'Biggest Loser' Contestants

Throw Weight Around,

Threaten to Quit Show

2/22/2012 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0221_loser2_EXC

There's a big, fat problem on the set of "The Biggest Loser" -- TMZ has learned nearly all of the remaining contestants have walked off the show and are threatening to quit after learning about a secret "twist" that could seriously affect their shot at the $250,000 grand prize.

Multiple sources connected with the show tell us ... the mutiny took place this week ... when the losers got word that producers were considering bringing back previous contestants to compete for the grand prize.

We're told most of the current contestants were pissed -- feeling it was unfair that prior losers would get a second bite at the apple ... so they banded together and decided to protest by walking off the show in the middle of shooting an episode.

Sources tell us ... show honchos have shut down production for at least a week while they figure out how to handle the situation.

A rep for NBC had no comment on the situation.

This season is the worst season I have seen in a long time. Contestants of the past 2 seasons really cared about each other. they didn't care about the money, they cared about each other and gave away things they won, to others in need. This year it reminds of season one and the games they played. How they Treated Daphne and her Brother Adrian, they were evil to the core. Conda and Cassandra are the meanest, nastiest people ever. Conda causes all the problems, has serious issues, and she is a Witch with the broom up her butt. She needs to go home and there is no one this year, with their attitudes, their complaining, that I would root for to win. I hope Daphne and Adrian come back and knock them out.

This season of the Biggest Loser has to be the worst gaggle of infantile, back-biting, spoiled (Conda)misfits that I have watched of all seasons. The way these spoiled little minded people treated Daphne and her brother is sooo GHETTO. The producers of the show are committing suicide with the direction this show is going by bringing on such a ridiculous cast of LOSERS.

If the remaining contestants want to walk off, let them go! After last night, there's not one left worth watching. I've been a faithful follower of BL since season 1, but I'm DONE after last night. The producers have ruined this show and what it was all about. If I want to watch conniving, backstabbing, immature excuses for human beings, I'll tune in to Big Brother or some other VH1 or MTV Reality show. Not that there's anything wrong with those types of shows -- just not what I am expecting to watch at 7:00 Tues (check local listing).

Conda is a self absorbed not even human she is the ickiest reptile ever. They should end the show with a few past episodes from other season's and start over.

Send them all packing. Last nights was the biggest farce yet. Conda is a bully. Those stupid fat people let her tell them what to do and they blindly follow. Just end it and begin again with some nice folks who want to lose weight. It would be a just end for those fat jerks.

Can you

The best thing that could happen to save this season of the show would be that this article is true. Producers: If the remaining contestants decided to walk off the show, LET THEM GO!!! You have to be blind not to see how EVERYBODY agrees that these contestants have ruined this show. There is not one positive thing that has come out of it. You have time to save it, let them walk away. Nobody will miss them. And give this once in a lifetime oportunity to somebody that can really appreciate it and benefit from it. I have watched this show from the very first episode every single season and last time was the first time I didn't watch. And I'm not watching for the rest of the season unless these people are gone. I got sick watching the last few weeks and decided my time was too valuable to waste it with so much negativity. So listen to what the people are saying, if you want this show to continue. If we wanted to watch drama, we would be watching the Kardashians or Jersey Shore. This should be a motivational and inspirational show. This season, not at all. Get rid of them and make yourself and everybody else a favor.

What a freaking joke this season is supposed to be about no excuses. However, this group continues to whine and complain about everything. I thought they were there to get their life in order and loose weight. I mean is it really about the money?? They should use this opportunity to have a second chance at life. Biggest LOSER should let their AZZ walk because they have always had a twist. They should not allow this group to set a precedent!

This is about season 13. Season 14 hasn't even had casting opened up yet. I really hope NBC and TBL do not cave and allow the people who walked off to come back. I was at the DC casting call and there were so many people who wanted to be on the show to lose weight and become healthier people inside and out that were not picked.

The Jerry Springer show...oops I mean Biggest Looser. Bob Harper run from this show....the current producers are successfully turning this show into another bad reality show. They have successfully made you look like you are angry, not in control of those you train and unaware of the human condition....we all know that is not really true. Leave the show while you still have your good reputation.

If this story is accurate, I really hope the producers of TBL are reading the boards. This cast needs to be sent packing and not given the chance to win either prize. Bring back all the eliminated players and give them the opportunity to win.

GOOD! I hope the producers end the show right now and start over with a new group! These contestants are a bunch of low life idiots... I just hate watching that Kim and Conda.. they should be asked to leave for good!

let them all leave!!!!! Im sure this was Conda's idea since she is the laziest person at the ranch and doesn't want to do anything except get all the other sheep to do what she wants. Just think, in one year all these sheep will be back at their "fat" weight.

Thats what happens when the producers who brought life to this show leave!!! Obviously the ones that are left have no idea how to talk to the contestants or show them respect. This show is falling apart and it makes me sad because it was my favorite. This season and last suck and I heard that the original producers are gone. Sad.

This season SUCKS anyway. Conda is a cancer that is spreading to everyone in the house. The gameplay is taking over the purpose of the show...losing weight and getting healthy, and motivating others watching the show to do something except sit on their fat butts. I'm done with the show.
