[via press release from NBC]

NOV. 30 EPISODE OF NBC'S 'THE BIGGEST LOSER' HITS THE BEACH

BURBANK, Calif. -- November 29, 2004 -- This week's dramatic episode of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" on Tuesday, November 30 (in a special time period 9-10 p.m. ET) shows that losing weight can be a day at the beach. However, at the ranch, Blue Team Trainer Bob reaches a boiling after one contestant refuses to work out, while Red Team Trainer Jillian requires 500 pushups, 500 sit-ups, 500 squats and 500 lunges from her team, leaving it up to each teammate to determine the best method to accomplish this goal.

For the day's challenge, the teams meet host Caroline Rhea ("Sabrina, the Teenage Witch") at the beach for "lifeguard training," complete with running and water tasks. The teams must move weighted medicine balls down the beach, then grab life preservers and snake through a water course (on foot). Finally, the teams must return to the sand to stack their life preservers on a pole before sprinting to the finish line. The winning team will be treated to a complete makeover courtesy of Umberto's Salon in Beverly Hills. An added bonus is that the winning team chooses who from the Blue team will sit out the next weigh in.

Following the challenge, an elimination surprise divides one team.

Caroline Rhea hosts "The Biggest Loser," the first reality series in which everybody "loses" -- when severely overweight participants receive the opportunity to undergo a radical physical makeover without any kind of surgery. The new, unscripted and life-altering one-hour reality series is based on whomever loses the most...wins!

Losing isn't easy, as the 12 contestants from across the country face real life temptations while being provided with approved weight-loss skills and resources in an effort to help them transform their bodies, health -- and ultimately, their lives.

"Red Team" -- Lisa Andreone, Ryan Benson, Dave Fioravanti, Kelly Minner

"Blue Team" -- Maurice Walker, Kelly MacFarland, Andrea Baptiste, Gary Deckman

Week 6 Winning team chooses who from the Blue Team sit out the next weigh in.

Total combined weight lost to date by all contestants: 320 lbs.

"The Biggest Loser" is a production of Reveille, 25/7 Productions, 3 Ball Productions and NBC Universal Television Studio. Ben Silverman (NBC's "The Restaurant," "The Office: An American Workplace"), Dave Broome ("Jingle Ball Rock"), J.D. Roth ("NBC's "For Love or Money," "Endurance"), John Foy ("For Love or Money," "Endurance") and Todd A. Nelson ("For Love or Money," "Endurance") are the executive producers.
