The heart and soul of the Biggest Loser house might reside within Jay Kruger. He’s the house sweetheart- but is not to be underestimated. He drops real weight every week, gives more than 100% in every workout and isn’t afraid to stand up to big brother Mark or anyone else. It’s obvious that these Boston-bred brothers are working through some issues, but it’s no doubt they’ll leave thinner and repaired.

Alliances Big brother Mark takes top priority. He definitely has room in his big heart for all the other guys as well.
Jay-isms He’s a softer, gentler kind of man. Definitely in touch with his feelings and isn’t ashamed to show it. He and Mark have shared some tearful, emotional moments during Biggest Loser Couples- and will likely leave campus with a significantly stronger relationship than before. His bean-town accent completes that all-American-boy charm.
Our Favorite Moment(s)
- Replaced his theater masks tattoo with a bolder “family crest” that incorporates PRIDE!
- That fedora in Vegas
- Not letting Mark’s absence get the better of him in Week 10
