The Biggest Loser finale is always a night filled with tears of joy and more skinny bodies than the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and Feb. 4’s Season 15 finale proved no different. Find out who won below!

‘The Biggest Loser’ Finale: Rachel Fredrickson Crowned Winner Of Season 15

Excuse us, but we’re still drying our eyes as we type…

‘Biggest Loser’ Rachel’s Extreme Weight Loss — How She Went Too Far

‘Biggest Loser’ Tips

After all was said and done, Rachel Frederickson won $250,000 and the title of Biggest Loser. Rachel went from 260 lbs to 105 lbs and looked far too thin if you ask me, but she won either way. The runners up — 43-year old David Brown and 28-year-old Bobby Saleem — looked amazing as they went from 409 to 187 and 358  to 170 lbs, respectively.

Of course, the other contestants looked pretty spectacular as well. Tumi Oguntala won the at-home prize of $100,000 after dropping from 319 to 144, while American Idol alum Ruben Studdard went from 462 to 343.

I love Rachel and want her to win but she was scary thin not healthy thin. Hope her weight obsession doesn’t go the other way into anorexia.

Shocking, I’m speechless, and not in a good way. She looks sick, not fit. She looks and sounds like she has been puking for several months. Face is gaunt, there seemed to be a shake to her, skin and hair look awful, voice is different, and no muscle tone- basically skin and bones. Really sad, and I think the show is going to see a lot of backlash for this.

I know I said to my husband that her voice had changed! She was out of breath and had the shakes. Not once did Alison say anything to her about how good she looked either. She def needs to gain 10 lbs back! She looked so pretty before the finale, my mouth dropped when she walked out tonight.

I could not believe how thin she was. I agree she looked so unhealthy. I’m thinking she took pills or some sort of fat burners… she fell on the step because she is so frail . makeup was horrible, she looked like death. Not the portrait of health.

Rachel is 5’4″ and weighs in at 105 pounds. She looks way too skinny and looks borderline anorexic. She has lost all muscle tone and doesn’t look healthly. Makes me sad!!

Rachel was my favorite and I thought she was going to look fantastic and she looked horrible. Tumi truly looked fantastic. They all did except for Rachel. David should haves been the winner because he did things the right way and Rachel obviously starved herself

I totally agree with you on this!! I thought the same way. I have been recovering from Anorexia Nervosa within the last 3 months. I have restored some of the weight I lost. I looked the same way, so I know for a fact she is anorexic. I feel sorry for her because I know what it is like to take weight loss too far! =(

Rachel STARVED herself to win this competition, or worse…. she’s become anorexic. Very scary looking. I pray she will put on at least 10 lbs and settle into a healthy weight range.

I wanted her to win but when she came out….. I couldn’t believe how thin she looked. Not the healthy athlete but someone who looked starved. Sad!

I am so proud of her dedication and I am not trying to diminish her success, but I agree she looked WAYYYY TOO THIN! 105 lbs for her height is too thin. I pray that she just lost that weight hoping to win the grand prize and will now go back to a healthy weight.

Rachel looked too skinny. I hope Jillian or bob talks to her! Being to skinny is as dangerous as to fat!

Yes! She looks way too thin. Not nearly as healthy as she looked the previous show. She was so competitive and really wanted to win but might have gone too far. The look on Jillian’s face when she walked out showed her shock too. I think people were a little uncomfortable.

Way too skinny! Was hoping David would win, because I think this reflects poorly on the show… she didn’t look healthy.

Wow. Poor thing I hope the show offers some support and counseling. They are going to get some serious bad attention for her unhealthy weight. The name of the game should be “healthy”. Poor girl.

Agree- Rachel looked too thin. She took it too far. The show claims they’re watched by a doctor but it seems like a doctor should have stopped her earlier. I could barely watch her.

I agree as well. The show credits clearly say “the contestants on this show were observed closely by doctors”, and if they were I don’t think Rachel would’ve come out like that. I was team Rachel all the way!…, Until she came on stage. She clearly starved herself and is now anorexic. I couldn’t BELIVE that the “sweet 24 year old little girl” turned into that. I’m praying she will gain at least 15 pounds back.

I felt sick when I saw her come onto the stage. Being a former anorexic and knowing what it can do to your skin, your face, your overall muscle tone, I could not help but feel like she may have lost the extreme weight in an unhealthy way. I worry for her, am happy for her win, but hope that she can put on a little healthy weight to balance her and give her organs the energy it needs.

The biggest loser is about promoting health not anorexia. I personally do not think Rachel deserved to win. She looked disgusting
