17 December 2010 10:45 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When season 11 of The Biggest Loser begins on NBC Jan. 4, Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper will still be pushing contestants during last-chance workouts, and they will be joined by two new trainers, a former Golden Gloves boxing champion and a martial arts expert from New York City. But as they come in, Michaels is ready to head out. "It's my last season," Michaels tells People. "The role I plan on taking is passing the baton. I don't want to step on anyone's toes. I remember when I was first starting and I didn't want anyone telling me what to do. »

Jillian Michaels: Biggest Loser "a gift" but "How many times can I scream last chance workout?"

15 December 2010 5:42 AM, PST | Reality Blurred | See recent Reality Blurred news »

The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is leaving the show after its 11th season, and while she calls the show "a gift," she said, "How many times can I scream last chance workout?" Meanwhile, Bob Harper promises he'll never leave "as long as there is a show" because "Every new group that comes in here consistently inspires me." Jillian's question about saying the same line over and over again is a good rhetorical question, and »

New 'Biggest Loser' Champ Gains $250,000

14 December 2010 8:20 PM, PST | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

Ada Wong, Patrick House and Alfredo "Frado" Dinten all shed major weight to reach the finals of "The Biggest Loser," but only one of them packed on $250,000 in grand-prize dough Tuesday night! At the end of the competition the scale was kindest to Patrick, a 28-year-old husband and father of two from Mississippi. "To win 'The Biggest Loser' means everything to me," he said. "My future now is as bright as it's ever been." He said he'd been given the opportunity to work for a program at a South Carolina school that helps overweight teens. Patrick arrived at "The Biggest Loser" ranch weighing 400 pounds. He dropped 181 to finish the competition at 219 pounds. "It's crazy to think that I let myself get that out of control," he said about his starting weight. "And I can tell you, I'm never going back to that."

Why Jillian's Leaving The Biggest Loser

13 December 2010 11:01 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

The Biggest Loser is introducing not one but two new trainers to take contestants through their dramatic weight-loss journey in Season 11, which begins January 4. The reason: Jillian Michaels is leaving the show after the May 2011 finale. The wannabe losers, which include an Olympic gold medalist and the heaviest contestant to date, will be allowed to choose between sweating it out with trusted trainers Michaels and Bob Harper and face elimination each week, or train with the unknown duo and receive immunity for a month.

'Biggest Loser' Strike Update: Striking Crew Got Support From AFL-CIO & 'Loser' Talent

16 November 2010 11:30 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The crowd on the picket line at The Biggest Loser ranch is expected to be significantly larger tomorrow after the La County AFL-CIO affiliate today endorsed the Iatse-led strike by the reality series' crew and vowed to send picketers from some of the 350 unions and more than 800,000 unions it represents. There won't be much to picket though as Biggest Loser is not scheduled to be filming on Wednesday. Meanwhile, the show's AFTRA-represented talent, trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper and host Alison Sweeney are yet to cross the picket line despite having no-strike clauses in their contracts. What's more, the three are auctioning off a training session (Michaels/Harper) and a lunch date (Sweeney) on Ebay to support the relief fund established for the striking crew. »

NBC's The Biggest Loser completed its first day of filming while picketed by some 50 striking crew members. The show's two trainers, Jilian Michaels, who had said she won't cross the picket line, and Bob Harper, were not scheduled to work, so they didn't show up at The Biggest Loser Ranch where the reality series is filmed. Among those who did show up and crossed the picket line were executive producers J.D. Roth and Todd Nelson, founders/CEO's of 3 Ball Prods. (see photo by Jim Stevenson below). Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, will hold a meeting tomorrow to sanction the Iatse-led strike by the crew of The Biggest Loser. A press event is scheduled for 11:15 Am. “The producers of this show want to make their own workers ‘the biggest losers’ and the labor movement in La is not going to let that happen,” Afl-cio's Maria Elena Durazo said in a statement. »

Two contestants exit 'Biggest Loser'

10 November 2010 2:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jesse and Aaron have become the latest players to be eliminated from The Biggest Loser in an episode that featured a live update segment. The episode opened with Bob Harper standing outside a house belonging to one of the eliminees and telling viewers in a live broadcast that two contestants would be going home this week before the program flashed back to show what had happened on campus over the past few days. Alison told the remaining ten players that they would be split into pairs and have to compete in those partnerships - but there was a twist. The contestant who triumphed in the temptation challenge would be given the power to choose the teams. The players were told to pick an appetizer, entree and dessert from a set menu and whichever person consumed the most calories (they had to eat everything on their plate) would have the power to pick. »

'The Biggest Loser''s Rick Went Home Because of Game Play

25 October 2010 11:00 AM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

They say nice guys finish last and that may have been the problem for Richard Deroque on Tuesday night's "The Biggest Loser." When he refused to join in an alliance to vote someone out who he felt deserved to be on the ranch, he was eliminated when his black team lost the weigh-in. With a nine-pound weight loss for the week, Rick never suspected it would be his neck on the chopping block. Now, "The Insider" talks to the ousted "Loser" about dropping 120 pounds [his starting weight was 350] and how sweet life is today. I actually thought Elizabeth was going home, although there was that one comment that the person going home would be surprised. Were you blindsided and why do you think the team picked you to eliminate? Richard De Roque: The answer to being blindsided: I was definitely blindsided. I did not see that coming at all. That is what made it real difficult at that time. »

'The Biggest Loser''s Burgandy on her 51-Pound Weight Loss

13 October 2010 2:53 PM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

When Burgandy Keel began "The Biggest Loser," she weighed 231 pounds. Now, the 35-year-old from Eagle Mountain, Utah has shed 51 pounds and has a new lease on life. "The Insider" talks to the ousted contestant about how she maintained a positive attitude after her injury on the show, visiting Bob Harper's house and how she is doing at home. You had such a positive attitude, despite being injured and not allowed to participate in the challenge to save yourself from elimination. Was there one thing at the ranch that happened that inspired you? Burgandy Keel: I think the other contestants were truly the people who inspired me the most. I would see them up at midnight on the treadmills working out just to make sure they gave it 110 percent. You had a really rare opportunity to have dinner at Bob's house. How was that experience and did it make you think about becoming vegan? »

Healthy Hollywood: Fab Food Friday - Breakfast Is For Champions!

1 October 2010 1:00 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

"The Biggest Loser" trainer Bob Harper stopped by Access Hollywood Live to chat with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover about the importance of breakfast. Yup, we've heard it time and time again, it is the day's most important meal, and those who take the time for breakfast tend to be slimmer.

But, less than half of Americans eat breakfast everyday! As a parent, it crushes me when my teenage daughter skimps breakfast because she's got a fashion emergency (or some other teen drama) and heads to school with her tank half full! Never good for a cheery mood ...
