Biggest Loser Kai Hibbard: I Participated in Something That I Feel Is Harmful to So Many People


Erica Hill spoke with former Biggest Loser contestant Kai Hibbard and her husband Jake Hibbard about allegations that contestant weight-loss is misleading.

A week is not a week. Weight loss that was represented as being lost in a week, was actually longer than a week.

Biggest Loser isn’t a weight loss camp that happens to be made for TV, it’s a TV show made to look like a weight loss camp.

All she would eat was coffee and Splenda.

She came back with her hair falling out. She met a real trainer who directed her back in the right direction.

Hibbard has heard from at least six other contestants of Biggest Loser who had experiences that were just as bad or worse.
