With the Bachelorette just wrapping another season of what will no doubt end in tabloid headlines of broken hearts and promises, the Biggest Loser is announcing another match made in weight loss heaven.
From the recent season nine, Ashley, a finalist, and Koli, the at-home winner, have let the public know that they are in love. A little surprised? We were too! A lot of fans, including us, were anxiously waiting to hear that season nine winner Michael Ventrella had won not only the $250,000 but also Ashley’s heart. Michael has confessed in the past that he and Ashley are nothing more than very good friends.
Ashley’s Facebook album is stocked with photos of the happy, beautiful couple. And while there is not a relationship status set, her profile image is a self-taken photo in the car of the two together.
Season nine didn’t only produce this couple, it was also responsible for matching Koli’s cousin Sam with Stephanie. They now live together in West Hollywood.
The Biggest Loser has almost the same reputation for matchmaking as it does for significant weight loss. There’s some good love juju on that ranch, and future contestants might be just as apt to apply to get their weight under control as they might to get hooked up.
Past love-matches made on The Biggest Loser, and still going very strong, include Daniel and Rebecca from season eight, Antoine and Alexandra from season eight (he proposed on stage during the live finale!), and Matt and Suzy Hoover from season two.
