The Biggest Loser Season 16 Finale: Who Won the Title?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

After a grueling season in which former sports standouts sought to recapture their Glory Days, The Biggest Loser has crowned a champion at last.

Toma Dobrosavljevic, Sonya Jones and Rob Guiry survived 17 episodes of sweat, tears and flat out grueling workouts to make it to the live finale.

There could be only one winner, even though all three have won at life, and on The Biggest Loser Season 16 Episode 18, the victor was revealed ...

Toma Dobrosavljevic, Sonya Jones, Rob Guiry

All three finalists revealed astonishingly impressive numbers on the scale this winter, but having dropped 171 pounds to end the season at 165 ...

Toma Dobrosavljevic wins!

The 33-year-old senior project manager from Addison, Ill., lost a higher percentage of his weight than his fellow finalists, claiming the $250,000 prize.

"I'm so overwhelmed," Dobrosavljevic said. "This experience has been so rewarding already, and to be declared The Biggest Loser is so amazing."

Coming in second was Jones, a 39-year-old physical education teacher from Springfield, Ill., who lost 144 pounds to weigh in at the finale at 139.

Guiry, a 26-year-old rugby coach from Springfield, Mass., lost the most total weight at a staggering 238 pounds, finishing the season at 245.

Both Toma and Sonya lost more pounds than their total body weight at the end, with Guiry almost doing the same. Truly remarkably for all three.

Winning the $100,000 at-home prize after being sent home earlier this season was Jordan Alicandro, a 32-year-old sales manager from Canada.

Alicandro lost 143 pounds for a final weigh-in of 180.

"I was up against some tough competition but I worked really hard for this," said Alicandro of taking home the best consolation prize around.

His plans for the cash? "I was fortunate to go through college debt free, and this money will be going towards a college fund so my son can do the same."

Congratulations to Toma, who takes over for Rachel Frederickson (below) as NBC's The Biggest Loser, and to all of the contestants this season!
