Alex Reid from "Biggest Loser 2013," whose full name is Alexandra Reid, is one of the contestants in Season 14 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is a legal assistant from Carrolton, Texas.

Alex Reid knew it was time to change her life when she dropped out of a friend's wedding a week before the date because she was afraid that she wouldn't be able to fit in the bridesmaid dress and that her weight would make her stand out among the other slimmer bridesmaids. At age 24 and 240 pounds, Alex says, "I want to be the best me that I can be in all aspects of my life, including winning this losing battle with my weight. I no longer want to be insecure and self-conscious." 

Alex was born and raised with a younger sister in North Carolina until age 12, when she relocated to Louisiana due her parents' divorce. She ultimately ended up in Dallas, Texas, at age 14, where she continues to reside in a suburb of the city. Alex graduated from Prairie View A&M University with a degree in political science and a minor in social work, and hopes to become an entertainment attorney.

She started really gaining weight at age 18, due to her emotional eating, a fondness for fast food and soda and having to take steroids after being hospitalized for ulcerative colitis. Alex looks forward to losing weight so she can wear all the revealing clothes that summer brings, like a bikini, strapless tops and shorts, and finally feel comfortable in her own skin. She also looks forward to rock climbing, hiking and knowing exactly what size she wears.
