On Dec. 1, the 80 contestants will have their final weigh-in.

Contestants began their quest Sept. 2 with a beginning weigh-in. The contestants have weighed in every two weeks, dieted, gone through physical challenges and worked out to see who would win the prize package and the honor of being Albert Lea’s “Biggest Loser.”
