Personal trainer for the ever popular, Lose it! reality show, Jillie Maxwell is up for the most important award of her career. And she’s competing against the biggest b-eye-itch she’s ever met. Fortunately for her, she has the sexiest man alive in her corner. Problem is, each and every one of them has a dirty little secret that could tank a career.
For the contestants, the race is on to lose the most weight and win everything. For the staff of the popular weight loss show, the clock is ticking to the culmination of their lies and the possibility of losing it all.
Will the Biggest Poser win? Or will the lies just grow and grow until they sink the whole show? Only one thing is certain. Whatever happens, it’s gonna be an entertaining ride!
Jillie Maxwell has been one of the trainers at the Lose It! Ranch for over three years, and has helped many in their quest to lose weight. This year she will be in competition with Deva Banks , a new trainer for the title of Master Trainer, USA. Jillie and Deva do not get along especially since Deva's demeanor is very abrasive, and Deva lets her know that she is going to win. Jillie wanted to win just to shut Deva up, and she also wanted to get to know Brandt better.
Brandt Parkerson is the new Chef who was brought in to help the contestants understand and learn how to cook tasty yet nutritious food. Brandt has been somewhat in love with Jillie for over three years and is happy that he now has the opportunity to work for her. Brandt is a chef but he also has a secret that, if it came to light, would be disastrous.
The Biggest Poser is modeled along the lines of TV's The Biggest Loser. Jillie's job is to give her team positive reinforcement and win the competition against Deva. The only problem is that someone is trying to sabotage her and the program. Deva is like Jillian Michaels, she is abrasive and hard on her team members. However, Deva is not what she seems and the finger of suspicion is pointed at her. The Biggest Poser moved somewhat slowly at first then started to pick up as the mystery as to who is sabotaging them is brought to light. Jillie and Brandt are enjoyable characters and Deva is the one you want to hate because of her attitude. The Biggest Poser was a pleasant read, this reader would have liked for it to move just a bit faster and have Deva's character fleshed out a little more.
