Things are running amok over at "The Biggest Loser," reports TMZ, after contestants discovered that producers of the NBC reality show were planning to incorporate a dastardly twist.

The televised weight loss contest, which eliminates participants throughout the season until a winner gets a grand prize of $250,000, was apparently planning to bring back contestants that had already been kicked off to compete against remaining contestants. Those still in the running thought it was unfair to give losers that had already lost another chance, and so they staged a walk-off in the middle of shooting an episode.

How's that for a twist, NBC?

Filming was reportedly stopped as producers decide what to do with their mutinous cast.
