Hoose, I am not around at night to watch the biggest loser, but have seen some ads for it. I believe that guys name is Roulon Gardner, the Olympic Champ in Greco Roman wrestling back in the 2000 games. Big Dude , a farmer from Montana. Surprized the world when he actually beat the Russian back then. How'd they get him on the show? He never was what you'd call slim and trim.
That's him Tim. As stuward said, he probably asked to be on it - being 474 when he started. You can tell he is still an animal. The guy actually inspired me because he was there to work and you can tell he knows how to work. I'm willing to bet he will win it all since I think he can out work them all. A man who knows how to be the best in the world at something, especially as intense as wrestling has to be the odds on favorite.
