A TV personality who was a staple on the hit reality show “The Biggest Loser” during its 17 seasons on NBC will be back on board for the USA Network reboot, premiering in 2020.
USA announced today that health and fitness expert Bob Harper will be the show’s host.
“I’ve learned a lot over the last two years since suffering a heart attack,” said Harper. “I know more than ever that it’s about overall health and living your absolute best life inside and out, plus finding ways to overcome the everyday obstacles that we all face. That is what we are doing with the show. We are going to be changing lives and it is going to be big. I cannot wait to get started!”
Harper will be joined on the show by new trainers. The series, which has a 10-episode order from USA, will be produced by Endemol Shine North America in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio.
The original “Biggest Loser” ran from 2004-2016 on NBC.
