Ever since Rachel Frederickson was revealed to have lost 59 percent of her body weight during the Season 15 finale of “The Biggest Loser” on Tuesday (Feb. 4), plenty of people have been vocal about the reality show winner’s startling slim down.
One voice who had been noticeably absent from the conversation, however: Frederickson’s trainer on the show, Dolvett Quince. It wasn’t until late on Wednesday that Quince finally spoke up, taking to his Facebook page to release a statement about the controversy.
“Last night’s ‘Biggest Loser’ Finale has sparked a huge reaction and I do not want the day to end without addressing it,” Quince writes. “‘Biggest Loser’ is a journey which has its up and downs. Please try not to look at one slice of Rachel’s journey and come to broad conclusions. Rachel’s health is and always has been my main concern and her journey to good health has not yet ended!!”
Meanwhile, fellow trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels have chosen not to comment directly on Rachel’s weight loss, instead referring questions to “Biggest Loser” producers in identical statements released on their Facebook pages. The producers, meanwhile, say they support Rachel.
What do you think about Quince’s statement?
