    01) Danny (5'11") - 430 - 191 - 239 - 55.58% **THE BIGGEST LOSER**













    Other Little Tidbits of TBL9

    Danny has broken the three-season streak of a member of the pink team becoming the biggest loser. He is also: (1) the first male winner in three seasons; (2) the first brown winner (this one was a given though, since only the pink team has won ever since the show has introduced the multiple team colors); and (3) the first guy to win under the show's couples format, which was introduced in S5. As of this season, 5 males (Ryan, Matt, Erik, Bill, Danny) and 3 females (Ali, Michelle, Helen) have won.

    Danny has the highest percentage of weight loss of any contestant from all seasons of the show, ending with a weight loss percentage of 55.58%. He beats Helen, who had the highest weight loss percentage before him (54.47%).

    Technically, the pink team still won this season, as Rebecca became the at-home winner. So far, 6 guys (Dave, Pete, Brian, Jim, Bernie, Jerry) and 2 girls (Heba, Rebecca) have won the at-home prize. If you want to include Poppi from S3 (she won the competition among the state contestants who didn't train on the ranch), then there would be 3 girls.

    Danny's win would be considered as another Jillian win, since he was part of the black team and seemed--at least to me--to be more attached to Jillian over Bob. But if you notice the second picture posted above, both Jillian and Bob are smiling with him, which I believe implies that both trainers had an equal part in his journey (in the past, the winners would pose in a picture with only Jillian, since she was their trainer). That just shows how much the producers are trying to get rid of the competition between the trainers, considering this a co-win.

    Amanda has the lowest weight loss percentage of any finalist ever since TBL1. If Liz had been voted in, then she would have had this unfortunate honor. Both ladies were a bit disappointing in their home weight loss: Amanda lost 7 pounds between the last visit at the ranch and the finale, while Liz lost 6. Compare this to Rudy and Danny, who lost 45 and 38 pounds, respectively, at home. Maybe they thought they had no chance against Rudy and Danny?

    Ever since the beginning of his journey with TBL when he started out at 454, Daniel has lost 253 pounds.

    This season was nominated for "Favorite Competition Show" for the People's Choice Awards. This is it's first nomination.

    I've done these threads in the past (starting with TBL5), and if you want to check them out, here are the links to them: TBL5, TBL6, TBL7.

    Supposedly it is her natural color...Hard to believe...

    That said, they all look SO much better than before.

    I guess Julio was trying to copy his before picture stance a little??

    Ah! Thank you! I was trying to figure out what he was doing.

    And, does he ever open his eyes or is he in a perpetual squint. He always looks like he has smoke in his eyes or something.

    Well, I picked those two photos because that's what I thought he was doing. There were a few photos to choose from for each contestant, but I just went with the ones that we could easily compare with each other.

    They do all look so much better...I can't get over how much YOUNGER Danny looks!!! Amazing!

    Also, interesting that both Liz and Amanda ended up near the bottom totals for percentage lost...
