Moses knew he had to change his life in February of 2010 when he reached 475 pounds. He had so much pain in his legs that it hurt to get up and down, and he realized he couldn't live that way anymore. A longtime fan of the show, he was inspired by Season 8 winner Danny Cahill, and decided while watching that season to try out in Salt Lake City with his daughter, Kaylee. Moses wasn't overweight as a child. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, raised in Southern California and Nampa, Idaho with six siblings, and graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in marketing. He was big, but always athletic. Food was an important part of his Tongan culture and he eventually became obese when he was in his early 30s. Now, the married, 47-year-old father of two daughters suffers from sleep apnea and high blood pressure and weighs 440 pounds. He hopes to have a closer relationship with his wife and play volleyball at a competitive level after he loses the weight.

"The reason I started my journey to go on "The Biggest Loser" was to help my dad change his life," says 20-year-old Kaylee. Her father Moses is obese, and she wanted to do whatever she could to help him get healthy. And seeing the health struggles that her dad faced made her realize what her future might be like too, if she didn't make a big life change. Kaylee, now 233 pounds, has been overweight her whole life, which she says is due to a poor diet, no exercise, and because she was shy and lacked self-confidence. She was born in Provo, Utah, raised in Nampa, Idaho as the oldest of two children, and currently attends college at Brigham Young University, Idaho. She had the opportunity to go skydiving last year, but couldn't because of a 200-pound weight limit, so she hopes to be able to skydive and just live her life to the fullest after she gets her weight off.

Another tough Tongan team. Moses lost 41 pounds in a week (TBL record) -- WOW!! And Kaylee was kicking it on that treadmill challenge.

What's with the fat Tongans every season? It's getting boring. Let some other ethnicities share their bad eating culture.

If history tells these people anything, as soon as the Tongan team falls below the line they need to get rid of them.

It is strange they are having so many tongans now.. I like this team though. they seem to be a force to be reckoned with.
