13 weeks ago we met 10 couples – all desperately overweight, all extremely unhealthy and all with a very different set of circumstances that led them to apply for this year’s Biggest Loser Couples. Well the journey getting to that point may have differed from couple to couple, but the journey that followed was a shared experience by a group who had all but lost their self worth and esteem. Tonight, they show off the culmination of their hard work, sweat and tears as they reveal their incredible transformations.
Last year the audience peaked at a record 2.35 million as viewers tuned in to see 20 year old Sam Rouen – Australia’s youngest ever contestant – win the Biggest Loser title by shedding a staggering 71.7 kilos. This year though, the scales may just tip towards the other end of the age range – or maybe even the first female winner? One thing is for certain, the weight loss this year has been phenomenal. They started out on fitzroy island weighing a combined 2683 kg, they take to The Biggest Loser stage tonight dramatically lighter and almost unrecognisable.
Thanks to the Double or Nothing bracelets that were introduced to the game this year, there’s even more at stake tonight. If the winner is wearing the Double bracelet, then they double their prize money to an almighty $400,000. If however they are in possession of the Nothing bracelet then that’s exactly what they’ll be leaving with.
Double or nothing – it’s still a game where everyone comes out a winner. Or more accurately, a loser.
