Tiffany Humpert, aka Pearls, is a single mom of a son with autism. She’s overweight and her relationship with food has led her to extremes, including starving herself. She’s now agreed to get professional help and go on Extreme Weight Loss. With the encouragement of her son who says “she’s the real hero,” and autism activist, actress Holly Robinson Peete, Pearls will be inspired to lose the weight without starving herself.
While Pearls is working hard in the gym and receiving nutritional advice from Extreme Weight Loss personal trainers Chris and Heidi Powell, Pearls’ son gets a special visit with one of his favorite WWE fighters, Seth Rollins. Extreme Weight Loss airs Tuesdays at 9pm on ABC.
