Addison resident Toma Dobrosavljevic (pictured above) won the grand prize of $250,000 n NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” by one pound tonight, beating out Springfield physical education teacher Sonya Jones.
The 33-year-old Dobrosavljevic, a senior project manager, had made a promise nine years ago to his dying father that he would get healthier. He began the show at 336 pounds and during Thursday night’s weigh-in Dobrosavljevic was at 165 pounds, which translates to 171 pounds lost.
“I kept my promise,” the former soccer player said during the finale of the 16th season of “Biggest Loser.”
