Biggest Loser 2nd Place – Mike Morelli

mike-morelli-biggest-loserNo one was sure until the last minute who America would vote to compete as a finalist in the Biggest Loser 7 finale. Between Mike Morelli and his dad Ron Morelli, America chose to send the show’s youngest player ever to compete against winner Helen Phillips and Tara Costa. Mike’s been an inspiration to young and old, and with a 207 pound total weight loss, there’s no doubt he’ll continue to be that.

Mike’s final weight was 181 pounds, down 53.35%. He’s anxious to begin college in the fall, and he continues to lend support to his younger brother Max.

You won! Just because Helen won the prize money doesn’t mean anything. I pulled for you the entire time. I think you showed your true self and played the game exactly the way I would have and as of the earlier comment on Kristen she wouldn’t of won anyway she couldn’t win the at home prize she wouldn’t of won the big prize. I liked her but it was true. Hope you keep us posted on how you are doing.

It does not matter, what they did… They did awesome, both loving each other, to push, to believe, they did it…. I do feel that Helen is doing something to win though…. Does not look so good… Kristen looked awesome…. Old Grandpa wow he can lift, means muscle tone. so glad he won…. Ron I hope that you continue to help son Max, he deserve to also win…. Good Luck Morelli Family

Mike, I watched you from the beginning and cheered you and your Dad the whole show. My son died 2 years ago and you remind me of him very much.The transformation was amazing to watch for you and your Dad both. I applaud Ron & Cathy for putting their children’s needs BEFORE their own. Helen may have won but she threw Shannon under the bus to satisfy her own selfish needs. Your Dad is awesome and I hope you and he both help Max. I am praying for him.
Mike you are a great person who has inspired a whole nation.God bless you and your entire family.

Way to go Helen. No one ever thought you would of won the 09 biggest loser. Mike himself took you to the finale because he didn’t see you as a threat. Good to see you prove everyone wrong. Mike, good work hope all goes well for you and your brother, however I didn’t like the way your farther went about eliminating Kristen. Lastly, week 17 you and your father said you were going to win.
Never underestimate anyone mate ! haha

Mike, you’re awesome. What you’ve overcome is unbelievable. I don’t know you from ‘adam’, but just know that there was this girl from Philly that lives on the coast in NC, and she was pulling for you and your dad from the beginning. Your story moved me, and to see what you’ve accomplished, well, it’s just awesome.

Good luck to you sweetheart, you’re going to accomplish great things, the world truly is your oyster. I admire you, I’m so happy for you and your father and I wish you the best.

ps. you have bloomed into a gorgeous young man – killer smile Mike : )

come on people……backstabbing? voting your daughter off? It was a game! I personally wanted Mike to win, but they all deserved it. I just felt that each of the finalists had experienced a decent weight but Mike and he looks amazing! You are incredibly handsome and now you can enjoy it. What you won is better than money!

Mike, you are a real winner. I’m a 66 year old “grandma” and you reminded me of my 21 year old grandson, not in weight but that great smile! You had my vote the entire season. It was amazing to watch you grow and mature during the show and such a compassionate young man. I pray that you keep it off and may your dreams come true. what an inspiration to our youth! God bless you.
