Hannah Curlee

The Biggest Loser Season 11 Runner-up

Hannah will bring her inspiring story of life-changing weight loss and how you too can accomplish those goals that feel so out of reach.

Hannah Curlee is half the woman she used to be – or 51.6% of her former self, to be exact. Curlee and her sister Olivia Ward were the top two finishers on Season 11 of NBC' Biggest Loser reality show.

By the show’s end Curlee, who is now director of health engagement for H2U, had dropped from 248 pounds to 128, a 120-pound loss. For viewers, the transformation was startling. For Curlee, it was life altering.

The Houston native was a homecoming queen and accomplished athlete before an accident at age 20 resulted in back surgery and the beginning of life on the sidelines. Twelve years and dozens of pounds later, Hannah started her journey back to good health when she and her sister snagged a couple of spots on the “Biggest Loser.”

During her nine months on the show, support from back home was one of Curlee’s biggest sources of strength. Letters and emails from former colleagues, doctors, nurses and other staff at Hospital Corporation of America, H2U’s parent company, buoyed her spirits and kept her focused on her goal. Today, Curlee is committed to paying forward the help and support she received.
