Trailer Choir’s Big Vinny to Be on Biggest Loser

New trainers for NBC show include tennis great Anna Kournikova.

"Big Vinny" Hickerson of country duo Trailer Choir (“Rockin’ The Beer Gut”) will try to be a little less big on the upcoming season of NBC reality show The Biggest Loser.

Big Vinny’s trademark move on awards show red carpets has been “the worm,” so it’ll be interesting to see if he breaks it out for a national TV audience.

Vinny will be part of a brand-new look for the show, as Bob Harper will be the only returning trainer. The show is adding tennis star Anna Kournikova to replace Jillian Michaels.

Speaking of sports, former Philadelphia Eagle Antone Davis—who got up to 447 pounds—will also be a contestant this season.

The new season begins Sept. 20.
