'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.

Good, let them all walk off and LET the door hit them in their ass as they go! The most vile, despicable cast EVER assembles. If NBC is smart they will read the blogs and realize how DISGUSTED the viewers are with all of these LOSERS. Most viewers claim they don't like any of the contestants and are trying to figure out which one they dislike the least to win. Bring back the ones who were voted off and let the others GO. Now that would be an excellent twist.

Effective immediately, I think that the producers should air a "Lost Footage" episode. In the meantime, they should gather up contestants who have been eliminated to finish out the season. If the producers need more time, they can do a, "Where Are They Now" episode or even show reruns. ANYTHING would be better than forcing Conda and Kim down our throats. They're a disgrace to what was once an admirable show. The second the producers cave to Conda and her cronies, a precedent will be set and mutiny will set in every season amongst the contestants. The heart of the show has been lost. Whether it can be found again is up to the greedy producers who made a serious misstep and read the audience wrong. We're not low-lifes like Conda and Kim! Quit insulting us and get back to basics, or we're done.

I was really happy to read that all these rotten contestants walked off the show...NONE of them deserve to be there! This has been the worst season of BL ever, with the contestants focused more on "the game" rather than losing weight and getting healthy. Hey producers, KICK THEM OFF THE SHOW and bring back other contestants who were kicked off due to manipulation, back-biting, with a little bit of racism thrown in for good measure. After what this bunch did to Adrian and Daphne, they don't deserve to be called competitors...they deserve to be called a-holes!

I think the Show is at fault. They bring these people in there to loose weight and then they show all types of temptations to bring conflict as they think it will make for good TV when the contestants are unhappy with another contestant. If they want the peple to loose weight then quit putting temptation in their way. I for one am going to stop watching as they will do anything to create discord among the contestants. I don't blame the contestants for being upset about bring back contestants. They work very very hard to loose weight and then someone that's already been voted off comes back - so unfair!

JwM--you have an excellent suggestion. This has been a GREAT show for 13 seasons, changed people's lives and inspired a lot more. There is no reason for this toxic group on there now to ruin the rest of the season for the viewers and fans. NBC, are you listening?

this is the WORST season of the show ever. For a season of no excuses, that's all you hear from these people. They may lose the fat, but they'll never lose the ugly on the inside, which is going to make them get fat on the outside again. as for the walkout... um... it's a GAME... games are VOLUNTARY. it's not like you're being forced to play. Don't like the game... there's the door, don't let it hit your ass on the way out. There are a lot of people who would love to be on that show whether there was a prize at the end or not. I don't even know why NBC or Producers of the biggest loser would want them back. EVERYONE hates the contestants this season. Especially Conda. They'd get more respect if they just ended the show for the season or brought back all of the cast that were voted out to replace those who are "protesting" the unfair treatment in a completely VOLUNTARY game. (God they're morons.)

Someone on Sucks posted: "Let them walk. Do not call their bluff. Take away any prizes already won. Kick them off the show. Don't let them compete for the at home prize or come to the finale. Keep anyone who wants to stay and bring back all the previously booted contestants who want to come back. Have a mid-season do over.
Serves them right."

This is 100% what they should do.

I think that they should be more concerned with losing the weight as that is the goal and ultimate pay, it is they are getting another chance at life and should be grateful for the show for helping WITH that being said...This show makes A LOT of money off of them and tells them one will win this and it is totally unfair to bring back other people who already were on the show and had the chance to win. Most of you seem more concerned with the fact that they are fat and shouldn't say anything like they aren't human, everybody has the right to stand up for themselves and be treated with respect.

Disappointed    

I as a regular viewer, am very disappointed with the turn of events on the show. Who wants all of the drama queens, send them all home and get those on that are there for the purpose of the show. The producers should be fired for what they did with the show this season. Very sad.

Love Daphne    

Grow up contestants; if Allison wanted to shed some light on the contestant that ate the most of anything she would have stated that in the room. It was anonymous. If you can’t accept that to bad! You were out smarted and you can’t stand it! You started it and Daphne finished it. You are lucky I was not there because I would have told you all to go to h e hockey sticks. No one owes you anything! Nothing at all! Get over it. You sound and act like little children. “Lets ignore her, Lets not speak to her” I can live with that, don’t speak who cares. Bob I am shocked you wanted Daphne to say something are you kidding. You normally do not put yourself in the middle but this time you are taking the wrong turn. Stay out of it, encourage your team and keep it moving. Daphne say nothing to those whinny behind contestants, you owe them nada! Mutiny whatever!

I HATE this season. They absolutely suck as people. What happened to the African American Bro/Sis combo was totally wrong. I cannot stand watching this show. They should be booted. And, Conda is a fat rhymes with Witch.
