Welcome to the live Biggest Loser Season 15 finale! Tonight, the three finalists of the season, David, Rachel and Bobby, will face-off to determine who is the Biggest Loser. Before the main event, though, we'll have a chance to catch up with all of the eliminated contestants from the season. The trainers join Alison on stage to talk about the amazing season and the inspiring contestants they've helped along the way.
The trainers briefly discuss a few of the important changes the show has made this season. They fought hard to get Trainer Saves, and then each of them used their save on their first eliminated contestant (which was not what they intended). They also had the opportunity to be involved in the casting process, which made the eliminations later in the season tougher than ever.
Next, it's time to see how our contestants have managed since leaving the ranch. Jennifer, Fernanda and Hap enter, looking like completely different people. They're hardly recognizable, and each of them looks absolutely stunning. Alison chats with the contestants briefly about their immense success during and after the show.
Alison brings out the Biggest Loser Scale and explains how the At-Home prize works: each of the eliminated players will weigh in, and the player who has lost the highest percentage of weight will be the recipient of a $100,000 At-Home prize! Jennifer, Fernanda and Hap will hit the scale first. Jennifer clocks an incredible 104-pound loss over the course of the season.
Fernanda takes to the scale next. She was the first contestant eliminated from the competition, and she managed to lose 87 pounds all on her own. She couldn't be more proud of herself, and she deserves every ounce of it! Hap steps on the scale to log an 81-pound loss. He feels incredible, and his family is elated at his progress. So far, Jennifer is in the lead for a shot at the $100,000 At-Home prize.
Alison introduces three more eliminated contestants: Matt, Chelsea and Holley. The three contestants look like stick figure drawings of their former selves. Hap is about to get married, Chelsea went from a size 18 to a size 6 dress, and Holley is gearing up for the next Olympics tryout. Now it's time for them to weigh in!
Matt hits the scale to show off his 133-pound loss. He was only six pounds away from taking the At-Home lead! Chelsea owns the scale next with a 95-pound loss, which means that she's currently the At-Home leader! The competition is heating up, and now it's Holley's turn. On the scale, the Olympian clocks a 96-pound loss. It's an amazing accomplishment, but it's not quite enough to de-throne Chelsea.
Next, Alison brings out the new and improved versions of Tanya, Craig and Marie. The three competitors barely resemble their former selves, and they look more beautiful and confident than ever. After a quick costume change, the contestants hit the scale. Since they joined the cast, Tanya has lost 87 pounds, Craig has ditched 162 pounds, and Marie has abandoned 111 pounds to take the lead from Chelsea!
Next, the crowd is introduced to the new Ruben, Tumi and Jay. The three competitors look absolutely stunning, and Alison is speechless standing in front of them. Ruben hits the scale first. So far, he's lost 119 pounds. Tumi has had a long journey on The Biggest Loser, and she has a lot to show for it. So far, she's ditched an unbelievable 175 pounds, more than half of her body weight! Jay hits the scale to clock a 114-pound loss. It's an incredible accomplishment, but it's not enough to beat Tumi, who is Season 15's At-Home Winner!!!
Without further ado, it's time to see our three finalists. First up, it's Bobby. The new and improved Bobby looks like a stick figure compared to his former self, and Bob can hardly believe his eyes. Bobby is in tears before he even speaks to Alison. His time on the ranch has changed his entire outlook on life and it shows.
Next, Alison introduces David, one of the fan favorites of the Season. It's been a difficult journey for David, but now he looks and feels absolutely amazing. In a conversation with Alison, David explains that the key to success is a mental and spiritual change that leads to the physical transformation, and his time on the ranch made all the difference in the world.
Alison introduces the last finalist, Rachel. Rachel looks astounding, and the trainers can't believe their eyes. The fan favorite briefly discusses her path of self-discovery during her time on the ranch. Then, after a special performance from Ruben, it's time for the final weigh-in of the season!
Bobby takes the scale first. It's been a long journey, but in the end Bobby has lost a total of 188 pounds, over half of his body weight! Rachel takes the scale. Since she joined The Biggest Loser, she's lost 155 pounds, nearly 60% of her body weight. She takes the lead from Bobby, but David still has to weigh in. David takes the scale last. Since joining The Biggest Loser, David has lost 222 pounds! That's an amazing accomplishment, but it's not enough to beat the competition. Congratulations to Rachel, who is Season 15's Biggest Loser!
The three finalists weigh-in at the live finale, but only one contestant will be crowned The Biggest Loser.
