Joe Mitchell's Biggest Loser Elimination Interview
Joe praises Biggest Loser's trainers for his success.
"Biggest Loser has been an amazing experience," said Joe Mitchell after his elimination in week 8 of season 12. At the time of his departure Joe was in second place for total percentage of weight lost, having lost almost 23 percent, or 62 pounds.
He told us this experience at Biggest Loser was the first time in his life he'd ever lost weight. "It's natural to have that kind of dependency" he says about his original trainer, Bob Harper, to whom he credits with helping him with his success. After seven weeks with almost undivided attention from Bob, Joe was moved to Anna's team in a game-changing twist.
"Anna made me believe I could do it," he says about the freshman trainer who many fans doubt. She drilled in to Joe, and his housemates, that idea that the only person you can count on is yourself. It's a message he's taken to heart.
Joe also appreciated his time with Dolvett, crediting him and Anna for helping everyone on their journeys to health. "Dolvett and Anna would work you out, they did not care whose team you were on."Flag this Video
