Ken Andrews Reflects on Biggest Loser
Ken talks to us about training with Cara and his New Zealand bungee jump with Bob.
Following his week 16 elimination from Biggest Loser, contestant Ken Andrews spoke with DietsInReview.com about the journey. Hear him explain the relationship with trainer Cara, whom he confronted for not giving him the training he needed, and how they have a "mutual respect" for one another. "Part of what Cara did was she taught me to fight for my life and what I want." Ken also opens up about confronting his fears in the most dramatic way possible - with a bungee jump in the sport's birthplace - New Zealand! He called the experience mind numbing, but had good reason for doing it. "I was there to deal with my fears. Why not make the best attempt at that?" Ken talked about his emotional journey, and the opportunity to get a second chance at his life. He remarked that he's gone from "existing to living," and "surviving to thriving." Since going home, Ken has found the changes to be extremely positive, with the entire family on board. His wife attends spin classes with him and they've completely changed everything about their kitchen, even the way the refrigerator is arranged. Of course, a big part of Ken's journey is his son and teammate, Austin Andrews, who is still amongst the final seven. He speaks proudly of his young adult son, saying "All our greatest hopes and dreams for Austin are on the horizon." During their time on the show, Ken says he got to watch his son "grow up and become a man."Flag this Video
