Erin Willett 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 Richard Hatch, who was a stranger to her before the show. Erin is a singer and songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. Her starting weight is 238 lbs.

She was previously the fifth place semifinalist in Season 2 of the NBC reality singing competition series, "The Voice." At the time, she was a print model from Gaithersburg, Maryland. She sang "I Want You Back" by the The Jackson 5 for her audition. Blake Shelton became her mentor after he was the only judge who turned his chair around.

Willett is a girl that's always on the move. Dancing and taking road trips with her friends are some of her favorite things to do, and she once banged up her face while playing laser tag. Her love for music is shared by her father who recently passed away from pancreatic cancer. She hopes to make him, her number one fan, proud as she takes the stage.

"The Biggest Loser"

Being on "The Voice" was a career high for Erin Willett. But behind the scenes, she was also dealing with the devastating loss of her father to pancreatic cancer. To cope with the stress and scrutiny of being in the public eye for the first time, Erin turned to food, adding over forty pounds to her already-overweight frame by the time her season on Blake Shelton's team was over.

Erin was born and raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland, with an older brother, and graduated from Hofstra University, where she majored in marketing with a minor in music. She thinks bad eating habits, a hectic schedule and the struggle to balance emotional milestones, such as her father dying, all contributed to her weight gain. Tired of being ashamed of her weight, feeling out of control and having never been able to lose weight in a healthy way, Erin is now 238 pounds and ready to get healthy. Once she loses the weight, she says, "I look forward to feeling unstoppable and powerful, and taking control of my own destiny instead of just going through the motions of the day."
