An employee of Camping World Inc. and Good Sam Enterprises LLC was declared the winner on “the Biggest Loser: Challenge America,” the NBC reality weight-loss competition currently in its 14th season. According to a press release, Danni Allen, a 26-year-old advertising coordinator from Wheeling, Ill., lost 121 pounds while competing on the show.

“From Day 1, I did not know this was in me,” she said. “I was a scared, self-conscious person. I did not know I could be here. I did not know I could get past the first workout. I didn’t know that my dreams were possible and I finally feel like my dreams come true … I feel amazing.”

When she started on the show, Allen weighed 258 pounds. She finished at 137 pounds and lost 46.9% of her starting body weight by eating healthy and plenty of daily exercise.

Besides taking the “Biggest Loser” crown, Allen took home the $250,000 cash prize.

“As a company we are pleased to share in Danni’s achievements in reaching her health and fitness goals,” said Marcus Lemonis, chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam. “She is a shining example of corporate wellness and the entire company and the RV industry was rooting for her from the beginning.”
