Biggest Loser Winner Rachel Frederickson: Did She Go Too Far?

Originally posted 02/05/2014 05:05PM

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.

Alison Sweeney's Biggest Loser Blog: Meeting Winter Olympic Athletes Was Inspirational

Are you all getting excited for the Winter Olympics? I have to say, the week we spent in Park City, Utah, was so incredible. To meet the athletes, to see where they are training and to watch their intensity and focus was inspirational. I personally loved meeting the U.S. Women's Curling Team and the U.S. Women's Bobsled Team and I loved traveling with the contestants, trainers and the Biggest Loser crew.

As much as the travel week is nerve-wracking for contestants, I could tell it was also reinvigorating for them. During the challenge, when the contestants started curling, it was pure comedy but they quickly got into their competitive spirit – Jay wanting to not win and have a greater target on his back and the rest wanting to win the $5000 prize. The competition was so exciting and Rachel coming from nowhere to win was particularly impressive. You have to give Rachel credit – she's willing to put the target on her back to keep focused on the life-changes and competition instead of the game play.

I know it's wrong but I love to surprise the Biggest Loser contestants with new and unexpected challenges.

When we got to the diner, I knew they thought we would be having a pop challenge and then return to the ranch, but when they learned that instead some of them would be working at the diner for the week, the gravity of the situation was realized.

This week was all about Jillian doing what she does best on The Biggest Loser.

Bob had just had a truly emotional goodbye with Hollie, and emotions were already running high when I told the contestants that one would be going home with his or her trainer. When Jay put his face on the wheel, I could tell how much he wanted it to land on his face and for him to go home to see his family.

Biggest Loser's Craig Arrington: There Was No Foul Play in My Elimination

Craig Arrington: No Foul Play in My Elimination

Originally posted 11/16/2013 03:30PM

Craig Arrington's life-long battle with obesity began at the age of 10 after he lost his father to a heart attack. But thanks to The Biggest Loser, he is feeling lighter both on the scale and in his heart.

"It felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders," Arrington, told reporters Wednesday of visiting his father's grave after being eliminated from the NBC show. "I really felt for the first time he was proud of me and I couldn't wait for him to see me."

Arrington, 30, arrived at the Biggest Loser ranch with a lot of guilt for having allowed himself to get to 385 lbs., but after being saved by his trainer Jillian Michaels when he was eliminated the first week, the warehouse supervisor began to find the inner-strength needed to be successful on his weight-loss journey.
