The Biggest Loser Season 15 Episode 12

The Biggest Loser  Season 15 episode 12 airs Tuesday January 14 2014 on NBC at 8 pm.

Dolvett introduces the players to Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who talks about his own “Second Chance” – this season’s theme – and works out with the contestants inside the spectacular Olympic Oval arena. Then the contestants get to compete in the sport of curling, after an introduction to USA Curling team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm. The fun continues at the base of the bobsled track, where words of motivation from USA Bobsled Team members Lolo Jones and Jazmine Fenlator get the remaining seven players fired up about the fast-paced sport.
