John beats Antone and Ramon to win season 12 of The Biggest Loser.

Despite the fact that the live Biggest Loser season 12 finale should have been named "let's talk for two hours" and saw just 6 people weight-in (3 finalists for the at home prize and 3 finalists for the $250,000 prize). Its all about the end result of this weight loss journey and whoever has lost the most weight (in percentage of weight loss) wins and on this night, it was Jennifer losing 145 pounds to win the at home prize of $100k and John losing 220 pounds to win $250,000 and be crowned the season 12 Biggest Loser winner.

But I have to hand it to everyone, everyone dropped a lot of weight and looked great with their new looks especially country music singer Vinnie who is engaged as well as Ramon and Jessica who found love on teh ranch. I wish them all the best of luck moving forward.

And if that wasn't enough and despite the fact that I named this one "Let's Talk for two hours", the format of weighing in of all of the at home prize people backstage and then just having the 3 finalists weigh-in live again on stage for the at home prize is a good format, it moves the show along, but still showcases each person.

Now I'm looking forward to season 13 of The Biggest Loser (No Excuses) with two trainers and a new twist that I might like, each pairing is two family members, but they're playing as singles. I don't care for the teams at all and would prefer to see them all play as singles. But this could work because its the best of both worlds. Sad though to see that Anna isn't returning to the show, but we still have two great trainers with different styles. I can't think of a better way to start off the new year then with weigh lose. Its a new years resolution for me.
