Cool Wish new seasons would do something different

I like the Biggest Loser and I'm inspired by the results. If they can lose 100 pounds I can lose 40 pounds.
But I find myself fast forwarding through episodes (until the weigh in) because they are all the same. They start off with some commentary etc go to workout, challenge, weigh in etc. I just wish they would spice things up and have a few surprises and not have the same exact episode every time.

From what I hear, the new season is supposed to be revamped- that's why it's taking so long for them to get it out. I hope it's more interesting as well!

I heard they won't be voting anyone off--and that the contestants are teens. Anyone know more about this?

There will be a "standard" format show group, but each trainer also has 1 teen who is not on the ranch, can't be voted off, and doesn't participate in the weigh-ins. The focus with the teens is more about healthy habits, joining a sports team, etc.
