Who Won The Biggest Loser?

by at . Comments

There's no squabbling among judges on The Biggest Loser. No controversy over who gets eliminated each week and who goes on to collect the $250,000 grand prize at the end of the season because there is no voting.

There is simply the scale, the numbers it reads and the resulting eliminations. Therefore, we can't debate the merits of the "Battle of the Ages" winner, can just offer our congratulations to...

... John Rhode!

This 41-year old special education teacher and football coach from Mesa, Arizona dropped 220 pounds throughout the competition. That adds up to 49.44% of his initial weigh-in body weight of 445 pounds and, to put it mildly, is truly astounding.

A job very well done, John!


Kellie M., need to read carefully, as John is SPECIAL education teacher.

Education teacher? Isn't that a little redundant?


I find TBL to be too extreme. I did that kind of shit as an anorexic. Numbers, numbers, numbers.....and the stories of TBL contestants sitting in saunas and peeing blood (previous seasons). To be fair I have not seen this season and wonder what tricks they used this season to drop weight for the weigh-ins.

If I could exercise 8 - 10 hours a day and had a dietician I could lose gobs of weight too. But I dont, I just cut my servings down to normal portions which helps lose weight too. A lot slower but it works. I have lost 49 pounds in two years. Snail slow but steady.


wow a job well done keep up the good work i struggle with loosing weight but i know i can do it god bless u and keep it up!
