Bob Harper, who takes over hosting duties after sixteen seasons of being one of the show's trainers, announces the many other changes to the show this season, including the house, the gym, and even the weigh-in room.

Taste Test; Keep on Truckin'
Team Dolvett is the first to lose a player as Britney is voted off the ranch after the first competitive weigh-in. This week is all about food temptations.

Hooked on 'Tronics; the Big Switch
With Whitney and Hope respectively being eliminated after the last two weigh-ins, thirteen contestants remain at the ranch.

The first team challenge reflects the plugged in nature of the world, ...

Ready? Set. Auction!; Ship Shape
With Richard and Sarah respectively being eliminated after the last two weigh-ins, eleven contestants remain at the ranch. In the first of the two weeks, the temptation dangled in front of the contestants is the distraction of luxury, which may take them away from the want to lead a healthy lifestyle, although the two need not be mutually exclusive. Bob holds an auction for the contestants who have the opportunity with a set amount of "Biggest Loser Bucks" to buy items, some which are health related - such as a one-on-one training session with Bob at his house - some ...

Homeward Bound; Real World Problems
With Toy and Vicki respectively being eliminated after the last two weigh-ins, nine contestants remain at the ranch. In the first of the two weeks, Bob announces that the team challenge - which entails throwing ten pound medicine balls in a net held up by the opposing team, the winner who either reaches a certain number of "baskets" or the opposing team dropping their net - may be the most important as the reward is that the winning team gets to choose one person from each team to go home for the week with no trainer, and with those two contestants being the only ones...

The last person to hit the water wins the challenge and the associated reward of a one pound advantage, and the ability to give a one pound disadvantage to another contestant, that contestant to be announced at the weigh-in. The winner realizes the power that comes with this reward, while...
