After a series of unsuccessful diets, Jennifer Jacob aims to reach her ideal weight goal while inspiring other people to live a healthy lifestyle as a contestant on The Biggest Loser season 11. Born and raised in New Jersey, she attended William Paterson University where she earned a bachelor's degree in sociology and currently works in the field of digital media.
Jennifer, whose initial weight was 278 pounds, was eliminated in week 13. In spite of this, she was able to bring down her weight to a total of 164 pounds by the time The Biggest Loser finale aired.
-She realized that she has a weight problem after seeing the film The Nutty Professor, in which she related to Eddy Murphy's character.
"My entire life, I have lost and gained weight, and I wanted to understand why that is, overcome it and learn how to live a long, healthy and balanced life."
