After the third finalist is revealed in the finale, the final three contestants will be surprised with a new twist that will raise the stakes even higher in the competition as season 17 comes to an exciting close. All sixteen contestants, who began the season as eight teams of two, will weigh in one last time and show America how muchweight they’ve all lost since beginning their weight-loss journeys. Those who have been eliminated will compete for the $100,000 “at home” prize. Then it’s the moment viewers have been waiting for, when one of the three finalists will be named this season’s “Biggest Loser” and win the coveted grand prize of $250,000.
