‘The Biggest Loser’ Host Takes Cues From Contestants

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For the host of the weight- loss reality show The Biggest Loser, the contestants’ real-life struggles contain some added acting advantages.

Alison Sweeney has starred on Days of our Lives since she was 16, and on her new gig as TV host, the sexy soap star was truly moved by the contestants courage and determination – and even plans to pinch some pointers from their pride.

Sweeney says, “I was so affected by their stories. They are such amazing, brave people. Being an actor is being an observer, it reminds you as an actor how real people react to situations.”

And while Sweeney may take cues from the show’s heavy hitters, executive producer Mark Koops says viewers can expect to see some soap mixed in with the sweat.

Koops says, “There’s plenty of soap opera during this season!”

The Biggest Loser premieres September 11.
