'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.

Let them walk..they have done nothing but stir up drama and forgot why they are on the ranch. So what Daphne kept to herself about eating..it was supposed to be that way. But NOOOO these people needed drama once again. Conda and Kim should of been tossed by producers weeks ago..especially Conda she is all drama and oh my gosh such a whiner. Let them all go and bring back all that were voted off..the show would be better and saved. Have another season like this one and this show will be over. Its supposed to be about motivating and inspiring people not all this drama.

Apparently some of you can't read. This is not Conda's season that walked out. That finished taping a while ago. This is the new season taping for this summer.

I say kick them all off!! Don't take threats from this group of bullies. I think we all would be happier if they would just scrap this season and start with a new group of contestants. Why do these guys have such a problem with people being brought back and given another chance? It's happened in previous seasons without such problems, whining, crying and drama.

I hope NBC will decide to bring on the people they are considering bring on and let these mean spirited people just go. This group of people are the absolute worst group of contestants I've ever seen since I started watching this show. I don't want to see any of them win and in fact I've been thinking about not watching this season because of their hatefulness. One reason I love this show is because of the love the contestants begin to show for each other and how they are so willing to help each other out. Everyone of these people (except for the lady that is married to Santa Claus)left on the show this season are just mean and hateful and they deserve to stay in the conditions they are in. How could anyone not want to see people that are trying to become healthy not want them to get better. It is just so sad to see such evil people.

This is the worst season ever-- it's mean girls and don't know what kind of opportunity they have people. The show is missing Jillian. Some game playing is fun but this is beyond that and as a viewer it's not fun or interesting to watch--- toss all of them and bring back the people who got kicked off that want to be there.

I have wathced since day one and I have finally reached the end of my rope with the drama this year. Conda has completely ruined the show this year. Immature, spoiled, mean spirited behavior is what we are faced with each week. The way the people this year treat others is an embarrassment, and they get away with it! I am turning the channel until Conda is gone!!

They should consider themselves really fortunate to be able to partake of the program offered to them - and should work their butts off to express their humility and gratitude. They're put up at this "camp," fed, and have daily personal workouts with some of the best fitness instructors available FOR FREE. The prize should be a new body, not the cash - though that, of course, is nice too. What a bunch of spoiled entitled babies. Let 'em waddle off the show. There are hundreds who'd love to replace them.

think it has been stated by many BL fans that each and every season there has been some sort of comeback and twist. Its nothing new this season. They should just scrap this season and start fresh. Most of the people on the show dont deserve being there anymore.

Well. obviously none of them know how to be adults. An Conda is the one who needs to leave the show she is nothing but a child and obviously she is not ready to grow up and act her age, instead of her shoe size. As well as the rest of these litteral BIGGEST LOSERS THEY HAVE EVER FILLED THIS SHOW WITH! IT IS ALSO THE WORST SEASON I HAVE EVER SEEN!! HECK IF THESE GROWN ADULTS WANNA ACT LIKE THIS I SAY GET RID OF ALL CURRENT CONTESTANTS AND GIVE THE ONES WHO WERE ALL KICKED OFF THE REST OF THEIR GOALS ON THE SHOW AND FORGET THE REST OF THE LIL WHINEY TEMPER TANTRUM CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!! THIS SHOW IS MAINLY FOR GROWN UPS AND YOU LITTLE CHILDREN THAT ARE LEFT ON THE SHOW NEED TO GO BACK TO MOMMY AND DADDY AN LEARN TO PLAY NICE AND LEARN WHAT RESPECT AND MANNERS ARE. AN IF THEY WANT TO KEEP ACTING LIKE THIS THAN THE PRODUCERS BETTER GET THEIR HEADS OUT OF THEIR BACKSIDES AND BRING BACK THE ADULTS!! AN GET THIS SHOW BACK ON TRACK BEFORE THEY ALL HAVE NO JOBS TO GO TO!!!!!!!!!!

This won't be a huge loss considering this has not only been the season for No Excuses, but it has also been the season of no support; inspiration or actually wanting to watch the show.
