The Biggest Loser Next Generation - Robyn & Katie
Lovable Tassie “sheilas” Robyn and Katie Dyke have won both the hearts of all Australians and the title of The Biggest Loser: The Next Generation 2013, shedding a combined weight loss total of 86.6 kilos over three months.

In the most nail-biting weigh-in across the eight seasons of The Biggest Loser Australia, viewers saw the mother and daughter team beat out Victorians Gerald and his 15-year-old son Todd by just 0.07% of their body weight.

Forty-five-year-old Robyn’s love of potato scallops, party pies, pasta and soft drink saw her tip the scales at 112.1 kilos when the competition started. Tonight, she weighed in at a mere 73.1 kilos, having lost a staggering 34.8% of her total body weight. Over the years, Robyn has tried to shock her daughter into losing weight. But tonight 19-year-old Katie proved she had the mindset to do it herself. Having lost a whopping 47.6 kilos off her original 136.8 kilo frame, she is now one step closer to fulfilling her dream of joining the army.

Robyn and Katie are lighter, healthier and wealthier, taking home the $200,000 cash prize for winning The Biggest Loser: The Next Generation.

Asked what winning means to her, Katie replied: “Not nearly as much as getting my life on the right track. I never thought I’d make it to finale as a finalist, let alone have a fighting chance for the title.” On their victory, trainer Commando Steve added, “Robyn and Katie were fantastic to train and mentor. I knew from the moment they entered the house, they had what it took to win the title. The trials and tribulations they went through on their journey, have changed them for the better and I’m really pleased that life moving forward for the girls is looking brighter than ever.”

The green team’s Gerald lost 56.4 kilos, making him the highest losing individual. Together with his son Todd, they scored a $30,000 runner-up prize for their combined weight loss of 94.2 kilos. The third prize of $10,000 was awarded to Queenslanders Richard and Amber, who dropped 71.7 kilos collectively.

Three months ago, nine families started the weight loss journey of a lifetime when they arrived at The Biggest Loser: The Next Generation house. With a combined total weight of 2500.7 kilos, the highest total in the history of The Biggest Loser Australia, and with Big Kev the heaviest contestant in history of The Biggest Loser worldwide at 254.7 kilos, the families embarked on a physically demanding, emotionally confronting and mentally challenging voyage of self-discovery, all in the hope of breaking the cycle of generational obesity in their family.
