The Biggest Loser crowned Rachel Frederickson the season 15 winner this week, leaving everyone in shock with her emaciated look. We all saw the trainers faces when they got a glimpse of Rachel, and now, they are breaking their silence about it…sort of!
Rachel Frederickson proved to be a force to be reckoned with all season long on The Biggest Loser, so when it came to finale time, we all expected her to look slim, but not emaciated! And as viewers were shocked, we could also see the horrified look on the faces of Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels. Recently, both Bob and Jillian issued the exact same statement to their fans on social media, but they pretty much dodged the entire thing.
Here is what Jillian Michaels posted: “Bob and I want to take a moment to congratulate all of the BL contestants on their hard work. We’re not comfortable commenting on Rachel’s journey because weren’t her trainers and weren’t given an opportunity to work with her at any point. Any questions about the contestants on the Biggest Loser should be directed to the show’s producers.” Meanwhile, Bob Harper issued the same statement. Immediately after the statement was made, fans began to wonder whether or not the two trainers were placing the blame on Dolvett Quince, who at the time, did not issue any statement.
Since that time, Dolvett Quince finally broke his silence as well, telling fans: “Last night’s Biggest Loser Finale has sparked a huge reaction and I do not want the day to end without addressing it. Biggest Loser is a journey which has its ups and downs. Please try not to look at one slice of Rachel’s journey and come to broad conclusions. Rachel’s health is and always has been my main concern and her journey to good health has not yet ended!”
While yes, Dolvett was her trainer on the ranch, it’s completely silly to place the blame on him. Rachel left the ranch looking healthy and returned looking anorexic.
