South Africa: Biggest Loser SA Launches Monday

E.tv launches 'The Biggest Loser South Africa' weight-loss show on Monday 7 January at 8pm. There are 15 one-hour episodes as well as an additional 10 episodes of The Biggest Loser Extra airing on Sundays at 4 pm.

The premise of this weight-loss reality drama is as follows: two experienced fitness trainers (Lisa Raleigh and Bruce Classen) help 14 overweight contestants transform their bodies, health, and ultimately their lives. Jasmyn Asvat hosts the show. Two competing teams (red and blue) follow comprehensive diet and exercise plans to (hopefully) undergo radical physical makeovers.

Some of the difficulties to overcome include delicious food, strict weekly weigh-ins and hard-core fitness training on a thick sandy beach.

The contestants are accommodated in a seaside villa outside Durban.
