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…)
That spunky girl who raced out of the Biggest Loser bus on episode one has transformed into a confident, determined, wiser woman. Rebecca Meyer says her week 10 elimination was due to game play, because she was a “huge threat in the game,” due her to top percentages throughout the season.
That elimination didn’t keep Rebecca down. She is positively thriving at home. With a current weight of 157 pounds, and a new love in her life, Rebecca has become the person she always wanted to be.
Listen now as she tells about her romance with fellow contestant Daniel Wright, a person she says is her best friend. She’ll also talk about who the new Rebecca really is.
