The contestants reportedly hastily reacted this week after they got wind of news that the reality weight-loss competition's producers were considering allowing an unspecified number of previously eliminated players to return to the game and resume competing for the $250,000 grand prize and title of "The Biggest Loser," the website reported Tuesday.
The contestants reportedly believed the idea was unfair and were so frustrated that they joined forces and protested by walking off the set mid-shooting of an episode.
Sources told TMZ thatThe Biggest Loser was going to stop production for a minimum of one week until the situation could get resolved, but the show has in fact resumed the filming its currently-airing thirteenth season at the ranch.
NBC is reportedly continuing to decline commenting on the matter.
