NBC has revealed the identities of the 11 teams of two who will be competing on The Biggest Loser: Couples, the reality weight-loss series' ninth season, which will premiere Tuesday, January 5 at 8PM ET/PT.

The Biggest Loser: Couples' cast will also include the NBC reality show's heaviest contestant ever -- Michael Ventrella, who will begin the competition at 526 pounds. He is 50 lbs. heavier than former eighth-season contestant Shauntina "Shay" Sorrells, who began the recently concluded season at 476 pounds.
