For those of you who always get down because your boyfriend can lose weight more quickly than you take note: When it comes to weight-loss, girls can bring it just as hard as the boys. The proof? Last night's The Biggest Loser finale where both the overall winner and the home winner were — you guessed it — women!
Olivia Ward took home the title of "The Biggest Loser," becoming the fourth female in 11 seasons to win the whole she-bang. While Olivia's dramatic 129-pound is impressive, what's even more impressive is that the final three in the running for the title were also women. Hannah, Olivia's sister and previous teammate, came in second place with an 120-pound weight loss, and Irene (the player America voted in) took third after getting down to a healthy 139 pounds.
If that wasn't enough girl power, the at-home winner was also female! Deni lost 125 pounds, beating out some seriously competitive guys for the $100,000 check. Say it with us now, girls rule!
