'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.

holy haters! i went and looked at the nbc discussion board for BL - omg conda is the most hated person on this planet! - by me too - every one there is saying they hate conda and kim and all their bullying - and tons of posts of ppl saying goodbye and refusing to watch - even though they were loyal 12 season fans - i bet the producers finally got the message and are scrambling to save this season - bet if conda walks - there won't be any one chasing her except nbc atty's suing her for breach of contract!

The Aussie version always brings back eliminated contestants ... so instead of the remaining contestants just being fat, they turn into fat whingers!!

None of these people on this season have a damn backbone. They let that fat c*** conda run them. And the producers should say to hell with em because they're nt serious about losing weight because if they were they could careless. Let all them fat asses go and just up the reward money 500k to the ones that are serious in losing weight n being an inspiration.

Dolvett and Conda need to leave the show, Dolvett for calling out Dephne during the weight in and Conda for being such a Bitch. Who is next on the "Drama Queens" hit list.

I thought they got on biggest loser to lose weight. they are more worried about the money. its not like they havent bought back eliminated contestants on previous seasons and they didnt cause an uproar about it. I guarantee Conda is beihind the uproar. this season of contestants are just so immature thats the problem.

Disappointed    

Let them leave! Save the money, or give it to the person who didn't walk off (including those who have gone home) who has lost the most percentage. You are the producers, don't you have back up plans for when things like this can happen. No one likes this season anyway because of the bullying and horrible behavior. The show has stooped to the level of reality tv shows that it never was at. I stopped watching two weeks ago and won't let my daughter watch it. She is being bullied at school (Elementary) and I will not allow her to see that it is OK and CONDONED to bully anyone. Disappointed in this season and I say let them leave. You probably already have next season's contestants anyway. Or give others who have been denied the chance (in the audition process) to come on by a surprise phone call!

The show officially jumped the shark this season, everyone is nasty to each other and the show is no longer heartwarming and inspirational.

Enough Already    

Let me quess. The conspiracy to walk out on the show originated with the supposed leader, the stir-the-pot CONDAcending, evil, two faced, most toxic person to the house AND the show itself CONDA?!?!?!?!?! Let 'em all go, the ungrateful biotches and bastards. This truly has been one of the most disheartening seasons of the B.L. EVER!!!!! If everyone in that house continues to kiss the ass of that disease spreading Conda, the there is another shows deleted from the DVR. Seriously...whatever happened to decent TV??????????? *SIGH*

The show producers should let the contestants walk because it is your show, not the contestants. For the people that have been voted off already, have a finale and prize for them only. The contestants shouldn't have the right to tell you how to run your show. They're receiving the best medical care, the best food, the best instructors all to lose weight and free to them. Anyone else would like to be in their shoes. Let them all walk off. We won't miss them.

I agree whole heartedly with terry b, Mauree, Disappointed, Robert, Enough Already. Too many toxic, immature and rude contestants left. This has been the most disrespectful group towards one another. The Biggest Loser contestants have watched too many Reality TV shows.

Walking off proves how big their egos are. They've got some dilusional idea that the show needs them, when the truth is they need the show more. Well,I'd let them all go if they want. And, I'd bring back those that were voted off who want to come back. Contrary to what they think, they ALL are replaceable!

This is a bad combination of contestants this year. And, they're not only losing viewer support, but also their respect (which is worse IMHO.)
