Did this season’s Biggest Loser lose a little too much weight? That’s what fans of the show are asking after the NBC reality show crowned its most recent winner.
Rachel Frederickson, a 24-year-old voiceover artist, was crowned Season 15’s champion and won $250,00 last night during the live season finale.
According to E! Online, Frederickson started the show at 260 pounds and lost 155 pounds, approximately 60 percent of her body weight. She now weighs 105 pounds.
Twitter exploded with concerns for Frederickson’s dramatic weight loss from fans watching along at home. Many pointed out, “she’s underweight for a woman of her age and size.”
“Reaction of the trainers on the biggest loser to Rachel.. Clearly something isn’t right,” tweeted @nikktayyy along with a picture of shocked Biggest Loser’s trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper from last night’s episode.
“I know it’s the biggest loser, but Rachel does NOT look healthy. She looked better @ the end of last episode,” Twitter user @maseorama said.
Other tweets poured in.
“#BLFinale rachel went too far. horrible message being sent by her and the biggest loser show,” @ky_ry23 added.
There were other fans congratulated Frederickson and cited her as an inspiration. NBC declined to comment on the subject.
“I’m at the maintenance point now so I need to find some balance and make sure I work out and I eat healthy and make good choices 90 percent of the time,” Frederickson said during her Today appearance. “I’m not sure (I’ll maintain this weight), but I plan to try new exercises and just continue on this path and see where that takes me.”
