'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 have watched every season of this show and this group of people are the biggest whiners ever. They are all focused on the money and not the reason they are there....time for this show to take a rest I think

Let them walk off. I think they should then replace each person who walks off with someone who was voted off and still wants to participate. Being there is not a right there are plenty of people who can benefit from what they are given.

Here is the solution NBC, and I certainly hope you read this, send all of them home, bring all the old contestants back.......that way the whiners that currently make up whats left can learn what it's like when you treat others like crap

they do this every single year..there is always a twist.they always let someone that has been voted off come back for a second chance...it is how The first female winner did it...she was voted off, went home, busted her ass, got back on the show and then WON the whole thing...these contestants are either the biggest babies they have ever had...or they have never watched this show before

Reminds of of Vicky and Heba from a few seasons ago...bitter, mean girls who showed no compassion or support for anyone but each other.

Hey, this is a competition. The producers find ways to set up potential stressful situations between the contestants. It's a show. They want ratings. It's all about the profit. This is not brain surgery. That said, and apart from "the Conda problem", I thought Daphne acted like an arrogant, obnoxious bee-otch, and her behavior did not reflect well on her. Even SHE said she wanted to get even. OK, so good-by, Daphne. Have a nice life. Happy now, Daphne?

With all the drama and unlikable contestants left on the ranch, I think this would be a good thing! Most of the ones eliminated so far were the victims of a bully and her band of zombie followers! Most of them had good weight losses, but were targeted by the beeotch and her crew!!!

I hope one of the contestants that walks off is Conda, she is a total B>>>>!!!!If I were one of the contestants and she talked to me like she has others on there, I would have 'jack'slapped' her into next month and then left b/c the producers would have thrown me off anyhow.

Thoughts?? Let them walk. They are suppose to be in this to change their lives for the better and get healthy. They are obviously looking for a reason to give up. They have been given an opportunity of a life time and if they don't see it that way ask them to move on and make room for those that want it. None of them are setting the world on fire with their weight lose so they can't be doing what others in the past have. It's not like they paid to be there, what right do they have to say how the show should be run. Even last night with the challenge, regardless of who ate what, never have we seen such a horrible display of humanity. This years contestants are a disgrace.
