Jamie Lyn and Michael are furious with Loralie and Chantal for voting
Anthony off after the fifth stage, so they devise a plan to stop short
of the finish line, denying the remaining marchers $240,000 in
winnings. The group comes full circle to face their biggest challenge,
walking a marathon-like distance of 26.2 miles from Sharpsburg to
Knoxville, Maryland, and there is one last test for the most fantastic
grand prize ever, on the season finale of "Fat March," MONDAY,
SEPTEMBER 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.
With total of 450 miles walked, there are six remaining marchers, each with a chance to win $40,000. Our competitors take on a grueling 26.2 mile marathon, as they grind their way from Sharpsburg to Knoxville, Maryland. The finale challenge at a Woodbine, Maryland strawberry farm tempts everyone with an extraordinary reward and tests the marchers’ increased agility, perseverance and endurance. The winner will receive top of the line in-home fitness equipment, a one-year membership to a health club and six months of private, personal training. In the end, the victor gets to choose someone to share this incredible prize; the choice is totally unexpected and comes as a big shock to everyone.
After walking a total of 575 miles, the contestants end in our nation’s capital, Washington, DC., where the group is finally reunited with family and friends who get to witness the tears, emotions and spectacular weight loss they have achieved.
