FORMER Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester has hit out at the reality weight loss show, accusing producers of allegedly faking weigh-ins and promoting dangerous weight-loss practices.

In a posting on her blog, Los Angeles-based Rochester hit back at season one Biggest Loser winner Adro Sarnelli for comments he had made about Rochester, apparently calling her ''massive'' on Facebook (in a post that has since been deleted).

Under the headline: ''It's time to cut the crap!'', which paraphrases a Biggest Loser tagline ''It's time to cut the fat!'', Rochester calls Sarnelli's recent online comments (since deleted) ''disgusting, pathetic and sad''.

As her tirade continued, she claimed the show's producers allegedly allowed him to weigh in ''behind closed doors and a few days before filming so contestants had time to recover and look healthy''.
