Bigger Loser Finalist Says Show Gave Her An Eating Disorder

The Biggest Loser is so bad for its contestants, the millions who watch the show, and the culture in general. A former contestant can attest to this better than anyone.

Season 3 Biggest Loser finalist Kai Hibbard and I spoke on the phone about her experiences on The Biggest Loser. From seeing her fellow contestants forced to workout with injuries against doctor’s orders, to the extreme dehydration prior to weigh-ins, to the resultant eating disorder that Kai still is working to heal, the story she told was nothing like the fantasy that the Biggest Loser seeks to promote.
