Christine Pickler is a “Loser” no more.
Pickler, a Middlebury resident, was eliminated from the NBC reality TV program “The Biggest Loser” in an episode that aired Tuesday.
Her weight at the start of the competition was 240 pounds. Pickler had lost 68 pounds by her final weigh-in. However, her 172 pounds was a two-pound gain from the prior weigh-in.
Pickler and her husband Roy signed up to be contestants on the show together. Roy was voted off the show in an episode that aired in February.
The “Biggest Loser” website offers a synopsis of Tuesday’s episode that includes Christine calling Roy to check in.
“(Roy’s) been feeling a little low and lonely,” according to the website. “Chris didn’t anticipate that she would make it this far on the show; thus she had no way of knowing how long they’d be apart. Saying there’s no substitute for his wife, Roy asks Chris to come home. Chris admits she’s scared to realize how much is on her plate at home, and she’s feeling the pressure. “Feeling angry and disgusted, Chris seeks comfort in food, just like she always did before the ranch ... Afterwards, she fears the old Chris might creep in and take over. This is just something she’s going to have to fight.”
During the weigh-in, according to the website, Pickler knows she did some damage with her diet.
“Tearing up, she admits that after her phone call with Roy she started binging,” the synopsis reads. “She’s not surprised to learn that she gained two pounds.”
During the latest “Loser” episode, Pickler tells the other contestants that she’s been truly blessed.
“She’s going home to her family and a tremendous sense of accomplishment,” the site reads.
