‘The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition’ Premieres on Monday, May 30

Sharon Cuneta, all set for “Mega” TV comeback on May 30.

The transformation of the lives of 12 overweight Filipinos finally begins on Monday (May 30) in the much-awaited premiere of one of Philippine TV’s biggest reality shows in history, “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition.”

Witness success stories as they happen as contestants of “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” undergo emotional and physical challenges to get in shape and change the course of their lives towards winning P1 million, a condominium unit from DMCI Homes, a Vespa scooter and the title “The Very First Pinoy Biggest Loser.”

ABS-CBN’s newest reality TV show offering also marks the return of Philippine Showbiz’s one and only Megastar Sharon Cuneta to primetime. Joining her is actor-sports enthusiast Derek Ramsay, who will serve as the game master during the program’s challenges.

Over the past week, ABS-CBN revealed the identities of its 12 contestants—seven males and five females—who all have heartfelt stories that can bring both tears and inspiration to every Filipino.

Architect Alan Choachuy wants to lose weight to be able to meet and watch his grandchildren grow. Art Mendoza, who recently separated from his wife, doesn’t want to die obese and not be able to live out his dream. Eboy Bautista, meanwhile, has always been on the heavy side, but the death of his father has got him thinking about his own mortality.

There is also Eric Limatog, an emotional eater, who ballooned to his current weight due to his mother’s illness, and fire volunteer JM Oloris who is afraid that people will tease his children because of his weight. Raffy Tan, who lost his parents in a gruesome crime, wants to be healthy so that he can give his sister a good future, while Ryan Razon hopes to learn to love himself and no longer be the “not-so-good-looking Razon son.”

Among the women, there is Angela Lupango who is desperate to shed the pounds so she could start a family with her husband and Winwin Cabinta who wants to finally look like a real lady after being mistaken for a tomboy most of her life.

Edden Cruz joined the show because she believes she can’t afford to get sick as her children depend on her. Hazel Chua took the challenge so her parents will be proud of her. Meanwhile, Joy Siy said she is doing this for herself and no one else. Through the show, they hope to not just lose weight but to also gain confidence and knowledge that will make them better persons after.

In the show’s first weeks, the contestants will be divided into two teams—the Red Team will be trained by U.S. certified fitness specialist and mixed martial artist Chinggay Andrada while the Blue Team will be guided by sports scientist Jim Saret who was recently appointed by the Philippine Olympic Committee as head trainer of the National Team.

Each week, there will be a weigh-in. The team with the higher percentage of weight loss will be safe from elimination, while members of the losing team will each decide who they want to eliminate from their group.

Cuneta, who recently opened up about her own battle against weight gain in the program’s first primer “Bigating Pinoy,” said that the program hopes to change the lives of the viewers as much as the contestants. She said the program will impart guidance and information that Filipinos can use to start leading healthy lives and in building a stronger nation.

“Remember that when you choose to have a healthy lifestyle, you are given more time to become a father, a mother, a child, a sibling or friend to the people you hold close to your heart,” she said.

Get to know more about the show and the contestants on the second-part of the primer entitled “Bigating Simula: The Road to the Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition,” this Sunday (May 29), 11:15am on ABS-CBN. Don’t miss the shocking twists on the pilot episode of “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” on Monday (May 30), after “Mara Clara” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.

    Pwede din dito isali si Marian Rivera bilang “THE BIGGEST LAOSER”.

  2. Gaye Galliguez // May 28, 2011 at 9:01 pm //

    Panu matototo yung mga contestant kung ang host mismo ay isang patabaing baboy. 😀

  3. eh di ikaw ang mag host, LOW LIFE SCUMBAG!

  4. Gaye Galliguez // May 28, 2011 at 8:07 pm //

    Dapat ang Host hindi obese katulad ni Chicharon Cuneta.

  5. mamahalin natin to! kudos for kapamilya for another interesting show.

  6. STOP MENTIONING SARDINES, NOODLES, T-SHIRTS, ETC. IN ANTI-GME COMMENTS!

  7. heller..ano naman ikaiinggit sa GMA..please give me one: Hit movies? Hit songs? hit shows trending in different networking sites? o praise releases?

