Reality Loser Set To Be Next Richard Simmons

GREENVILLE, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being a weight loss wonder has inspired one reality reject to become the next Richard Simmons.

When Kristin Steede arrived on The Biggest Loser: Couples weighing in at a whopping 360 pounds, she didn’t realize that she’d one day inspire men and women to get healthy.

Since getting the boot from the weight loss contest this past Tuesday (Apr. 21), Steede has returned home to Greenville, Wisconsin, and provided inspiration to fellow fatties by holding lectures.

She says, “I love having the opportunity to share what I’ve learned. [Trainer] Bob Harper told me I’m a messenger because I was the biggest in the competition. I know I have the opportunity to help people of my size.”

Steede has dropped more than 116 pounds to date and is considering hitting the road much like Richard Simmons after the show’s finale.

She’ll be leaving the bright running shorts and headbands at home though.

The Biggest Loser airs Tuesdays on NBC.
