Full Episode Summary

In this first episode we are introduced to our cast of eight overweight celebrities; Daniel Baldwin, Kim Coles (Living Single), Joe Gannascoli (The Sopranos), Judge Mablean Ephriam (Divorce Court), Biz Markie, Ralphie May (Last Comic Standing), Mia Tyler and Wendy Kauffman (The Snapple Lady.)

The celebrities meet our panel of experts: Dr. David Katz, hypnotherapist Marisa Peer and fitness trainer Harvey Walden IV. The panel chooses two team captains and the captains pick teams as we put the celebrities through a grueling workout and learn the back-story of each celebrity and their reasons for coming on the show.

The celebrities are weighed in individually, and at the end of the show, both teams weigh in on the giant scales. The scales are then calibrated so we can compare the two teams cumulative weight loss over the course of the show.
