'The Biggest Loser': Paying it forward in Season 10

Trio Has it been really been 10 seasons already?

Season 10 of "The Biggest Loser" gets underway on NBC Sept. 21. Many of this season's 21 contestants say The Biggest Loser Ranch located outside L.A. is truly their last-ditch effort to lose weight because they already tried and failed with another extreme -- weight-loss surgery. The theme for this season is "paying it forward," and trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels hope to encourage the players to take all they learn at the ranch back home with them in an effort to inspire their own communities.

As expected, there are twists and turns galore. In the first episode alone, Bob, Jillian and host Alison Sweeney, at right, travel to seven cities with a variety of fitness challenges, including a one-mile run and a 500 step-up competition. Hopefuls who finish first are guaranteed a spot in the ranch. As for the rest....

Yup, most of people are waiting for this season and like other season this season will also do good under the trainers Bob and Jillian. Good luck for all contestants.

Here's a great blog piece I read on The Biggest Loser - the mistakes the series is currently making - and how to get the show in shape for future seasons. It's written by a reality TV producer and is a really interesting read for both fans and non-fans alike...
