biggest loser 12 finale 'The Biggest Loser' finale: John Rhode, Antone Davis or Ramon Medeiros, who won the prize?A winner was crowned on “The Biggest Loser: Battle of the Ages” Tuesday night (Dec. 13) – was it Ramon Medeiros, Antone Davis or John Rhode?

The winner was John Rhode, who started the show at 445 lbs. His final weight was 225 lbs, for a loss of 220 lbs. and 49.44% of his starting weight. Goodness.

The other two didn’t have bad showings either, of course. Antone Davis came in second. He went from 447 lbs to 245 lbs, which is a loss of 202 lbs, or 45.19%. Ramon Medeiros was third, going from 355 lbs to 201 lbs, or a loss of 43.38%.

In the at-home challenge for the eliminated contestants, the final three came down to Vinny Hickerson, Patrick Ferrari and Jennifer Rumple. Jennifer won the $100,000, having lost almost 44% of her starting weight of 330 lbs. Vinny came very close, needing only three more pounds to beat Jennifer, but she pulled it out.

Congratulations to all “The Biggest Loser” contestants, who all looked spectacular. And especially to Ramon and Jessica, who are still going strong.
