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!
