Steve Cook On The Biggest Loser
After a four-year hiatus, NBC's weight-loss reality show "The Biggest Loser" is back. As of January 28, a new 10-episode season of the series will show 12 contestants facing off to see who can lose the most weight for a cash prize.
The bodybuilding community will see a familiar face on the revamped show in Muscle Insider cover model Steve Cook. Steve is one of two new and fresh faces on the hit T.V. show that also includes Erica Lugo and the return of host Bob Harper.
For the producers of the show, Steve was an obvious choice to take the spot of trainer for the Blue Team. Not only does he have major wins and Olympia appearances but also training credentials under his belt as well as an incredible social media following with over 2.5 million Instagram followers and 1.27 million YouTube subscribers where his nutrition and lifestyle content has been viewed almost 200 million times!
Outside of new trainers, the show has made many improvements including addressing some controversies that haunted the show. The contestants will have more support when they leave the show or are eliminated early. There's now a new focus on an enhanced aftercare package which will give the contestants the tools to continue a healthy lifestyle. That aftercare package includes a gym membership, a nutritionist, and guidance towards a support group.
We wish all the contests the best of luck this season and congratulations to Steve on his new role.
