Detroit’s Biggest Loser winner to be announced

 Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition II winner will be announced at 9 a.m. on WDIV during America’s Thanksgiving Parade live broadcast

Start your Thanksgiving Day by tuning in to WDIV-TV at 9 a.m. to see the official announcement of the Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition II winner. Who will it be: Sandy Ray, Greg Czar, Tia Finney, Steve Anderson, Calvin Poellnitz or Mary Beth Klawender? Tune in to find out!

The announcement will be made by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan President and CEO, Daniel J. Loepp, before the contestants hop on the new Blue Cross “Get Fit” float. The float features physical activities you can do in Michigan such as skiing, biking and kayaking. At over 100 ft. long, the “Get Fit” float is one of the largest in the entire parade.

The Biggest Loser: Detroit Edition II is a local version of NBC’s nationally-televised Biggest Loser. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan health coaches provided counseling to each contestant as part of our mission to promote a healthier Michigan. The competition, in its second year, kicked off at The Parade Company on Aug. 30 and concluded with final weigh-ins on Nov. 16.

“It’s amazing to see the progress all of the contestants have made,” said Michelle Fullerton, Blues director of Wellness and Care Management Operations. “We hope that they keep up the hard work and continue to maintain their new, healthier lifestyles.”
