    Sophia - Season 10



    Age:28
    Height:5'7"
    Hometown:Germantown, MD
    Occupation:High school counselor

    Twenty-eight-year-old Sophia has always been overweight, but life has been an even bigger challenge recently after the loss of her brother in a car accident, while juggling a very busy work and academic schedule. She works as a high school counselor, a cheer coach and a spin instructor, while also pursuing a Ph.D. in philosophy with a focus on higher education. She was born in Montgomery Village, Maryland, and grew up the second oldest of four children. She earned her bachelor's degree in social work from Morgan State University, and earned a master's degree in education at the University of Maryland, College Park. Currently weighing 272 pounds, Sophia wants to get healthy for herself, and hopes to inspire her family, friends and students to live a healthy active lifestyle. She says she looks forward to losing the weight and "being the athlete I have always known I am."

    What have we come to when 5'7" and 272 sounds "skinny"?

    I'm 5'7" and am freaking out over gaining 15lbs.....I can't imagine being 272lbs and considered skinny....

    It's all relative...when you live in the TBL world that's nothing!
    I just noticed she's a cheer coach AND a spin instructor! Don't you have to get on a bike to do that? Not just tell people what to do? She's probably pretty strong which will give her some advantage in some competitions...but she may not see the sudden weight loss because she's already exercising.... I guess just eating the wrong stuff.

    That was my thought. She is probably one of those people who love to work out but eats anything and everything. She just might be this season's Tara with winning a lot of the challenges.

    That's what I was thinking also, that she's a potential Tara. A spin instructor should have strong legs and be able to pull a lot of weight for example...like a car or an airplane or whatever they come up with this year!
