NBC just released a new promo video for the upcoming season 14 of “The Biggest Loser” where we get to meet one of the teen team members (they’re not official contestants). She laments the fact that her weight keeps her from some of her favorite school activities. We also meet one of the contestants who is reminded by trainer Bob Harper that he is working out not only for himself but for his infant son. And of course there’s a feisty little glimpse of returning trainer Jillian Michaels.
Season 14 of “The Biggest Loser” premieres Sunday, Jan. 6 with a two-night premiere spanning Sunday and Monday nights. It then will settle into its new Monday 8 p.m. timeslot.
(You can check out the video link below for the promo.)

Jillian Michaels reunites with Hannah and Olivia on “The Jeff Probst Show”
Returning “Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels is on “The Jeff Probst Show” today, chatting about her spouse, Heidi, motherhood and how her daughter Lu handles the paparazzi (she yells “Hello!), and the new season of “The Biggest Loser.” She’s also surprised by a guest appearance from Hannah and Olivia, who reminisce about their days on the show and how Jillian helped to whip them into winning shape.
Also on the show is actress Marissa Jaret Winokur, who talks about her recent 60-pound weight loss and how she keeps the weight off her teeny tiny body. She takes viewers to the gym with her to show one of her workouts.
And in keeping with the weight-loss theme of the show, “Jeff Probst Show” staffer David Garcia, who writes the blog Keep It Up David, talks about his 165-pound weight loss.
