Well, you can!
The final weigh in for the series (?) set in the Victorian town of Ararat is set to occur on Sunday, 21st of July at 8.30am. If you’d like to attend (and maybe win $5,000 cash!) and can make it to Ararat Town Hall you need to email tbl.audience.vic@shineaust
I would assume tickets are limited but without knowing how large their Town Hall is I couldn’t say just how big the gathering might be.

Monday 24th of June – that’s this coming Monday – The Biggest Loser will be back!
Kinda. It’s a special episode airing 8.30pm (check your local guides) where the trainers, host and some special guests will take a look back at some of the most impressive transformations in the show’s history.
Special guests are listed as: Hayden Quinn (Masterchef?), Cameron Daddo (A Daddo!), Kyly Clarke (I have no idea!), Chris Brown (Bondi Vet), Deano and Hoppo (Bondi Rescue).
This may feature some catch up material with some former contestants, though that’s not stated anywhere. Suspect it will mostly be some chats with various Channel 10 personalities mixed with old footage, but you never know.
Currently I am not planning to write a recap for this. Though I may have some thoughts to express afterwards. :-)
Filming for the next season (?) of the show is already under way in the rural Victorian town of Ararat, according to The Ararat Advertiser.
The Biggest Loser crew, including the three trainers, will be going to Ararat to bring the healthy living knowledge hammer down upon the community, with plans to set up support groups and weekend workshops for people to attend if they want to get involved. There’s no casting call as such for those events, if you live in the area and are interested you can just rock up and take part.
There’ll also be a core group of locals, probably around 20, taken up to Camp Biggest Loser in Sydney to do the “intensive course” contestants on the show are used to. It’s unclear whether there’ll be eliminations involved in this, could make town life a little awkward if so?
The plans for this series seem to be aimed at some of the criticisms of the show, where people complain there is little support for contestants upon their return home. People like personal trainer Andrew Meade. I’m sorry, “former personal trainer on The Biggest Loser” Andrew Meade.
I’m not sure being the PT production hired for one of the eliminated contestants back in the second season really qualifies you as being on the show, but whatever.
With filming of The Biggest Loser: Ararat having begun in April and a 12 week timeline for their stay in the country town, we might just see The Biggest Loser again this year, potentially right after Masterchef finishes it’s second outing of the year.
Colour me excited!
Previously on The Biggest Loser… oh, I don’t know, THE ENTIRE SEASON. The finale is finally here!
Tonight the top three teams weigh in for the big prize, the other teams weigh in for the also-ran prize and we see how spiffy they look after dropping a bunch of weight.
Or how terrible they still look because they slacked off on the outside!
The top three teams are Gerald and Todd, the “Battlers from Bendigo”. Robyn and Katie, the “competition powerhouses”. And King Richard and his daughter the Fat Princess Amber. Who will win? Find out in like 80 minutes of drawn out reminiscing!
Looks to be a lot of green support in the crowd, good to see!
Previously on The Biggest Loser it was time to train the trainers for the contestants after spending the week gallavanting around the land of the hobbits.
Tonight it’s time for payback. The trainers will be taking the contestants out for a late night training session at a quarry with lots of hoses hosing them down as they go. Good fun!
Richard and Amber have immunity at the elimination so the other three teams are fighting amongst themselves. Orange say they’ve still got Blue’s back, but has Blue got their’s? It sounds like Richard may be planning to leave them in the dust, if it comes to that…
But first a shot of the mooooooooooooon. I like the moon. :-)
