Gina Haddon from "Biggest Loser 2014" is one of the contestants featured in Season 16 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is a make-up artist and photographer from Rowlett, Texas.

A Texas girl raised in the tradition of Friday night football games, Gina Haddon was a middle school cheerleader who continued to coach cheer for eight years after high school. Born in Dallas and raised in nearby Garland, Texas, she grew up with an older sister, who was her idol. Haddon says, "My whole life, I have always been the bigger girl, and then in high school when I was 15 or 16, I was the fat girl." She attributes her weight to stress, a poor diet, a love of sugar and sodas and having to deal with adult issues at a young age. Her life also became more sedentary after she stopped cheerleading. When she didn't fit into her work uniform and had to get one "special made" and it still didn't fit, she knew she needed to make a change.

Now 41 years old and 242 pounds, she is borderline diabetic and has a fatty liver and high triglycerides. The married mother of two wants to be healthy and fit for her 15-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son. "I want to set an example for my children," she says, "and I also want them to be proud of me." She looks forward to losing the weight so she can wear regular-size clothing and enjoy activities with her family, such as mountain bike riding, kite boarding, water skiing and snow skiing.
