8:30pm – Wednesday, August 1 on FOUR
Returning to our screens with two new trainers – tennis pro Anna Kournikova and fitness expert Dolvett Quince -The Biggest Loser enters its 12 th season on Wednesday, August 1 st at 8:30pm on FOUR. This season of The Biggest Loser, dubbed “Battle of the Ages”, will see Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quincewil join Bob Harper in changing the lives of 15 overweight contestants.
In the lead up to this week’s unmissable premiere, Anna Kournikova said that joining The Biggest Loser as a trainer was a “total role-reversal” for her, following her years of tennis training.
“It is definitely a very different experience,” Kournikova explains. “I was always the one being told what to do and followed instructions to the T.”
“This was the total role-reversal where I just told people what to do based on what I have learned [through my career] from the best nutritionists, sport psychologists, coaches, trainers and all those things.”
The tennis star says that she had chased the chance to be on The Biggest Loser because she wanted to share the knowledge she had learned through her tennis career with the contestants.
“For me the biggest draw was that I had all this knowledge and I live and breathe sports, nutrition, well-being and helping people – for me that was the perfect combination,” she says. The Biggest Loser’s new season will feature a “Battle of the Ages” theme which will see the contestants split into groups depending on their ages, with one group under the age of 30, another ranging from ages 30-49 and the final group over 50 years old.
Players will choose between Dolvett Quince, Bob Harper or Anna Kournikova as their trainer based upon the order in which they finish the first task.
Make sure not to miss this when The Biggest Loser returns to our screens on Wednesday, August 1 st at 8:30pm on FOUR.
