“The Biggest Loser” isn’t over yet, but NBC is already tempting viewers of the popular reality show with a guest appearance from Jessica Simpson, who stars in their newest reality show, “Fashion Star.” The fashion designing contest premieres after “The Biggest Loser” March 13 at 9:30 p.m. ET.
But before that premiere, contestants on the weight loss show will compete in a challenge on the ice for their just reward — a shopping spree with singer, actress and fashion designer Simpson. Their challenge takes place on the ice, with each player harnessed by rope to a large ring in the center of the rink. In a physically demanding tug-of-war twist, each contestant has to try to make their way to a buzzer in front of them, while also pulling all the other contestants in their desired direction.
Simpson helps style the winning player plus another contestant chosen by the winner to a spree at her Jessica Simpson Collection showroom. We’re aren’t sure who wins, but Conda Britt and Kim Nielsen are in the promo photos for this week, so we know who gets prizes.
That’s not the only surprise in store for the nine remaining contestants this week, as host Alison Sweeney tells them the game is going to singles, and they will also face the season’s first yellow line at the weigh-in.
Also, the trainer becomes the student when one contestant gets a chance to coach trainer Bob Harper. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a reality show or “The Biggest Loser” without an elimination.
The March 13 episode airs 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. and after next week, will run 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. to make room for a second day of “The Voice,” as the live contests for NBC’s singing contest will now have a Tuesday results show.
“The Biggest Loser” airs on NBC on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET. Subscribe for updates and recaps of all the episodes.
