STORY & PHOTOS

Fans of NBC’s emotionally charged weight-loss show “The Biggest Loser” will be excited to visit the ranch where the contestants shed blood, sweat, tears, and pounds each season in their quest to become healthier. The sprawling ranch can be found in the mountains of Calabasas, CA.

At King Gillette Ranch, you’ll find the “Biggest Loser” gym, the dormitories where the cast lives, and the lush green grounds where they train and reflect. You pay a small parking fee (about $7 for the whole day), and can go directly to the main building for maps and information. (LAMountains.com also provides a free map here.)

It’s a beautiful spot to walk around, take a few photos, and enjoy nature. But, TV junkies, you’ll also spot the gym, dorms, and buildings from the show:

When I visited, they’d just started filming the 10th season. My friend and I were lucky enough to spot some of the new contestants chatting and going for a walk:

We tried not to disturb them in case they were filming, but the above guys were really nice and said hi to us. All in all, a nice little spot for a TV-stalking stop!
