The Biggest Loser South Africa is a South African reality television show which first aired from 7 January 2008 to 14 April 2008 on e.tv. The show is a spin-off of the American reality television show The Biggest Loser. The South African version features Jasmyn Asvat as the host with trainers Bruce Claasen (Blue team) and Lisa Raleigh (Red team). The premise of the show is similar to other international versions following the format of "temptation", "reward challenge", "weigh-in" and "elimination". In addition to the 15 regular episodes, there are an additional 10 episodes of The Biggest Loser Extra which focuses on the eliminated contestants.[1]

Sharon Haarhoff was the winner of the first season, losing 61.8 kg (136 lb; 9.73 st).
