It’s a New Year and a new season of The Biggest Loser. And we couldn’t be more pumped! Last night we got to meet a bunch of new contestants, and in typical BL fashion, this season is trying to one-up last season by featuring heavier and heavier contestants (that has to stop sometime, right?!). And then there’s the drama and game-play of the introduction of the “Unknowns” (name still cracks me up!), two mystery trainers who are training half of the group in exchange for four free weeks of immunity. Oh the craziness!
While many in the Twitterverse were dying to know who these new trainers were last night, our bet is that we won’t find out for a few weeks. Although we have our guesses as to who they might be (especially since Jillian won’t be joining the cast for The Biggest Loser season 12).
While the premiere definitely wasn’t short on the drama department, it was also incredibly heart-warming and featured some really honest and tear-jerking discussions about the contestants’ weight gain (The twin cops? Pass the tissues!). Again, the show never fails to inspire and send the message to America that no matter where you are, you can always change.

What did you think of last night’s premiere? Any one contestant stand out? —Jenn
