The Voice's Erin Willett Opens Up About Her Struggle with Bulimia and Joining The Biggest Loser

Originally posted 12/01/2015 01:30PM

After coming in fifth on the second season of The Voice, Erin Willett felt lost.

"I went through a lot of changes all at the same time," Willett tells PEOPLE of coming up short on the NBC reality singing competition just before losing her father to cancer. "I struggled with a little bit of depression and bulimia and trying to figure out how to love myself. I just couldn't do it."

Though she'd "became comfortable" in her own "skin" while in college studying marketing, Willett says the public scrutiny she faced while on The Voice ate away at her confidence.

"I was 22 years old and just seeing the world for the first time, really," she says. "And people are mean sometimes. Especially when they're hiding behind a computer. For every 10 amazing tweets and comments, there would be that one that I would just focus on."

Though there have been rumors of an all-celebrity version of The Biggest Loser for years, the show's on-camera medical consultant, Dr. Robert Huzienga, says a couple familiar faces will definitely be popping up on the weight-loss show's upcoming 17th season.

"We have two celebrity additions," Huzienga (known on the show as "Dr. H") told PEOPLE exclusively at The Brent Shapiro Foundation Summer Spectacular in Beverly Hills on Saturday. "I'll probably get chastised by NBC publicity, but we have two nugget surprises in there."

Filming began last week, but Huzienga, who is also an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles, can't reveal the identity of these celebrities. However, he promised the stars are just as in it to win it as everyone else.
