Biggest Loser Trainer Dolvett Quince Discusses The Season 14 Premiere Featuring Kids and 4 New York Contestants
The Biggest Loser returns for a two night premiere with a new change and a old face. Trainer Jillian Michaels returns to join Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince, who says for the first time, Biggest Loser will tackle childhood obesity by featuring kid participants, with one from Rochester New York.
New This Season
Dolvett explains the three kids, one on each team, won't weigh in as the adults do every season because 'it's not about a competition for them. It's about showing them ways to be healthy and be active. re-introducing fun and exciting ways to keep them moving. Its not about competing as much as it is about lifestyle, not only for themselves, but for their families.'
Kids vs Adults
Training children is much different for Dolvett than training adults. 'Its not about training per say as it is about keeping the child laughing and having fun and moving and doing sports and staying active. Who doesn't want to go out and play basketball and being a kid again.' So who's easier to work with? The kids or the adults. 'Of course the kids. Kids are funny. They don't have any inhibitions. They don't have any headaches. They're just like ok lets do it, lets have fun. I love it because I'm a dad.'
Season 14 Cast
Dolvett is proud of the cast for Season 14 that includes 4 from New York. 'This cast this season is amazing. You're going to fall in love with this group of people. I promise.' So, who should we be keeping an eye on this season? Dolvett says 'If I were you, I'd keep an eye on Jillian, Bob and Dolvett. It's amazing to watch those three work.' Oh I'll definitely be keeping an eye on Dolvett and his sexy smile in that red shirt. But what about a little hint Dolvett? Will the New Yorkers make us proud? 'I'll give you that much. The New Yorkers will be so proud of these folks.'
