Whatever happened to your favorite Biggest Loser contestants? Well, wonder no more as this Thanksgiving Biggest Loser will air a two-hour special taking in to the private lives of many of the show’s alumni. More than 30 contestants will appear on “Where Are They Now” to show you how their weight loss has changed their lives and how they look today.
Growing as popular for its love stories as it has for its weight loss success stories, you’ll get to watch the romantic proposal of season 9’s Sam and Stephanie, who recently visited the brand new Biggest Loser Resort in Malibu with Daris George. Not only that, but get access to the recent Lake Tahoe wedding of season 5 at-home winner Bernie Salazar to Jennifer, the cousin of his teammate Brittany Aberle.
You’ll see that these Losers really do walk the walk when it comes to fitness, as 50 of them meet to take on the San Francisco Triathlon, which took place this past summer. Representatives from every season since 2 participated, including Tara Costa, Ed Brantley and Brady and Vicky Vilcan. Plus, see pretty-in-pink Ali Vincent and Sherry Johnston appear at the Biggest Loser 5K event in Myrtle Beach, powered by the slogan “Don’t compete…just complete.” (more…)
There is a lot to take away from Kristin Steede‘s experience on The Biggest Loser. Not only has her weight loss journey from 360 pounds to her elimination weight of 244 pounds been an inspiration, it’s a reminder that we should rely on ourselves to get there. Kristin reminds that she is one of about 122 people who’ve been selected as a Biggest Loser contestant, and it is a position she does not take lightly. Kristin says she got more out of this experience than she ever thought she would, but clarifies that “Biggest Loser will not define who I am.” It’s a cautious declaration that many fans should take to heart. It is the few, not the many, who earn a place at the coveted weight loss ranch, but the will, desire and ability to lose the weight and change your life for the better does not come from the show.
Kristin said “I will never forget what it feels like to live life at 360 pounds,” and she is taking her new body, new motivation and the memory of what life used to be like and inspiring a nation. Kristin has developed quite a following and she’s offering them her pearls of wisdom through speaking engagements.
We received some of those pearls from Kristin today in our interview. Listen now as Kristin discusses her ongoing relationship with Bob Harper, how she kept her head out of the game play and how she defines a healthy weight for herself.
Keep up with Kristin’s journey on Biggest Loser: Couples all season long. Kristin joins partner and mom Cathy during the show’s seventh season.
