The Biggest Loser: curveballs flying just in time for baseball season

“The Biggest Loser” has a history and a tendency to throw curveballs at us. But last night they took things to extremes.

The theme this season is families, and this time as each pair of contestants were notified that they were selected to be on the show, they also had to have their initial weigh in in public, in front of their families, friends, and entire towns. Yikes.
