NBC’s The Biggest Loser Season 17 will see the return of its 16 contestants for a special reunion. Before the winner will be declared, these contestants have a chance to weigh in one last time on the show’s season finale airing Monday, February 22 (9-11 p.m. ET).
According to Grapevine, the latest episode aired last February 15 disclosed contestants Roberto Hernandez, a physical/health/driver?s education teacher from Burbank, IL; and Stephen Kmet, a pharmaceutical sales recruiter from Hainesport, NJ, as two of the three finalists who will be competing for the grand prize of $250,000.
However, audience will have to wait for the third finalist whose name will be disclosed during the grand finale. The third finalist can either be car dealership salesman Colby Wright of K?Ville, GA or Stephen?s wife, high school counselor Jacky Kmet.
According to Courier Post Online, talking about maintaining workouts and healthy diets, Jacky Kmet opined her thoughts about the final results. ?For me, it wasn?t about TV at all, it was about the experience,? she said, adding ?I had an extraordinary experience there.?
As soon as the name of the third finalist is disclosed in the finale, there will be a new twist for the final three contestants that will raise the stakes even higher in the competition as the current season nears an exciting end.
All 16 contestants who started as a group of eight (one pair in one group) will weigh for the last time and reveal all the weight they?ve all lost since the beginning of the episode. The eliminated participants will compete for the $100,000 “at home” prize. Then, one of the three finalists will be named Biggest Loser of Season 17 and will win the grand prize of $250,000.
Biggest Loser is produced by Endemol Shine North America and 25/7 Productions. Its team of executive producers is comprised of Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, Eden Gaha, Alex Katz, Joel Relampagos, Michael Brooks, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson.
The winner will be announced tonight on Biggest Loser Season 17 finale that will air at 9 p.m. You can watch the full episodes of Biggest Loser on NBC.com’s official show site: ?
