By Mike Walsh

According to reports, NBC's "The Biggest Loser" has been cancelled after 17 seasons.

The show's resident doctor, Dr. Robert Huizenga, claims that a former contestant's allegations are what put the show on the chopping block. 

According to former contestant Joelle Gwynn, who appeared on the show in 2008, the contestants were given diet pills to "aid" in their weight loss.
