Sunny Sinclair's Biggest Loser Elimination Interview
Sunny Sinclair might have become the hottest, and fittest, teacher in Frisco, Texas after her stint on Biggest Loser.
The only thing better than being in the final three on Biggest Loser is making it in to the final five. Makeover Week is the most exciting episode of the season and it's reserved for people like Sunny Sinclair who find themselves amongst the five remaining contestants on the ranch.
Following a challenge that required each of them to carry all of the weight they'd lost, 75 pounds in Sunny's case, the contestants were whisked away to Rodeo Drive where they went on a shopping spree and had an exclusive hair and makeup styling. It's the first chance some of them really have to assess the progress they've made in 11 weeks. After standing tall for the first time in heels on the red carpet at the Kodak Theater, Sunny was met by her husband with flowers. The celebration didn't last long though, as she was eliminated.
There are no red carpets at home or celebrity stylists, but that hasn't kept Sunny from shining in Frisco, Texas where she juggles a strenuous schedule as a mom, wife, school teacher, and Biggest Loser at-home prize competitor. "It's not easy to fit it all in," she said in a post-elimination interview. For now, it's what she has to do to prepare for the all-contestant marathon and the finale where she's eligible for a $100,000 prize.
"I won't do the same after finale," she said, admitting that it's not sustainable. However, she will continue to do some kind of exercise once a day. "I feel so much better and accomplished to do so much before the day has begun."
Her exercises are varied, including work with a trainer and simply playing with her family. After years of feeling like a recluse, Sunny is excited to be sharing the sport of tennis with her husband, a long-time passion of his. She also walks the golf course with him, although not particularly interested in putting. She also enjoys riding bikes with her son and even shopping, something she didn't do before. "I was not living my life," she told us.
One of the key players in helping Sunny return home a new woman, who's committed to not "going back to the weight I once was," is Bob Harper. Her original trainer helped Sunny maintain a position in the top five for total percentage of weight loss throughout the season. She recounted for us in the video interview above what it was like to take her back to Texas for a week as part of a prize she won early in the season. She called the experience amazing and priceless and said that her family would have adopted him if they could. He also gave her the confidence to walk in to her hometown gym with confidence. "Bob told me 'Who cares what people think, walk in like you own the place." She holds her head very proudly now in that gym, her classroom, and no doubt at the marathon finish line and finale stage.Flag this Video
