Anna Winter’s Biggest Loser weight loss a gain for Moree

MOREE businesses have joined as one to support Anna Winter, who plans to put Moree on the map as a contestant on Network Ten’s Biggest Loser: Transformed.

The reality TV series premieres at 7.30pm tonight and has drawn together 16 contestants all with common goals – weight-loss and mental well-being.

But when she decided to audition for Biggest Loser: Transformed, there was one other cause that Anna wanted the rest of Australia to know about if she made the final cut, and that’s the love she has for Moree.

Ms Winter knew that if selected to star on Biggest Loser: Transformed, publicity and marketing would be huge.

And while she is there primarily to lose weight and regain fitness, she vowed she would let viewers know about the town she loves once she stood in front of the cameras – and on the scales.

And Moree is getting right behind Ms Winter, who weighed in at just a tick over 117kg when she signed up as a contestant.

Moree signwriter and graphic artist Belinda Shervey – one of Ms Winter’s best mates – has been busy during the past week making Moree locals aware that they have a bona fide celebrity in their midst.SoBestCoffee
