The N's Student Body is an eight-episode reality television series that first aired on The N on July 11, 2008 that takes twelve students from high schools MacArthur and Eisenhower in Decatur, Illinois.

Tagline: Competition is tough. Change is tougher.


Host Laila Ali challenges twelve out-of-shape and overweight students from rival high schools to change their bodies, their nutrition, and their attitudes. The winning school takes home $25,000. Whoever loses the most weight wins $25,000 for themselves. The rules changed at the end of the competition, as the grand prize was awarded for "biggest overall transformation". The solo win went to Mike Walker for his overall change in attitude and self-esteem The Team Win was MacArthur.

Every week, the two schools compete in some sort of challenge. The school that wins the challenge gets a reward, such as a yacht ride or being served dinner by the other team. The losing team gets "punishment", like husking corn or cleaning the bleachers after a high school football game. The two trainers for the teen students were Eric Carlson and Sam Upton.

Weigh-Ins & Evaluations

After the challenge and reward/punishment, the schools go to the weigh in to find out what their current weight is, therefore evaluating how much weight has been lost that week. Later, the teams go to an evaluation where they are given 1 of 3 different rankings:

Green: the student is making good progress.

Yellow: the student is not making progress (3 yellows equal a Red)

Red: the student isn't invested in the competition and is asked to leave.
