Season Two

Season two of The Biggest Loser was held in 2010 on Mallorca. The slogan of that season was Abspecken im Doppelpack (Losing weight in double pack). The host was retired boxer Regina Halmich. There were eight teams with 2 persons each. One team was evicted each week until three were left, after which the teams were dissolved and everyone was as individuals. The first prize was much lower this season with the winner getting only 25,000 € and nothing going to second and third place. The biggest loser title was won by Heino from Hamburg who shared the prize with his teammate Sven, who finished third.
