Alison Sweeney Speaks on The Biggest Loser: Families

at .

While it's not as hyped as other premieres - such as The CW's new 90210 - at least some people are excited for The Biggest Loser: Families. It will debut on September 16.

Host Alison Sweeney recently told reporters on a confernce call that the show's sixth season will begin with "four teams of husbands and wives versus four teams of parents and their children."

"Every person is on their own journey. So even though they come together as a family, they each have their own experience," said the Days of Our Lives star. "So for me, I have to approach it with what's appropriate for that person in that moment."

Still, the actress acknowledged that family members competing on The Biggest Loser are different than the series' history of individual participants.

"Something that strikes my heart very closely is the parents and their kids, and how parents take responsibility for being the role model that brought their child to this point and seeing how they deal with, 'Okay, I'm sort of part of why you're here. I'm part of the problem, now let's both be part of the solution.' Obviously emotions run high and feelings go extremely deep in all the people involved."
