Bob Harper On New Biggest Loser: It's Kinder, Gentler + More Holistic

After ending in 2016, "The Biggest Loser" is coming back for season 18 — but with a different approach, host Bob Harper says. 

The trainer and host shares what to expect after returning from filming the 18th season in Sante Fe, New Mexico.

"It's kinder, gentler and more holistic," Bob tells us.

"One of the [ways] we're trying to approach this new reboot very differently is the after care," he says. "We're trying to give the contestants on our show all the tools that they're going to need — a gym membership, nutritionists, a support group. I do these support groups every single week, where we all just get together and sit and talk."

"I also really push the accountability factor," he continues. "I can give you every single book, tool — everything you need to succeed in weight loss — but if you aren't willing to do the very hard work, then there's nothing I can do." 

Plus, there will be new faces! 

"We have two new trainers," Bob tells Rach. "Erica Lugo — who, by the way, she was on this show. [She] lost over 160 pounds and has managed to keep it off for almost five years. She is the real deal."

"We also have Steve Cook," he continues, "who looks like Captain America."

Wait, There's More ...