  8. @savvydude // May 28, 2011 at 10:03 am //

    kung balyena ang tawag mo kay Sharon, eh ano si Jessica Soho? Loch Ness Monster?

  9. SANA SI JESSICA SOHO NA LANG GINAMIT NYO NA HOST KASI MARAMING DI PABOR KAY SHARON EH // May 28, 2011 at 10:01 am //

    kung galit ang mga taga-GMA kay sharon, sana inirekomendar nila si Jessica Soho para maging host dito…..

  10. hey, kayo mga kapusao ang naiinggit, kasi music records at movies nyo nilalangaw, di nyo ma tamper records ng BOX OFFICE MOJO, ang pwede sa yo at ang tandem nyo ang AGB lng….. at ang mga taga kamuning lng na binibigyan nyo ng mga sardinas, noodles, bigas, t-shirts, payong, baso at kung ano ano pa dyan

  11. bakit maniwala ako sa mga ratings na yan, kung dinaya man lang o ang sampling ng mga yan ay di totoong nagrepresentar ng mga preferences ng buong bansa? di naman QUANTITY of viewers ang importante, eh QUALITY of shows ang hinahabol ng mga intelligent na viewers NA DI MADADALA NG MGA DOLE-OUTS NG MGA SARDINES, BIGAS, NOODLES, T-SHIRTS, PAYONG AT IBA PA

    Kudos ABS-CBN for showing “The Biggest Loser” in your network, lots of people especially those who are over weight will be inspired by your show.

    This will encourage the over size people specially the obese that they have a chance to down size their body.

    Aabangan namin ‘to!!!!

  17. psychology (marian) // May 27, 2011 at 11:13 pm //

    wag mo namang inglesin, psychology ako, di ko yan ma intindihan; ang alam ko lng ANG mag topless upang may manood sa pinaka expensive kong serye na historical ngunit may magic at powers powers

    Dapat ang sumali dito si Flo at Long, sama na nila si Marian, Richard and Dindong…sila ang biggest LOSERS!

  19. Wag mung Englesin d maka intinde ang kanguso yan LOW IQ.

  20. Doppelganger // May 27, 2011 at 9:15 pm //

    Sharon’s agreeing to host a show whose title can personally dovetail her is ill-advised. At the rate she’s been handling herself and her career lately,it’s obviously desperate to exploit her condition even further. There comes a time when one has to move on gracefully without putting one’s self on the line just to recapture a time long gone by….

  21. franchise atleast maganda! Hnd katulad sa GMA natunugan lang na may cooking show ang ABSCBN.Nagpuuso sila anu nangyari sa KITCHEN SUPERSTAR at AMAZING COOKING db ang panget! FLOP na FLOP both agb and tns ratings. // May 27, 2011 at 8:56 pm //

    San na mga nanalo ng SURVIVOR? PHILIPPINE IDOL? asan cla nasa kangkungan. WAHAHAHAHA.

  22. si FLO na yan ang pwedeng mag tandem kay Jessica Soho // May 27, 2011 at 7:36 pm //

    ang Tga-GMA ay mga weaknesses ng ABS ang nakita, di nila tinitingnan na mas marami silang nega, boses at pag deliver ni Mike Enriquez na di makapasa sa journalism standards, bakit nagka-award pa sila? si Jessica soho, mas mukhang balyena di nakita ni FLO na pigado..

  23. kimchiu // May 27, 2011 at 7:30 pm //

    SNA SUMABAY C SHAWI S MGA CONTESTANTS PRA AT LEAST ALM NTING EFFCTIV UNG SHOW,DB?SNA C TONI G. NlnG HOST!

  24. ay di nyo alam na ang historical story ngayon ay fantasy na? kahit history ay gagawin nilang fantasya kahit datos sa AGB at news sa PEP ay kaya ng GMA na gawing pantasya!

  25. dagdagan ko philippine idol. nasan na ba yung nanalo dun dahil binili ang txt vote?

  26. Ewan... // May 27, 2011 at 7:13 pm //
