More big changes are hitting The Biggest Loser!
Longtime host Alison Sweeney recently announced that she was leaving the show and would not be returning for its upcoming 17th season. Today, Bob Harper announced via People magazine that he would be taking Alison’s gig as host for Season 17.
“I’m super excited,” Bob told the magazine of his new role. “I know all of the ins and outs [of the show]. And let me tell you, the weigh-in room is going to be a completely different ballgame with me at the steering wheel.”
Last season, Bob headed up the new “Comeback Canyon” feature of the show, which gave eliminated contestants a chance to train with Bob to get back in the game. He has been with the show as a trainer since it premiered in 2004.
