After a longer-than-usual break between seasons, the return of NBC's weight-loss showdown, "The Biggest Loser," is now just weeks away. But season 14. premiering January 6th, won't be the same old battle of the bulge.
In addition to the usual assortment of grownups looking for a way to change their lives, this time, three teens -- ages 13 to 16 --will join the game. But unlike the adults, the teens won't participate in weigh-ins and they won't be subjected to elimination. Instead, they'll tackle childhood obesity by helping themselves and inspiring others. Dr. Joanna Dolgoff, a pediatrician who specializes in childhood obesity, will also join the reality competition to help the kids follow a program that best suits them.
