'The Biggest Loser' season preview: I'm gaining interest (har!)

PopWatch confession: There is nothing I love better than watching weight-loss-slash-makeover-slash-total-holistic-and-physical-transformation shows — The Biggest Loser,What Not to Wear , even that super creepy one for a while where renewed self-esteem = massive amounts of possibly life-threatening plastic and dental surgery (The Swan?).

The confessional part is how I like to watch them: disheveled, avec tragique hair-bun, couch-prone in my most elastic-waistbandy house pants — and always, always eating (Trader Joe’s jalapeno olives from the jar! Tofutti Cuties! Indiscriminate bowls of carbs! I don’t care!).

That’s why, when the new sneak preview for The Biggest Loser — which bows Tuesday, Sept. 16 — debuted today on NBC’s website (and embedded below), visions of gloriously wasted, semi-horizontal hours to come danced in my head. Honestly, I don’t have TiVo, so the two-hour runtime sometimes exhausts me (eating that many olives is hard) and I just end up tuning in for bits here and there until the final-episode skinny-payoff bonanza. But I’m definitely intrigued by this “Second Chances” theme; sweet house pants, I heed your call!

But you tell me, readers — will you be tuning in? And what delicious polyblend ensemble will you be using as a giant lap-napkin for your Fiddle Faddle- crumbed fingers while you do?

    The preview isn’t showing up for me. But I think the bigger question is how you get away with working at EW and not having a Tivo, or at least a DVR. The Biggest Loser goes so much faster when you can zip through the commercials and the opening 30 seconds back from commercials that recap what just happened. And through the beeping of the scale. I can watch the two hour episodes in about 45 minutes to an hour. And not miss a thing.

    I’d heard that they were bringing back a contestant from last season, and I’m glad it was Daniel. His partner Dave obviously didn’t want to be there (smoking and eating fried chicken? Really?), so Dan never really got a chance on campus. I hope he does well!

    I swear to God, I have the same story as the first girl in the clip… 19 years old, almost 300 pounds, never been on a date. Maybe that’s why they didn’t take me on the show, even though I tried out TWICE!!!!

    I think that Carla from The Biggest Loser 7 should be given another chance. Only a few of the eliminated contestants had a chance to return for the Biggest Loser. I would like to see Carla on the Biggest Loser 9. People have done her wrong.
