season's theme - and works out with the contestants inside the spectacular Olympic Oval arena. Then the contestants get to compete in the sport of curling, after an introduction to USA Curling team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm. The fun continues at the base of the bobsled track, where words of motivation from USA Bobsled Team members Lolo Jones and Jazmine Fenlator get the remaining seven players fired up about the fast-paced sport. But for this week's challenge, they won't be racing down the track. Instead, they will be running more than a mile up the bobsled track, a challenge made far more difficult by the elevation of over 7,000 feet. Also this week, Bob designs an Olympic-inspired workout that puts all the players to the test, and Jillian tries to help a contestant still struggling to embrace her self-worth. Travelling and being away from the ranch environment leaves many contestants worried about their weight loss this week. Those fears intensify at the weigh-in, where surprising results push two players below the yellow line and the other contestants must decide which player is going home. TV-PG L

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.
