It’s that time of the year again where the Biggest Loser comes back to NBC with two new trainers, a returning vet and respectfully, the Chicago Obesity Examiner as well as millions of viewers adjust to the lost of veteran trainer Jillian Michaels.
For those who have been watching Biggest Loser since day one, the question on everyone’s mind was will the Biggest Loser still have the same edge as before? The answer still remains to be seen. One thing is for certain, season 12 of the Biggest Loser has already set itself apart from seasons past.
Before we dive into what is being called the “Battle of the Ages,” how about we meet the trainers. Returning veteran trainer Bob Harper is the only trainer who has been a part of the Biggest Loser since it all began.
With 10++ years under belt as a personal trainer, Bob Harper picked up the Black Team shirts this year, (4o’s age group)has always incorporated yoga, strength training and aerobic exercises into his repertoire…so far, nothing’s changed and millions of Americans can take a huge sigh of relief.
Dolvett Quince, (Red Team Trainer of the 20’s age group) from Atlanta has been a personal trainer for more than 12 years, has celebrity clients such as Justin Bieber, Nicole Ari-Parker and Boris Kodjoe, and puts the “personal” in personal training as a life coach as well.
Not to be outdone, Anna Kournikova, (The blue Team, 60’s age group) adds a new dimension in the Biggest Loser training trio this year as well. Her notoriety as“bad girl” tennis pro may pay off for this newly appointed personal trainer. Will her knowledge in tennis training help or hurt her team? Keep watching to find out the answer.
No matter who America is rooting for, one thing is for certain. The two rookie trainers have their work cut out for them if they ever want to match or come close to the knowledge of how to work with obese individuals. Bob Harper truly has the unfair advantage.
Host Alison Sweeney returned as well and the first contestant (Debbie from the Blue Team), was eliminated at this week’s weight in with a mere loss of 14 pounds.
As nice as dropping 14 pounds in a week sounds, the Chicago Obesity Examiner would like to reiterate the point that these contestants are advised by personal trainers, physicians and have emergency staff on hand 24/7.
Watch the Biggest Loser Season 12 on Tuesdays, 8/7 M CST only n Comcast channel 5 NBC.
