Mini Bio

Daris was always an athlete, playing lineman and throwing shot put and discus, and always the big guy on the team. Daris thought his size was a sign of strength, but always felt self-conscious about his weight. He has never had a girlfriend, even though he gets a lot of attention because of his curly hair and his humorous T-shirts. He enjoys being the center of attention and making people laugh, but his weight gives him little confidence with women. Daris wants to lose weight and prove to himself that he deserves one of those beautiful women who is always playing with his hair. Daris is ready to be healthy and raise a family and live a long, happy life.

Other Spellings Darris, Darius, Dariss, Doris, Georges

Darius has always been my favorite. Just a guy trying to make his way not looking to use anyone or cheat his way there. GO Darius!

After watching the entire season (almost) my attention has ALWAYS been drawn to Daris. After last nights episode I had more compassion and heartfelt feelings for him that I ever have with anyone on this show. I can truly see the man he is becoming with every weight loss and I truly believe he has what it takes to win. He is the epitomy of a good ol' boy through and through and his friends and family are LUCKY to know him. I hope everyone voted for him, because I think he has taken the MOST out of this journey and I can't wait to see him at the finale. And as Cristy said before... I am JEALOUS of the girls in OK who know him and will get to know him even better now! Good luck Daris!

I first saw Darius on the Biggest Loser, I saw how sad he was but hid it with his cute small and joking ways and yes I loved his curly hair, after seeing him lose weight week after week, he grew more handsome than ever. I can't wait to see him on makeover week and see his eyes shine and lovely smile. I am already jealous of all those Ok women going after him when he returns as the winner of the Biggest Loser..... I am rooting for you Darius may you make OK proud.
