Debbie Lounds, the latest local resident to appear on NBC's weight-loss reality show "The Biggest Loser," left the show on the first episode of this season.

But tonight, viewers get a chance to catch up with Lounds—and other contestants who've been ousted in the meantime—return for a special reunion episode one week before the season finale.

According to a press release, all 15 contestants from the current season will meet at the same spot of their first challenge. "All the contestants will race across the desert to win the marathon or stay above the red line at weigh-in. The trainers meet the contestants at different spots in the race, bringing tears of joy to one contestant and at the end of their desert race the contestants are shocked to see who stands in the winners circle," according to the announcement.

The show airs at 9 tonight on NBC.
