EP. 30 – Life after the Biggest Loser: Dishing with Season 5 winner Ali Vincent
Meet Ali Vincent, the winner of NBC’s hit show The Biggest Loser season 5, and the first-ever female winner. A former champion synchronized swimmer, Ali set foot on the Biggest Loser ranch weighing 234 pounds. After weeks of hard work and dedication to health and fitness on the ranch and at home, Ali stepped on the scale at the finale weighing in at 122 pounds- 112 pounds less than her starting weight. This successful weight loss was enough to earn Ali the title of Season 5 winner and the first-ever female winner.
After meeting Ali at the Crave NW event in Spokane, I had the chance to dish with her and hear how the experience on The Biggest Loser changed how she sees her health and just how important food plays into that journey. Three children later, Ali is in a new season of life taking her journey to the next level and being a role model for the most important people in her life – her family.
Maybe the most important lesson: forgiveness. This is a show you won’t want to miss.
‘ There’s never been a moment that I’ve not been healthy, that I haven’t wanted to be healthy.’ – Ali Vincent
