Thursday on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, the show's "Wall of Glory" offered a sense of pride for the athletes coming together as a community.

A sense of pride for what they had accomplished, and one day might again.

The past is the past, of course, and we've got work to do. A LOT of work.

In the first workout of The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 3, it hurts. Bad.

The mental and physical toll is starting to be taken on some of the stars looking to relive their Glory Days, making you wonder if they'll ever get there.

By the end, though, the gang is firing on all cylinders for the most part.

The first challenge involved a crash course in nutrition and calories, teaching the athletes about portion sizes and food choices and how vital they are.

The winning team gets a two pound advantage at the scale, while the losing team's trainers had to eat the unhealthy food in question during the quiz.

Talk about an incentive to Google some nutrition facts ... or just watch The Biggest Loser online, because they've done a lot of the work for you now.

Thursday on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 1, a number of world-class athletes competed to return to their past form. Their Glory Days, if you will.

Dolvett Quince has returned as a trainer, while Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom have joined the show this season, replacing Jillian Michaels.

The 20 contestants are each vying for the grand prize of $250,000 and title of The Biggest Loser, which is the reason to watch The Biggest Loser online.

Money is great, but it's all about the bragging rights and self-esteem.

The first challenge saw contestants competing in a beach volleyball event in which players chose their trainer for the season, with the last two eliminated.

But there's a twist: The two eliminated players are whisked off to a hidden location and met by Bob Harper, to train for the week at Comeback Canyon.

Winner stays at the Ranch, loser goes home for good. On to the results ...

Jillian Michaels is explaining her decision to exit NBC's The Biggest Loser after 10 years, citing irreconcilable differences (so to speak) with producers.

The 40-year-old fitness guru admits to People that "there were some fundamental [differences with Loser producers] that have existed for a while."

"I don't want the fans to think I feel like I'm too big for the show or that I'm seeking greener pastures. I'm so grateful to the show and so sad to leave."

One main issue was producers' portrayal of Michaels herself.

"In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love," she says, but lately, "You saw none of the relationships."

"[You saw] none of the bonds that I build with my clients."

As a result, the trainer believes, "millions of people have this warped negative perception of me" as a harsh person, and that spilled into her personal life.

According to a number of reports, Rob Kardashian wants nothing to do with Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But this doesn't mean the overweight 27-year old is finished with reality television for good.

According to anonymous Hollywood Life insiders, Kris Jenner has been meeting with NBC to pitch her son for a spot on The Biggest Loser Season 16.

Both E! and NBC are owned by NBC Universal, meaning many of the same folks involved with KUWTK also play a role on The Biggest Loser.

"Everyone is on board for this to happen except Rob, he still needs convincing," the site claims. "But most people involved in the talks think Kris will get her way and have him join the show."

A show about losing weight may be losing one of its stars.

According to People sources, Jillian Michaels is "deeply concerned about the direction" of The Biggest Loser and may soon depart the series that made her famous.

"She is turned off by the mean-spirited story lines and poor care of the contestants," an anonymous insider tells the magazine.

This rumors comes a few months after the show’s most controversial finale to date, as Rachel Frederickson won the latest season, but failed to win over critics.

Many believe Frederickson dieted to a dangerously low level, dropping 150 pounds in the process.

Give The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson credit for her attitude.

After her stunning 155-pound weight loss - and resulting 105-pound frame - were revealed on the Season 15 finale, the 24-year-old faced major backlash.

Millions of viewers of NBC's weight loss competition, and some of the trainers who helped her, thought she had gone too far and was too skinny now.

Rachel Frederickson didn't see it as just criticism, though. Just concern.

"I'll always be grateful for the concern everyone had," Rachel tells Us Weekly.

"I will say, I had so much positive support, even on social media. Honestly, you look at it and you say, 'Wow, if people are talking, they're concerned or supportive.'"

"And at the end of the day, that's pretty amazing to have so many people aware of what I went through," she added, "and what others are going through."

Wow. That is one positive outlook. She admits it wasn't always easy, though.

The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson hasn't kept all the weight off since the show's finale, and in her case, she says that's a very good thing.

The winner of the 15th season, who shocked the cast and TBL viewers with her wild 155-pound slimdown, revealed that she has since gained 20 back.

She does not regret the big response to her big reveal, however.

"It started a discussion about body image. That's huge," Rachel says of the debate over whether she was too thin upon revealing her winning figure at the time.

Since then, "I've gone up about 20 pounds," she adds.

As a result of that, "I think I'm at my perfect weight."

That would put the 24-year-old Rachel Frederickson at a sound 125 pounds, after weighing for the final time on The Biggest Loser at just 105.

When Rachel Frederickson revealed her weight loss on The Biggest Loser finale, even Jillian Michaels was agasp. Until now, though, she hadn't opened up about it.

"I was stunned," the trainer told HuffPost Live.

"I thought she had lost too much weight."

Michaels said the show implements a number of checks and balances, including having the trainers check in with contestants even after the ranch.

But she had no idea Rachel Frederickson had been losing so much on her own, bringing her weight loss total to a staggering 155 pounds (out of 260).

"In my opinion, this had fallen through those checks and balances," she said of The Biggest Loser winner and her controversial season-ending reveal.

Frederickson herself has since said she may have gone to an extreme, admitting: "Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale."

The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson, 24, visited Today this morning, and if she was looking to quell criticism of her appearance, she succeeded.

She certainly appeared much healthier than earlier this month, when she won The Biggest Loser and shocked the world with her astonishing weight loss.

The former swimmer dropped 155 pounds (starting from 260 when the show began) in just a seven-month span, and stunned viewers with her big reveal.

Even trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper were stunned.

Rachel Frederickson came under fire for being too skinny and the show itself was criticized for what some believe is a lack of ethics and oversight.

But since then, the former swimming standout seems to have slightly filled out, with much less severe facial features in what she calls her "maintenance mode."

When Rachel Frederickson unveiled her 155-pound weight loss in just seven months on The Biggest Loser finale, jaws literally hit the floor. Or at least fell in that direction.

Jillian Michaels' reaction was priceless, while the 24-year-old's trainer, Dolvett Quince, admits he was as "shocked" by her appearance as the viewing populace.

"The first thing that went through my mind was, 'That's just too much,'" he said.

Rachel Frederickson tells People that perhaps she competed a little too hard, working out six hours a day in the three months leading up to her astonishing reveal.

"Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in training to get to the finale," says the contestant, who won $250,000 on The Biggest Loser, and who also defends her actions.

Asked point blank whether she has an eating disorder or whether she is too skinny as a result of dropping to 105 lbs., Frederickson replies, "I am very, very healthy."
