Biggest Loser Season 7 on NBC January 6th 2009


One quick day after the finale’ of Season 6 the contestants for Season 7 have been announced.  The show started taping around the middle of September and hits the air Tuesday nights starting January 6th, 2009 at 8:pm est.

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then you may have received the ‘tweets’ I sent out earlier this year during the casting process stating that this would be the biggest and longest season yet!  And it turned out to be exactly true as this season will feature the largest female and the largest male contestant.  Other firsts include the youngest male, oldest couple, the largest overall cast, and the longest season.  And the contestants were really put through the ringer during the casting process to make sure that they are the most committed bunch of folk in Loser history.  Hopefully no slackers slipped through.  I can hardly wait for the new season.

And I can hardly wait to see Bob blow his top!  He has never gone off on anyone like this and it will be one for the history books!  He will have to do a lot of yoga after this day!


I must note that after never having open casting calls in the lovely state of Michigan before 2007, NBC now has picked 4, that’s right count ‘em, 4 teams from the Great Lake State in the last two Seasons: The sexy Purple team Amy and Shellay on Season 6 and 3 teams this upcoming season 7.

All the Michigan teams attended an open casting call for Season 6 or Season 7.  It may have taken them hours to be seen for only a few minutes but they are proof positive that it was worth it.  I am proud to say that Michigan has some awesome people with great personalities (yes I meant how that last sentence was written – it is a little inside humor 😉  Oh, and beside great people we have just a little girth!

Before I forget, you have got to watch the premiere.  I heard Jillian describe her shock at seeing one of the contestants at the weigh-in.  Oh yeah, your weight never bothers Jillian so tune in to see what is so shocking to her.  I will blog about it later. Oh, and how the teams were selected was neat as well.

Here are the contestants and their team colors and trainer – I reserve the right to correct this later in case I am wrong about any of it.  Also check the videos at the bottom from NBC.

  5. If you are in search of cool football team names, the best option is to
    note down names of most famous football teams, and alter them in a method you like.
    Great idea of cool and extravagant team brands is to make a note of names of all team members, select the initials,
    and create a word which seems unusual and at the same time ‘cool’.
    You may check out some helpful sites like Mathtweets, related to Math intended for Children.It’s called Children Numbers and Math and it will teach your kids how you can count, as well the basics of addition, much more and subtraction!
    The game is through Intellijoy, exactly where we are experts in educational video games with the
    fun built directly into them. If you would like your child to
    understand math ‘ and enjoy this ‘ you may not find a much better choice compared to Kids Figures and Mathematics.
    This is the free of charge version associated with Math Problem.Worse yet, because
    the outcome of a game associated with War is dependent upon pure good fortune,
    there is never any strategic thinking involved.
    Next, I thought back and kept in mind a cards game called Casino my father taught myself when I was a teen. While I sensed that Daniel was not very ready for quadratic equations, We figured can handle the card online game that included simple conjunction with the number ten.
    We played Casino continuously — perhaps a few 100 games within the next 4 or 5 months.The best way to

    Fortunately, there are many such mathematics games for kids available online, and

    included ‘Bobbing for apples’, ‘Ghost stories’,
    ‘Fortune on Walnut Shells’. The objective of the
    overall game is to complete the apple from one person to
    the various other, without coming in contact with it (which naturally
    indicates they have to place it between their
    particular neck and pass it over such as so)
    all the way up to the final person.

    Really, those models walking on the beach that you see on TV commercials might be fat before, but it did’nt just happen over night.

    Order your pack of Nidora as a weight loss and feel the difference when you try it
    up to 1 month. Every day you could do your favorite set of exercises, and
    then alternate them with a short walk in the park.

  7. hair oil says:

    And, it just works with a soft laser which utilizes
    less energy than a 40-watt light bulb. ‘ Curl-enhancing and soft blends for superior
    control. This has proven useful in boosting growth of hair, because massages allow tension to work its way out of
    the body; tension is a major cause of hair loss.

  8. This is when I ran across the name of Kevin Trudeau linked intimately with
    HCG diet info. Products that contain other yeasts
    can also be included in the diet as they will help to contain candida
    yeast. Drink enough water: Dieters must try to drink about 96
    ounces of clean water each day and even more
    in summer months.

  9. If these are some questions running in your mind, here is the answer.

    Slowly introduce sugars in moderate quantities back into your diet.

    ·Exercise: While a lot of exercise on the HCG
    Diet is neither necessary nor recommended, a simple 15 minutes a day routine will
    surely increase your weight loss.

  10. To know more about the types of cosmetic surgery procedures and how it changed people’s lives, check out Dr.
    They may be able to work with you to find an arrangement
    that you are happy with. Once the water boils,

  12. Drea says:

    I’m so glad that some of the contestants made the show this season. It was so close out there in CA and if my dad and I didn’t make the show, I’m glad a few of these couples did.
    I loved Jerry and Estella. They were so genuine and loving. Sisters Amanda and Aubrey are also wicked nice. They have a strong bond that will make this season sweet. Ron and Mike flew out of DTW with my dad and I. I wanted to talk to them so bad, but I didn’t. They seem really nice and real…can I just say, “way to go MI!!” We really represented this season.
