This season of NBC's "The Biggest Loser: Couples" had Northern Utah well-represented.

It all started with an Olympic hero, Rulon Gardner, who gained national attention and then made more waves when he quit. Add a natural-born captain and a mother/daughter team from Bountiful, and throw in a surprise duo from Ogden in the middle of the season.

The season, which began as a team competition, ends tonight at 7 p.m. on KSL Channel 5. All of the Utahns were eliminated during the show's run, and they left the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Simi Valley, Calif., where the contestants train and are filmed. 

But five of them are still eligible to win the $100,000 prize for being the eliminated contestant to lose the most weight.
