“Extreme Weight Loss” Star Brandi Mallory Passes Away at 40
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of “Extreme Weight Loss” star Brandi Mallory. The talented makeup artist and alum of Clark Atlanta University tragically died in Stone Mountain, Georgia on November 9th. Although a cause of death has not been disclosed, her legacy will live on in the hearts of those she touched.
Brandi’s journey to appearing on the ABC weight loss reality show began when she saw an ad for another program called “Biggest Loser.” Even though she wasn’t selected for that show, her information was forwarded to “Extreme Weight Loss,” and the rest, as they say, is history. In an interview with Rare.us in 2018, Brandi revealed that she had prayed over her application before sending it off and continued to pray every step of the way.
After her time on the show, Brandi remained dedicated to her health journey by leading group dance workout classes. In 2018, she went viral with a video showcasing her confidence as she danced in a sports bra and leggings, proudly displaying her loose skin. Her authenticity and commitment to body positivity inspired countless individuals around the world.
One of Brandi’s fellow contestants from Season 5 of “Extreme Weight Loss,” Kim Williams Maxile, paid tribute to her on Instagram shortly after news broke of her passing. Maxile expressed how Brandi’s season had motivated them during boot camp and emphasized the impact she made on this world through her passion for body positivity.
Brandi’s final Instagram post was shared on November 3rd, where she taste-tested a Lucy Rose apple. Though unimpressed by its lack of natural redness inside, it serves as a reminder of her commitment to embracing life’s imperfections.
A memorial service is scheduled to take place in Georgia on November 19th, followed by a funeral on November 20th. Brandi Mallory’s spirit will live on in the memories of those she inspired and the positive impact she made on the world through her dedication to health and body positivity. May she rest in love.
