Atlantan Dolvett Quince joins NBC’s competitive reality show “The Biggest Loser” as one of two new trainers. The other two are veteran Bob Harper and fellow newcomer and former tennis pro Anna Kournikova. Their jobs: help a group of morbidly obese men and women lose as much weight as possible over 11 weeks. The winner receives $250,000. Its 12th season begins tonight at 8 p.m.

Who: Dolvett Quince

Age: 38

Born: Stamford, Conn.

Residences: Atlanta and Los Angeles

Years as a personal trainer: 12

Most notable clients: Q100 morning host Bert Weiss, Justin Bieber, Boris Kodjoe, Nicole Ari Parker

Why “The Biggest Loser”? “It’s such a dominant show in terms of health and fitness and truly helps people transform their lives. It’s something I’ve been doing my entire life.  I can now do it on a bigger scale.”

His philosophy: “Over the years, I’ve been more than just a trainer. I’ve been a friend. I’ve been a life coach. You’ll see it on the show as well where I’m able to connect with the contestants that way.”

What he’s learned so far: “When I hear their stories, some of them are similar to mine. I definitely learned a lot about facing my demons and dealing with issues. I can’t be too specific yet because there are episodes coming up that will disclose that.”

I’m with you carla roqs, you can’t replace Jillian. Going to miss her. Good luck to the new guy though. He’s an attractive young man with a nice smile. :)

I enjoyed the show tonight 9-20-11, and you were great Dolvett. I look forward to seeing you do big things around Atlanta and on a bigger scale across the country :-) Your a cutie and it’s great to see a young black man doing positive and powerful things in people’s lives.

I continue to be amazed by this show, and Dolvett was a great addition to it.

I don’t know how someone can lose 37 pounds in ONE week. Then again, this person weighs two hundred pounds more than I do, and it’s a sign that their previous life was SO unhealthy that even switching to a healthy diet without the rigorous exercise would have had amazing results.
