by at . Comments

Hines Ward was named the Dancing With the Stars winner Tuesday night.

Olivia Ward, no relation, was also a big winner - on The Biggest Loser!

Although they started this season of the NBC show as an under-the-radar twosome, sisters Ward (second from left, below) and Hannah Curlee became breakout stars following a sensational run during the trip to New Zealand earlier this year.

All her hard work paid off last night!

Also in the final four ahead of the finale were Irene Alvarado and Jay Jacobs, who vied for America's vote and the right to compete for the ultimate prize.

Joining Hannah and Olivia in an all-female final three was Irene, who became a best buddy to the Purple Team during the season. Among them, a winner emerged.

After an incredible 129-lb. weight loss over a span of eight months, New York City opera singer Olivia Ward was crowned Season 11's Biggest Loser.

The 5'9" Ward started at 261 lbs. and ended at 132 lbs. Her sister, Curlee, who started at 248 lbs., weighed in at 128 lbs. for a difference of 120 lbs.

Alvarado, who started at 255 lbs., weighed in at 139 lbs. for a loss of 116 lbs.

Essentially, they're all huge losers and all huge winners!

"For such a long time, I didn't even let myself imagine winning," Ward said. "I will say the last few weeks I was really pushing towards the finish line."

"I thought about that confetti! A lot of people told me to visualize that confetti. Man, I have to tell you, it was not even anywhere as good in my mind."

"It was just fantastic."
