Michael Ventrella won the $250,000 prize after losing 264 pounds, which was more than 50 percent of his starting weight. He began the season as the show’s heaviest competitor ever at 526 pounds.  He brought a flower to his mother, Maria, who was his partner on the couples edition of the show and his “inspiration.”

Second place went to Ashley Johnston who lost 183 pounds (48.93% of her starting weight).  Third place went to Daris George, who lost 168 pounds (48.55% of his starting weight).
Earlier in the evening, fans chose between Daris George and Koli Palu to determine who would make it to the top three (joining Michael and Ashley).  The fans chose Daris, but Koli went on to win the $100,000 at-home prize.

      Hi,I graduated high scohol at 240 pounds and at 5 foot 3 that made me about as round as I was tall. I was one of those overweight teenagers who ate anything and everything without any regard to the effects it was having on my own body. Therefore, I began the diet pills, which did not work; I ate the special diet foods and even began drinking diet beverages. None of this stuff worked for me, just as it does not work for millions of overweight people. Eating less did not work and I was not one to work out or even get up and do anything remotely related to exercise. I knew I would look silly and it would hurt. I never thought or really cared about the health effects this would have on me, back then.A year ago after a successful weight loss plan, now at 120 pounds, it is a major difference. I’ve lost 30 pounds in the first month. The most significant change in my life is the amount of energy I now have and the way my clothes fit loosely. Everyone close to me and people I haven’t seen in a while are amazed and tell me that I look really good. This is a life changing experience for me although at first I was skeptical about the weight loss plan.Without getting too technical, there is a hormone produced by your thyroid gland called Thyroxine’ that raises the metabolic rate of almost all the cells in your body. The weight loss program has proven to be effective in the short and long-term, without need to endure starvation and without any daily athletic workout. (But taking a light exercise every few days is highly recommended). Best of all you can eat what you most enjoyed without gaining any weight The weight loss program is affordable by all and do not need to pay a monthly fees to use it. In contrast to diet pills regime where you need to buy it on a regular basis and you will gain more weight when you stop taking it.The success has inspired me to help others and you could contact me at if you need more details.
