On this show, obese contestants are challenged to "face their food demons", let go of their excess weight, and move on to better lives.
Based on the American The Biggest Loser
, the Australian format differs, airing several episodes per week, thus bringing viewers along to witness the detailed trials and tribulations of each contestant's journey.
The contestant who loses the greatest percentage body weight by the final weigh-in, is crowned The Biggest Loser
and wins a cash prize.
