NBC orders fourth season of The Biggest Loser

NBC began casting for The Biggest Loser 4 five months ago, but the network only today announced that the show had been picked up for a fourth season.

NBC’s Kevin Reilly promises that “The producing team has come up with unique ways to keep the series fresh and we anticipate the next cycle will continue to produce life-changing results for the contestants and jaw-dropping reveals for the viewers.”

And executive producer JD Roth says they are “very fortunate to have yet another year of helping overweight Americans reclaim their lives.” And product-place more Jello. Don’t forget that, JD.
