The Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper admits he was shocked when he saw Rachel Frederickson walk out during Tuesday's finale and show off her exceedingly thin frame.
"I was stunned. That would be the word. I mean, we've never had a contestant come in at 105 lbs.," Harper says in an interview airing next Thursday on the Rachael Ray Show.
Frederickson, 24, started the show at 260 lbs. When she left as a finalist three months ago to work on losing weight at home, she weighed 150 lbs., and later lost 45 more.

At The Biggest Loser finale, Rachel Frederickson stood proudly on the scale to show off her 155 lb.-weight loss.
But rather than be a cause for celebration, Frederickson, 24, and her transformation has sparked concern that the 5'4" contestant may have taken her weight loss too far.
Frederickson started the show at 260 lbs. and, as a finalist, left the ranch weighing 150 lbs. to work on losing weight at home on her own. By the finale about three months later she had shed another 45 lbs. and weighed in at 105 lbs. to a size 0/2.
"I just love myself and I am embracing it," Frederickson told PEOPLE on Tuesday night, seemingly unaware of the concern over her appearance.

Biggest Loser contestant Bobby Saleem had lived with the stigma of obesity for years but it was another stigma – his shame over his sexual orientation – that weighed him down the most.
"I came from a background where for years I felt very ashamed about my sexuality," Saleem told reporters Wednesday. "I never really had a role model to look up to in my life."
But thanks to the mentoring he received on the ranch from trainer Bob Harper – who recently spoke publicly about his homosexuality – Saleem has not only lost 135 lbs. but has become more comfortable about living his life as an openly gay man.

Trainer Bob Harper has changed countless people's lives on The Biggest Loser, but his decision to come out publicly as a gay man could impact countless others.
"I haven't talked about my sexuality on this show ever," Harper, 48, said on the show's Tuesday episode. "I really do believe this is the right time."
That "right time" was influenced by his decision to encourage contestant Bobby Saleem to come out to his father, who was visiting his son at the ranch.

Monday's episode of The Biggest Loser featured "Cut the Junk" week on campus. Can you believe approximately 17 percent of American children ages 2 to 19 years are obese? How about this fact: approximately 60 percent of overweight children ages 5 to 10 already have at least one risk factor for heart disease? We are all to blame for this – parents, schools, kids – all of us.
During this week's quiz, the contestants were shocked by the staggering statistics, as was I. The childhood obesity epidemic in our country needs to be fixed. I battled with my weight as a teenager, partly because there wasn't the information or conversation about how to live a healthy lifestyle.
