Kai Hibbard : Former Biggest Loser Contestant Shares Show Secrets

Kai Hibbard calls the reality series ‘a fat-shaming disaster’ and reveals she had to do excessive exercise and diet that became detrimental to her health under the order of her trainer.

“The whole f- -king show,” she tells the New York Post, “is a fat-shaming disaster that I’m embarrassed to have participated in.”

“You just think you’re so lucky to be there, that you don’t think to question or complain about anything.”

In addition to being cut off from contacting their families, once at the “ranch” the five to eight hour workouts began immediately.

“There was no easing into it,” Kai Hibbard says. “That doesn’t make for good TV. My feet were bleeding through my shoes for the first three weeks.”

“My hair was falling out,” she says. “My period stopped. I was only sleeping three hours a night.”

Kai Hibbard claims that even though she was on the show back in 2006, the runner up’s “period is irregular” and her hair falls out to this day. “My thyroid, which I never had problems with, is now crap,” she revealed.

“One of the other ‘losers’ and I started taking showers together, because we couldn’t lift our arms over our heads,” says the other contestant. “We’d duck down so we could shampoo each other.”

Trainers Didn’t Care About Contestant Pain

She says the trainers, weren’t sympathetic to their agony. “They’d say stuff like, ‘Pain is just weakness leaving the body.’ ”

“By the end of the show, I was running on 400 calories and eight- to nine-hour workouts per day. Someone asked me where I was born, and I couldn’t remember. My short-term memory still sucks.”

Kai Hibbard, lost 121 pounds to end up at 144, put weight back on after the show but she declined to reveal how much. But despite being held up as a weight loss role model she feels the need to let people know the brutal truth behind shedding those pounds.

“If I’m going to walk around collecting accolades, I also have a responsibility (to tell the truth),” she says. “There’s a moral and ethical question here when you take people who are morbidly obese and work them out to the point where they vomit, all because it makes for good TV.”
