Alison Sweeney hosts the special, filmed before a live audience, and trainers Bob Harper, Anna Kournikova and Dolvett Quince will all be on hand to share their thoughts about the current season of the show. Cameras will also follow trainer Bob Harper through “a day in the life.”
Fan favorites like Abby Rike (season eight), Tara Costa (season seven), O’Neal Hampton (season nine) and season five winner Ali Vincent will reveal what they are up to now, along with season eight champ Danny Cahill and season 11 winner Olivia Ward. Viewers can also catch up with Hannah Curlee (season 11) and Jesse Atkins (season 10) as well as other popular players like season seven’s Sione Fa and Jerry and Estella Hayes, who give their updates via personal videos.
One contestant makes a big surprise announcement, and another shares her emotional story of competing in one of the most difficult competitions in the world. And there's an update on the condition of season nine contestant Sam Poueu, who was critically injured after falling from a four-story building in September. Considering the head trauma he suffered, word is that his recovery has been miraculous (thanks to all the prayers on his behalf!) and he's now undergoing physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy.
Cooking expert Aida Mollenkamp will prepare a healthy Thanksgiving feast for the trainers and past season contestants, and share great cooking tips as well. Currently, Aida is host of two shows on the Cooking Channel: “Ask Aida”, where she shares her knowledge of food while dishing out culinary therapy, and “Foodcrafters,” where Aida leaves the kitchen to uncover handmade food finds from around the nation.
