‘Biggest Loser’ Champ Kicks Young Butt

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Age is nothing but a number, unless you’re kicking peoples’ butts who are half your age.

After dropping an amazing 140 pounds on The Biggest Loser: Couples, 48-year-old Michigan mom Helen Phillips was crowned the winner of the reality weight loss competition this past Tuesday (May 12).

Phillips worked her butt off – literally –- training six hours a day at home, and admits that beating contestants half her age was a huge reward in itself.

She says, “I knew no one was working as hard as me. I knew I was stronger than a 24 and 18-year-old. They worked hard, but it feels good to beat them.”

It wasn’t just her younger opponents that got a whipping from Phillips. Her trainers back home, who are her son’s high school gym coaches, felt Phillips’ workout fury.

She laughs, “They’re these big football coaches and I was working them out at the end! I was like ‘I’m gonna win this thing!’”
