'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.

Here's a solution... any contestant REFUSING to continue taping the season/finale should be DISQUALIFIED and NOT ELIGIBLE for the prize$$$... any PREVIOUSLY ELIMINATED contestant that wants to compete for the $250K prize should be given the opportunity... I've watched EVERY SEASON of the BL since it started... and THIS group of contestants are the BIGGEST BABIES I have EVER SEEN... last night was WEEK 8 and NOONE (not even JEREMY who is STILL over 300 lbs) has lost a 100 lbs.!!! Stay STRONG show HONCHOS... just b/c they have "bullied" every other person/contestant on the show DO NOT let them bully you!!!!

Since when do contestants get to call the shots. If they don't like it let them walk. Its's a shame that there are people who would give anything to be on the show. All this group does is complain and blame everything on everybody else. This is not the season of no excuses. It's the season of every excuse in the book. I don't know how Bob and Dolvett can stand it.

I am pretty sure they all want a participation trophy. The design of "The Game" seems to have worked in the last 12 seasons. I was always taught to finish what I start so if they want to walk off ... then ... help them pack their bags. I am not sure of the number of people that were pasted on before the finale ones, that get to go to the ranch but I am sure you can find enough players that will not whine every chance they get and play the game. Twists are part of the game and it is what makes it a unique show!!!!

I do not like the contestants this season...bullies and cry babies. I hope the producers call their bluff and bring back contestants who have gone home to compete for the prize.

Let the fat asses walk off! They are getting the highest quality of personal training for free, along with a gym, lunch, etc. So ungrateful. Bring back the kicked off people and let the show run on!

Good! Im tired of this season and watching these contestants bitch and complain. You're on the show to lose the weight and to gain confidence. The BITCHY attitude gives me and others the idea that this is what fat and obese people do...Complain when they have to exercise.

OMFG really? Come on where have their heads been burried they have done this in the past. If they are wanting to be this petty then they are only in it for the money NOT for their health. There is one that needs to be gotten rid if because she is a B******. I am so totally about the drama that the producers have allowed this show to turn into

This year, Biggest Losers has the most lazy, mean, cynical, NASTY group... CONDA is truly THE worst, nastiest person.
Daaphne and her brother worked hard and EXCEEDED the required goal to return to the show, and take THEIR spot.
Upon return, they were all smiles, friendly, pleasant.
INSTEAD of being praised, welcomed, encouraged, they were told to keep their mouth shut and listen...
When anyone starts on the show, they are free to say anything they want. NO ONE ever tells them to shut up and listen...
This was unfair and ABUSIVE.
Daphne made the right move when she moved Conda and her brother.
INSTEAD of pulling together as a GOOD team... the Black "nasty team" let Bob down, squandered a week of Biggest Loser Camp, and lost their self control and were cruel to Daphne who had outdone Conda the week before... So, they DEFEATED themselves by losing a GREAT asset. WHAT A STUPID bunch!!!
Conda is quicksand.She had sort of teamed with 2 other nasty women who think themselves above anyone... Conda needed to be removed.
So, yes, Daphne made the RIGHT, and best possible move.
Why did she gain 2 lbs when she walked so much more?
Did she eat too much? How could this have happened?
WHY does the show allow these people like Conda to be so NASTY and ABUSIVE to others.
Had Conda and her brother been sent home for a month, would they have lost 50 lbs on their own? Of course, NOT.......
The show was likely taped a long time ago...
If it was now, I would suggest that both be sent home for a month, and asked to lose 50 lbs on their own.............
and, see what they really do.

Arriving "late" on a show... should not hurt the newcomers like this.
My heart truly goes out to Daphne and her brother.
SHAME befalls others on the show.............

Good news...... now, the Black team is stuck with nasty Conda.
It'll be interesting to see when they will wake up...

Jillian needs to come back to this show.

Suggestion............
Bring 4 new people weekly, to replace the 1 voted off.
Instead of the show only lasting 2 hours a week,
and just a few months,
it could last 2 hours weekly, for several months.


Adding 4 new persons weekly,
would improve the odds for those who should not be abused...
and, would afford a huge opportunity to more people...
not so much just to win the money, but, to have a great boost at losing weight... and, it would push / challenge the lazy ones who
"threaten" to quit the show.
You want to quit...... GO! Who needs you?
LOTS of other people would APPRECIATE this great life changing opportunity.
After all... it is not just about money,
but, about LOSING weight and bettering a person.

just watched last night - just shows you how dumb they are - cond get's every one to thrown the weigh in - but they do it by eating bread all week!!! - if you want to throw a weigh in - you drink a gallons of water the day of weigh in - so it's temporary, then next week you get a huge weight loss since - compared these guys blew their diets and will have problems now - hopefully conda -
