'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.

That Conda beeatch needs to be thrown off the show. She's a vicious, vindictive, snivelling racist beaeaatch. She has caused all the drama so far and has completely lost the reason she is there for. Get real Conda - get some dignity back and accept all the responsibility for making this the worst year for the Biggest Loser - a show that one watched and were proud to see the effort that others were making to lose their weight. Also, the trainers should have nipped this drama in the bud when Conda and her brother first re-appeared. Shame on the black team for their disgusting showing this week. Get a life!!

Get rid of that snivelling, whining, vicious, racist Conda. What a beeatch. She has completely lost sight of what she is there for and is a control freak. As a matter of fact, get rid of all the ones that want to walk - if they are still able to - then they can go and stuff their faces some more. Who cares? Also, Bob and Dolvett should have nipped this in the bud when Conda got scared when Daphne and Adrian returned. Instead of being proud that they lost all that weight at home without benefit of trainers, she got scared that they might beat her. Poor selfish bitch. Hate her!! Let them walk and get new contestants and make them sign contracts to stay till and lose weight or off they go. Yes - get Julianne back and let someone pound some sense into these whiners and poor losers.

Conda has to be the trouble maker. She has to go. She has done nothing but run the other contentsants and be pure evil from day one. I have watched this show from day one and truly loved the inspirational storeis of people and their weight loss, but this season, I am done watching it until they get rid of Conda. That immature little girl has done nothing but complain and stab everyone in the back from day one. Is this show about weight loss (Conda has the lowest) or about how many people Conda can destroy with her mean, evil, nasty big mouth. If Conda walked off ( I hope) and they allow her back I am never watching this show again.

CONDA...........CONDA..........CONDA..........she has been nothing but a trouble maker and bully this season. I will bet 100 bucks she is the one who started this so-called mutiniy. Time for the show to cut her loose. She os not there to lose weight (she has one of their lowest weight loses), she is only there to boss everyone around and complain. If Conda is not gone, then I am done watching this show. I thought this was to be about helping them lose weight and get healthy, not about how much they can game play and win money and to hell with the weight lose. For a season that is to be about NO EXCUSES............Conda has nothing but excuses and complaints. SEND HER HOME

grow up grow up grow up. i use this show as inspiration in my life and also record it for a friend that does not get the show. this year i am sick to death of the way these people have acted. maybe they should be allowed to walk off and then people who really want to be there can be true inspiration. in years past the money factor hasn't played a part until the very end. you really felt that these people were there for the right reasons. perhaps those in charge need to take a look at how this show is handled and things need to change. obviously with the way these high school children have behaved this season they need to do a better job in choosing their contestants. sometimes its not always about ratings - they need to remember the original premise of this show and get back to basics.

Let 'em walk. They aren't the only fat people in the country who would love to have help losing weight.

Conda has been nothing but a drama queen/troublemaker since day one. I say cut her loose. I have watched this show every season it has been on and I have never seen anyone as immature, vindicative, spiteful and petty as Conda. I say let her go...it will only help the show!!

I have watched every season and I must say this is the worst season every for this show and it is a shame cause this show has done wonders for some people, changed their lives. I can't wait til this one is over cause it seems to me that none of them are serious. I hope Conga is one that left cause she is the biggest problem and her spot could have been used for someone who really wants to get healthier.

I stopped watching this program years ago. I don't like the little twists and turns and "if someone can do this, then they get to pick who goes home, etc etc. I know that the premise of the show is to motivate everyone to be competetive. I think that everyone who is chosen to be on the show, should stay on the show, right until the end. Years ago there were two young men, 20 yrs old if that, who needed so badly to be there, but, no, he was sent home for some stupid reason. And then of course, he had to stay all cheerful and I bet he was sick at heart and wondered what he was going to do now. I guess the people won't watch otherwise. There was a TV show on called "Large" - I think it was called that, these people were at a lodge or something, had trainers etc....it liked it much better that the Biggest Loser!

If you are bringing back contestants that were on this season fine, but not from previous seasons. They had their turn. I wish they would go back to seasons 1, 2, & 3. No twist just wiehgt loss.

I bet Conda and Kim are written all over this. I don't understand why them people are following them. Like who does that. They need to have their own mind and understand they are not on the show because they were healthy. They were on the show because they were obese and needed to lose weight. The money part should be just an added bonus.

If I was contestant and they told me they were bringing people back for a second chance I would be very upset too. There is money at stake here besides the weight loss.
I think this show and other so called contest like IDOl, X factor, Dancing and all those are very concerned about having a 'diverse' cast of participants.
Hey, Madison Avenue runs these shows and they want a diverse casts so they have all kinds of viewers watching those commercials.
Right now Loser is all white contestants. The sponsors have to be going nuts right now.
If I was a white contestant I would say, its a weight contest. You either lose weight or you go home. It has nothing to do with racism so why bring back people who played and lost the game already?
