'Biggest Loser' Castoff Melissa Morgan On Fight With Trainers Bob And Jillian: 'It Broke My Heart'

Even though Biggest Loser trainers Bob and Jillian were positive Melissa Morgan was just playing the game instead of losing weight, she still denies it.

Personal trainers Jillian Michaels and Bob Harper were positive the latest Biggest Loser: Couples castoff Melissa Morgan wasn’t legitimately working to lose weight and was trying to throw the game so she could win the grand prize of $250,000. But she says that’s not the case at all.

“I was as real as real can be,” Melissa, a 39-year-old attorney from Aspermont, Texas, explained Feb. 10. “My heart was broken that they didn’t trust I was telling the truth.”

The notorious “game-player” from the Red Team started the show at 233 pounds and is now down to 175 pounds, but she repeatedly lost little weight while on the Biggest Loser campus, leading the other players and the trainers to think she was trying to manipulate the game.

According to Melissa, she wasn’t game playing at all — her body just doesn’t drop weight as easily as other people. “My roller coaster ride has been consistent at home as it was on the ranch,” she claimed. “One week I lost zero, another week I gained three.”

Ultimately, the mom of two isn’t concerned with being a specific weight. “The scale is not the end all be all,” she reiterated. “For me, it’s about being healthy.”

Do YOU shed weight easily when you’re working out and eating healthy, or is it still a struggle to drop excess pounds?

I couldn’t stand Melissa! I am so glad she is off the show. I just can’t stand people who play the game and hurt other contestants. Also, what is this “to be continued” nonsense?! I want to know the second person who left the show this week! I am obsessed with The Biggest Loser. Thanks for your great coverage of the show!
