'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.

I am disgusted at the behavior of the contestants on America's Biggest Loser! As a person who has struggled with weight their entire life, it really "pisses me off" that these people are more about the money than being grateful for the opportunity to change their lives to a healthy one. I was already dissappointed at this show for what appeared to be racism among the shows remaining contestants against the two black contestants who were brought back. "Anaconda", as I like to refer to her as is a disgusting bigot. Her treatment and her constant lying about her behavior towards that guy and his sister really make me NOT want to EVER watch this show again. Now I hear that those very fortunate individuals are taking for granted a wonderful opportunity. I hope they all get what they deserve!!! NOTHING! Boo to America's Biggest Loser!

On the Biggest Loser this Season it seems like both teams are Prejudiceand thats not because i am black because i am white and i think if you was to put Dovet on a team and make him not a leader make him a player he would be gone in a second

I am very dissatisfied with this year's Biggest Loser. When someone is voted off the program, they should stay off the program. It has nothing to do with money or health or whatever. It has to do with fairness! Why should someone who is not benefiting by losing weight be able to come back again for a second chance or a third cance. When you're voted off, you're done!!! No exceptions.

Good, when the producers bring in a bunch of dramatic fat people and withold their food and make them do physical activity... what did they expect? Go back to casting less dramatic fat people.

I think the previous seasons of the Biggest Loser were better organized. They talked about the healthy foods to eat and how to cook the meals and the contestants were doing their exercises without drama. They are worried about who gets the best trainers. They are both good trainners and they are there to help and establish an exercise program for them to use when they leave, whether its voted off or winning. I also think if you are voted off there should be NO COMING BACK! Contestants should worry about getting healthy, learning a program that works for them, learning to eat right. Thats what should be first on their mind. Money is nice but you cannot spend and enjoy money without having a good healthly life.

This set of contestants ARE a bunch of complainers. They are mean also. They don't want to do what the trainers and the shows planners want them to do, want things on their own terms. BL has always been this way, they should have realized it. The producers ought to cut them out and bring back the last contestants to fill the others spots. They shouldn't let the show be held hostage for these spoilt people.

No matter how much weight Conda loses, she will still be an ugly bitch with the attitude of a 15 year old on the inside. Grow the **** up. Why she was cast for the show I will never understand.

No matter how much wait Conda loses, she'll be and ugly bitch on the inside. I'm 18 and my maturity is decades beyond hers. Why she was cast for the show I don't understand. There are so many people who deserve it more than she does.

I think the contestants that walked off should not be allowed back. What they should do is bring back all the contestants that have been voted off and let them finish off the season!! They came on here knowing it was a game...they don't make the rules, the producers do!!

it funny how all of those people wanted to talk all that stuff about Adrain and Daphne and how they want to do better and work harder, and stop takling and just listen, and then they want to quit.Let Daphne and Adrain go back because THE PEOPLE WHO QUIT don't want it as the aqua team wants it.

Haven't they ever watched the show? The eliminated players are usually given a chance to get back on. Look at Ramon. He won the marathon and was automatically in the top 3 at the finale. It is just part of the game and they should just deal with it.

I seriously loath this group of biggest losers. They are as ugly on the inside as they are on the outside. Conda is evil. I will be happy if they all walked off and were replaced by a new group.

I want them all to go bring back Adrian and Daphne the only sane ones on their. Dolvett can go with them. The worst season ever.
