Alison Sweeney: ‘Biggest Loser’ Host Leaves Show
E! Online reports that Alison Sweeney is no longer hosting the NBC series. The network released a statement over the actress’ departure saying, “After an incredible run together, Alison Sweeney will not be returning as host of ‘The Biggest Loser’ next season.”

However, the mother of two isn’t taking any time off. Alison Sweeney will next be seen in the Hallmark Channel movie “Love On The Air,” and another Hallmark flick “Murder She Baked: A Plum Pudding Murder Mystery.”
A new “Biggest Loser” host will be named soon as Season 17 is set to begin filming in Sept. as we are all looking forward to Sweeney’s next career moves, although we secretly hope she comes back to “Days of Our Lives” for good.
