And speaking of Bob, he and Jillian are on hand to talk about their favorite moments. Jillian's was Ali's win as the first female Biggest Loser. That was, indeed, a good one. Bob's favorite moment was season four's Patty on the bike, straining to tell him that she's worth it. So subtle! So Bob.
And then it's time to check in with everyone's favorite season five at-home winner, Bernie. He's getting married! Bernie's bride's name is Jennifer, and he met her when he was trying out for the show. Get out! Jennifer was not selected to be on The Biggest Loser, but her cousin Brittany was. NO! ZOMG! If you'll recall, Brittany and Bernie were stranger teammates who then became adorable friends. Now, two years later, Bernie is marrying Brittany's cousin. Both Bernie and Brittany look great and really, really happy. Bernie now weighs in at 173, a far cry from his 283 pounds when he started the show. Good for him! Man, something about these stupid Where Are They Now shows occasionally wipes all the cynicism right out of me.
Remember Amanda? We, America, voted her in during season eight. She's wanted to go skydiving her entire life, but once was too big to pass the weight limitations. Now, she's light enough, though I think she's wearing 70 pounds of makeup. Amanda skydives, and the parachute opens, and it's a victory. Her current total weight loss is 70 pounds, before makeup.
And then there's Hollie from season four. Her time on the ranch sparked a desire to change her life entirely. Not only is she Toni Collette's doppelganger, she's part of the Biggest Loser crew! She's worked her way up the ladder, and now gets to interview contestants and the like. She says that watching the contestants every day is constant motivation to stay healthy. Hollie can also convey the message to contestants that making a permanent change is do-able. Hollie still gets choked up thinking about her experience, and considers herself to have a blessed life. The Biggest Loser helped her to get her health back, and showed her that it's never too late to change.
Meanwhile, season eight winner Danny wants us to make mashed cauliflower for Thanksgiving. Aren't our Thanksgiving dinner farts bad enough already?
