It’s been an exciting week for Danni Allen, the advertising coordinator turned reality show champion on The Biggest Loser. Right now, Danni’s basking in the praise that accompanies a big reality TV win. In addition to the usual congrats from friends, family members, devoted fans and trainer Jillian Michaels, she’s also received positive feedback from her employer!
Even if she hadn’t won the title of Biggest Loser, Danni Allen would have been happy to be a part of a reality weight loss competition. Before the big weigh-in that cinched her championship, the contestant confessed, “ I know that no one can take this away from me…I feel great.” Of course, she felt even better after learning of her big victory, but Danni still maintains that the biggest victory involved overcoming her fears and getting healthy.
Danni’s employer shares in the conviction that a healthy lifestyle is the most impressive achievement. Before joining the show, the contestant worked as an advertising coordinator for Camping World and Good Sam, a company that sells (you guessed it!) camping gear. CEO Marcus Lemonis feels that, win or no win, Danni’s efforts would have reflected well on his company. “As a company we are pleased to share in Danni’s achievements in reaching her health and fitness goals. She is a shining example of corporate wellness and the entire company and the RV industry was rooting for her from the beginning.”
A press tour and an attempt at the Chicago Marathon are both in the works for Danni Allen, but we’re not sure yet when or if she’ll be returning to her job at Camping World and Good Sam. Either way, we’re sure Danni’s coworkers are very proud of her accomplishments!
