>>> "the biggest loser" ranch. what was with you and jillian? what was the deal there?

>> jillian? she has a real tough love approach and it doesn't necessarily work on anyone -- everyone, i should say. at the end of the day , we really got it together. unfortunately, it was my last week at the ranch. she's a great trainer. she knows what she's doing. we just had a little friction.

>> is that what led to you doing the victory dance on the scale?

>> well, that was following our chaotic last chance workout, where we screamed at each other. i was so nervous i was going home and that was to be my legacy. clearly, you can see i lost it.

>> wow! when you look at that video and you look at yourself today, can you believe it's the same person?

>> no.

>> because you look terrific.

>> put a shirt on before you do a victory dance . i can't believe it's the same person. i feel incredible.

>> how much have you lost at home?

>> i've lost 30 pounds.

>> a little over 60?

>> correct.

>> changes completely, doesn't it?

>> it really does.

>> congratulations. good luck.

>> thank you so much.

>> and continued success. pamela, it's great to have you. by the way, you can catch "the biggest loser" tonight at
