Local Biz: Pink Ninja Becomes Spokesperson for BL Body

She's known as the Pink Ninja, a Biggest Loser Season 9 contestant, and the woman who's lost the most weight ever in one season on the show (183 pounds, 48.93 percent of her body weight). Now, Knoxville's own Ashley Johnston has one more title: spokesperson for the "BL Body by Biggest Loser" clothing line. This means she was on the air on the Home Shopping Network Oct. 21, the day the line by Australian designer Bruno Schiavi debuted. BL Body's also available on HSN.com and 4,7000 Rite Aid stores nationwide. Shapewear and workout clothes in one, BL Body comes in sizes XS to 3X and sells for $35-$75. It's different from most plus-size workout wear because of its vibrant colors, the same ones worn on the show. One interesting note: in most promo shots, Johnston's wearing a bright jacket—in yellow, not her signature pink.
