Dozens hoping to win spot on NBC's `Biggest Loser'

By Tracy Jan, Globe Staff | July 2, 2006

They want to feel attractive and go on dates. They want to regain self-esteem and live longer. They want to drop, in some cases, more than 200 pounds. And they are willing to do it in front of millions of viewers.

Yesterday, more than 80 people gave up hours of their weekend to stand in line at The Rack in Boston's Faneuil Hall for a shot on NBC's ``The Biggest Loser." The reality television series gives 14 extremely overweight participants the chance to overhaul their diets and exercise habits to shed pounds during a 10-week boot camp at a Los Angeles-area ranch. The prize: $250,000 to the person who loses the greatest percentage of his or her body weight.

``It gets you really motivated," said Pascale Martineau , 33, who hopes to lose at least 100 pounds. ``You see someone who's 400 pounds running 5 miles, and you think anything's possible."

Laylonda Moss , 22, told casting directors yesterday that she is tired of her older brother yelling out ``Big Fillet" when he is trying to get her attention in public. Moss recently began taking pills for high blood pressure and realized she needed to change her lifestyle.

``I need to regain my health, lose the nicknames, and lose the weight," Moss said. ``I'm too young for hypertension."

For Matthew Sullivan , 23, the show is his last attempt to lose weight before considering gastric bypass surgery. He auditioned once before, in January, for the show's third season.

At 6-foot-3 and 460 pounds, he wants to become thinner so he has the energy to play with his 3-year-old.

``I can't run around with my daughter much," Sullivan said. ``I get tired and out of breath chasing her. I want to see her graduate and get married. I don't want to croak on my deathbed when I'm 26."

Mike LaPlante , 24, said working the graveyard shift as a security guard at Raytheon has contributed to his weight gain in recent years. LaPlante, who now weighs more than 400 pounds, said he feels embarrassed when he cannot squeeze into restaurant booths and seats at Fenway.

LaPlante's mother begged him not to go on television because she was afraid he would make a fool of himself, he said.

``She probably looks at it like a freak show," LaPlante said. ``People look at you anyway and you hear snickers all the time. I've got nothing to lose."

Stiles I get blown away by the amount of weight loss they have. I have to keep reminding myself that they are under constant doctor supervision while at the ranch. That one guy lost 23 lbs in one week. It took me 3 months to lose that much. (Take that Doc. Will...not all of us feed watchers got fat this summer. :P )

'Biggest Loser' Sweethearts Tie the Knot

Couple wed in private ceremony on the beach

September 20 2006

Suzy Preston and Matt Hoover

"The Biggest Loser" winner Matt Hoover and second runner-up Suzy Preston may have lost 252 pounds combined, but they've gained a life partner.

The reality show sweethearts were married in a beach ceremony in Jamaica on Tuesday, Sept. 19, reports People.

Although the way they met and how they got engaged were both televised, the couple kept the wedding a private affair with only immediate family members in attendance.

Preston wore a Renee Strauss white beach wedding gown, while Hoover wore khaki linen pants and a white buttoned-up shirt. Both bride and groom were barefoot.

The couple plans to stay in Jamaica for their honeymoon.

Hoover and Preston, both 30, met on the second season of NBC's popular reality show that push overweight people to lose weight and gain self esteem. Behind the scenes, their secret romance blossomed during the eighth week of the show. After the finale, in which Preston was the second runner-up, they had their first date and have been inseparable since, even making an appearance together on NBC's campy soap opera "Passions."

In March, Preston accepted Hoover's live proposal on "The Today Show."

"I have gone through a lot of changes in the past year," he said at the time. "I want to keep changing, but I want you to be by my side."

Preston cites their shared experience as the key to their chemistry.

"I saw him at his worst, absolutely. And he saw me at my worst," she says. "We have a lot in common. Going through something like we went through is life-changing. We are not the same people we were before all this and we are both at a point in our lives where we know what it's like to be fat and miserable -

I felt bad for the first girl to be eliminated, Jen I think her name was. She got berated by that one girl, but justifiably so for not working as hard as the others to lose weight for the first weigh in. She couldn't even argue back b/c she knew she didn't put in the effort. I was happy to see though that she continued with her regimen and lost 66lbs total. She looked so good!
