Eight years ago, Fiona Falkiner was a contestant on The Biggest Loser Australia and allowed viewers to follow her weight loss journey.
At the end of season one, she dropped from a size 20 to a size 12 and placed fourth.
Now a size 16, the blonde beauty has landed a dream gig as the face of plus-size UK fashion label, Yours Truly, the same brand that named David Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley the face of its 2014 summer collection.

“Life after The Biggest Loser has been incredible,” Fiona said in a new interview. “Some days I have to pinch myself and say, ‘is this real?’”
Fiona recently traveled to NYC to meet with modeling powerhouses such as Wilhelmina and Muse. She ended up signing with JAG and couldn’t believe how many agencies were interested in her.
“Life is pretty amazing right now and I’m just taking it one step at a time,” she told The Daily Telegraph.

One of her main focuses now is to continue to be a good role model to women everywhere.
“It’s an incredibly rewarding job,” she said. “I still get messages from young girls who are struggling with body image. Actually, not just young girls, even grown women who say that I help them, which is amazing.”
