A former cheerleader turned teacher named Rachel will be the focus of Extreme Weight Loss on July 28. According to the TV promo, Rachel has been trading in pep rallies for pepperoni. The once bubbly cheerleader is now overweight. Rachel says she feels like “a waste of talent, a waste of a human being.”
Lucky for Rachel, Chris and Heidi Powell of Extreme Weight Loss will help her lose the weight and inspire her to tap her talent. They give her the opportunity to choreograph a dance routine for hip hop artist Ne-Yo. Ne-Yo is promoting his new album NonFiction 2015. The day after the Extreme Weight Loss episode airs, he’ll perform live on America’s Best Dance Crew: Road to the VMAs on July 29, 11pm. Extreme Weight Loss airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC.
