The Biggest Loser: Special Edition is a special edition of the NBC reality television series The Biggest Loser. The special edition debuted on January 4, 2006.

Synopsis[edit]

In contrast to the regular series, the special edition typically consists of teams who already know each other, rather than strangers. The show is hosted by comedian Caroline Rhea with Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels as the two personal trainers.

Instead of spending months at the ranch and then continuing to lose more weight at home, the special edition contestants are only spending 11 days at the ranch and then returning home for "several" months. At the end, all the contestants come back to be weighed for the final time and one team will ultimately be declared the "Biggest Loser(s)."
