The Biggest Loser: Transformed been the biggest flop of 2017, bombing so spectacularly in the ratings that Network Ten had to bump the series to an afternoon slot.
So it's no surprise that there's been little fanfare around this season's winner, which was revealed on Monday's finale.
Tewantin pilot Lynton Della Rosa was crowned the victor of the struggling weight loss competition, taking home $100,000 in the process.
'I'm so overwhelmed; I am shaking,' he told Studio 10's Sarah Harris (via Gympie Times).

Ten program chief Beverley McGarvey told news.com.au last month that the network was 'disappointed'.
'It really hasn't resonated with audiences the way we had hoped,' she said.
'It is a very competitive time of year. There are two very established shows on (My Kitchen Rules and Married at First Sight) that are creating a lot of noise.
'We hoped it would do a lot better but it simply hasn't. We think we've given it as long as we possibly can. It will move to daytime from Monday.'
On Mondays, The Biggest Loser: Transformed was up against Channel 7's midday movie and entertainment news program, Extra, on Channel Nine.
Online betting agency Sportsbet bet last month that the long-running reality series will be axed soon.
Ratings for the show got so bad that it hit just 89,000 viewers per episode, before the numbers eventually became so low that they were no longer recorded or reported on.
