The Gruntdown: Watch the Top Ten Moans From The Biggest Loser

Grunts, gasps, and moans are as critical to the Biggest Loser aural landscape as Darth Vader's breathing is to a Star Wars movie. And last night's eleventh season premiere of the weight-loss contest was reassuringly alive with the sound of pain and fatigue as a new crop of contestants were forced on treadmill death marches. Like snowflakes (or at least, like the snowflake cliché), no two "gaaah!"s or "errrrffff"s are alike, so we carefully analyzed all of last night's gasping and picked our favorite for a Top Ten Gruntdown.
