UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - January 30, 2014 -- Season 15 of "The Biggest Loser: Second Chances" comes to an exciting close as the 15 contestants reunite to show off their amazing transformations, and the winner is revealed in the must-see live finale airing Tuesday, February 4 (9-11 p.m. ET) on NBC. The participants will be revealing their combined weight loss of over 1700 pounds.

After an exciting season that included an unforgettable trip to Utah Olympic Park to train with Olympic athletes, amazing makeovers with fashion icon Tim Gunn and celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves and the show's first ever sprint triathlon, it's time for all the contestants to weigh in one last time.

The three finalists competing for the $250,000 grand prize are 43-year old David Brown (Edmond, Oklahoma), a project manager for a construction company and social commerce leader for a phone company; 24-year-old voice-over artist Rachel Frederickson (Los Angeles, California) and 29-year-old attorney Bobby Saleem (Chicago, Illinois). The transformations of all of the contestants at finale will be profound, not just for the finalists, but also for the eliminated players who continued to lose weight after returning home from "The Biggest Loser" ranch and are now competing for the "at home" prize of $100,000.

Ruben Studdard, the series' first celebrity contestant, will perform the single "Meant to Be," from his new CD "Unconditional Love," released the day of finale. Music icon and 16-time Grammy Award winner David Foster - who co-wrote the song and appeared in a "Biggest Loser" episode earlier this season -- will accompany Ruben on piano.

The show will kick off with special appearances by fan favorite contestants all the way back from season two, briefly sharing what they've done with the "Second Chance" they got from being on "The Biggest Loser." Last season's kid ambassadors - Biingo, Lindsay and Sunny - will also be at the finale, giving an update on how they are doing now. And trainers Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels and Dolvett Quince will introduce special audience members who have been inspired by the show to lose substantial weight all on their own at home.

After the eliminated contestants weigh in, the "at home," $100,000 prize winner will be announced. Then it's the moment viewers have been waiting for, when the three finalists weigh in one last time, revealing this season's "Biggest Loser" and the winner of $250,000.

"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. David Friedman is also an executive producer for the live finale.
