'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.

Last night's show was a farce. 2/21/12. It made me sick to the point of not watching this season anymore. How grown people can act like a bunch of idiots. Get rid of Conda, she is the one causing all the trouble. Poor Daphne never had a chance. I hope all the rest of the contestents realize this is not high school, it is is about losing weight. An adult would have reached out to Daphne, a bunch of losers letting Condo take control.....forget it.

If they walk. they walk. Its a reality show that tries to help people while getting ratings. If the contestants walk, that will draw HUGE ratings, plus, it will save the producers $250,000! Its a win, win situation for the show!
I'm sure they have enough footage to put together enough "entertainment" to finish the season.
Can you say "Contract", people?

Conda and Kim have been bullies on that show, get rid of them. Horrible how they treated Adrian and Daphne (what Daphne did was not right either) but Conda and Kim are running the show and the contestants, even mouthing back to the trainers.

I think those two and two of the boys are the problems and now they have a pack of bullies on the Biggest Loser.

They knew this was a contest, as well as a gift, an opportunity to get their health back and lives back for their family.

Those acting like high school mean girls and being childish, this season is awful how these adults are acting.

To be that overweight they all have some psychological issues, and yet they are not dealing with them in their process.

Julienne Michaels would not put up with this nonsense and would call out their behavior and make them own it!

Get rid of the bullying ring leaders on this season, it's horrible. Almost racist how they targeted Daphne and Adriene. They victimized both of them ever since they got an opportunity to come on the show a month later, but because they both were not part of the group (the mean girl high school cliques), then they were ostracized and bullied into a corner, left trying to fight and defend themselves to multiple members.

So wrong, take the bullies off the show.

Smdh. They're an entitled bunch this season. I don't know why they're so stunned, bringing back old contestants happens every single season. They treated Adrian like he was some kind of criminal for coming back. I say force their hand and bring back whoever deserves to come back. No twist from past seasons is off limits. This is how the show works. Its seriously hard to root for anyone this season.

Bring Julienne Michaels back and make these high school acting contestants toss tractor tires for awhile until they own their behavior and get a taste of how they are treating others on the show.

Julienne would not put up with the bullying or histrionics this season, she'd call them out for it.

haha, brilliant! This will be the beginning of the end of reality television.
That's what happens when you hire amateurs to do the job of professionals.

let them go. This group sucks. This is the first season i have really not liked watching the show. In the past they have all been concerned with health and loosing weight but this year all they want is the money. Let them all go and bring back ONLY those that have been VOTED off. Tell the audience that the current contestants couldn't get over using excuses for everything.

When "I'm A Celebrity, Get me Out of Here" had Speidi constantly coming and going, they all too should have walked off the set instead of trying to look like nice, compassionate people. I don't watch this show but the contestants did the right thing. The former rejects do not deserve another chance. Go for a walk, eat some healthy food. Stop being such a lard ass. You need money to lose weight? Well then, you're a pathetic fool.

They've got a mean buntch in the house this season with Conda as the ring leader. It's hard to watch and wish the mean people well.

There is not a single one of this year's contestants left that is likable. Shut the show down and recast a new season. Let these whiners and complainers stay fat!

I love watching this show, but this season, there is not a single player that I'm rooting for. They are either nasty, mean people, (Kim, Conda) or just so passive that no one cares about them. (Kimmie, Buddy). In reading this, I know that Conda and Kim made it to this level as they whined about Adrian and his sister returning. Haven't they watched the show before? They don't get to determine the events of the show. Now, I don't even watch these people, but it's a train wreck, so I probably will watch, hoping that Kim and Conda don't win.
