Other contestants have complained about mental and physical abuse, noting that they weren’t open about it initially because they were made to feel privileged about having the opportunity to be on the show.

There were then some who seemingly took their journey too far, such as Rachel Fredrickson, who was accused of taking her weight loss over-the-top by fans after showing her showing 155 pound weight loss, which brought her down to 105 pounds.
