The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 17 “End Zone”

The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 17 “End Zone” airs Thursday, January 22 2015 on NBC at 8 pm. In tonight’s episode, it’s the last week on the ranch for the final four contestants, and time to celebrate just how far they’ve come on their weight loss journeys. They’ll return to the Los Angeles Coliseum where their journey began for a challenge requiring them to put all of their lost weight back on and drop it incrementally at 16 stops as they did each week, while running up and down the Coliseum steps. The winner gets a cash prize plus a valuable weigh-in advantage when the stakes have never been higher. The finalists also watch emotional journey packages with their trainers, revisiting the memorable milestones of their time at the ranch. ‘Today’ show lifestyle and fitness correspondent Jenna Wolfe visits as guest trainer, leading the contestants while pregnant through an intense, ‘no excuses’ workout, while Bob Harper puts the other three trainers – Dolvett, Jennifer and Jessie – through an intense workout of his own. And season 15 contestant Ruben Studdard appears in a ‘Challenge America’ segment before the final weigh-in at the ranch reveals the three finalists of season 16 who will be competing for the grand prize of $250,000 and the title of ‘The Biggest Loser.’

It’s a magical night that also features a surprise live performance from popular singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw, performing his hit solo, “Fire.” Meanwhile, the made-over Comeback Canyon contestants are treated to emotional reunions with their loved ones separately, 15 weeks after leaving home. And the stakes have never been higher at Comeback Canyon, because this week’s weigh-in winner will be joining trainer Bob Harper in his long-awaited, surprise return to the ranch, bringing his Comeback Canyon champ to join the competition. And that’s not the only surprise awaiting the contestants at this week’s weigh-in.

Show Synopsis: Twenty former athletes, including NFL players and Olympic gold medalists, will aim to change their lives on the upcoming season of NBC’s hit franchise “The Biggest Loser: Glory Days,” premiering Thursday, September 11 at 8/7c.

The contestants will work with new trainers Jessie Pavelka and Jennifer Widerstrom, as well as veteran trainers Dolvett Quince and Bob Harper. Alison Sweeney will return as host.

The contestants are led by former NFL players Scott Mitchell (12 seasons in the NFL) and Damien Woody (two-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots), as well as Olympic gold medalist and former professional tennis star Zina Garrison. Other contestants striving for weight loss include former WNBA standout Vanessa Hayden, three-time Olympic gold medal softball player Lori Harrigan-Mack, and a mix of former college and high school sports standouts.

Season 16 of “The Biggest Loser” will also feature trainer Bob Harper in an exciting new role, giving contestants a second chance at life on the show. Just when the eliminated contestant each week thinks they are headed home, they will actually be whisked away to a secret location called “Comeback Canyon.” There, they will be trained by Harper, competing at a separate secret weekly weigh-in for the chance to return to the competition and a shot at “The Biggest Loser” title and $250,000 grand prize.
