Olivia Ward is an opera singer who has lost numerous opportunities in her career, no thanks to her poor eating habits and her sedentary lifestyle. The singer, who has a degree in vocal performance from the University of Alabama, as well as a master's degrees in vocal performance and opera performance from the New England Conservatory of Music, has now been diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a condition that decreases her chances of having children unless she loses weight. Determined to expand her family and live life to the fullest, she joined The Biggest Loser season 11.

-Tara Costa, a finalist on The Biggest Loser season 7, served as Olivia's inspiration to join the show.
