She wasn't skinny in my opinion too...She just had visible xylophone and quite skinny arms.
I personally think she was skinny in her OC days but she's a definite pear shape with a skinny upper body and heavier on the hips. Kind of like Alexis Bleadel in her Gilmore Girls days. Also I think the fashion of the time probably didn't help.

So great to see her looking better and put together! Sure she's not skinny and I agree with the comments above that she won't go back to her OC weight but it looks like she has lost weight and looks so much better for it. Keep it up Mischa!

I've worked on this show for the past 7 seasons. I'm quite excited for this :) I've seen the really large contestants lose around 40 lbs before, meaning Mischa can lose, I don't know, 15-20 lbs maybe? This of course depends on how far she makes it through the season. I'll keep everyone posted!

Oh yes please! And if you feel comfortable, share any other info about her too - eg. is she friendly vs rude etc.

For sure! I'll share whatever doesn't break my confidentiality agreement (in which I sign over my life and [future] fist-born child essentially haha). I've been shooting with another couple out of town so I've yet to meet Mischa. I hope next week :)

I gotta say this... I am so proud of Mischa and so happy to see her going back on track with her life. Far from skinny, but looking so much better, healthier and put together. I will always have a soft spot for her, and I hope she keeps it up and makes me even happier in the future :)

Not skinny, but she has what most people would call a nice and healthy figure. Also, her legs look a bit bruised, I think they'd look slimmer if she had better skin / better blood circulation. I really hope that she doesn't want to lose weight though, whenever she's tried that in the past she went straight down the yoyo path and usually looked like a hot mess afterwards.

I seriously don´t get why anyone with those thighs would wear shorts.
I suppose those big-thighs girls love wearing shorts after losing 2,5 pounds, because they fool themselves that they already can and they try to convince the world that it looks good not only on skinny girls..Unfortunately - it doesn't...
I observe the same "syndrome" in (at? Sorry for my English...) Hilary Duff, Rihanna and Beyoncé.

Misha definitely doesn't have great proportions, but even at a slim, if not skinny weight she can look really pretty. I hope she is in a good place and can stick to whatever she's doing to get back into her "fighting" shape.

Also somehow I have a soft spot for her too and really WANT to see her looking fabulous and happy. (But definitely not in cutoffs....b/c she can look so nice in dresses & work her better angles)

I guess she has a similar body type to Alessandra Ambrosio - short legs and wide hips.
Yes, on the OC, she was very skinny up top but her legs never matched. Nevertheless, I thought she was the most stunning girl ever and when I watched an old episode the other day I still thought that. She was really unbelievable when she was young. That's why it's so sad to see what has happened to her. With Lindsay, she was never that amazing but with Mischa there's so much wasted potential.

I've been wanting to update but was a little nervous. But...fuck it, I'll be brief. All I can say is, she was not pleasant. She had the nerve to say "I only talk to producers, I don't talk to PAs." Somehow in real life her leg disproportionality doesn't come across as obviously. In rehearsals she dressed for her size, always wore long black leggings. Was also always late.

What a bitch! I'm so sad to hear that
