Biggest Loser UK Trainer Jumps To Her Death

The trainer in the UK version of Biggest Loser, Angie Dowds jumped to her death this week in England. This morning though was the first time police had confirmed it was her body that had been found about an hour after someone reported to police that they had watched a woman jump off the bridge. Angie had been on the show since it started back in 2005, but had been depressed about breaking up with her girlfriend to whom she was engaged. Dowds had been suspended from the show after telling her dieters to only eat nuts and apples.

Wow to love someone that much that you would commit suicide because they are no longer in your life.

way to try to kill the contestants becuase you got dumped? Scary.

Hope these networks do a better job in vetting these trainers.

Truly, very few people commit suicide because of ONE thing or event, such as a breakup...but often such events are the final straw for people with clinical and debilitating mental illness.
RIP Ms. Dowds.

Reality TV attracts narcissists of all stripes; some dangerous only to themselves, some to others. And these are the people our kids try to emulate.

Well, that's just sad.

One of the contestants was on the radio here this morning and had visited her last week, she had not split up with her girlfriend. A tabloid reported that here and everyone seemed to run with it.
She was also reinstated to TBL in the finale, and apologised for her actions. She seemed to have a tough life and battled addictions for years.
