Biggest Loser Winner Anorexic?
I used to watch NBC’s The Biggest Loser religiously. There was something really amazing about watching all of those people change their lives and become healthy. One of my friends was even on the 4th season and continues her healthy lifestyle today. But the show has gotten a lot of flack because of how contestants prepare for weight in day. And now the show is getting even more bad press after last nights season finale.
Season 15 of The Biggest Loser ended last night crowning a new winner. Rachel started off the show at 260lbs. She worked her butt off and dropped 105 pounds before leaving the ranch to continue her journey at home until the finale. While at home Rachel lost another significant chunk of weight. After last nights reveal, people are criticizing her and calling her anorexic. I think the video speaks for itself. Just look at Bob and Jillian’s faces.
The trainers seemed stunned when they saw Rachel and not a good stunned. While she was training at home before the finale, she lost another 50lbs. But did she take her weight loss to far? She looks really bone thin to me, but maybe she has a tiny frame. The back story of Rachel is she was a competitive swimmer, but had a bad breakup and ended up eating her way to 260lbs. I wish we could see what she looked like in her prime swimming days.
And here’s Rachel doing an interview after she won the competition.
The show is about getting your life and health back, but at the end of the day it’s still a competition with a pretty big cash prize. Perhaps she did what she had to do to win the competition. If that’s the case hopefully she will put some weight on and get back to being healthy and not bone thin.
