'Biggest Loser' Contestants

Throw Weight Around,

Threaten to Quit Show

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.

They bring people back every season. It's nothing new. If I was the producers, I'd give the finger to the people that walked out and bring back all the voted off people and finish the season with them.

A Huxley said "Experience is not what happens to you. Experience is what you do with what happens to you." I was appalled at the behavior I witnessed in last nights episode. What I witnessed was bullying in a very toxic environment, instead of an emphasis on healthy environment, healthy attitude, promoting assertive behavior and confict resolution. The producers, directors and trainers missed a valuable teaching moment for not only the contestants, but all who watched the show. I am very disappointed in how the entire situation was handled.

Seriously? These "losers" are going to quit because they're bringing back other contestants? Duh? Instead of applying themselves to "winning" the money by working to lose the weight they threatened to leave and golly gee the powers that be will just give them the money because they whined and walked out? LET THEM WALK! Bring back the ones who were voted off, at least they want to work for that money.

After last nights show I took it off my DVR to even tape. I watched this show to be inspired not to feel worse about people and life. What were the producers thinking...showing this group? Cruel, mean, self centered! I have watched all of the Biggest Loser seasons. but refuse to watch any left in this one. God bless Daphne and her brother, they were hood winked.

Conda is a trouble maker and acts like the bully and all the little yes people does what she says so they won't be next. But they will be next. Too bad they won't see this until their turn. Chris will be next!!!

I hope they all walk off. Send them all home, I've never seen a group of meaner people than this bunch. I think they've lost sight of what they're really there for. I'm done with this show, it's lost me as a viewer.

What a bunch of ungrateful pigs. They are just given a chance of a life time to have help losing years of abuse that they inflicted on their bodies. It just shows that they dont care if they are fat or not, they just want money. If I were fat and useless I would do this show for free.

I would bet money that Conda the Cow is behind this. The producers should not bring back the contestants who walked off. If anyone is left in the house, let them compete for the grand prize. I have stopped watching this season because I can't stand the drama that is allowed to go on.
