Biggest Loser Season 14 is back on In January with two back to back episodes on January 6th and 7th. And there are a bunch of changes with Jillian Micheals coming back and heavy kids on the show this time. I am sure the show will make people think about how they are feeding kids and what they are doing to themselves as well.
New mother Jillian Michaels is back, ready to whip contestants into shape with her tough-as-nails, no nonsense approach, alongside returning trainers and top fitness experts Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince. Alison Sweeney hosts the series.
This season’s 15 contestants will be divided into three teams — supervised by trainers Harper, Michaels and Quince. Each trainer and team of five adults will be paired with one child participant who will compete with and contribute to their respective teams.
This Years Biggest Loser Contestants
The adult contestants for season 14 of “The Biggest Loser” will include Lisa Rambo, a high school special education assistant and mother of four who wants to be a healthy role model for her children, and hopes to one day open a special needs gym in her community to help her over students; 21-year-old Jackson Carter, the show’s first openly gay contestant who was bullied both for his and his sexuality after coming out at age 14, and now works as a volunteer coordinator for an LGBT youth outreach center, and Joe Ostaszewski, a former high school and college football player who continued to eat like an active football player long after his athletic career was over.
Also competing this season will be 47-year-old attorney, law firm owner and mother of two Gina McDonald, who is very accomplished in her professional life, but has not been able to get control of her lifelong struggle with ; 51-year-old police officer David Jones, who at 307 pounds is struggling to keep up with the physical demands of his job, and college professor and communications consultant Michael Dorsey, the heaviest contestant this season at 444 pounds, who wants to be a healthy role model for his young son and says. “Losing just seems like that impossible mountain that I cannot overcome.”’
Working closely with the children this season will be Dr. Joanna Dolgoff, a childhood obesity expert and pediatrician whose book “Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right” features the child-friendly healthy eating plan the kids will follow. Along with the trainers and the “Biggest Loser” medical staff, the kids will follow an age-appropriate program that will help them get healthy, achieve their personal goals and transform their lives during the course of the season.

I am again excited about watching the show this year and the kids will be a great added twist to the show. I have to wonder how they will change the show up this season to stop it from getting stale like it has started to get in the last few years.
