Kids Participate First Time Ever

Biggest Loser Tackles Childhood Obesity

"The Biggest Loser" returns in January to take on childhood obesity for the first time. The show will feature childhood obesity expert Dr. Joanna Dolgoff and Jillian Michaels, who just became a new mother. Season 14 will also have adult participants eager to lose weight, but the focus for kids will be on getting healthy. The kids will not be eligible for elimination and won't weigh in on camera, but their progress will be featured each episode. The three kids participating are 13-year-old Noah “Biingo” Gray, 16-year-old Sanjana “Sunny” Chandrasekar and 13-year-old Lindsay Bravo. Noah aspires to be a pro baseball player, while Sanjana wants to gain more self-confidence. Lindsay, who gave up cheerleading after being teased about her weight, hopes to inspire others.
