Elizabeth Ruiz

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.
