Recently NBC announced a secret twist on their hit show, 'Biggest Loser' where celebrities compete to see who can shed the most excess pounds. The show's producers leaked word that it may allow previous contestants to return to the show to compete for the $250,000 grand prize. Immediately the current stars were pissed off! To express their great displeasure they coordinated a walk-off and left the set during filming for the latest episode. According to TMZ, the producers of the show have halted production this week in order to figure out what to do next.
It sounds like another publicity stunt to me. Apparently a representative from the NBC network had no comment on the events. Let's see what fans are saying on Twitter:

Seems like fans of the show don't care either way. I guess the main point is to see people drop a lot of weight. The money is just there to motivate them. I like seeing what happens after they leave the show and they are no longer motivated to diet and exercise. Hello fatso!
