'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 feel like this group, especially some of the younger ones, Conda, Kim, couple of the younger guys, are playing for the camera.

I think their bullying makes them feel big and bad and they let being on TV get to their head, so now they think they are super starts.

They have lost sight of the REAL reason for being there, changing their lifestyle to live in a healthier way and save their lives, being role models for their children.

Instead they are acting like high school mean girls and cliques bullying and alienating to get others to vote their weekly target/victim off.

I honestly can say I don't have one contestant I am rooting for. I did like Santa Claus, but his wife conforms with these mean girls, and it all is just unreal to see their sense of entitlement as if they think they are STARS for being on TV.

I cannot believe Bob is putting up with it, but guess he does not see anything with them outside the gym, they are showing they all are not very nice people, and no one is even trying to learn better ways to deal/cope/adapt with others and stress/changes/twists in their life, instead they lash out, find a scapegoat, and bully.

Not a one of them is showing class or taking the high road.

Send them all home, they are ungrateful.

This has nothing to do with Conda and that bunch. That season has been in the can for months. It's the summer season they're taping now.

let them walk. They sure as hell aint running off the show. Then bring back the ones voted off to take their place. Im sure they would appreciate the second chance. At it would teach that fatty Conda that your not in High school any more. If they walkeed then kepp them off. This show is not about the money.

Most of this season's contestants lack the likeability factor. Never have I seen so many rude, self-centered, immature drama queens and kings.

Let their fat asses go home! This is a reality show and they are getting the best chance to lose a lot of weight. This is the laziest group that they have had on the show, send them home.

Biggest Loser has always brought back contestants who were voted out for a second chance to get back into the game. This is far from a new twist. I also think this is the worst group of contestants they have ever had. They are a bunch of whiners and Conda is a WITCH! She is by far that worst person ever to be on the show. I hope all that walk off are replaced by those who were voted out because someone didnt like them instead of they didnt have the weight loss. Bring back the people who want to be there and send this bunch of pathetic losers home.

The producers bring back the contestants who were voted off and are dieting at home, as they were more determined to lose weight and seemed as if they were going to lose more than the actual winner of the show anyway which would have been an embarrassment because this "Conda Cult" that remains don't deserve to be there, so let them go THAT WOULD BE PERFECT because they are drag on the show. Conda, Kim and the rest of their co-horts are horrible individuals who do not deserve to benefit from the show at all, the voted off the good people for their petty purposes when it's they who don't deserve to be there.

Save this season of The Biggest Loser by letting those contestants that walked off the show go (like Conda, Kim, and the rest). Lock the doors, keep them out. Instead bring back normal people, the people that these awful people sent home, like Santa, Daphne, Adrian and others that were sent home, any of them would be better than Conda, Kim and their crew.

I watch The Biggest Loser an d some of the twists are just down right stupid like last night when Daphnie put Conda on the black team and Conda's Brother Jeremy on the red team and at the end of the of the show she admitted she did it for revenge cause the red team sent her brother home, I wanted to be on that show and tell her Hey stupid people get kicked off of this show all the time Your Brother did not lose much weight so they sent him packing so there was no point of you putting Conda on the Black Team and Jeremy on the Red Team, and what happen last night Daphney went home just like her brother did. Thank God I did not like bother of them.

Doesn't surprise me. They whine about everything. The show has the right to do as they see fit. The contestants should have no say in it. Let them all walk. Bring back everyone who has been voted off. No love loss here. I can't wait for the day Conda is gone. She has caused so many problems that other people have had to pay for. I would love to see the prior contestants come back. Btw, the show is going downhill. I watch to get ideas for exercising and nutrition. The show has become so much about drama that it's becoming too stressful for me to watch.

I have watched this show from it's beginnings. This season has produced more people who seem NOT to be there for the purpose of bettering their health and lives. There has been more whining, complaining, backstabbing and unnecessary meanness than even a season titled "no more excuses" seems to warrant. While they have had disruptive, manipulative contestants in the past, Conda is by far the worst example of someone not wanting to change behavior and encourage others to join her and forget why THEY are there. It would not surprise me if Conda was the spurhead for this latest situation. Losing weight is a battle that is a serious condition for many of us...but, this season I have felt shame for the few 'losers' that got the opportunity to get help and squandered it.

Showing them walking off will be the HIGHLIGHT of this season what a bunch of ingrates. Just learning to eat and workout while getting paid should be enough . I tune in and always have to flip channels when they flash that face of Conda.This is the worst season ever.

This season is completely immature, too much drama and not about what the show used to be. Cancel it already. Jillian was the reason i watched it. I liked her no nonsense. Bob is annoying me this year.

Not a one of the contestants left INSPIRE, they just whine, bully, complain, and want the money and weight loss handed to them.

They don't represent any inspiration at all, those who were inspiring they targeted and bullied off the show.

I have always liked this show and seeing how the contestants come alive the more they lose weight it seems the more the light in their eye comes back and the spark to fight for their lives is ignited, but not this season, this season they are just malicious, mean, and so full of histrionics and excuses it is just off-putting.

Let them all walk off the show, sue them for Breach of Contract after and bring back the contestants that were sent home, who would be grateful for another chance and make the most of this opportunity, the trainers and this process.

Conda, Kim N., Jeremy, Cassandra, Chism, Emily, even the older Christine acts a mean girl and chronically complains, maybe they should look inward int heir life as to why their behavior took them to the unhealthy life they have now and the weight gain, these bullies can kick rocks!

Bring back Daphne, Adrian, Nancy, Roy, Mike and Lauren instead!!!!!

they usually bring them back have them do the challange and the winner of the challange gets to stay for the rest of the season...sounds like the drama queen Conda influenced the rest of them to walk off...kick her off cuz if she says "like" one more time and crys im gonna punch her...lol
