TWO NEW TRAINERS AND A COMPELLING NEW TWIST DELIVER A GAME-CHANGING SEASON LIKE NOTHING VIEWERS HAVE SEEN BEFORE ON NBC'S POPULAR SERIES "THE BIGGEST LOSER: COUPLES," PREMIERING TUESDAY, JANUARY 4, 8-10 P.M. ET, WITH TWENTY-TWO NEW CONTESTANTS

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 13, 2010 - NBC's popular series "The Biggest Loser" launches season eleven on Tuesday, January 4 (8-10 p.m. ET). But this time, there will be two new trainers and an engaging new twist that will change the game completely for the eleven teams of two coming to the "Biggest Loser" ranch hoping to transform their bodies, their health and their lives.

In the premiere, the contestants will compete in a challenge and then get to make a game-changing decision in the order in which they finished. Host Alison Sweeney will offer the eleven family and friend teams of two the unprecedented opportunity to choose whether to work out with trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels at the ranch - or work out at a secret location with two unknown trainers, whose identities will initially remain a mystery. If the contestants choose the new trainers, whom they know nothing about, they'll receive four weeks of immunity. If they choose to stay at the ranch and be trained by Bob and Jillian, they're at risk of going home after just one week. What ensues is a riveting ride of intense emotions, surprising turns and "can't miss" moments as the two groups fight their weight loss battles separately with two sets of trainers equally committed to giving these players a new lease on a healthier life.

The new contestants include Rulon Gardner, an Olympic gold medalist, Don and Dan Evans, identical twin policemen who started gaining weight when they joined the police force, Ken Andrews, a pastor who wants to spare his overweight son from the challenges he faced because of obesity, and Sarah Nitta, a woman who has lost pregnancies because of her weight and wants more than anything to be a mother. Viewers will also meet Arthur Wornum, this season's heaviest contestant at 507 lbs., Courtney Crozier, a student whose family owns a Dairy Queen and who was already inspired by "The Biggest Loser" to lose 112 lbs. on her own but wants to finish her weight loss journey on the show, and Olivia Ward, an opera singer who wants to look as good as she sounds so she can be cast in better roles professionally.
