In extremely tragic and disheartening news, America`s fitness influencer and contestant on the US reality TV show Extreme Weight Loss, star Brandi Mallory, has passed away at the age of 40. The cause of death has not been disclosed as of yet, but the Fulton County Medical Examiner`s Office has confirmed the former reality star`s passing on November 9 in Stone Mountain, Georgia.

Mallory famously appeared on season 4 of the popular ABC series and disclosed how the death of one of her sorority sisters propelled her into losing weight at the age of 29.

She said, “I was literally waking up every day, like… this may be my last day waking up, like, I don`t know what`s going to happen for me.” 

“When it`s playing on your mind that I might need to do something about my weight because I`m afraid I might die too, then you might need to pay attention to something like that.” She added

She had also disclosed how she was interviewed for the casting of `The Biggest Loser`, and although she did not get selected for that show, the producers sent her the details of the Extreme Weight Loss. “Literally every footstep since then has been God. I prayed over that application before I sent it off; I prayed every step of the way.”

Brandi Mallory had disclosed that she was at her heaviest when she weighed around 329 lbs. During her stint on the show, Mallory participated in a task that saw her swim, bike, and run for 70.3 miles in less than 8 hours.

Brandi Mallory`s fellow contestant from Extreme Weight Loss, Kim Williams Maxile, said, “Rest in Love, sis,” she captioned the video. “To my fellow Extreme Weight Loss @extweightloss sis, @brandimallory, you will be missed. I’ll never forget that while I was at boot camp for season 5, we watched your season, and it inspired us to keep going. “

She added, “You truly made an impact on this world with your zest and your passion for body positivity. I’m blessed to have gotten to experience you in this world.”

May she rest in peace.
