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.
