The Bigger Loser: From Overweight to Underweight — Rachel Frederickson

Written by , Posted in General

Rachel Frederickson stunned viewers of The Biggest Loser, having dropped 155 pounds over the course of seven months. The problem? She’s now UNDERweight. Clocking in at 105 pounds provided a startling reaction, with twitter followers quick to take the show down a peg by claiming it glorified her weight loss to the detriment of her health. As for Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper, the show icons avoided the issue, saying, “Bob and I want to take a moment to congratulate all of the BL contestants on their hard work. We’re not comfortable commenting on Rachel’s journey because [we] weren’t her trainers and weren’t given any opportunity to work with her at any point. Any questions about the contestants on the Biggest Loser should be directed to the show’s producers.” Watch the folks over at The Today Show avoid the topic altogether.
