There are a couple well-known faces among the Season 17 cast of "The Biggest Loser" -- Richard Hatch, winner of "Survivor: Borneo," and Erin Willett, a Season 2 semi-finalist on "The Voice." As luck would have it, they are teammates.

But how will they do facing the Season 17 "Temptation Nation" theme, which is designed to help contestants deal with real-world temptations, ranging from food to money to electronic devices? At the "Biggest Loser" press day, the two tell Zap2it it's about shutting those temptations out and focusing on yourself.

"As much as your life can be crazy and there can be a lot of things in your way you have to take the time to focus on yourself," says Willet. "If you don't put yourself first then nothing's going to be able to change."

Hatch adds, "The one suggestion I'd make in doing that same thing, in focusing on yourself -- eliminating the distractions, figure out what it is you need to do and just start doing it. Just start doing it, whatever that may be."

"The Biggest Loser" Season 17 premieres Monday, Jan. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. The cast is below.
