After all of the controversy in the 2012 season of Biggest Loser, the finale promised to be very exciting. Last week had Jeremy Britt fighting to get back into the final three, after being forced out in episode 16. He was successful and so the final three competing for the $250,000 prize were Kim Neilson with brother/sister duo Jeremy and Conda Britt.
The contestants who have been sent home had a chance to win $100,000. This was based on total percentage lost from the first weigh in at the ranch. Mark Cornelison, Buddy Shuh, and Joe Missina were illegible to partake as they had quit the show.
The weigh-ins for at-home contestants, in order of percentage lost, were:
Mike Messina- Starting weight: 358, current weight: 198, percentage lost: 44.69%
