The producer of "The Biggest Loser" takes weight loss program to a new level. Dave Broome teams up with "Pimp My Ride" producer Rick Hurvitz to create a reality show about overweight couple working hard to lose pounds before their wedding day approaches. The first sneak peek to the show has just been released.
10 couples are subject to a series of challenges to win a dream wedding as well as ideal weight. Some of the physical games are similar to "Biggest Loser" but some are wedding-related such as carrying a four-tiered wedding cake back and fourth, and doing ballroom dancing. The prizes are also about weddings like cake, rings and invitations.
The contestants are working with trainers and nutritionists while meeting wedding planners. The couple with the lowest amount of weight loss at the weigh-in would be eliminated. And the last standing couple would be awarded with a "fantasy wedding that America will attend."
"Shedding for the Wedding" is set for January premiere. Actress Sara Rue who has the experience of losing a lot of weight too on Jenny Craig Inc. is appointed as the host.
