When Rachel Frederickson won NBC's "The Biggest Loser” competition, she startled more than just the loyal fans. Trainers, Jillian Michaels, Bob Harper and Dolvett Quince were shocked when she walked on stage. According to Us Weekly, Feb. 6, 2014, the trainers aren't saying much on Rachel's dramatic weight loss.

Trainers Jillian and Bob declined making any comments, but they did post a message to their Facebook page. Jillian posted this message, "So here it is. Bob and I want to take a moment to congratulate all of the BL contestants on their hard work. We're not comfortable commenting on Rachel’s journey because weren't her trainers and weren't given an opportunity to work with her at any point. Any questions about the contestants on the Biggest Loser should be directed to the show’s producers.”

Bob had a similar message on his Facebook page. "Jillian and I want to take a moment to congratulate all of the BL contestants on their hard work. We're not comfortable commenting on Rachel's journey because we weren't her trainers and weren't given an opportunity to work with her at any point. Any questions about the contestants on The Biggest Loser should be directed to the show's producers."

The only difference between the two messages is the names.

Dolvett was Rachel’s personal trainer. He didn’t have much to say either. However he did post a response on his Facebook page. "Last night's Biggest Loser Finale has sparked a huge reaction and I do not want the day to end without addressing it. Biggest Loser is a journey which has its ups and downs. Please try not to look at one slice of Rachel's journey and come to broad conclusions. Rachel's health is and always has been my main concern and her journey to good health has not yet ended!!"

In an earlier interview with Us Weekly, Rachel related what Dolvett told her. "Dolvett said, 'You're a fighter and I saw it from you on Day 1 and I brought it out, but you did it. You accomplished it. You fought, you fought and here's your life back. You fought for it.”

According to a source for People, "”Executives honestly thought that maybe she'd look okay and that no one would notice, but people gasped."

Rachel weighed 260 pounds at the start of the show, but at the end, she was down to 105 pounds. She lost 155 pounds. This is the most weight that any contestant on “The Biggest Loser” has ever lost. Everyone is questioning whether she went too far or if she is anorexic. Rachel has been asked these questions, but she sidestepped the answers.

What do you think. Did Rachel go to far in her weight loss, or is she about the right weight?
