It came down to the final weigh in as Olivia Ward squared off against her sister Hannah to determine who would be the winner in the latest edition of the ‘Biggest Loser’ on NBC.
“What do you see when you look at Hannah now?” host Allison Sweeney asked Olivia.
“When I look at Hannah I see a champion that I always knew was inside of her and now she believers it again. And to me that is worth everything.”
Then, Olivia stepped on the scale. Her starting weight at the beginning of the competition was 261 pounds. Five months later, at the final weigh in to beat her sister Hannah and win the $250,000 prize and the title of the “biggest loser,” the result was ready to be revealed.
To win, she had to have lost more than 126 pounds.
The computer screen began showing a variety of weights, scrolling through various numbers when at last, the final number was revealed.
132. It was a difference of 129 pounds and meant victory for Olivia.
She threw up both her hands in exultation, letting out a big scream and grin.
“Olivia, congratulations, you are the biggest loser!” said host Sweeney. “Come on down here, let’s celebrate.”
