Former host of the Biggest Loser, Ajay Rochester was a passenger in a car crash six months, which caused her to gain weight while in recovery. Rochester has had a several problems over the past months since leaving the Biggest Loser, beginning with serious financial problems that left her completely broke, and now having gained significant weight because of an unfortunate accident.
Ajay Rochester has been traveling around Los Angeles promoting her new book, The Five Minute Diet, and has taken the time to talk about her obvious appears change. “It was a bit of a rough journey [after the auto accident in Los Angeles] because having had the skin cut off and gone ‘yay look at me’, and then to be prone for the first time in years, and on steroids, I put on quite a bit of weight,” Rochester said. “My neck and back were the worst. I had protruding discs. I had back surgery seven weeks ago.” The added weight was particularly frustrating for Rochester because she had just had body sculpting surgery the year before.
Despite it all, the former Biggest Loser host says that she’s never been happier. “I don’t have any money but I’m happy,” she says. “I have a few friends who lost everything in the stock market crash [in the US] recently and they talk about losing everything – but it didn’t affect me because I never had anything… I didn’t have money when I went to bed that night and I didn’t have any when I woke up the next day. But I don’t need money to be happy.”
In addition to keeping her spirits up regardless of what little money she has, Rochester is beaming because of recently fulling one of her personal dreams of being on Oprah Winfrey’s show. She also has rebuilt her relationship with her former manager, working with Max Markson again after their falling out in June. Now, she is traveling and promoting her book, rapidly losing the added weight, and hoping to get her own lifestyle show off the ground.
With all her recent troubles and tribulations, Ajay Rochester is encouraging for anyone going through a rough time in their life. If someone has similar financial trouble when injured in a car crash, it is a wise idea to seek a skilled Los Angeles auto accident lawyer to help receive compensation to pay for medical bills. Rochester was fortunate to rebound from her situation so successfully, despite putting on a few pounds. To lose the weight, she must now exercise and diet in a similar manner to the contestants she used to face everyday when she hosted the Biggest Loser.
