I hope this doesn’t come off as racist, but all the Tongan men I’ve ever met seem to be 300+ pounds…it appears that being “big” is a common part of that culture. Therefore I’m happy to see some Tongans finally on the show, because that will help shape the perception for others who also feel trapped in the confines of their culture. It’s not about vanity but about health and obesity is a serious health problem.

tongans may be big people, but we can move for our size…we may be over 300 but we can move just like people under 300 pounds..and tongans are quite athletic as well

You know what, good for Sione! He’s representing not only Tongans but all Pacific Islanders, especially those who struggle with maintaining a healthy weight. I am always excited to see people in our community overcoming the stereotype and ofcourse representing us :) Malie Sione!!!

This guy is a machine! He almost reminds me of Bill The Biggest Loser from season 4. I don’t think that there was a week that Bill didn’t throw up double digits. I think that with the way that Sione pushes himself he just might be the next Biggest Loser. I think that Filipe needs to push harder. He’s been doing great in his quest to bring Sione back to the ranch. But it seemed like when Sione won them immunity this week he didn’t push like he had been. Regardless, I’m officially a blue team fan! Go Blue!! Bob deserves an all out win.

Sione and Filipe are the BEST. I love their attitude and work ethic, and positive personalities. I know everyone is an individual, but all the Tongans I have met have been the warmest, most friendly, likeable people. Good luck guys, and congratulations on all you’ve accomplished so far! You have tons of fans! :)

I met him at the Biggest Loser audition here in AZ yesterday – he looks AMAZING! I posted a picture of him – I doubt he weighs over 180lbs now…

I’m a guy, and I’m not embarrassed to say that I also have the biggest man crush on Sione. He physically looks like a friend of mine from Argentina. They could be brothers. The difference is that my friend has blue eyes. Sione is determined and very focused. I hope that he win the Biggest Loser! He certainly deserves it.

I have a huge crush on Sione, too! He looks like my ex-boyfriend/best friend. I’m so jealous of his wife! He looked so good last night! They should make a Biggest Loser calendar with him, it would be his month all year! I’m so proud of him and think it’s awesome he’s trying to help his family and community get healthy now! I wish I lived in AZ so he could be my personal trainer! I could just look at him all day. Anyway, Good job, Sione! I know you’ll win the second prize!!

Good luck at home, Sione – it was hard to see you leave the show. I hope that when you get your personal training business going, you will have some kind of notice or ad on the internet for those of us in the Phoenix area. :D

I’m proud to say I’m half Samoan and Tongan, and I’m extremely happy for someone like Sione who is now become an inspiration and motivation to me and my mom.

yeah–I am married to an obese Tongan–wasn’t that way when I married him–over the years just the build up…despite encouraging healthier intake…the excuse is always “I am a Tongan”–well let me tell you once this warm, loyal, friendly culture wakes up to realize heaviness is contributing to early death via obstructive sleep apnea, loss of sleep, heart complications not to mention irritability projected to those around him, I will be more attracted to remain in this marriage. I was venting to a friend and she told me Tongans were on the show—great!!! Peer approval/pressure is a big thing in this close-knit group with a proud nationality-based identity–individualism is frowned upon–so the more who get exposed to this show–the better and maybe will save my husband and marriage. (I should be on Oprah)
