Season 15 of The Biggest Loser premiered on Tuesday night, and much attention was paid to the very famous face among the cast: Ruben Studdard, the Season 2 winner of American Idol. However, viewers with a good eye (and an addiction to MTV reality shows) may have recognized another one of the new cast members.
Contestant Holley Mangold is also no stranger to reality television. In 2011, Holley, who is an Olympic weightlifter, starred on an episode of MTV’s True Life called “True Life: I’m the Big Girl.”
During the episode, Holley proclaimed her body to be “360 lbs. of pure lovin’” and discussed how she used to be an offensive lineman for her high school football team. (For those of you that like “the sports,” Holley’s brother is Nick Mangold, who plays for the New York Jets.)
“When I look in the mirror now, I see something that I really like,” Holley said during the “True Life” episode.
