There is no doubt that Michelle Bridges is the most successful reality TV star in Australia today. She has built a $53 million empire off the back of her role on The Biggest Loser. Now the Daily Telegraph are alleging former host of the show Ajay Rochester took to Facebook to say that Michelle Bridges stole her ideas. I can’t seem to find the Facebook status update that says this.
Anyhow Daily Telegraph writes:
Ajay is claiming she “stole all of my business ideas” including her 5 Minute Diet Book.
“She spread lies about me until everyone hated me, she leaked bullshit to the media and my bosses until she was a top dog and ‘karma’ seems to have done nothing but reward her,” she wrote in the online rant.
Through her management, Bridges declined to comment on Rochester’s claims yesterday.
Rochester said her 5 Minute Diet Book was published a year before Bridges and added she also had an online weight loss forum before she joined the Biggest Loser cast.
“People forget even before biggest loser I had healthy body club,” she said.” An online network for women (who) lose weight.”
“I don’t begrudge her the money I just hate the way she treated me when we worked together,” the mother-of-one told the Daily Telegraph.

Ajay Rochester revealed yesterday that she is again battling with her weight and thinks it is killing her.
The former The Biggest Loser host is currently in the US and is having a hard time not going into the fast food chains. Like her idol Oprah she has had a up and down battle with her weight for decades.
She told Daily Telegraph (via an interview on the Kyle and Jackie show) about her struggle:
The one-time host of The Biggest Loser-turned-diet guru admitted today she has gained one kilo a week for the past 48 weeks thanks to daily trips to fast food restaurants in LA where she is now based.
Describing herself as “disgusting”, Rochester – a mainstay of women’s magazines who regularly feature photos of the ballooning former TV host – even details her daily diet of pancakes, bacon and hamburgers.
“To be really blunt I can eat a whole heap of crap in one day,” Rochester told 2Day FM.
“There is this place here called Norms.
“Norms’ is called ‘Norms: Bigger Better Breakfast’.
“So it’s breakfast for 3 people. Two pancakes, big plate sized pancakes, three bacon strips, a plate sized hash brown, a plate, I’m not talking the little Macca’s ones, two eggs, two sausages.
So I’ll eat that. Then I just lie down all day because I can’t move because my arteries are so clogged.
“And then I drive past ‘Karl’s’ and get a burger and fries. I’m laughing about it. But it’s really serious because I am eating myself to death.”
Interestingly she also reveals that even after winning Excess Baggage she was still too big for her skinny jeans.
The SMH article on Ajay also has comments from a psychologist talking about the obesity cycle.
