Biggest Loser has been getting a lot of coverage lately, having appeared on Oprah this past fall and then on Larry King Live this past week. One of the show’s favorite winners, Erik Chopin of season three, was absent from Oprah’s episode, saying he just wanted to hide and didn’t want to admit to friends and fans his weight gain. Then he appeared on Larry King, and America saw that the man who had lost 214 pounds on Biggest Loser, had gained it back. Erik has since gained 122 pounds.
Larry King got some love from some of Biggest Losers’ favorite contestants last night, including our very own Coleen Skeabeck! The evening talk show welcomed trainers Bob and Jillian into the studio to discuss their views on the contestants and the work they do. Larry even asked about the fit Bob throws on tonight’s episode of Biggest Loser.
Coleen and her father Jerry were remote from Cleveland, and talked about how the show changed their lives. They both look fantastic, and talked about how they continue to manage their health. Of course, you can catch Coleen every week right here!
Larry also had live visits from recent winner Michelle and new fiance Micah, as well as season five winner Ali and her mom Bette-Sue. They also heard from season three winner Erik Chopin, who has gained back more than 100 pounds since his win. See the entire Larry King interview now.
