If you’re like me, you begrudgingly watched last night’s premiere of The Biggest Loser: Glory Days with your wife, then your eyes bugged out of your head when new trainer Jennifer Widerstrom was introduced, and you quickly pulled out your phone to google her, acting like you were just checking your email or something. Widerstrom is a decorated fitness instructor and philanthropist who grew up doing gymnastics, lifting weights, and idolizing Arnold Schwarzenegger, and was a hammer-thrower at the University of Kansas. She’s also a stone-cold fox with a body that seems to be carved out of the finest marble.

Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen her on television. Jennifer previously appeared on the NBC re-boot of American Gladiators, where she competed as “Phoenix” during season 2. Back then, her hair was dyed bright red and she carried an intimidating amount of muscle; we wouldn’t have recognized her now, and we definitely approve of the more natural look that she’s going with these days.

In honor of our new TV crush, check out 22 of our favorite Jennifer Widerstrom photos in the gallery above, and get to know her better on twitter and Instagram.

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.
