America Votes for the Biggest Loser Final Three: Jay or Irene?

Irene vs. jayThe last position in the final three on The Biggest Loser goes to the contestant who’s won over the viewers’ hearts. In season 11, America must choose between Irene Alvarado and Jay Jacobs, a tough choice. Sisters Olivia Ward and Hannah Curlee are safe after an impressive season of consistent weight loss.

Jay made a big comeback on the ranch after being eliminated in week seven. He’s proved his determination in the face of adversity. On the other hand, Irene lost her teammate and support system when her mother was eliminated in the very first week. She also struggled with self-esteem issues, but managed to work though her emotional challenges to become the first woman to lose over 100 pounds in this season. Will Irene make the cut for the first all-female finale? Or will Jay edge Irene out?

We’re taking an unofficial poll–to see who’s ahead among DietsInReview readers!

Be sure to cast your official vote at NBC.

Obviously, you won’t want to miss the live finale next week. DietsInReview will be there with Mark Pinhasovich to talk to all of the contestants about their amazing weight-loss journeys, so after the show be sure to check our site for exclusive interviews.

We at DietsInReview want to congratulate each of the final four for making it this far in the competition and inspiring many around the country.

Irene has worked harder than Jay. I really wasnt to see Hannah win though. Her confidence has really grown as the season has gone on. NBC always shows a videoclip of the finale but is always misleading . A couple seasons ago they showed Koli as the winner and lasty season they showed a clip of Frado. This time they showed Olivia. She's not going to win it. It'll be between Hannah and the viewers's choice. Irene and Hannah both deserve to win.

OK Everyone basically Hates the sisters. And love Irene but think that Jay has a better shot to win. I think Irene does Because:

1- She has weight to lose she was (144 lbs) with a bmi of 24.7 which means she could lose 20 more PLUS she already has the highest percentage of weight loss
Irene : has to lose 17 to get 50%
Olivia : has to lose 19 to get 50%
Hanna: has to lose 22 lbs to get 50%
Jay: has to lose 42lbs to get 50%

Easier for Jay to lose 42 or for Irene to lose 17

Hardest vote ever on TBL. Irene works hard and is the resident Loser, but Jay still has about 60 pounds to lose. I'm going with Irene because of her commitment (reminds me of Ali) but as long as any of them beat both of those awful sisters in the end, I'm good with it.

It was a hard choice- I liked Irene better but Jay has a better chance (based on weight left to lose) to beat those horribly obnoxious purple team girls who I simply despise. I went with Jay.
