A former Biggest Loser contestant has slammed the show for sending the wrong message with its choice of contestants in the current series.
Jodie Gormly lost 42kg in just 12 weeks while appearing on The Biggest Loser in 2015.
However, watching the current series has made her feel like that incredible achievement wasn’t good enough.

Current contestant and primary school teacher Steph’s talk of wanting to trim down ahead of her wedding hit a sore point with Jodie.
As she shared on Facebook, Jodie got married after the show ended – and did so weighing more than Steph’s starting weight of 102kg.
“The Biggest Loser: Transformed made me feel like starting bigger as a contestant that our transformations weren’t good enough,” Jodie wrote.
“Especially when the woman was talking about getting married – when I got married I was bigger than her starting weight.
“Is the show saying I was too big to get married?”
