ATLANTA -- "Atlanta's Biggest Loser" is now accepting entries for contestants for the show's fifth edition.

Like its national cousin, this season of "Atlanta's Biggest Loser" is a couples' edition. Any kind of couple can apply -- siblings, parent/child, co-workers, friends and every pairing in between.

The deadline to apply is noon on Friday, Feb. 18 at www.atlbiggestloser.com.

"Atlanta's Biggest Loser" will officially begin on Monday, Mar. 7. Six teams of two will work with one of 11Alive's two fitness partners, D.R.E.A.M. 1122 or Go with Greer.

Throughout the competition, all contestants will receive a five-day-a-week meal plan from Good Measure Meals absolutely free. The winner of "Atlanta's Biggest Loser" will also get a gift certificate from RK & Co. Jewelers.

Representatives from WellStar will monitor the contestants' progress; the results will be revealed every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. on Atlanta & Company. On alternate Wednesdays, finalists from one of the teams will weigh in, and the person with the lowest percentage of body weight will be eliminated from the competition.

Those who are not selected for the show can still join the "Atlanta's Biggest Loser" e-team and receive weekly updates and encouragement for their own weight loss goals.  Visit the "Atlanta's Biggest Loser" Web site for details.
