**Saturday, April 8 & Sunday, April 9
Two new trainers and a compelling new twist deliver a game-changing season like nothing viewers have seen before when season 11 premieres with twenty-two contestants — eleven family and friend teams of two. After the first challenge, contestants are given the unprecedented opportunity to choose whether to work out with trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels at the ranch – or work out at a secret location with two unknown trainers and get four weeks of immunity.
**Monday, April 10 & Tuesday, April 11
Alison Sweeney issues a challenge to the ranch-based contestants: if they have a higher percentage of weight loss than the “unknowns” – the contestants working out with the two new mystery trainers — they’ll all have immunity this week.
**Wednesday, April 12 & Thursday, April 13
The “unknown trainers” are finally revealed, and both will share their personal stories that led them to “The Biggest Loser.” Their contestants, “the unknowns,” confront one player they feel isn’t working hard enough, and later, “the unknowns” and the ranch contestants square off for a pop challenge.

The contestants are faced with the “ultimate temptation” this week when each team enters a room filled with each player’s favorite foods.
**Saturday, April 15 & Sunday, April 16

**Friday, April 21 & Saturday, April 22
A ball challenge that turns out to be much harder than it looks gives the winning team a big advantage at this week’s weigh-in, which is especially valuable given that both a red line and a yellow line will result in two players going home.
**Sunday, April 23 & Monday, April 24

**Saturday, April 29 & Sunday, April 30
This week, one eliminated contestant returns and the remaining players are split into four teams – red, blue, green and black. Each team will be led by one of the four trainers – Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels, Cara Catronuova and Brett Hoebel.
