Hope Wright 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 husband, Colby Wright. Hope is a housewife from K'Ville, Georgia. Her starting weight is 232 lbs.

Hope Wright says her biggest motivation for going on "The Biggest Loser" was getting healthy and having a baby. "My turning point," she says, "was my obstetrician/gynecologist telling me I will never have a baby at my weight and with my health conditions." Hope was born and raised in Patterson, Georgia, the middle child of three children. She received her bachelor's degree in psychology from Brewton-Parker College and says she has been overweight most of her life. "The circumstances that have made me gain weight are my daddy dying and also not taking care of myself."

Now 35 years old, 232 pounds and suffering from type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, she is ready to get healthy along with her husband and teammate, Colby. Once she loses the weight, she looks forward to getting pregnant, being the best wife and mother she can be and enjoying life to the fullest. She also wants to finish going to school to become a nurse practitioner so that she can encourage others to live a healthy life.
