24-year-old Rachel Frederickson started out on Season 15 of The Biggest Loser weighing in at 260 pounds. Now that the show has come to an end, she’s left with the title of “Biggest Loser,” 59.62 percent of her body weight and a hefty $250,000 added to her bank account.
The young contestant went from a size 20 to a size 0/2.
The amazing transformation resulted in utter shock from the trainers. Trainer, Dolvett Quince said, “You’re a fighter and I saw it from you on day 1 and I brought it out, but you did it. You accomplished it. You fought, you fought and here’s your life back. You fought for it.”
Right before Frederickson stepped on the scare for the very last time she told host Allison Sweeney, ” just choosing to own my past and move forward in this life, and knowing that I can take control and do anything that I want … it’s been amazing.”
Frederickson decided to go on the show after a devastating breakup that left her feeling hopeless. “I truly came on The Biggest Loser to gain my life and get that second chance to take control and to be that confident girl again,” she said.
The runner-up for this season was 43-year-old David Brown with a total of 222 pounds lost. Brown is a project manager but because of his recent makeover, many are saying he’ll have a new career path in modeling. Brown decided to come on the show after he lost his wife to cancer and promised her that he’d be there to take care of their children. Worried he wouldn’t be able to fully commit to his promise because of his health, Brown decided to make a change-and boy has he committed.
Congrats to the biggest winners!
