Last night it was time for the season 15 finale of The Biggest Loser, where one of the three finalists would be crowned the winner. And it proved to be a shocking finale, but it wasn’t good ole Ruben Studdard, that shocked us, it was the show’s winner! Details inside…
Season 15 of The Biggest Loser came to a close last night as Bobby, David and Rachel were back to battle it out for $250K and the title of this season’s Biggest Loser. Before we tell you who won, we’ll get into the not so shocking contestants. First, there was Ruben Studdard, who as we expected, was in the last group of at home contestants to get weighed in. Ruben lost a total of 119 pounds, and while we congratulate him on his loss, that’s only a few pounds more than he told reporters he lost back in December. Somehow, we were not shocked by that. Ruben also took the stage to perform his new single, which was incredible.
Then there was Holly the Olympian, remember her? We could tell as soon as she walked out on the stage that she had not been working as hard as some of the other contestants. Holly ended up losing over 90 pounds, but for someone of her size and strength, we were expecting more – she barely looked any different than when we last saw her. Holly did manage to invite Bob to the Olympics, if she makes it next time around, that is.
Most of the other contestants who returned for the at home prize looked amazing. But it was Tumi who stunned with her incredible loss of 175 pounds and walked away with the $100K prize. So who walked away with the $250K prize? First, let me say that we knew it was going to be a close call just by looking at how much weight all three of the finalists had lost. Both men did great as Bobby lost 188 pounds, and David, the fan favorite of this season lost a whopping 222 pounds.
But it was Rachel who shocked us. Rachel lost a total of 155 pounds, as she weighed in at 105 pounds. Rachel lost a total of over 59% of her body weight, breaking Danny Cahill’s previous record of over 55%. However, the most shocking part of her win was that Rachel did not look healthy at all to us. Usually, when they all come back to the finale, most of the contestants look healthy, but Rachel’s loss looked extreme and almost anorexic. Check out Rachel’s new look below and tell us what you think:
