Britney Anderson from "Biggest Loser 2016" is one of the contestants featured in Season 17 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is teamed up with her aunt, Tonsheia "Toy" Grandison. Anderson is a health unit coordinator, as well as a make-up artist and hairstylist, from Kissimmee, Florida. Her starting weight is 253 lbs.

At 27 years old, Britney Anderson says going on "The Biggest Loser" represents "starting over my life for me." The oldest of three children, she was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and raised in Orlando, Florida. Her father died of a heart attack when she was just sixteen years old, prompting her to take on a much bigger role in the family, working and helping her mom with her younger siblings.

Though she was an athlete and captain of her volleyball team in middle school, she started gaining weight when she was eighteen due to a poor diet and lack of exercise. She also had a busy schedule juggling school and work while studying cosmetology at the Aveda Institute of Orlando. Her "aha moment" came when she bought a pair of pants and then couldn't fit into them just a month later. Now 253 pounds, Britney looks forward to running, playing with her nieces and nephews without getting tired, and being able to walk confidently into a room without feeling like she is being watched because of her size.
