It all comes down to this. We've seen the 'before', we've endured the 'during' and it's time for the 'after.' This finale feels like as much of a reward for the viewers as it is for the contestants. This show carries so many painful and heartbreaking moments and now we can just celebrate. The trainers are all dressed up, and it's nice to see tough Jillian in a soft, feminine dress.
Jackson and Joe step out for their reveals and they look shockingly thin. Jackson eats up the love from the crowd and Joe is visibly choked up. The votes are in, and America has chosen .. JACKSON. Joe still has the chance to win the at-home prize.

Jackson comes back out for the final three reveal. Jeff comes out and looks like a kid. He's so small and has that healthy, youthful glow. His smile occupies 50% of his freshly thinned face. Danni comes out last and looks more like a action star than a contestant. She is TINY. She is cut and she.is.fierce. I'm pretty sure she is going to win, but we'll see.
Last kid reveal is my personal favorite, Sunny. She wants to fit into a beautiful prom dress. She's wise beyond her years. She struts out on stage in a prom dress and a beaming smile. Sunny is just gorgeous. All of the kids are amazing.
