OLYMPIANS APOLO OHNO, LOLO JONES AND MORE GUEST STAR ON SPECIAL "BIGGEST LOSER" EPISODE AIRING JANUARY 14 AND FILMED AT UTAH OLYMPIC PARK

USA Bobsled Team Member Jasmine Fenlator, and USA Curling Team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm Also Guest Star in Olympic-themed Episode

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - January 9, 2014 - "The Biggest Loser" contestants are off on the adventure of a lifetime in a special Winter Olympic-themed episode of NBC's "The Biggest Loser," where they'll train like champions at Utah Olympic Park and meet incredible Olympic athletes, including eight-time medalist Apolo Ohno and Olympian Lolo Jones. The special episode airs Tuesday, January 14 (8-10 p.m. ET) on NBC.

After arriving at Utah's spectacular Olympic park, Dolvett introduces the players to Olympic gold medalist Apolo Ohno, who talks about his own "Second Chance" - this season's theme - and works out with the contestants inside the Olympic Oval arena. Then the contestants get to compete in the sport of curling, after an introduction to USA Curling team members Jessica Schultz, Debbie McCormick and Anne Swisshelm.

The fun continues at the base of the bobsled track, where words of motivation from USA Bobsled Team members Lolo Jones and Jazmine Fenlator get the remaining eight players fired up about the fast-paced sport. But for this week's challenge, they won't be racing down the track. Instead, they will be running more than a mile up the bobsled track, a challenge made far more difficult by the elevation of over 7,000 feet.

Also this week, Bob designs an Olympic-inspired workout that puts all the players to the test, and Jillian tries to help a contestant still struggling to embrace her self-worth. Travelling and being away from the ranch environment leaves many contestants worried about their weight loss this week. Those fears intensify at the weigh-in, where shocking results push two players below the yellow line and the other contestants must decide which player is going home.

"The Biggest Loser" is a production of Shine America and 25/7 Productions. Ben Silverman, Dave Broome, Eden Gaha, Lisa Hennessy, JD Roth and Todd A. Nelson are the executive producers.
