After taking an insane risk by willingly not eliminating NFL player Antone Davis a few weeks ago when he had the opportunity, John Rhodes was crowned the winner of The Biggest Loser‘s twelfth season. Everybody thought he was crazy, but he knew that if Antone were his final challenger, he’d psych himself out and push harder and further than he would otherwise.
That gamble paid off to the tune of $250,000 and a weight loss of 220 pounds. That’s 49.44% of his overall body weight. So, yeah, John Rhodes feeling pretty good today.
But we feel we should salute every contestant for their amazing achievements. They overcame really tough odds and put themselves back on the road to good health. A sincere congratulations to all who competed.
