It’s been a long, hot (and wonderful) summer–almost perfect, except for one thing…summer means NO BIGGEST LOSER. Tonight, that all changes. Season 12 of the show that changes lives, airs tonight from 8-10 eastern time. I spent a little time this morning, surfing around the net and getting to know a little about the season 12 contestants and the new trainers. The theme for this season is old against young, I believe, but I have no idea where the line will fall. There are several contestants in their 60s and quite a few in their 20s, the remainder in between. Several of the men weigh over 400 pounds, but none more. As always there’s an interesting mix of professions, even a tattoo artist, which means we will see a lot of ink in the gym and on the scale.
Also looking forward to getting to know the new trainers. Yes, Jillian will be sorely missed, but I have always been a big Bob Harper fan, personally. I love his disposition and how he incorporates yoga into his trainings. We will “meet” Dolvett Quince, owner of Body Sculptor Inc., who apparently helped Justin Bieber train for his latest tour and says his greatest accomplishment is helping one client lose 325 pounds. Sounds like a somewhat regular guy. Not in any way a regular “gal,” we will also get to know tennis superstar, Anna Kournikova, who will round out the threesome of trainers. She is NOT new to helping change the face of fitness, having worked with Boys and Girls Club of America, as well as helping Cartoon Network’s Movement campaign and travels the world promoting health and and wellness.
While this show gets awesome ratings, my guess is the addition of Ms. Kournikova to the cast, will spike the ratings even more as I would imagine there are men that will tune in just to watch her. Hey, whatever it takes. Host, Alison Sweeney ain’t too bad to look at, either!
If you want some motivation, tune in. Remember that what happens on the ranch can’t happen in your home but the inspiration can be awesome. Biggest Loser, changing lives. I can hardly wait! Only about 12 more hours.
