As the winner, Olivia took home a grand prize of $250,000. Speaking to People.com after the win, the 35-year-old admitted, "For such a long time, I didn't even let myself imagine winning. I will say the last few weeks I was really pushing towards the finish line and I thought about that confetti!"

She went on sharing, "A lot of people told me to visualize that confetti. Man, I have to tell you, it was not even anywhere as good in my mind as it was tonight. It was just fantastic."

During the finale which was aired on Tuesday, May 24, it was also confirmed that Anna Kournikova will join the reality show next season. The tennis player will replace trainer Jillian Michaels.
