There is no doubt that one of the biggest stories this week was the jaw-dropping weight loss of The Biggest Loser winner, Rachel Frederickson. All week people have been talking if the show has driven people to go too far with their weight loss. Is Rachel’s weight sending an unhealthy image to the public? At first The Biggest Loser trainers weren’t saying much about the dramatic weight loss, but finally Bob Harper has some comments. Keep reading to find out what Bob has to say and then take our poll – we want to know what you think!
There is no doubt that Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels looked nothing less than shocked when Rachel showed off her 155 pound weight loss on the show’s finale. Social media went crazy after the finale and viewers wanted a response from their favorite trainers. But the two original trainers, Jillian and Bob, took a generic approach and said they really couldn’t comment because they never trained with Rachel.
Finally Bob Harper had more to say about this controversial winner. Bob taped an interview for The Rachel Ray Show that will air on February 13th and he had to admit that he was “shocked” when he saw Rachel. “What people don’t understand is when the contestants leave to go home they’re in charge of themselves. I had not seen her until that night, and so when she walked out, I was like, ‘Whoa.’ And I’ve been on the show since the beginning, forever,” Harper shared with Rachel.
So now we want to hear from you. Rachel Frederickson was criticized for being overweight and now she is being called anorexic. Is that fair? Can this girl win? Take our poll below and let us know what you think.
