Danni Allen Crowned Winner Of ‘The Biggest Loser’
Danni Allen won the title of "The Biggest Loser" on the finale for the NBC reality show’s 14th season on Monday night.
Allen, 26, dropped from 258 lbs. to 137 lbs. during the course of the show, losing a total of 46.9% of her body weight. Runner up Jeff Nichols, 24, lost 46.65% of his body weight, while third place contestant Jackson Carter, 21, lost 42.07%.
For coming in first place in the weight loss competition, Allen earned the grand prize of $250,000. The advertising account coordinator from Wheeling, Ill., told host Alison Sweeney before she was announced the winner, “I feel amazing. I know that no one can take this away from me. I feel great. It’s a tall order, but at the end of the day, look at me.”
Allen shed tears of joy when she realized she had won The Biggest Loser as confetti was launched onto the stage around her. She then turned to trainer and fitness celebrity Jillian Michaels, who returned this season after having spent the last two years working on other projects, for a grateful embrace.
What’s Allen going to be up to now that she’s lost 121 lbs.? Perhaps finding love. “I’m completely single and on the market, but that’s a whole new world for me. I don’t know what that’s going to hold. I’ve never been that girl,” the winner told Zap2It.com. “I think the best part right now is that dreams can happen. So let’s try it all. Let’s go.”
