Dubbed “Challenge Australia” the ninth season tackles obesity across an entire community in the Victorian town of Ararat, one of Australia’s most overweight towns.
It’s very early to be kicking off the new season given ratings don’t resume until February 9th. Last year the show began in mid-March. In 2011 it premiered on January 30 and in 2012 on January 23.
TEN has already scheduled episode two for 7:30pm Monday January 20, meaning audiences are likely to face a three-way Reality TV battle shortly.
Under the guidance of our trainers Michelle, Shannan and Commando, the new series will focus on the people of the town as they change their old habits and work hard to achieving their weight loss goals.
At the same time, 14 Ararat residents who have been selected as town champions get the opportunity to train and compete in The Biggest Loser house with the aim of raising money which will contribute to a healthy living legacy for their home town.
Tune in for what promises to be a compelling year of twists and turns, heroic challenges, high emotion and gripping events as we witness an entire community changing for the better.
