Never in the history of TVSA have we received so many queries about when The Biggest Loser will be back. 

Flashback! to >> 2008 when the South African version aired on and ended with winner Sharon Haarhoff losing a whopping 61.8kgs in total.

Once the show ended, we were bombarded with questions about when it would return. These questions went on for years! BUT the show never returned.

Since then various channels have produced similar-concept shows e.g. Bouga Luv's weight loss challenge Kabelo's Boot Camp on Mzansi Magic.

And now there's a new one on the scene called Squad Goals, produced by Sothar Picures (Bone of My Bones, Raw Silk).

They're looking for families, groups of friends or colleagues etc. who want to set body goals for themselves and achieve them on the show, either by losing weight or building muscle.

The idea is to get fit and healthy.

This from the producers:

"Are you a family, a group of colleagues or Squad that want to be hashtag body goals for that family photoshoot, a wedding, look the part for that job and to improve your health? "

SABC 1 is giving you the ultimate opportunity to achieve your body goals and stand a chance to walk away with the grand prize on the coolest fitness reality show Squad Goals."

How to apply

You need to be between the ages of 18 to 45.

You must want to be fit and healthy, obvs!

If this You, you can apply as a group or on behalf of your group by sending the show a 30-second video explaining how the show will change your life.

You can reach them on this address:
