We're Back... And So Is Jillian
January 6

It's a new season at the ranch with new players, new temptations, new twists, new turns, a new problem of childhood obesity, and ... one old face.

Thousands applied, but only 15 will be chosen. Who will they be? Let's find out RIGHT NOW.

First up, three... kids.

- Sanjana "Sunny" Chandrasekar (16): Rochester, NY; high school junior
- Noah "Biingo" Gray (14): New Windsor, MD; 8th grader
- Lindsay Bravo (13): Fillmore, CA; 7th grader

What, you were expecting maybe Kim Lyons? These are the first three contestants of this 14th season. They will visit the ranch during the season, but they will spend the most of their time working out at home. AND ... they cannot be eliminated.

Now to meet the trainers. Bob will work with Biingo, Dolvett gets Lindsay, and Jillian gets to take on the challenge of Sunny.

Now WHO WILL JOIN THESE SIX? Let's find out. Fifteen keys to the Biggest Loser Gym. They go to...

- Danni Allen (25; 258 lbs); Wheeling, IL
- Jackson Carter (21; 328 lbs): Layton, UT
- Nikki Davis (26; 280); Chatsworth, CA
- Michael Dorsey (34, 444 lbs); Baltimore
- Pam Geil (43; 237 lbs); New York
- David Jones (51; 307); Kiefer, OK
- Cate Laughlan (27; 237); Ransomville, NY
- Gina McDonald (47; 245); Birmingham, AL; attorney
- Nathan Montgomery (25; 359 lbs); Colorado Springs, CO
- Francelina Morrillo (25; 267 lbs); Albany, NY
- Jeff Nichols (24; 388 lbs): Monroe, MI
- Joe Ostaszewski (43; 364): Williston, FL
- TC Pool (30; 376 lbs): Albany, OR
- Lisa Rambo (26; 246 lbs): Hudson, WI; special education assistant
- Alex Reid (24; 240): Carrolton, TX

Now for team assignments...

RED (Dolvett): Lindsay, Francelina, Joe, Lisa, Jackson, Cate
WHITE (Jillian): Sunny, TC, Nathan, Nikki, Pam, Danni
BLUE (Bob): Biingo, Michael, David, Gina, Jeff, Alex

In the BL Gym... before & after shots. Talk about motivation. We have the technology. We have the equipment. And thanks to Planet Fitness, everyone in the house gets a free membership.

First rule... do not touch the treadmill. Meanwhile, Dolvett has the task to training the kids in a little baseball. They only get the ranch for a week. Jillian is at the treadmill "building soldiers". And man down. And another. And yet another. And perhaps out, as Jackson is unresponsive. Turns out that most of the players are falling like flies.

Dolvett trades out with Bob to work on the kids, while Dolvett gets back into hardcore beast mode time.

CHALLENGE AMERICA: The Biggest Loser is going online. Go to BiggestLoser.com to join the challenge and perhaps win a trip to the live finale.

Did we mention Jillian Michaels is back, and she's taking no prisoners? Actually, she's taken three already. And she's putting them on notice: go hard or go home.

Back with the kids, it's more or less introducing them to a healthier lifestyle, inside AND out.

At the end of day one, everyone is dog tired. Cate comforts Nathan after his initial fallout, saying that if he changes his thought process and gets up every time he falls, he'll survive.

CHALLENGE #1: Have a Ball

In a ballpit are letters you need to spell "THE BIGGEST LOSER". It's up to Sunny, Biingo, and Lindsay to tell the adults where to find the letters... from sky high. Winners of this challenge wins a 5 pound advantage going into the weigh-in.


The kids are sent off of the ranch for the time being, but they'll be back from time to time. So stay tuned. Meanwhile, enjoy these two bikes, an iPad, and a Biggest Loser workout prize back including the Wii game. That'll be a big help.

LAST CHANCE WORKOUT TIME! No one wants to be the first person to walk out the house. No talking. No nonsense. Just work.

And of course at least one person power-puking. Jackson. Gina says that she's got a target on her back because she's the oldest. She's the weakest. And she's gotta get out of this box she's put herself in. As for the guys on the white team, they're finally starting to dig deep. Can Nikki do the same? It looks like she's all but given up... and she decides to walk out on the competition. "You cannot help somebody that doesn't want to be helped."

Bob thinks that she's coming back. Jillian... yeah, no. Nikki's not ready. And the White Team is not ready to face that reality that someone ELSE may be next.


Tonight, there is no yellow line. There's going to be a RED line, and the person with the lowest percentage weight loss on the losing team is going home.

TC: 361 (-15)
Pam: 227 (-10)
Nathan: 339 (-20)
Danni: 239 (-19)
LBS LOST: 69 (5.61%)

RED (needs to lose more than 80 lbs)
Lisa: 230 (-16)
Jackson: 306 (-22)
Francelina: 248 (-19)
Cate: 225 (-12)
Joe: 338 (-26)
LBS LOST: 95 (6.59%) - SAFE

BLUE (needs to lose more than 91 lbs)
Jeff: 359 (-29)
Michael: 423 (-21)
David: 287 (-20)
Alex: 231 (-9)
Gina: 230 (-15)
LBS LOST: 94 (5.79%) - SAFE

That means that the White Team is going to face the Red Line.

1) DANNI - 7.36%
2) NATHAN - 5.57%
3) PAM - 4.22%
4) TC - 3.99%

A stunned silence as TC Pool, a man who has been trying out for this show for the last three years, is eliminated on week one.

EPILOGUE: Since TC's elimination, he's lost an additional 41 pounds, playing with his kids and not running out of breath. He had to push all those negative thoughts to the side, but he is well on his way to fulfilling his promise to his family. He remains committed to weighing in at 245 or better by the finale. We wish him all the best.

Stay tuned, kids. The journey begins for the 16 that remain. And as hard as the trainers push, the players will push EVEN HARDER.
