For the past few weeks, NBC’s reality weight-loss competition The Biggest Loser has been receiving plenty of backlashes from the public. A few former contestants have come forward claiming that they were forced to severely restrict their caloric intake while on the show. This unhealthy weight-loss method has caused for a good portion of the show’s alumni to return to their pre-show weight – or even heavier! Now the show is facing even more criticism, as the L.A.P.D. is investigating after they were informed that contestants were supplied illegal drugs to aid their weight-loss. Over the past 17 seasons of the show there have been some pretty dramatic transformations.
Unfortunately, it seems that many of these transformations were largely due to some very questionable practices.
