*Note: Participants needed to enroll separately in each contest category to compete in more than one contest. Although two individuals (Leah Rogers and Mary Desmarais from the Body Transformation Category) lost more weight than the winner of the Weight Loss Category, because they did not enroll in the weight loss contest, they did not receive a placement in that category.
