RECAP: The Biggest Loser III Season Finale

It's time to give away some serious money in the Season 3 Finale of "The Biggest Loser"! First, one of the At-Home players will win $50,000. MatthewMcNutt from Maine and Poppi Kramer from New Jersey are the ones eligible, because they have the two biggest percentage losses amongst the losing At-Home contestants. Kramer goes first. She started her journey at 232 pounds. Her weight tonight- 115, meaning she lost 117 pounds! That's a percentage of 50.43%! That's going to be a tough number to beat, as McNutt needs to lose at least 185 pounds to win. Starting weight: 366. If his weight goes down to at least 181, he's the $50,000 At-Home winner. New weight is.....
