|Deni Hill with Season 12 at home-winner Jennifer Rumple.|
I hope that this time, there viewers will get a chance to see Deni and other fan favorites from past seasons who will be in the audience. She also attended last season's finale but was never introduced during the show.
But seeing some of those great past contestants will only underscore how disappointing this season has been. The show's usual inspiration was drowned out by bullying and backstabbing.
Maybe there were a lot more moments of kindness and camaraderie, but for some reason the show's editors chose to air more of the controversy.... and Conda. Viewers have complained loudly about her antics. Yet, players on the show have stuck up for her. Chris Pickler has commented, "I like Conda!" on Facebook's I Like Conda Britt Fan Page. Megan asked her to be a bridesmaid at her upcoming wedding. Interestingly, Conda voted both of them off the show! Are these people crazy, super-forgiving, or did viewers see the real Conda?
Back to Deni Hill. She's had a busy year since winning her $100,000 prize money. She's been visible in the Utah community, giving motivational speeches, and running in local 5Ks, 10Ks, and so on. She was the keynote speaker at the American Heart Association, Utah Chapter's "Go Red For Women" luncheon, and this year's recipient of the American Heart Association Gold Heart Award.
She has been busy helping others lose weight in a program called Sponsor Me Slim. You can find out more about it here, http://www.facebook.com/sponsormeslim.
