The Biggest Loser Temptation Nation - Season 17

Will “The Biggest Loser” be coming back to TV?

A new season begins Monday, Jan. 4. Bob Harper, long seen as a trainer on the show, is the new host. Dolvett Quince and Jennifer Widerstrom will be the trainers.

Original “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch and “The Voice” Season 2 semi-finalist Erin Willett will be among the contestants.


Harper replaces Alison Sweeney, who had been with the weight-loss competition since 2007; in various reports she said she was looking for new adventures (which included writing a novel) and that she thought Harper will be "great."
