The competition heats up as host Alison Sweeney of “The Biggest Looser” tells the final seven players that they will be competing in a pentathlon, and they can only rely on themselves because this week, the game goes to singles. The pentathlon winner gets the popular prize of immunity, while the loser gets a weigh-in drawback.
The players get a very special surprise with the arrival of short track speed skater Apolo Ohno, the most decorated American Winter Olympic athlete of all time. “The experience on ‘The Biggest Loser’ was fantastic,” said Ohno. “It truly is about the contestants and helping them persevere through all obstacles. These people are all inspirations to the millions watching, and I wanted to squeeze every last percent of performance out of them so they could cross the line with zero regrets.” He added, “I love the show and what it stands for. It is exactly what we all need to see – people overcoming fears and obstacles to achieve their dreams.”
"The Biggest Loser" is a production of Reveille, 25/7 Productions and 3 Ball Productions. Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson and Todd Lubin are the executive producers.
