(from ABC's press release, April 2015) The hit show "Extreme Weight Loss," a uniquely riveting, docu-series about weight loss that takes you on unprecedented 365-day journeys of courageous and resilient "super-obese" people, will premiere Season 5 on TUESDAY, MAY 26 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the ABC Television Network. Chris and Heidi Powell return as the transformation specialists and trainers for EWL, plus NBA greats Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Byron Scott and James Worthy will guest star in the episode. Other notable guest stars in Season 5 will include three-time Grammy Award winner Ne-Yo, two-time NBA champion Chris Bosh (Miami Heat), NFL star LeSean McCoy (previously with the Philadelphia Eagles/currently on the Buffalo Bills), swimming champion Amy Van Dyken (six Olympic Gold medals), soccer great Mia Hamm (two-time Women's World Cup champion + four-time Olympic Gold medal winner), actress and Autism advocator Holly Robinson Peete, and Mario Andretti (one of the most successful Americans in the history of auto racing). In each of the 10 stand-alone, two-hour episodes of EWL, the participants -- whose lives have become unmanageable because of their weight -- will undergo a transformation not only of their bodies, but of who they are as individuals. With the proper nourishment, exercise and guidance assured by EWL, they will be afforded a fresh perspective.
