Maurissa Gunn opens up about weight loss
During her time as a The Bachelor season 24 contestant, Maurissa made sure to speak about her body image struggles in her introduction.
She told Women’s Health:
TV always projects a particular image of what the perfect woman should look like, but I wanted everyone to know that it’s not about the size you are. It’s about being happy with where you’re at.
Eighty pounds down, Maurissa revealed in the January 2020 interview that she is at the happiest point in her life, since finding a healthy balance.

Maurissa spoke about emotional weight gain on the August 24th episode of BIP, which was praised by viewers on social media.
At the start of 2020, she revealed that she gained 80 pounds, and then lost the weight, after pageants destroyed her self image.
While competing in Miss Teen USA, she said she was “just so set on losing all the weight and getting skinny that she didn’t do it in a healthy way”.
Maurissa told Women’s Health that she developed an eating disorder which involved restricting calories and over-exercising.
She has since found a happy medium and is focused on what she enjoys, hitting the gym three to five times per week.
