Ali Vincent first made headlines when she shed 112 pounds to become The Biggest Loser's first female winner in 2008. Now, she's back in the spotlight for a struggle known to many previous contestants.
In late April, the Arizona native took to Facebook to reveal to fans that she had regained most of the weight she had shed on the show eight years earlier. "On April 16th I did one of the hardest things in my life I joined Weight Watchers and weighed in close to the weight I started at on The Biggest Loser. I swore I would never be there again, be here again. I couldn't imagine a day again that I would weigh over 200 pounds," she penned in a lengthy message. "I feel ashamed. I feel embarrassed. I feel overwhelmed. I feel like failure."
Then, in October, Vincent revealed she had been sexually assaulted while getting a massage and kept the trauma a secret. "I haven't talked about it because it's not something you just talk about," she said during a segment on Oprah: Where Are They Now?. "A lot of things have changed over the last couple of years in my life. I moved here, to Northern California. My routine completely changed. I've realized, over the last year, as I've gained this weight, it was so much of my life slowed down, that a lot of stuff came up that I just hadn't dealt with."
