Megan Hoffman, 35, from Simi Valley CA, arrived on the ranch at 290 pounds. She lost 83 pounds for a total weight loss percentage of 28.62% winning the "at home" prize of $25,000. "My biggest transformation was not even my weight, it was my mind shift and the ability to start taking myself and my dreams seriously. I gained my life back on more than just a health level. I'll never settle again and I owe that to 'The Biggest Loser'," Hoffman said.

All 12 contestants reunited and met with host and mentor, Bob Harper, to review their current medical test results compared to where they started.Robert's sleep apnea rates per hour has gone down by half. Megan's sleep apnea is gone. Teri and Micah had high cholesterol, now the levels have gone way down as has their risk for heat disease and stroke. Kim and Dom both were pre-diabetic at the start of the season, and neither are pre-diabetic anymore. In week one Jim found out he had Type 2 diabetes. He has 100% reversed it and is clear of any diabetes or pre-diabetes. Kristy, Phi, Dolores, Kat and Kyle's starting weight gave them a 90% chance of dying from an obesity related complication. Those risks are now dramatically reduced. As a result, all 12 contestants now have a longer life expectancy. 


The season was hosted by Bob Harper and featured trainers Erica Lugo and Steve Cook. All contestants on "The Biggest Loser" went home with a year-long membership to PLANET FITNESS, a personal nutritionist, and access to local support groups.
