If you haven't heard, ALL the remaining cast members of Biggest Loser are threatening to call it quits if the producers allow previously eliminated contestants to come back to compete for the $250K grand prize.
We think it's total bullshizz that the producers would pull this stunt on people who put in the hard work to stay in the competition, but a season 12 contestant is a little perturbed at the contestants on strike.
66-year-old John Forger, who was eliminated in the second week of season 12 after losing 97 pounds, believes these people are forgetting what this show is all about — getting healthy! He told sources he would NEVER walk off the show over a money issue when his life is at stake, explaining:
"It's not about [money]. What it's really about, for most of us, is the change in our lifestyle, and being able to get rid of obesity … For most of us, it's about health. Would I walk off the show for the money? ABSOLUTELY NOT."
But then again, maybe he's just trying to get back on the show to compete for the money! Ha!
We're just kidding. We get what he's saying and find it admirable, however, he's not in the current cast's situation.
It's not like this is Temptation Island, where the contestants just sat around, got drunk and cheated on their significant others up until this point. These people have put in blood, sweat and tears to make it this far (okay, maybe not blood). So yeah, we'd be a little pissed too if somebody who couldn't hack it before got another shot at the grand prize.
Do U think the contestants are being ungrateful for their life-changing experience or are the producers being unfair?
