UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. May 7, 2009 The winner of NBC's hit series "The Biggest Loser: Couples" will be revealed in an exciting, three-hour live finale on Tuesday, May 12 (8-11 p.m. ET). In the first part of the show, the third finalist as determined by America's vote will also be revealed. And America will get a chance to choose one of the new contestants for the next season of "The Biggest Loser."
For the season seven finale, all 22 contestants return for a special reunion and a chance to weigh in one last time and to show America how much weight they've lost since the beginning of their weight-loss journeys. The transformations will be profound, not just for the finalists, but also for the eliminated contestants who all continued to lose weight after they left the "Biggest Loser" ranch and returned home.
In the most recent episode, which aired May 5, Tara Costa (New York, N.Y.) and Helen Phillips (Sterling Heights, Mich.) weighed in above the yellow line, securing their spots as two of the three finalists. Ron Morelli (South Lyon, Mich.) and his son, Mike, both fell below the yellow line, leaving viewers to choose between father and son to determine the third place finalist competing for the grand prize of $250,000. America's choice will be revealed in the first part of the finale on May 12, and the contestant who didn't get chosen will compete with the other 18 eliminated players for an "at home" prize of $100,000. Viewers voted by phone and online and the voting window is now over.
America will also get to select a contestant to compete on the next season of "The Biggest Loser," which will premiere in September. Viewers can choose between two potential contestants by casting their votes by phone and online at www.nbc.com, and the winner will be announced near the end of the live finale.
Then it's the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season's "Biggest Loser" and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000!
