After being eliminated in weeks one and two, respectively, Alexandra White and Antoine Dove kept in touch. But unlike most contestants who remain friends following elimination, these two were doing much more than offering moral support, they were falling in love.
After her elimination, Alexandra admitted to having a crush on fellow contestant Antoine, and then announced that the two had begun dating. Two weeks later Antoine confirmed the relationship, boasting about the positive impact the two were having on each other’s weight loss journeys.
The pink team was able to continue the winning streak last night during the Biggest Loser season 8 finale. While Rebecca Meyer didn’t take the top prize as four previous pink team members had done, she did win the at-home prize, earning her $100,000 and justification for all her hard work.
Rebecca looked positively radiant in a sassy new pixie-cut and blond hair-do that took everyone by surprise. Rebecca joined Biggest Loser weighing 279 pounds, and dropped to 139 pounds to earn her the at-home prize. That’s a total loss of 140 pounds, nearly 50 percent of her total body weight. (more…)
Biggest Loser season 8 came to a close last night and Danny Cahill, a married father of two from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, walked away its newest champion. When Danny began his journey at Biggest Loser he weighed in at 442 pounds, one of this season’s heaviest contestants. When he punched through the paper image of his old self, he emerged a man unrecognizable. Not only has Danny lost a downright impressive amount of weight since May 2009, he’s done so in a manner in which he looks healthy. And even more shocking, after standing next to him, you can’t help but wonder where all that skin went.
Danny’s final weight was 191 pounds, a staggering 239-pound loss that equated to a 55.58 percent total loss of body weight. Very impressive.
Here is Danny’s interview live from finale with season four finalist, Hollie Self.
Now, Danny faces the hardest part of all, and we wish him all the luck as he continues his journey.
