Our Thursday nights will not be consisting of NFL football this fall, as NBC has brought back The Biggest Loser 2014 for an early fall edition and 20 new contestants will face off on The Biggest Loser Season 16 for that $250,000 prize and a second chance at life. The Biggest Loser: Glory Days brings us former athletes trying to get back into their old, healthy bodies. Big changes on The Biggest Loser 2014, so check out the details (and meet the new cast) below in our Biggest Loser 2014 spoilers!
