Jim Dibattista: Who is The Biggest Loser winner?

A devoted father, husband, and coach, Jim is the awesome contestant with a huge heart who dropped practically a whole person in weight.

Jim DiBattista is a 47-year-old youth football coach from Philadelphia. He has three sons and was part of the red team on the series this 2020 run. His wife Deb is a writer/blogger.

In the shocking reveal, Bob Harper allowed Jim to reflect on his hard work and say that he was “proud of this guy,” pointing to the image of him displayed at the start of the competition.

The side-by-side of Coach Jim now versus when he first began his fitness journey is a sobering moment.

He was declared the winner of Season 18 of The Biggest Loser on Tuesday night.

All of the contestants appearing on the show went home with a year-long membership to Planet Fitness and a personal nutritionist and access to support groups to keep their weight-loss goals in check.

DiBattista shed a whopping 144 pounds and weighed in at 241 during the finale.

Coach Jim even shared a great photo of himself from his glory days in high school, writing: “Fall of 1988 Upper Darby Royal’s Football program picture sent by a friend. Oh the neck roll, how I missed you. I wonder if this kid could beat @themicahcollum_ in anything?”
