'The Biggest Loser' Is Revealed In Exciting, Live Season Finale Monday, February 22 (9-11 P.M. ET) On NBC
February 16, 2016 – Sixteen contestants from the temptation-themed season 17 of NBC’s ‘The Biggest Loser’ will return for a special reunion and a chance to weigh in one last time before the winner is revealed on the show’s exciting season finale airing Monday, February 22 (9-11 p.m. ET). For the first time in “Biggest Loser” history, the live finale will also include a new twist that could dramatically impact the competition.
In the most recent episode that aired February 15, contestants Roberto Hernandez, a physical/health/driver’s education teacher from Burbank, IL, and Stephen Kmet, a pharmaceutical sales recruiter from Hainesport, NJ, were revealed as two of the three finalists competing for the $250,000 grand prize. The third finalist, to be revealed in the live finale, will either be Stephen’s wife, high school counselor Jacky Kmet, or car dealership salesman Colby Wright, of K’Ville, GA.
After the third finalist is revealed in the finale, the final three contestants will be surprised with a new twist that will raise the stakes even higher in the competition as season 17 comes to an exciting close. All sixteen contestants, who began the season as eight teams of two, will weigh in one last time and show America how much weight they’ve all lost since beginning their weight-loss journeys. Those who have been eliminated will compete for the $100,000 “at home” prize. Then it’s the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season’s “Biggest Loser” and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000.
“The Biggest Loser" is a production of Endemol Shine North America and 25/7 Productions. Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, Eden Gaha, Alex Katz, Joel Relampagos, Michael Brooks, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are the executive producers.
