Of the contestants we have seen so far, has the greatest “bombshell” potential – she has a pretty face, but…
Looks to be filling the quiet young female role previously held by Laura last season and Fiona during the early stages of the first season. Fiona eventually came out of her shell, particularly once Artie and Tracie stopped keeping her away from everyone. Laura also bloomed later in the show, thanks primarily to the attention of Shannan.
Pure speculation at this point, of course.

My reason(s) for applying for Biggest Loser are:
I truly believe that I need to be in a controlled environment where I can fully dedicate my mind, time and energy to losing weight once and for all.

I first realized I was overweight and needed help when:
I have been overweight since I was 9 years old but only decided I needed help this year. I have finally realised that if I don’t do something about my weight now I will most likely never get rid of it and have some serious health problems in the future.

I hope to lose weight but gain:
Happiness; life; fitness; strength; self-control; patience; friendship and belief in my own abilities.

The previous contestant I have found inspiring was (and why?)
Damien; because of his 100% commitment to each challenge, despite being the largest contestant.

The best part of being on Biggest Loser is:
Being surrounded by like-minded people who are all working towards the same goal and experiencing the same feelings, emotions and struggles.

I am preparing myself for this journey by:
Thinking about how much I truly want to change my habits, lifestyle and body now and into the future.

I think the most difficult part of being on Biggest Loser will be:
The exercise and being away from my gorgeous friends, who I rely on so much in my everyday life.

My biggest weakness is:
Comfort eating whenever I am sad, stressed or bored.

Some bad habits I would like to get rid of are:
Smoking; over-eating; over-indulging; impatience and lack of belief in myself.

The one thing I want Australia to know about me is that:
I am strong and independent woman who can reach her goals.

I think I will win the Biggest Loser because:
A woman has never won before and I think I have the physical strength to push through and claim the prize. Although, losing my weight will be worth more in happiness than any money could ever bring.

One thing I have never done because I was overweight and will do once I lose the weight will be to:
Try skydiving- you have to be under a 100kgs.
