Ada on 'The Biggest Loser'If you were one of the over 11 million people who watched 'The Biggest Loser' finale last week, then you got an eye full of the jaw-dropping transformation of fan favorite Ada Wong. The 27-year-old California native failed to beat winner Patrick House, but her compelling story and emotional tenacity connected with viewers and made her the undisputed fan fave of the season. Ada spoke to PopEater about losing 99 pounds on television, her much-discussed relationship with her parents and why she thinks viewers loved her so much.

Why do you think you were a fan favorite?
The fact that I didn't have much support early on. That resonated with people and they felt bad for me. It seemed like America adopted me because they saw a lack of support. It all started with me not getting a video but a lot of it was cultural and there was mis-communication. I don't want to make it seem like my parents were completely un-supportive. I was brought up a different way and they were brought up a different way. We don't usually show support through affection. The American culture is a lot more affectionate.
