Shannon Thomas, who was sent packing from The Biggest Loser: Couples this past Tuesday (Feb. 17), has found a way to let out her frustration and drop the pounds.
Upon her elimination, Thomas joined a roller derby team and now goes by the name Flower Power when shes knocking babes on their butts in the rink.
She says, Its a tough competitive sport. We work out five times a week. Its a great source of exercise for me and its fun.
Thomas roller derby name stems from her flower child nature, and admits, Im a little hippie girl. Its very fitting for me.
Though shes a sweetheart off her skates, Thomas says she has to be tough during derbies or else shell get destroyed.
She says, I feel bad hitting the girls sometimes, but my teammates say thatll go away.
The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
