Who was Brandi Mallory?

Brandi Mallory was a former reality TV star, makeup artist, and motivational speaker who died on November 10, 2023.

She was 32 years old. She was best known for her appearance on the ABC show “Extreme Weight Loss”, where she lost 151 pounds in one year.

She was also a proud member of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority and a graduate of Clark Atlanta University.

She inspired many people with her weight loss journey and her positive attitude.

In the interview, she revealed that it was the death of one of her sorority sisters at the age of 29 that prompted her decision to lose weight.

“I was literally waking up every day like… this may be my last day waking up, like, I don’t know what’s going to happen for me,” she said. “When it’s playing on your mind that I might need to do something about my weight, because I’m afraid I might die too, then you might need to pay attention to something like that.”

She went on to share in the interview that she saw a casting call for The Biggest Loser, and while she didn’t get picked for that show, the producers sent details about her to Extreme Weight Loss. “Literally every footstep since then has been God. I prayed over that application before I sent it off; I prayed every step of the way,” she said at the time.

On the show, Brandi Mallory revealed that at her heaviest she weighed around 329 lbs.

During her time on Extreme Weight Loss she competed in the Half Ironman, a fitness challenge that saw her swim, bike and run for a combined 70.3 miles in less than eight hours.
