Season Three of The Biggest Loser

The third season of the show aired in September of 2006. This season had the largest number of contestants so far, with a total of fifty people. Each contestant represented a different state in the U.S. However, the group was brought down to fourteen after the trainers begin selecting people for their teams. Kim Lyons was the personal trainer this season, and she and her team competed against Bob Harper and his team.

Four finalists were chosen for the last weigh in, and Erik was the declared the winner, since he lost nearly 214 pounds, which was over 50% of his body weight. Poppi came in second with $50,000, and Brian was given the $100,000 prize due to his ability to lose just over 50% of his body weight.

Season Three Contestants

Season Two of The Biggest Loser

A number of changes occurred in the second season. The teams were split by gender, with men competing against women, and the total percentage of the weight loss was used to determine who would be eliminated. By the seventh episode of season two, the two large teams were split into four smaller teams of two. The four smaller teams were a mixture of men and women, and were no longer split by gender. By episode 9, the remaining participants were competing against each other on an individual level. The winner was Matt, who was given the $250,000 prize. However, second and third place winners were added, and these were Seth and Suzy, who won $50,000 and $25,000 respectively.

Season Two Contestants

Season One of The Biggest Loser

Twelve contestants were chosen in this season, and they would compete for a grand prize of $250,000 dollars. The participants will stay in a ranch where they will be given space and exercise equipment. They are split in two teams, and both teams will be given their own trainer. In the earlier weeks of the program, the weights of both teams will be measured and compared to determine which is larger. Each week, the team that loses the least amount of weight must vote off one member, and this will be generally someone who has lost the least amount of weight. However, a team member who loses too much weight may also be eliminated.
