Name: Ada Wong
Occupation: Tech Project Coordinator
Hails from: Bay Area
Why She’s A Babe: Wong is one of four contestants seeking the ultimate prize in The Biggest Loser finale tonight, and although her scores don’t have her sitting safe on top, the love of viewers may garner her a spot on the winners’ podium. But going the distance in this big competition isn’t all that makes her babealicious–nor her pretty face, which you see in the photo above.
Wong is by far one of the most fascinating, enduring, and–by all TV evidence–legit women ever to face an NBC reality gauntlet. Amidst her quest for lasting and meaningful weight loss, viewers have been treated to a strong work ethic, gentle heart, and something else we aren’t quite used to: honesty. Few people would be willing to access their most vulnerable spots–a lifelong weight struggle, the tragic childhood death of a brother, the burden of her parents’ blame for the loss, her father’s emotional deafness–in front of an often-cruel, millions-large American audience. But she did, and those of us who didn’t just sympathize likely identified with many of her challenges.
Perhaps that is why America will likely vote Ms. Wong onto the podium tonight. Not just because she shed the weight, not just because she was sweet and kind, but because she showed real integrity–a beautiful quality we don’t see often enough.
