'Biggest Loser' Contestants

Throw Weight Around,

Threaten to Quit Show

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

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.

If they walked off then replace them with th ones coming back that want to be there for more then just the money.Simple as that they obviously do not care about their health or they would have stayed and fought to be healthy.

I'm for getting rid of Conda, too. She is most toxic person that has ever been on the show. I figure most of the contestants are scared to go against her, because she will turn everyone else against them.

Let the crybabies quit then they can bring on the ones that really want to loose weight. By the time they get done listening to Conda and Kim and follow them like a bunch of lemmings, geesh. This season ought to be called the Biggest Crybabies and racist. I would also like to know what church Mark is a youth pastor at. Talk about two faced. Let them leave and bring back the vote offs, I say

I agree that Conda is most likely behind it. This group of contestants need to get the boot. They are so concerned about the drama versus the whole reason they are at the BL Ranch. There are so many people that would love to be in their place. Get rid of them and bring back the other contestants.

yup, my first thought is Condo is behind it. She is a young b*tch. Also, that red-haired girl. She's #2 trouble. Guess what, when you write and make a show you can do it your way! NBC should not have backed down. I'm sure not all of them were going to walk off. After they treated the couple who came back so poorly, Condo should have been kicked off for being a bully and harassing them.

What a joke this season has been. I can't believe how terrible those contestants are treating each other. Very inhumane. I've always loved to watch each season but no more. If this is the way the producers are having each show, then you will not have my time watching. Conda needs to leave. She is evil. Kim is not far behind. How can people treat each other so horrible?? And the trainers edged them on towards Daphney. That is absolutely so unprofessional. I have always admired Bob but he edged Conda and Daphney against one another. How terriblel. I have cancelled my subscription to the Biggest Loser Club.

They should let all the remainding contestants go and bring back everyone who already went home. The contestants clearly are not in this to lose weight and make a better life for themselves. They're LOSERS alright, but not in the weight loss arena!

The producers have the opportunity to prove the show is about healthy weight loss... Have Allison announce that there will be one fewer player on the ranch at the end of the week. Then, bring back all of this season's contestants for a weigh-in comparing everyone's TOTAL weight loss percentage since the first weigh-in, with a red line cutting off the number of contestants they need to end with. Those below the 'red line' are out, and the *real* biggest losers compete as individuals for the remainder of the season. (They could also have a 'yellow-line' for the two just above the red line, allowing for a 'vote' by the remaining contestants...)

I have always been inspired by Biggest Loser, but this season is extremely disappointing. Will not one soul, even a trainer, stand up and help Conda look in the mirror and see how she is not only destroying her self, but others around her. It is like watching the public school systems in America. All the ones left behind are losers...and not in the way the show is promoting!

Ohh grow up. We have biggest loser in Australia and they do this nearly every season. Basically the voted out contestants come in and compete for a wild card spot. Why should the current contestants feel threatened, if they have been working out and following their diet properly there shouldn't be an issue.

I don't believe that it's an accident that this season is so toxic. I think that the new producers look at scuzzy shows like, "Keeping Up With The KarTRASHians" and "Basketball Wives" and want to compete with that. The producers that underestimated the BL audience should all be fired when they escort that c*nt Conda and that low-life, Kim, off the ranch. There is so my obesity in this country. Many of us look forward to BL because it was uplifting, emotional, inspirational, and had results. Families could watch together. Now, all new producers want to go the way of smut-TV. WTF?! Conda has to go NOW! She's a cancer in America's living rooms. If the producers want to save what's left of their show, they had better quickly return to the wholesomeness of the past. I felt dirty after last night's episode.
