The television camera loves Toccara Elaine Jones.
And she just loves it back.
The incredibly shrinking plus-sized beauty, known just as Toccara, first gained attention in Cycle 3 of Tyra Banks' wildly popular reality series 'America's Next Top Model.'
Since then, the Dayton, Ohio native diva has appeared as a spokesperson for Ashley Stewart clothing, bared most of her all for black lad mags King and Smooth, starred in VH1's health-centric 'Celebrity Fit Club,' guest starred on numerous episodes of 'The Tyra Banks Show' and other UPN-associated sitcoms.
She also started her own "Big & Fabulous"t-shirt line and even hosted BET's 'Black Carpet' and the forgettable game show 'Take the Cake.'
A major advertising campaign came in the form of the Rocawear clothing line's "I Will Not Lose" project. (Video below.)
And there's more where that comes from.
Now we'll be seeing much more of her on the new season of 'Celebrity Fit Club.' (Well, not as much as in the photo on the below. But maybe.)
The battle of the bulge will get a new twist with 'Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp,' which premieres March 13 at 9 PM.
That is Toccara's 27th birthday too.
This go round, a leaner Celebrity Fit Club cast – including Tina Yothers, Willie Aames, Dustin Diamond, Erin Moran, Sommore, Brian Dunkleman and A.J. Benza – will compete to lose the last 10-20 pounds.
Their personal reward? Burn fat, get buff and look better naked.
Celebrity Fit Club favorite Drill Sgt Harvey Walden IV is along for the ride once again, and psychotherapist Stacy Kaiser.
According to a network rep, ANT returns for his sixth season as host and will present $150,000 in cash and prizes to the team that achieves the greatest "Fit Factor" – which is a new measure this season that takes into account the loss of not just body weight, but body fat as well.
