Filming Has Commenced! New Location!

Even more news on season 10 of The Biggest Loser Australia today with the reveal of a new filming location and the start of the journey for potential potatoes.

This year sees the show return to Duffys Forest, though sadly not to The White House. The new location looks a little less grand but the grounds sound more suited to the show, with paddocks, a dam, pool and tennis court. According to the planning proposal the trainers will also be living on site this year, rather than coming and going each day. Which could be interesting!

Filming is due to wrap by the end of June, according to The Daily Telegraph, but no air date has been set. Probably some time after Masterchef, which also doesn’t have a date but will probably start once My Kitchen Rules finishes, so it can’t get clobbered in the ratings again!

New host Fiona Falkiner has already been put to work and shared a selfie from the set, where she was getting glammed up for something or other. See the picture here.

Must not get too excited yet, the show isn’t coming any time soon!

Tiffiny Returning For The Biggest Loser Australia 2015

Confirmed via an official Facebook post, Tiffiny Hall will be back when the show returns later this year.

Good news? Bad news? Did anyone really miss her or were Shannan, Michelle and Steve enough?

The Biggest Loser Australia Has A New Host In 2015

Alongside the news that this year will be another Families themed season, after the debacle that was Ararat, comes the departure of popular host and former Olympian Hayley Lewis. Hayley wants to spend more time with her family, more time on her new business and more time not being told she’s been replaced, I’d guess.

This year the show will be hosted by… Season 1’s Fiona Falkiner!

Since appearing on the show Fiona has gone on to have a successful career as a plus-sized model. Though she’s not as skinny as she was at the end of the show, she’s kept on top of her weight and maintained a much healthier lifestyle. And, well, she looks fantastic.

I may have had a wee crush on Fiona, so this season should be fabulous for me.

Look for the new season of Biggest Loser later on this year. Masterchef at least will air before it, which makes a lot more sense when you think about it.
