No Minnesotans will be competing in the next season of "The Biggest Loser" -- unless we temporarily decide to "adopt" a very close neighbor.

Lisa Rambo, a 37-year-old high-school special education assistant, resides in Houlton, Wisconsin, a town of less than 400 people that lies on the St. Croix River, just across from Stillwater.

Rambo, the mother of four children, said she wants to shedmuch of her 246 pounds to engage in more kayaking, among other things.

A couple twists this season: Three kids will compete against the 15 adults this year as the show focuses on child obesity. (Rambo has said she hopes to one day open a special-needs gym for overweight students).

Also: Jillian Michaels is back!!!

The new season premieres at 8 p.m. Jan. 6.
