'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 agree with the contestants. They should not have to compete with the previous bunch. They signed up to compete with those that are on their show. The producers need to pay off the previous contestants and go with their original cast for this season and let them play it out. Dumb move producers, dumb move. Maybe the producers need to lose a little fat in their heads.

This story pisses me off! This entire season - these people have been so ungrateful and hateful. Are they here to win money or or there here to lose weight? There are so many people who would love to have the opportunity to be on the show so they could get control of their lives. These contestants have been so ungrateful, backstabbing and immature this season. If next season is anything like this one, I wont be watching anymore. Yes its good TV, but they are wasting space for people who would appreciate being there. Conda is the worst cast member of them all. She is so disgustingly hateful. I say if they dont like the twist the show has to offer, that they do boycott and let the people who want to be there back in the house.

Let them all go and go film the contestants who've been voted off. Has to be the biggest bunch of immature babies ever on a tv show. Conda (big as a condo) is the laziest, whiniest, most stupid person I've ever seen. Nothing gets through to her. Nothing is her fault. When someone's pointing out a fault you can see her beady little rat eyes trying to think of an excuse or someone to blame. Let them go home!

This is the worst season. These people are complainers and so annoying. We usually can't wait to watch each episode, but this season we are two shows behind. That hateful girl AnaConda should have been gone, I think she is the root to a lot of it. Someone like that is poison and it spreads. Good riddance to all of them. I hope the producers stand their ground.

Yes, please quit. They are the whiniest bastards ever. Darn those producers and trainers for giving them the golden opportunity to lose weight that would otherwise kill them.

Give me a break, losing weight is not a talent.

I completely support the revolt. Too often on reality shows, people are set up and the cameras catch their response for us to laugh at, jeer at, or just feel superior to in general. Good for them sticking together and not having it!

Why would any one sit and watch this? A bunch of over weight people get screamed at by a bunch of skinny people and they go with out food. As I said - why would any one watch this let alone care? I have 125 channels and still have nothing to watch.

I bet Conda led the revolt. She is such an unhappy, bitter, hypocrite!

I don't think this is the group that's currently on tv. They tape the show months in advance. The finalists go home for several months before the finale. This group will probably air next season.

I don't understand why NBC is even stopping production for a week. Oh, I'm sorry you don't want the chance to win $250,000 on top of getting to stay at a resort with state of the art equipment and trainers? Great, because there are literally millions of people who would love to take your place! Also, Biggest Loser always has "twists" and 99% of the time it has to do with eliminated players coming back. Where have you been for the last however many seasons? If NBC has any balls they'd send them all home and bring back all the eliminated players to complete instead!

fire them all... most of the stupid idiots are so close to death and they are worried about money...

they should pay the show 500k each to thank them for what they couldn't do on their own..
