Not only has Biggest Loser touched millions of Americans, but now reaches more than 50 countries, with places like Australia and Guam hosting their own series.

Each season the show introduces teams of people battling serious weight problems. During the fifth season, the show had ten teams of two couples competing to win, in season 6 they hosted a families format, season 7 returned to couples and season 8 will go back singles.

In the beginning, the teams are competing to win a cash prize of $250,000 and the title of Biggest Loser; but after a few weeks, they start to discover themselves and become more interested in getting healthy.
