Anyone watching Biggest Loser Finale?

Can I just say that Rachel looks like she's lost TOO much weight?!?! In all the years I've watched this show I've NEVER said that about any contestant. But she looks anorexic! It's scary! Even Jillian looked mortified when Rachel walked out! She is NOT athletic anymore...she looks underweight.

It was sad. Are they going to reward anorexia? From one extreme to another. Jillian and Bob looked concerned. I hope it was just to win and she will settle into a more healthy weight and lifestyle.

I agree with u all. It's just wrong, very disturbing to see Rachel so thin. She was so beautiful, healthy, strong looking leaving the ranch. All for a quarter of a million dollars, she can eat now, I hope.
The show has got to make changes and stop the madness.

Yes, I hope it was just for the win, and that she will settle at a more reasonable weight. I believe she is 5'6", so 105 IS kind of scary. I agree that Bob and Jillian looked concerned.

But I have read that for the final weigh-in, they do some crazy stuff to drop water weight. Maybe she is chugging fluids right now, and settling in to a good breakfast of eggs and bacon.

Good Morning America I think it was posted an article with a screen cap of the reactions behind her of the fellow Losers - they looked shocked and scared. She doesn't look healthy, that is for sure. I know she worked hard, but I do wonder about her maintaining that kind of loss, and if she has developed a problem over this journey.

I've seen different heights for her but most seem to say she was 5'4". 105 is I think too low for that height. Her face and arms and legs looked like she had lost a bunch of muscle, her core seemed more normal. I'm not sure what she did when she left the ranch, because the previous episode she looked great and I can't remember her previous weight but she clearly either severely restricted eating or did some extreme cardio or both. I have a lot of issues with Biggest Loser, but continue to watch it, if to do nothing else than criticize some of the advice. I do like seeing great transformations and I think some of the people who go home early on and still have great progress show that getting started is the most important step, and they are almost more inspiring that those on the ranch to the end.

Seeing Rachel at the final was disturbing and made me instantly think that she had developed an eating disorder from this entire experience. I hope that is not true, and it was all to just win and she is having a nice big steak right now with lots of green veggies. We will see how she reacts to any questions or concerns about this and I'm very interested in the biggest loser organization's response to everyone's concerns.

I find it interesting that on the official twitter pages of NBC's Biggest Loser, Bob and Jillian's official pages too, there are NO current posts. They all posted quite a bit before the show and now nothing. I'm sure NBC's PR people told them not to say anything until they figure out their statement.

I take that back. An hour ago Jillian posted that her and Bob do not feel comfortable commenting on Rachel's weight loss because they were not her trainers and to direct any comments or questions to NBC. Wow LOL!

Just googled it and got the answer from "Reality-Rewind" site.

Here is a quote:


"As far as the winner of The Biggest Loser 2014, that would be Rachel Frederickson. She lost 155 pounds and 59.62%! Mind you that that is incredible, but she did not look good. She made a major transformation, but you could see it in the trainers’ faces and the faces of the other contestants during her reveal. I think it was shock and concern on their faces, as Rachel looked extremely skinny! She is 5’4″ tall and weighed in at 105 pounds! The healthy weight for a female that height is between 108 and 132 pounds. The low end is always on the skinny side, so she even falls below that! I just hope she did this in a healthy way!"

I am leery about diagnosing people with eating disorders over the Internet (like a lot of people are doing elsewhere). Lyle McDonald has an interview with a BL contestant on his website and they do some crazy stuff in the days leading up to the final weight-in to shed water weight. I didn't watch the show but it's very possible that Rachel is very depleted and dehydrated and will gain 10-15 pounds immediately as soon as she starts eating and drinking again (from water and glycogen) and be back to a reasonable weight.

I just watched it and I don't think she looks too skinny. I think she could put on about 10 lbs and it would look good, but she doesn't look anorexic to me.

BTW, the mock outrage around the 'net is funny.

"Oh noes! She lost weight in an unhealthy manner!"

Really?

Have you watched the show?

The whole point is to crash diet in an attempt to win money.

Having watched the entire season I think she lost too much. She was an athlete in school and was getting back to the athletic build she previously had. From the last point I saw her on the show before the final she lost an additional 45 pounds. So it was shocking and it was my opinion that she looked much healthier before the finals. I agree that no one should assume she had an eating disorder, but the change was very extreme. If she is heathy and happy then that is really all that matters. Just hope she is.

I have to admit, my first thought when I saw her was that she didn't look healthy. I didn't watch the show, so I didn't have any knowledge about her prior history of ED (or borderline ED behavior?), but I admit that I wondered if she was teetering on the line.

I have read about crazy behavior before the final weigh-in, though, so I decided to chalk it up to that, giving her the benefit of the doubt. I hope that's all it was, and that she'll end up with healthy behaviors, and at a healthy weight for her body.

By the way, my little rant wasn't aimed at anyone here. Just some of the blogs I've read today (which I can't link to).

I'm sure Rachel isn't too worried about the whole thing. She has 250,000 reasons to not care.

I think most of us are accustomed to people being heavier now-a-days. I weighed 105 when I was in my early 20s, late teens and I am 5'4. I definitely didn't have a eating disorder. However, like I said, she could weigh 10-15 lbs more and it would only enhance her appearance.

I agree. I know when I lost weight before, I suddenly had people telling me I was "too thin" and to stop dieting. I was nowhere near "too thin"; it's just that I was thinner than average.

It's like you can't win. You are either too fat or too thin. People seem to only be happy for you when you are overweight and actively losing.

Also, after a rapid weight loss, it seems it can take your body a little while to redistribute things. That can make you look a little gaunt before things settle down.

As for Rachel, she looks pretty cut right now but I still think that it will settle down now that the show is over and she rehydrates and fills those glycogen stores back up.

She's smaller than the hostess, but she looks great to me. Her butt looked flat in her dress, but that is probably genetic. I couldn't lose mine if I got down to 90 lbs.

ETA: What's that shadow on the front of her shirt? Sweat, spanx?

Rachel at 150 when she left the ranch, 90 days before the finale. HERE she looks fit, muscular, healthy and 24yrs old.


Here she is at the finale at 105lbs. Someone said she looked toned? If by toned you mean boney, then yes I agree. And she looks like she aged 20 more years in 3 months. Sorry I don't see her looking "great" here. But everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

I think the picture you posted is a bit misleading. She was still pretty heavy at 150 lbs, especially in the legs.



Like Cindy said, she would probably look best somewhere in between the two weights, 125 - 130 lbs, or so.

Her legs looked way better at the finale. Like you said, Frosty, she probably went lower than she intends to stay, in order to win. I don't blame her for that!

Well we all have different opinions on what we like and see. Some people LOVE calamari, I hate it, think it tastes like deep fried rubberbands....I'd take her legs at 150 over them at 105 but that's just me. Oh heck who am I kidding, I really love my own legs, they are shapely and muscular, now my stomach on the other hand, ugh! LOL!
