Rachel Frederickson, a 24-year-old voiceover artist who began Season 15 of “The Biggest Loser” weighing 260 pounds, lost 155 pounds — 59.62 percent of her body weight — to become this season's champ and add $250,000 to her bank account.

“It’s that moment where I had to say, ‘I’m going to embrace being me, and being different,’” Frederickson told host Allison Sweeney before she stepped on the scale for her final weigh-in. “And just choosing to own my past and move forward in this life, and knowing that I can take control and do anything that I want … it’s been amazing.

“You know, it’s okay to ask for help, it’s okay to follow your own path,” she said, before giving a shout-out to her supportive mom in the audience.

Runner-up for Season 15: 43-year-old project manager David Brown, whose 222-pound weight loss led to what Sweeney called the most incredible makeover in “Biggest Loser” history. Brown didn’t snag the big prize, but he shouldn’t be surprised if a few modeling offers come his way.

Ditto third-place finisher Bobby Saleem, 28, an attorney who shed 188 pounds and came out to his family during the competition.
