An Inside Scoop on 'The Biggest Loser'

Have you ever wondered what it's like behind the scenes at The Biggest Loser? Well, we have the inside scoop from the show's executive producer, J.D. Roth. There were a lot of variables to deal with in the season's premiere, as the show hit seven different cities to give the chance of a lifetime to two out of three contenders. Here is what Roth had to say about shooting in each city (including Portland, a first for The Biggest Loser).


"We were really happy to partner with Ford this season, because of their commitment to breast cancer awareness and Race for the Cure, so we started off at Ford for our first challenge -- and we'll see more of Ford later in the season.

We had our hands full on a very hot day, because we had 550 people competing in the step-up challenge, not just the three competing to be on the show. Needless to say, a lot of focus went toward making sure everyone stayed hydrated and healthy."


"Everyone thinks of Southern California as being warm all year long, but when we shot at the beach in this episode it was absolutely freezing -- we actually had to edit a lot of the Jillian footage because she was shivering in every shot! And it was so windy, we had a hard time even hearing what Ali was saying!"
