The Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson, 24, visited Today this morning, and if she was looking to quell criticism of her appearance, she succeeded.

She certainly appeared much healthier than earlier this month, when she won The Biggest Loser and shocked the world with her astonishing weight loss.

Rachel Frederickson on Today

The former swimmer dropped 155 pounds (starting from 260 when the show began) in just a seven-month span, and stunned viewers with her big reveal.

Even trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper were stunned.

Rachel Frederickson came under fire for being too skinny and the show itself was criticized for what some believe is a lack of ethics and oversight.

But since then, the former swimming standout seems to have slightly filled out, with much less severe facial features in what she calls her "maintenance mode."

Forget the demand for the ever-popular Kim Kardashian sex tape.

Something else related to her won't stop growing: Her rear end!

According to the latest issue of celebrity gossip tabloid In Touch Weekly, Kim is going through a "diet disaster" because her "butt won't stop growing!"

Look at that thing! It's bigger than the ego of Kanye West!

Sorry. These people just make it too easy sometimes.

The magazine alleges that during a recent outing in L.A., Kim's “backside strained to escape the confines of her trousers,” an embarrassing incident documented on the cover above.

Jessica Simpson has got her groove, and post-baby body, back.

The singer-turned-designer recently posed in a swimsuit for her new spring clothing line, and she’s giving us two tickets to the gun show in the photo below.

Seriously ... do you need a concealed weapon permit for that?

Simpson’s sexy flexing photo was snapped on set of her new Weight Watchers ad, for which she shows off her slimmer figure in a fitted black halter dress.

“This body made two amazing little human beings. I love this body and what it’s capable of, no matter what size,” the mom to two little kids proclaims.

“But I’ll be honest, this version feels really good," the 33-year-old adds. "My body, like my life, is a work in progress, but I’m getting there with Weight Watchers.”

When Rachel Frederickson unveiled her 155-pound weight loss in just seven months on The Biggest Loser finale, jaws literally hit the floor. Or at least fell in that direction.

Jillian Michaels' reaction was priceless, while the 24-year-old's trainer, Dolvett Quince, admits he was as "shocked" by her appearance as the viewing populace.

"The first thing that went through my mind was, 'That's just too much,'" he said.

Rachel Frederickson tells People that perhaps she competed a little too hard, working out six hours a day in the three months leading up to her astonishing reveal.

"Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in training to get to the finale," says the contestant, who won $250,000 on The Biggest Loser, and who also defends her actions.

Asked point blank whether she has an eating disorder or whether she is too skinny as a result of dropping to 105 lbs., Frederickson replies, "I am very, very healthy."

The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper admits that he was as shocked as anyone when he saw Rachel Frederickson walk out during Tuesday's finale.

"I was stunned. That would be the word. I mean, we've never had a contestant come in at 105 lbs.," he says in an interview on the Rachael Ray Show.

Rachel Frederickson, 24, started the show at 260 lbs. Yes, 260.

When she left as a finalist three months ago to work on losing weight at home, she was 150 lbs. Between then and the finale, she lost 45 more.

It was the latter that shocked Jillian Michaels and her Biggest Loser trainer counterparts as much as it did longtime fans of the popular NBC competition.

"What people don't understand is, when the contestants leave to go home … they're in charge of themselves," says Harper, 48, of the show's process.

"So, I had not seen her until that night, and so when she walked out, I was just kind of like, whoa. And I’ve been on the show since the beginning, forever."
