After winning the temptation challenge, the decision of who to send home this week on The Biggest Loser
was in the hands of Koli
. Between Vicky
, he chose to let Sunshine stay because he felt she was working harder. So Victoria Andrews, the 22-year-old student from Houston, was eliminated. She spoke with reporters about Koli’s decision, her current weight, and finally being able to cross her legs. --Nina TylerHow did you feel about Koli’s decision to eliminate you?
I believe that he eliminated me because I was the biggest threat and he knew how hard I worked but he had to give an explanation of why he was voting me off. To say that I needed to kick it into another gear -- basically saying that I didn’t work hard -- wasn’t true. I mean it is a game and the game was played. Were you at a disadvantage because you started the game at home and came back to the Ranch later?
There’s no excuses. I was given this opportunity and I’m so grateful for it. I was thrown in late in the game. I felt like I was a single coming into a couples game but I knew that coming in. I knew that there were twists and turns associated with the show. I believe that no matter when I came in, I was going to give my best so it didn’t really matter to me when I was in I was just grateful to have the opportunity. What’s the biggest challenge being away from the Ranch?
The biggest challenge right now is everybody wants a piece of you -- your friends, your family, who don’t know you who have seen the show. You have to learn how to juggle everything you’re doing. Everything that you had prior to the show is now back in your plans and your day-to-day routines, so just being able to balance everything that is going on plus the stuff that you want to do that you now have an avenue to do. Time management is really the hardest thing to do because we still have the finale, so we still have to workout.
What’s your current weight?
I weigh 230 pounds and I am about 40 to 45 pounds off my weight goal for the finale. I’ve been kicking it into another gear. I just have to finish.What is one thing you can do now that you couldn’t do before?
My favorite thing to do -- and I know it sounds so little -- I love to cross my legs. I said this from the beginning, I want to cross my legs in a pair of Louboutins at the finale. That’s my thing. To cross your legs is beautiful, but just to put the icing or the cherry on top with a pair of Louboutins, I would love that so much.
