LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - NFL quarterbacks Drew Brees and Tim Tebow will guest star on the upcoming season of The Biggest Loser.
The New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos players will appear alongside a number of former and current NFL stars on the October 4 episode of the NBC reality show.
The athletes will participate in different aspects of the show -- some will be in a throwing contest with the contestants, a few will share personal stories about overcoming adversity and others will help the show's participants with the Last Chance Workout.
Regarding the football-centric episode, The Biggest Loser executive producer Todd Lubin says:
- â€œItâ€™s not just some great athlete coming out and saying â€˜Hey, look at me!â€™ We actually get to their stories -- and these NFL guys have unbelievable stories. Drew had a major debilitating injury, came back and won a Super Bowl, so his message was, â€˜Whatever the adversity is, youâ€™ve got to fight through it.â€™â€
