Jacky Kmet from "Biggest Loser 2016," whose full name is Jacquelyne Kmet, is one of the contestants featured in Season 17 of the NBC reality weight-loss competition series. She is teamed up with her husband, Stephen Kmet. Jacky is a high school counselor from Hainesport, New Jersey. Her starting weight is 304 lbs.

Jacky Kmet shares her biggest motivation for going on "The Biggest Loser": "I want to gain control of my life and return to the active person I once was before I gained the weight. I also want to be a positive role model for my family and show them by example." An only child, Jacky was born in Camp Springs, Maryland, and raised in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. She got a degree in psychobiology from Albright College and went on to get a master's degree in teaching, student personnel services and education leadership, and policy and management from three different universities.

Jacky says her biggest weight gain started after the death of her father when she was 26 years old, and then increased significantly with her first pregnancy when she was thirty. Her "aha moment" came when she was at the Jersey Shore with her twelve-year-old daughter and five-year-old son. Jacky heard her son say she didn't want to go on a ride because she was scared, when the reality was she was just too big to fit on the ride. Now age 42 and 304 pounds with borderline high blood pressure, Jacky looks forward to losing the weight so she'll have no limitations in life due to her size. She also wants to zip-line in Costa Rica.
