The Biggest Loser Contestants: On Strike!

by at . Comments

Contestants on this season of The Biggest Loser have a weighty issue with NBC.

Those remaining on the reality competition have actually walked off the set and are threatening to collectively quit because they learned producers were planning to bring back former contestants to compete for this season's $250,000 grand prize.

This is not an atypical move in the world of reality TV, of course, but this season's hopefuls all find it unfair that past losers are now being given a chance to become winners again.

NBC has not commented on the situation, and production has been suspended for a few days, but season 12 contestant John Forger tells TMZ this season's competitors are missing the point of their participation.

"It's not about [money]. What it's really about, for most of us, is the change in our lifestyle, and being able to get rid of obesity," he says. "For most of us, it's about health. Would I walk off the show for the money? ABSOLUTELY NOT."

The contestants have lost sight of why they are there. NBC should let them go and make them pay back all of the money that has been spent on them so far. There are thousands of people who would love to take their place.

This season of the biggest loser is the worst I've seen. These people aren't losing big amounts of weight like previous contestants, they are there for the MONEY not the weight. Now your saying they don't want anyone to return...maybe that's what should happen bring back the contestants that got sent home and get rid of the whiners and cry baby's. Be done with it and can them all or your ratings are going down the tubes.

We're done watching this show because of Conda & Kim!! If the producers don't get them off this show & put loyal, dedicated, deserving people back on... We will never watch Biggest Loser again! Producers, if you want your ratings to stay up & if you care to keep your show & fans like us.. Get all these people off!! Bring back the previous contestants & make this a fair enjoyable show to watch!! So disappointed in everyone! We're officially done with this show!

I say bring back the older contestants. This group is horrible and I can't stand to watch another episode. Conda and Kimmie make me sick.

Get this whole group out. This is the worst entitlement group ever. I used to like the show, they are nice and inspiring. If I want to watch mean, lazy and snakes I would had watch Survivor. My wife is done watching this season.

I have been watching this show since it started. That Conda has to go because she has started alot of problems. She has alot of problems so my advise to her is she should see a Pyc doctor not a
weight doctor. She is terible and the other gal to that is on the show that follows her around like a puppydog.Get rid of them both.

The contestants that are left this year are a bunch of spoiled brats. They didn't even give the couple that lost the 50 pounds and returned a chance. Send them all home!!

I find it ironic how the theme of the season is "no excuses" and this crop of contestants does nothing but whine and complain and make excuses! I say bring the old contestants back and let this season's group walk!

Let them walk out and quit. Then bring back all eliminated contestants to compete for the prize. Please NBC, don't cast another group like this. We want to be inspired!

Can't stand Conda, I wish she had left the show. As far as the other "team members" shmae on them for not doing what is right but following the evil Conda.
