Biggest Loser’s Sam and Stephanie are Dating [UPDATE: They're Engaged!]

UPDATE 10/6/10: While shooting the upcoming “Where are they Now,” set to air during Biggest Loser 10, Sam proposed to Stephanie, and she said yes! (via E!)

Most people don’t arrive at the Biggest Loser ranch looking for love, they’re looking for a solution to their weight loss woes. However, cupid has descended upon that famous weight loss oasis a few times and delivered lasting relationships. In fact, Biggest Loser has a much better track record in the match-making department than The Bachelor. Examples include Matt and Suzy from season two and most recently Antoine and Alexandra from season eight.

For season nine, the love bug has taken a bite of Sam‘s and Stephanie‘s hearts, and they confess they are dating. In fact, the adorable duo has been flirting since they were in the final stages of casting, and made it “official” around week three.

“It slowly moved its way into hand-holding. It was very elementary-style, especially in this environment. I at least wanted to give her a kiss goodnight and make that first move. And I got denied!,” recalls Sam. Stephanie says she immediately regretted not accepting the kiss and knew she would have to initiate. “So officially, our first kiss was me kissing him. That was week three,” says Stephanie.

Word quickly spread around the ranch and everyone from fellow contestants to trainers knew about the budding romance, which resulted in some friendly teasing.

The couple is excited about progressing their relationship off the ranch and in to the real world, where they say Sam plans to move from his home in Rohnert Park, CA to be closer to Stephanie in West Hollywood. “It feels like there’s so much promise in our future,” says Sam.

I totally saw it coming! On the episode when Steph got elimintated, they were holding hands the way boyfriend and girlfriend hold hands under the table. When Steph said she fell inlove, I knew it was Sam and I was totally excited that it was!

They are so cute together! It shocked me to learn about it last night after Sam got booted out. I'm kinda glad it was him instead of Michael, because Michael still needs a lot of help - almost as if he's just starting out compared to the other guys weight.

I am really happy for them and wish them the best.

I have always liked Stephanie, she has been my favorite contestant of season nine and I was rooting for her to make the final four.

I confess that I have a bit of a crush on her...I mean she does live in West Hollywood after all. I think she's focused and has a great personality and is beautiful on the inside and out, and I was sad to see her get eliminated, but happy to see her do so well in the after shots.
