If you remember, on Monday we reported a former contestant alleged she was encouraged to take drugs to lose weight while on the show — an accusation producers and celeb trainer Bob Harper vehemently denied.

Well, now another contestant, Suzanne Mendonca, who was on season two of the show way back more than a decade ago — is wrangling up participants from all seasons in preparation for a class action lawsuit against the network and producers!!

According to reports, Mendonca claims that The Biggest Loser ruined her life, and it left her fat — fatter than even when she started on the show — and more unhealthy than ever before.

Suzanne also has some specific claims that, if true, are kind of disturbing; she alleges the show withheld water from contestants and over-exercised them in a bid to speed up lightning-fast weight loss for TV.

But producers, just like they did over the drug allegations, are fighting back.

One show producer told TMZ:

“We stand by the integrity of the show. The safety and well-being of our contestants is, and has always been, our number one priority.”

The truth, or hollow words?!

Well, for one, Mendonca has been at this for quite a while.

Here’s a vid from 18 months ago when she appeared on Entertainment Tonight and made many of the same claims she’s making now (below):
