Dorothy-Marie "Dot" Jones is an athlete and actress who has had multiple roles in television. She attended California State University, Fresno, where she set records for shot put. Jones is also a 15-time world arm wrestling champion. She currently has a recurring role on the musical, Glee, as Coach Shannon Beiste, for which she was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2011 and 2012 Primetime Emmy Awards.

Jones, who plays Coach Beastie on Glee, says she was bullied when she was younger because she stood 6 feet, 4 inches and weighed 250 pounds. But she persevered and used her size to become a champion in the shotput qualifying for the Olympic Trials and later becoming a 15-time world arm wrestling champion.

'Fortunately there's a lot being done but unfortunately, there's still stuff that's getting through the cracks and it breaks my heart,' she said of the bullying problem. 'Nobody deserves to be bullied.'

Bullying is in all shapes and sizes and she is a very good example of that. Glee is a perfect spot for her to spread her message that everyone is equal no matter what
