Biggest Loser is the original fitness reality show. This is a season long elimination competition in which contestants work to lose weight. The trainers are Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom,, Dolvett Quince, and Bob Harper, and they help each person lose their excess pounds. They recommend that anyone applying be 100+ pounds overweight. The winner of each year receives a prize of $250,000, and there is a second prize of $100,00 for the “At Home Winner”.

This show has a major fan following and being a contestant on the show will set someone up as a celebrity in their area. Appearing on NBC in prime time will give you mean that millions of people will hear your story. This can create a huge amount of stress to be healthy after appearing on the show. Literally everywhere you go, you’ll be seeing people who watched you go through the life changing experience of shedding the weight. If you are truly ready for a change then this may be the show for you. This is incredible hard work that requires working out many hours per day.
