Alison Sweeney Tapped to Host "The Biggest Loser"

Caroline Rhea is out, one of daytime's biggest troublemakers is in. NBC has hired Alison Sweeney (Sami, Days of Our Lives) to be the host for the next installment of The Biggest Loser. Sweeney, who admittedly has struggled with her own weight in the past, will be pulling double-duty for NBC this fall.

I'm very excited for Alison to receive this chance to spread her hosting wings. As anyone will tell you, she is just the sweetest thing in real life, so contestants won't have to worry that "Sami" might emerge and freak out on them while they are working out on the treadmill or something. I watched the first season of Loser, but lost interest in the next two. Now, I'll be sure to tune in to Season 4 and see Ms. Sweeney in action!
