I Used to Be Fat), you probably don't have a clue.
The answer: a sighting of four past contestants from The Biggest Loser plus one from Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition on the live stage at Club Industry, a conference on all things fitness happening at McCormick Place in Chicago from October 12 to 14. Between being surrounded by the latest fitness equipment and spotting this quintet, I felt like I stepped onto The Biggest Loser Ranch. Except instead of contestants who looked like bloated, out-of-shape couch potatoes, the five proved that life after the ranch (or after a year of Chris Powell in Alex's case) can't be too brutal in terms of weight maintenance. Either the camera really does add 10 pounds or they're still losing weight and staying trim. From left to right, you'll find Jay, Marci, Courtney, Alex and Jen.
Jay and Jen Jacobs comprised the green team while Marci and Courtney Crozier made up the aqua team on Season 11. Alex worked with Chris Powell for a year-long weight-loss journey on Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (another motivational, life-changing show that captured my viewing interest much to my husband's dismay) earlier this year. And all five looked as recognizable as they did at their finale unveilings. Amazing!
