Elizabeth Ruiz was a weekly fan favorite on the NBC show The Biggest Loser. Elizabeth at her heaviest weight was 250lbs. When she began the show in May 2010, she weighed in at a whopping 244lbs. At the initial tryouts, all the contestants were put through numerous challenges including doing 500 stepups. When Elizabeth reached stepup number 360, she fainted and was stricken with a severe asthma attack and was rushed to a local Boston hospital in an ambulance. She showed such strength and effort that even though she didn't complete the 500 stepups, NBC executives called her and offered her a spot on the show.

During the show, she was the darling on the ranch that all her fellow contestants liked, but the trainers went the other way and rode her even harder because they felt she was being babied by the other contestants. This is where  half of America loved her and the other half sent her hate mail. She became a character on the show that probably recieved more camera time than any other contestant on the show.

At the finale of the show, Elizabeth lost over 75lbs and gained the love and respect of America.She is now making numerous personal appearences at all types events including,motivational speaking, autograph signings,grand openings,health & fitness expos etc.
