[IMG:L]The Biggest Loser — 9/8c on NBC

The fall reality shows are droppin’ like flies.

Dancing with the Stars ended Nov. 27, Survivor signed off Sunday night, and now The Biggest Loser.

Fortunately for Loser fans, the fifth season–aka The Biggest Loser: Couples–begins on New Year’s Day. (And for reality TV fans in general, there’s also this little-known talent/singing-competition thingy called American Idol that starts up in less than a month.)

Loser has been a ratings winner for NBC, and tonight, with little else new to watch on network TV, the weight-loss show’s season finale will yield huge numbers.

The remaining four from a pool that began with 18 contestants are: Hollie Self, who made headlines when she left to be with her dying mother in week 6; Isabeau Miller, a Loser record holder for having lost more weight before going home than any contestant in history; Julie Hadden, who came in with the lowest starting weight of any contestant this season; and Bill Germanakos, whose twin brother Jim was eliminated in week 5.

The Biggest Loser, as all viewers know, receives a whopping $250,000, and yet he or she still winds up lighter in the pockets!
