Report: ‘Biggest Loser’ Contestants Leave Show in Protest

George Doyle/Stockbyte/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Producers of the NBC series The Biggest Loser have a lot weighing on their mind.

TMZ.com claims nearly all of the contestants who remain in the hunt for the $250,000 grand prize this season have quit the weight-loss show for the time being. The reason: the contestants discovered that producers are thinking of inviting previously-eliminated contestants back into the competition.

The current contestants, who reportedly don't like the idea of giving the others a second chance at the jackpot, left the show while shooting an episode.  As a result, production has been shut down for at least a week while producers figure out how to proceed.
