'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.

Not possible, all but the live finale is in the can, there is no one left on the ranch. The final 3, Cassandra, Mark and Kimmy have already been selected and are awaiting the finale, NBC and the Biggest Loser are yanking your chain in order to get higher ratings.

they went on the show to get healthy-the money is definately motivation!!-i noticed that the contestants have not been as awesome as they used to be! i would be thrilled to have the chance to be on this show if i needed to money or not! - some peeps just thrive on drama-and the peeps around them get sucked into it as well-it only takes one person to create havoc--they should be humble, and have a good attitude-and NOT care if previous contestants come back! who care, thats what the show is about, competing! very childish indeed!!!!

Where did they get the contestants for this season! What a nasty bunch. They were so mean to Daphne and her brother and Conda is vile...let them walk off, who cares. I could not care less who wins this season.

Unfortunately it's probably not the season that we are watching now because that was filmed as I understand it about 3 months ago. I, for one, agree with every post about Conda and Kim. Conda has been an instigator since week 1. She is a horrible, nasty person and her followers are completely ignorant. The fact that the producers of the show allow that to continue is a shame and I probably won't be watching this show much longer. It's all about the drama not the weight loss anymore.

Rainee Drops hit it on the head. That person is the one who should be out of there. She has caused all the problems because of her devious actions and her mouth needs to be closed most of the time.

I don't think they should until the end like all the other shows. I have seen them all but 1 or 2 I don't remember them that well.

Everyone knows who the person is who instigated the protest. Once they walk off, they are off! If they've ever watched a previous episode, they would know the producers do something like this every season. Whiners and hateful personalities poison the group, I don't feel sorry for them, or think they should be given a second chance. The way they treated Daphne and Adrian from the get go, showed the country what they behave like on a daily basis, WHEW, who would want to work in a 9-5 with these people, raise your hand!

When are these people going to learn that when you sign on to a reality show they basically own you and can do whatever they want? The Biggest Loser has been on the air a long time and they have to think of new ways to keep things interesting...

Most of the contestants this season are not nice, they whine and moan and back stab every episode. Let them walk off and go back to their miserable fat lives and give folks who would appreciate this tremendous opportunity a chance.

I love the BL but this season has been hard to watch...Conda RUNS the show...everyone bows to her & does what she says...She's SO negative. If they walked off show, they are done just as the one guy did the 2nd week. Bring back all the voted off contestants to finish the season & let them have a chance to win the grand & at home prize. You walk off, you're done!

This season of BL has been the worst season ever!! Shame on all of you for allowing one person to totally destroy the whole premise of the show. Conda has been allowed to belittle contestants, and those contestants who have gone along with her, should all be asked to leave. I have watched this show from day one, but I now find it hard to watch. I don't believe I'll be watching it again!!

I used to enjoy the show but this season I have had a difficult time watching it. The only show I have enjoyed was the one that lasted just an hour (I believe due to the state of the union address). All of the other shows just had too much drama and now to hear this ... I won't watch many more episodes this season.
Comments about Conda are right on. She is immature and the leader of the mean girl pack. The show needs to get back to motivational stories about people that really want to improve themselves.

Personally, I’ve lost all respect for the Biggest Loser this season. It’s turned into a poor example of the Jerry Springer show. And Conda is pure evil and Kim is following in Conda’s footsteps, the evil is growing. I’m going to stop watching the Biggest Loser as of now and I hope that the world gets this message and stops watching the Biggest Loser. Maybe if ratings drop this show will go back to losing weight again or else this show needs to go off the AIR ASAP!
