Take a Look Inside Maurissa Gunn's Weight Journey: The Bachelor Star Reveals Shocking Weight Transformation!
The former Miss Teen Montana and the controversial contestant of The Bachelor's 24th season, Maurissa Gunn, has been revealing quite the weight transformation lately. While the reality star's weight loss journey has received some mixed reactions, the story behind her undertaking has brought her utmost support from fans.
Gunn was born on 2 June 1996 in Lauren, Montana. The Bachelor star works as a patient care coordinator at a plastic surgeon's office. Despite not getting much screen time on TheBachelor with Peter Weber, as she was eliminated from the show within a week. Gunn has appeared as one of the most talked-about stars of the season; she later returned for the season 7th of Bachelor in Paradise.
"I Gained-Then Lost," Says Gunn!
Gunn says competing in the pageant as a young girl destroyed her self-confidence and relationship with her body. The reality star started competing in pageants in her sophomore year; even though she won the coveted Miss Teen USA in 2013, she refers to it as the darkest period of her life.

Maurissa was a chubby kid growing up; she had a very athletic, muscular built. The Bachelor star says she didn't felt insecure about her body until she was exposed to the mean comments after becoming a known face. In the years that followed after her victory, Gunn went through a fluctuating weight journey.
The reality star recalls weighing about 120 pounds as a kid. While she was competing in Miss Teen USA, she developed an eating disorder and was deemed underweight. After experiencing both extremes in her journey, Maurissa now shares her story and advocates a healthy and fit lifestyle.

The former Miss Montana is being called names and basically is accused of two-timing. In her latest Instagram posts, Gunn stands her ground and shuts the trolls smoothly.
