Runner up of Season 11's Biggest Loser and co-founder of  

Hannah’s  biggest motivation for going on NBC’s The Biggest Loser was her overwhelming desire to overcome depression and gaining a life without limitations.  Like her sister, Hannah, too was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).  She  earned a bachelor’s degree in communications and public relations at the University of Alabama. In her high school days, she was the homecoming queen and star athlete, but avoided her 10-year high school reunion because, she says, “I was too ashamed to let everyone see what I’ve become.” Weight didn’t become an issue for Hannah until she was 20 years old. She had an accident, which resulted in emergency back surgery and ended her collegiate sports career. Feeling defeated, she began to gain weight.

When 32 year old Hannah stepped onto the scale for the first time at The Biggest Loser she weighed 248 pounds and 22 weeks later she wowed 8.5 million viewers, having lost 120 pounds. Today, Hannah tours the country speaking about the importance of nutrition and wellness and maintains her weight loss through cardio workouts and early morning boot camp regiments.
