When Rachel Frederickson revealed her weight loss on The Biggest Loser finale, even Jillian Michaels was agasp. Until now, though, she hadn't opened up about it.

"I was stunned," the trainer told HuffPost Live.

"I thought she had lost too much weight."

Michaels said the show implements a number of checks and balances, including having the trainers check in with contestants even after the ranch.

But she had no idea Rachel Frederickson had been losing so much on her own, bringing her weight loss total to a staggering 155 pounds (out of 260).

"In my opinion, this had fallen through those checks and balances," she said of The Biggest Loser winner and her controversial season-ending reveal.

Frederickson herself has since said she may have gone to an extreme, admitting: "Maybe I was a little too enthusiastic in my training to get to the finale."

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.

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."

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."

Rachel Frederickson revealed she'd lost a whopping 155 lbs. - including 45 in the past three months alone - to win this season, and spark controversy.

Now, experts in health, fitness and public relations are weighing in on The Biggest Loser and how it can be improved for future seasons and contestants.

1. Set limits on how much contestants can lose. Those who deem Rachel Frederickson too skinny argue that she was allowed to go way, way too far.

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."
