Big news this evening regarding Days of our Lives long time fan favorite Alison Sweeney. After 13 seasons, Sweeney has decided to call it quits as host of the weight-loss competition, The Biggest Loser. The news came via an official statement from the NBC series producers first revealed at Access Hollywood.
The brief statement read: “After an incredible run together, Alison Sweeney will not be returning as host of The Biggest Loser next season.”
Alison began appearing on the show in 2007, following comedian Caroline Rhea. At the moment, no replacement has been chosen, and the show’s 17th season does not yet have a premiere date.
As fans of DAYS know, Alison will be back on the canvas reprising her role of Sami Brady during the show’s upcoming 50th anniversary season which kicks-off this November. Previously back in 2014, Alison announced her departure from Days of our Lives after a nearly twenty-two year run to focus on her other shows and specials, and to be able to spend more time raising her two children.
With her exiting The Biggest Loser, could this possibly pave the way for Sweeney’s stay in Salem to end up being longer than anticipated?
