15 Adult Contestants and Kid Participants Biingo, Sunny and Lindsay Reveal Their Combined Weight Loss of Over 1600 Pounds Plus, America's Vote For Third Finalist Will Be Revealed

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - March 14, 2013 -- Season 14 of "The Biggest Loser: Challenge America" comes to an exciting close as the contestants and kid participants reunite to show off their amazing transformations, and the season 14 winner is revealed in the must-see live finale airing Monday, March 18 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC. The participants will be revealing their combined weight loss of over 1600 pounds.

It's been an exciting season, from tackling child obesity with the introduction of kid participants for the first time ever on the series, and the return of trainer Jillian Michaels, to a challenge for America to kick off their own weight loss and wellness journey with tools and resources offered at www.biggestloser.com. Wild weekly challenge took the players from a sun-swept beach, digging through giant sand mounds for prize clues, to harrowing heights at the top of a seven-story building, where contestants anxiously balanced on planks while holding a bar representing part of their weight before heading all the way down to the ground. They confronted what scared them most during "face your fears" week, and near the end of the season, were treated to amazing makeovers by fashion guru Tim Gunn and Hollywood hair stylist Ken Paves before heading home for emotional reunions with loved ones.

Now it's time for the last weigh-in of the season. In the most recent episode that aired March 11, Danni Allen (Wheeling, IL) and Jeff Nichols (Monroe, MI) advanced as finalists, while Jackson Carter (Layton, UT) and Joe Ostaszewski (Williston, FL) fell below the yellow line at the last weigh-in at the ranch. America's vote at http://www.nbc.com/the-biggest-loser/vote/ will determine which player - Jackson or Joe - becomes the third finalist eligible to win the grand prize of $250,000, and that vote will be revealed early in the live finale on March 18. The contestant who does not win America's vote will still be eligible for the "at home" prize of $100,000.

The transformations of all of the contestants at finale will be profound, not just for the finalists and the eliminated players who continued to lose weight after leaving "The Biggest Loser" ranch, but also for many of the contestants' family members. One player and his family, including the family dog, have lost a total of more than 400 pounds! The finale will also spotlight some of the best home transformations from viewers who participated in Challenge America.

After the 12 eliminated contestants reveal their transformations and weigh in, the "at home," $100,000 prize winner will be announced. Then it's the moment viewers have been waiting for, when the three finalists weigh in one last time and one is revealed as this season's "Biggest Loser" and the winner of $250,000.

"The Biggest Loser: Challenge America" is a production of Shine America, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, Lisa Hennessy, Eden Gaha, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are the executive producers.
