NBC's "BIGGEST LOSER" PLAYERS PAY IT FORWARD NOV. 26 WITH THANKSGIVING CHALLENGE BENEFITING TORNADO VICTIMS IN MOORE, OK

Plus, Winning Team Gets an Unforgettable Holiday Dinner with Loved Ones at the Ranch

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 22, 2013 - It's a Thanksgiving to remember at "The Biggest Loser" ranch when the contestants pay it forward with a holiday challenge benefiting tornado victims in Moore, OK, and the winning team gets a very special holiday dinner with loved ones flown in to celebrate the special day. The heartwarming holiday episode of "The Biggest Loser" airs Tuesday, November 26 (8-9 p.m. ET) on NBC.

The holiday week kicks off with a special Thanksgiving challenge that will help those who haven't been as fortunate this year - the tornado victims of Moore, Oklahoma, where one player has a special connection. Eager to pay it forward, the contestants race to load boxes of Thanksgiving turkeys, cranberries, green beans and yams into trucks. The winning team is very thankful for their prize - a holiday dinner shared at the ranch with loved ones flown in for the celebration.

Emotional reunions follow as the victorious team, their trainer and their loved ones gather for a Thanksgiving feast and share what they are most grateful for. Also, one player gets encouragement from his trainer to talk to his family about a long-kept secret, and the show catches up with one of season 14's child ambassadors, Sunny, to see how she is doing today. Plus one contestant finds a special way to honor a loved one who is no longer here.

Later, it's time for the weigh-in, where there are no more "second chances" for players now that all three trainers have used their "trainer saves." Two players hit milestones, including being the first to lose 100 pounds at the ranch. Then it's time for the elimination, which leaves one trainer giving a very tearful and emotional farewell to one of their players before host Alison Sweeney delivers surprising news.

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